How to Adopt

Our Adoptable Pets:

Adoptions: As we don't have a shelter, all our pets are fostered in private homes where you can arrange to meet them in person. You will be asked to fill out an adoption application form and submit it. A printable form can be downloaded from the bottom of this page. You will be asked to provide two references.

You must be 18 or over to apply for adoption. All cats and kittens are indoor-only pets unless otherwise specified.

***If for any reason you can't access the form, please contact our adoptions manager Kathy to send it to you. ph: 431-763-8558. Or message us on Facebook: www.facebook.com/VirdenPetNetwork

Adoption Fees:

Adults Cats: $75

Kittens (under 1 year): $100 or $150 for two

Barn Buddies: Barn buddies are adult cats unsuitable for house pets due to being too wild or feral. If you need a farm feline, please contact us to ask about availability. There is no adoption fee for barn buddies but we ask you to consider a small donation to help cover pre-adoption veterinary care, which averages $300 per cat.

Dogs: $350

Puppies: $500 or $750 for two

What's Included in Adoption fee:

Health: All pets in our care get a health examination, ear tattoo, deworming, vaccinations and boosters, spay-neuter, and testing for FIV and FelV. These services alone would cost $300 and up but are included in your adoption fee.

Spay/Neuter: If a pet is adopted before it has been spayed/neutered, adopters will receive a certificate that entitles them to have the procedure done at no cost. The certificate is valid at the Virden Animal Hospital, Redvers Vet Clinic, and Grand Valley Animal Hospital in Brandon.

Having your pet spayed or neutered is a mandatory condition of adoption if it hasn’t already been done when you take your pet home.

Settling In: After you pick up your new pet, we encourage you to maintain contact with us or your veterinarian in case you have questions about integrating the pet into your home with minimal stress. The settling-in process can take a few minutes, hours or days, depending on the individual cat and other pets in the home. Be patient with your new family member. And please ask us for resources to smooth the introduction of your new pet to your home. We're here to help make it a stress free transition!
