While walk-ins are welcome, it is preferable to set up an appointment. Our cats/kittens are at the Shelter as well as in Foster. Please contact Barb at 412-334-0924 – by phone or text to do so.
It is beneficial to complete an application upfront that you can be approved to adopt. This helps to expedite the process. Indicate on the fillable application the name of the cat/kitten if you have one in mind.
Email the application to Barb Brown – Cat Coordinator – at
firstname.lastname@example.org References are contacted and if you have an existing pet, the Vet is contacted as well.
Application turn-around is usually one day unless it is a weekend.
You will be contacted by phone or text.
Photos of available cats/kittens can be obtained on our website as well as our Facebook page.
Contact Barb at 412-334-0924 with any specific questions or for additional photos/questions of available cats/kittens. Texting is the best option.
Once the application is approved a meet and greet is set up to determine if the cat/kitten is a fit for you. If not, additional meet and greets can be set up.
If the cat/kitten is the right fit for you , you can adopt at the meet and greet or set up another date for the adoption.
You will need to bring a carrier with you.
At the adoption, the foster mom or Barb will review the medical paperwork with you and you will be given the originals.
Payment is required at adoption and is S cash or check for both cats/kittens.
An adoption picture will be taken at that time and posted on our Facebook page with your consent.
We adopt our cats/kittens to be indoor only.
We adopt kittens at 3 months or older after they are fixed and updated on shots. Cats are also fixed and updated on shots prior to adoption.
We do not approve of declawing and will not adopt to someone who will do so.
Cats need to slowly be introduced to the new home and other pets. This process will be reviewed with you at adoption.
Please contact Barb for any behavioral issues or introduction issues. We can help troubleshoot and will come to your home if needed to offer ideas.
If the cat/kitten does not work out, our policy is to take the cat back.
Please contact Barb if your cat gets out of your home and becomes missing. We can provide support to you.
