Application Terms and Conditions

Thank you for choosing C.A.T.S., Bridge to Rescue. We are glad that you have decided to adopt a cat from our shelter. The following information is requested so that your adoption counselor can better assist you in the selection of a lifetime companion. Each animal’s welfare is our foremost consideration.

The cats available for adoption came here from a variety of sources. We cannot guarantee the cats’ health or temperament. All animals are examined by a vet or vet tech during their foster care with us. Their health is routinely monitored while at the shelter, however there is always a chance that they are incubating a disease without showing any clinical signs.

Be prepared that a yearly vet exam can cost up to $100 a year for a cat and is your responsibility after the adoption takes place. All of our cats / kittens have been fully vetted, including spay/neuter/vaccines/flea treatment/dewormer at the time of adoption. Declawing adopted cats is highly discouraged due to possible related health and behavior issues. If you are interested in declawing, we recommend adopting a previously declawed cat.


  • Be at least 18 years of age
  • Have a picture ID showing your current address
  • Have the knowledge and verifiable consent of your landlord (if applicable)
  • Have the knowledge and consent of all adults living in the household
  • Understand that we have the right to verify any information on this application, including a property check, and to enforce any provision of the contract in the future
  • Complete this application in full

I acknowledge that C.A.T.S., Bridge to Rescue can make no guarantees with regard to the health of the cat(s) I am adopting. This animal has come in as a stray, owner relinquishment, or as part of a cruelty case. The animal may never have been seen by a veterinarian prior to arriving at the shelter. Therefore, the animal could be harboring a disease that is not immediately detectable. Some common illnesses/medical conditions that are often associated with homeless animals include, but are not limited to, internal parasites, external parasites, and upper respiratory infections. Some of these conditions/diseases are transmittable to your pets, your family or yourself. We recommend that you keep your new pet separate from any animals in your home until your veterinarian has examined this new pet.
