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.

Each animal’s welfare is our foremost consideration.

The following information is requested so that your adoption counselor can better assist you in the selection of a lifetime companion.

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. We recommend that you keep your new pet separate from any animals in your home until your veterinarian has examined your new pet.

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.
