BOOK A MEET AND GREET
If you see a cat or kitten that you are interested in meeting, please email email@example.com or call 705-878-4618 to book a Meet and Greet. Ideally your entire family should come for the visit.
We cannot "hold" an animal for a Meet and Greet or future adoption pick up days. Unfortunately, we have tried this method and too many animals have missed getting into homes because of people not showing up.
SPECIAL NEEDS CAT ADOPTION PROCESS
Step 1: Review our website for a potential match, and if you find a cat that is "special needs", please complete the application. If there is no indication of "special needs" please call or email firstname.lastname@example.org to book an appointment to view the available cats.
All the information requested on the application form is essential. Please be open and transparent for the best match! It allows shelter staff to make the most appropriate decisions for the animals and your family.
Step 2: Shelter staff will review your application. They will contact you if you are a potentially suitable home for the animal.
Due to the limited resources, only successful applications will be contacted. However, they will be kept on file for future consideration.
Step 3: A telephone conversation will occur for information sharing and question-asking. If the pet and family seem like a suitable match, an appointment will be booked for a visit.
Step 4: During the first "Meet and Greet," it is ideal for the entire family to attend as this will give an opportunity to discuss the animal further and interact with them. Multiple "Meet and Greets" can occur if necessary, or if the match fits right away, you can bring the pet home that day upon the condition of the approval from HSKL.
Step 5: Upon pick up of the pet, the adoption paperwork and special instructions will be shared. Donations are also gratefully accepted, as adoption fees often do not cover the actual cost of all the medical and special services required by the animal.
Some "special needs" cats are lucky enough to receive more than one adoption application. In that case, we must choose the most suitable family. We encourage these applicants to consider some of the other less fortunate animals still waiting for their second chance and a new home.
If you have any questions regarding the adoption process, please visit us or phone us at 705-878-4618.
PetSmart Charities has graciously supported our adoption program by providing much needed funds to support spays/neuters and enhanced medical care.
