Additional Information
I understand that a home visit is required as part of the application process. *
I understand that submitting an application and/or participating in a home visit does not guarantee placement. *
I am able and willing to make a minimum tax-deductible (and non-refundable) donation of $225 (or $400 if I adopt two cats) to The Cat's Meow. *
As an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, we rely solely on your donations to continue helping cats in need. All donations go directly towards the rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of abandoned and neglected cats. The minimum donation rarely offsets the cost of medical care for each cat adopted, so larger donations are always appreciated. I understand that the adoption donation is due at the time of the home visit, if approved.
I understand that The Cat’s Meow reserves the right to refuse adoption to any applicant for any reason. Should this adoption go forward, this application will be incorporated into the contract by reference. *
