Adopting a pet is more than just bringing home an animal. When you adopt, you add another member to your family. You take on another mouth to feed, another living thing to look after and care for, another responsibility. We just want to make sure that everyone in the home is prepared for this process.
When you adopt from us, we will ensure that the initial care for the animal has been provided, with some exceptions. We will make the transition to your home as easy as possible. Follow up care, however, will be entirely your responsibility.
Adoption fees vary, but you will be quoted an exact price prior to finalizing any decisions. The fee can vary just due to costs of spay/neuter and any medical care in addition to the basic care that is provided prior to adopting. You can pay through PayPal, Venmo, Square (fees added), or with cash. You may be required to pay a NON-REFUNDABLE deposit to ensure a home for the animal.
Spay/Neuter (performed at approximately 12 weeks/3 pounds)
Rabies vaccine (can only be given at 12 weeks/3 pounds, so kittens younger than this cannot be adopted out)
FVRCP (feline vaccine for rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, panleukopenia)
Tested for FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus) and FELV (feline leukemia)
Fur All Kittys is a foster and shelter-based rescue. We have a majority of our cats housed at the shelter in West Mifflin, but most of our younger or sick cats are placed with fosters to receive the love and care they need to grow big and strong! We will make every effort to allow you to meet/visit the cat/kitten that you have chosen so that you both can be more comfortable. The first step to adopting is completing the online application. The application will be reviewed and you will receive a response within 72 hours. If you are selected, you will be asked to email a video of your home or have a home visit if you prefer. This is to get the lay of the land, so to speak, and see where the animal will reside. If everything appears appropriate at that point, we will reach out to your landlord (if you rent) and your references.
If you are approved to adopt, we will reach out to you and complete the remainder of the process. An adoption contract will need to be completed and signed and you will be provided a copy. You will need to bring a carrier to transport your new addition! You will receive a copy of all health records that we have available.
