Adopt a Cat
PETS, Inc. always has a huge selection of adoptable cats. We make every effort to assist adopters in selecting cats and kittens well suited for their personalities and lifestyles. We will ask a great many questions, not so much to be nosey, but to be certain that we have not overlooked a potential problem when recommending a new companion animal.Download and fill out your adoption application. Once you have completed your application, please e-mail it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or fax it to 803-791-1230 or bring it by our office!
We do place unaltered cats and kittens but with some restrictions. A large deposit is required and a definite spay/neuter date will set at the time of the adoption. The adopter will receive a veterinary authorization form that authorizes the veterinarian to bill PETS, Inc. for the surgery. The deposit is generally accepted in the form of a check or charge so that it can be held wiithout actually putting it through the bank. In essence, we hold the deposit hostage until the cat or kitten has been surgically altered. At that time, the deposit is voided and, if requested, mailed back to the adopter.
There is a risk involved in leaving this deposit. If the cat or kitten is lost or stolen before being altered, the deposit will be forfeited. We will use that money to spay or neuter another animal in its stead. This effectively prevents our policy from ever resulting in additional births.
With the exception of new arrivals, all cats over 4 months old are spayed or neutered before being put up for adoption. They will have received a test for Feline Leukemia and FIV/AIDS. We also provide each cat with two dewormers and all vaccines due at the time of adoption.
Kittens will have been microchipped and will have received their first vaccines and deworming. If we have access to the mommy cat, she will be tested for Feline Leukemia and FIV/AIDS. If the kittens are orphans, one kitten from the litter will be tested at 9 weeks of age. Adoptes may opt to purchase furture care from our discount Cheap Shots and Spay/Neuter Clinic or obtain their kitten's follow-up care at a private clinic.
