ADOPT

If you are considering adopting a rescued cat or kitten, HART invites you to visit the shelter and spend some time getting acquainted with the cats and kittens—all have been spayed/neutered, microchipped, and are current on vaccinations.

 

Staff and volunteers are familiar with each cat and will be happy to show you around and answer your questions. When you decide to adopt, our adoption application and related interview are designed to help ensure that you and a potential adoptee will be a good match.

 

What do you get when you adopt a cat or kitten from HART?

 A $400 value package for the low price of an adoption fee.

 

HART Adoption Fees

Cats, six months or older: $89

Kittens: $99

Senior cats, eight years or older: $59

Seniors for Seniors:  $0

 

HART’s Thank-You Adoption Package includes:

  • Free, post-adoption veterinary wellness exam
  • “Welcome home” packet of informational articles
  • Coupons from HART’s retail store, Lemos Feed and Pet Supply, and Maddie Mae’s Pet Pantry
  • HART’s most recent newsletter
  •  And BEST OF ALL, a pet to love.

 

SENIORS FOR SENIORS

Are you a senior citizen?  Our Seniors for Seniors program matches cats 8 years and older with people 62 years and older. Mature cats make ideal companions for mature people: a devoted pet for the senior citizen and a loving home for the senior “kitizen”—it’s a win-win. And, no adoption fee!

 

Research has shown that pet ownership benefits people of any age:

  • Lowers blood pressure;
  • Improves immunity;
  • Decreases risk of heart attack and stroke;
  • “Helps create human-to-human friendships and social support, both good for long-term health.” Harvard Health Publishing

 

SPECIAL-NEEDS CATS

Do you have room in your life for a special-needs cat or kitten?  Some of HART’s feline residents face unique challenges (special dietary or medical needs, or disabilities). Trevor and Travis were born deaf, Honey lost an eye, and Nicole navigated on three legs, yet, all four were adopted. A few cats at HART have tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). They can live long, happy lives with a few environmental adjustments. HART staff is well informed and willing to educate you about their needs.

 

WORKING CATS

Is your farm or business looking for a “working cat”?  Check with HART and we will let you know if we can help.  Although most of our cats and kittens are looking for an inside home, we occasionally take in cats who make it clear that they would prefer outside jobs!

 

Take a look at our available cats and kittens.  A good match is waiting for you!
