Cats available for adoption reside at our adoption center or in foster homes. They are cared for by our wonderful volunteers who provide a sanitary environment, fresh food & water, exercise, love and medical attention if needed. Petfinder.com lists the cats currently available for adoption. Cats have been tested for FIV & Feline Leukemia, vaccinated according to age, spay/neutered, and treated for fleas and parasites if necessary.
Our focus is to place animals in loving, permanent homes where they will be cared for responsibly. Potential adopters or fosters are screened, up to and including home visits. We reserve the right to refuse placement of an animal for any reason. We thank you for understanding.
Adopters must be 21 years or older and willing to invest the time and money required to care for a pet. In addition to providing love and attention, regular medical care is required. Please ask if you would like more information about veterinary fees and costs.
Our animals come from a variety of situations. Some have been dumped at shelters or vets, and many are ill or malnourished when rescued. Although the animal has been in a protected environment, there is the possibility of unrecognized illness appearing after an adoption is finalized, especially because of the stress the animal may experience during the first few days at its new home. We advise adopters of the animal's known history and provide its veterinary records, but frequently we know only what the animal chooses to tell us. We cannot make any guarantee regarding the long-term health of any animal. Adoption fees are generally not refundable unless prior arrangements are made.
We ask that our adopters keep their cats inside the home. There are predators and other hazards outside that can endanger them.
If you feel that you are ready to adopt, please download and complete our Adoption Application (.doc). After completion, e-mail it to email@example.com for prompt attention. Angela or another NBCR representative will contact you to arrange an interview.
