THE ADOPTION PROCESS
Our multi-step process ensures that our animals are placed in an appropriate forever home- a suitable match for each family and an environment in which the animal can thrive and grow. Each application is reviewed on an individual basis, but we reserve the right to use our judgement in declining any application which does not match our minimum qualifications (read the Adoption Info page on the right hand menu) and our experience and knowledge of the needs of our foster animals. If at any step a Treetops Kitty Cafe - Treetops Animal Rescue representative determines that your home is not a good fit for the animal you have applied for, you may be contacted regarding other animals that more closely match your interests, life style, and family environment, or referred to a different adoption agency.
All applicants must agree to pay the adoption donation fee in full at the time of adoption, which
is needed to help recover some of the costs that Treetops Kitty Cafe - Treetops Animal Rescue incurs while rescuing the animal, fostering them, and providing them with medical care, as well as allowing us to continue to rescue other animals.
Please understand that the actual cost to our rescue of caring for a cat until adoption averages $175, so we have to rely on donations to try and fill the gap.
The adoption fee is ONLY refundable if a serious health problem arises within one week of adoption which should have been foreseen by Treetops
rescue while in foster care or while at the Kitty Cafe.
For kittens too young to have been spayed or neutered, a $50 spay/neuter deposit must be paid upon adoption and will be refunded upon sending us documentation of alteration.
