How to Adopt through The Comfie Cat Shelter
We offer a simple step-by-step adoption process.

Pick a Cat

Visit our available cats from the page on our website. You may wish to pick a maximum of 3 cats you would like to meet, or characteristics you are looking for in a cat. Please note that if you only select a single cat to meet, we do not guarantee the cat will be available at the time of your meet and greet as a potential adopter who has had their appointment previous to yours may have decided to adopt the same cat. It is important to select a maximum of 3 cats on your application.

Fill out the Online Application

Below, we offer a simple, step-by-step application. Please thoroughly complete the application after you have read through all the information available on this page.

PLEASE NOTIFY YOUR VETERINARIAN RIGHT AFTER SENDING YOUR APPLICATION AND GIVE PERMISSION FOR THE COMFIE CAT SHELTER TO SPEAK WITH THEM (this will speed up your adoption application review)

Adoption Review

Our adoption committee will review your application. We select the best match for each of our adoptees. This is why we ask you to be very thorough on your application. We do reserve the right to decline applications we feel necessary

At this time we are still short on volunteers, please be patient as we review your application.

Appointment/Meeting

If your application has been selected, we will contact you to set up a 15 minute appointment time. We only allow 2 people to come in at a time due to health reasons. At this time, you will have the opportunity to meet the cats listed on your application. It is important that you arrive on time for your appointment as we may have other appointments scheduled following your scheduled time. *Please note that you will only be contacted should your application be approved. 

Bringing Home Your Cat

Should you and your cat match the next few steps may occur. Your cat may be all medically ready to go, you sign the adoption agreement and submit payment for adoption and take your new kitty home with you (PLEASE REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR CAT CARRIER WITH YOU AT TIME OF PICK UP). Should the cat require a medical check up prior to going home with you, we would take care of that and set up an appointment for you to come back to finalize the adoption.If you have other pets in the home, we suggest you check out our resource page for tips on how to create a harmonious home in a multi-pet environment.

Adoption is a LIFELONG commitment

House cats can live up to at least 15 years of age. You must be prepared to commit yourself to this feline for the entirety of its life. You must also commit to resolving any issues that may occur during his/her lifetime. This includes budgeting of $1,000-$1,500 per year for your companion.

ALL POTENTIAL ADOPTERS PLEASE READ PRIOR

TO FILLING OUT THE ADOPTION APPLICATION

 

We do offer, for a fee, the most common feline medical tests that can be completed before the adoption process is finalized and the animal is scheduled to leave the building. These include fecal parasite tests, comprehensive blood tests, and FIV+ and FeLV (feline leukemia) tests. These tests are designed to give the adopter the best piece of mind possible. 

 

Basic Fecal test: $70 taxes included.

 

SNAP Blood Test (Basic) (FIV+ and Feline Leukemia) $95 taxes included.

 

Prep Blood Test CBC Panel (Advanced)  $200 taxes included.

 

Dental problems can occasionally occur with cats. Generally the older the animal, the higher the percentage chance of a concern surfacing. These concerns can range in severity from a simple mouth cleaning to full mouth extraction. The CCS will not be held liable for any costs incurred from having to deal with these types of medical issues. For a fee, we can book the feline in with our vet to have the dental status confirmed prior to the adoption being finalized.  

 

Dental inspection: $75 tax included.

 

I (the potential adopter) do understand that having blood work done on the adoptee does not guarantee that the animal will not have anaesthetic/surgical/vaccination complications.

 

Any retesting at a later date for any test, (fecal or blood), is the financial responsibility of the adopter. None of these testing fees are refundable if the adoption is declined after the test results have been returned.
