Prior to adoption, all animals have been vaccinated and treated for internal and external parasites. Cats have been tested for FeLV/FIV and dogs are tested for Heartworm/Lyme/Ehrlichia. Animals are also spayed or neutered unless our veterinarian has indicated the procedure should be delayed because the animal is being treated for another health condition. Adopter will be required to spay/neuter kittens and puppies who have been adopted prior to six months of age. Adopter is eligible to receive a $25 refund of the adoption fee when the spay or neuter procedure has been done. In order to receive the refund, Adopter must have the procedure completed on or before the date designated in their Adoption Agreement. Refund will be mailed once CFC receives the “Written Statement of Sterilization By Licensed Veterinarian” provided at the time of adoption. CFC is vigilant in following up with adopters to confirm the spay/neuter procedure has been completed on a timely basis.
Dogs go home with a collar and if they use a special walking harness, CFC will send the harness with them. CFC also sends along a small supply of the food the animal is used to eating as well as a copy of the full medical record for adopter’s files and veterinarian.
If, at any time, an adopter is no longer able to care for an animal they have adopted from the sanctuary, CFC’s Adoption Agreement requires the animal be returned to the sanctuary. CFC will arrange to have the animal returned, if needed, at any time during the animal’s life. This is our commitment to each animal who comes to us. The adoption fee becomes non-refundable after the first two weeks of adoption.
On occasion, Caring For Creatures will offer special adoption campaigns and fees. Please check with us or visit our website news feed for any current campaigns.
While awaiting adoption, the animals live their lives in spacious living quarters and enjoy the companionship of other animals, volunteers, and dedicated staff. We choose not to euthanize healthy animals to create additional space.
