Many of our rescue cats have experienced neglect, abuse, suffering, and abandonment. These cats cannot speak for themselves or choose their future families, so we at Nine Lives Rescue Mission have a huge responsibility in making that decision for them. Our cats come from unknown backgrounds and we make no guarantees as to their temperaments, level of training, or health. We ask our adopters to take into consideration that pets require a lifelong commitment. When planning for a new pet, future life changes such as marriage, divorce, relocation, additions to the family, career changes and allergies, must be taken into consideration. We strive to place our cats into permanent, loving homes. Our application screening process is thorough, although we pride ourselves on processing applications quickly and efficiently
The process begins with the applicant filling out our adoption application. Our adoption processors will contact you within 48 hours and book a telephone interview. We have the right to decline any application that we feel is not a match for our cats.
Once your application is approved, the adoption processor will facilitate a meet and greet between you and the foster family who has the cat.
Please note: some of our cats require a mandatory home visit. Please be prepared for a Nine Lives Rescue Mission volunteer to visit your home.
After meeting, take some time to think about adopting. Discuss with your family openly and honestly and take into consideration how a cat will fit into your life. If you are still interested in adopting and everyone (adoption team, foster) is in agreement, we will issue a contract. A dog cannot be released without a signed contract and fee payment.
Our adoption fees vary with each cat. Adoption fees are used towards spaying/neutering, vaccination and medical costs. Adoption fees also go towards saving more lives.
After the adoption, vet records are provided to the adopters.
Adoption Fee Outline
Our adoption fees for cats range from $55 - $85.
Senior cats $55, Younger adult cats $70 and kittens are $85.
The adoption fee includes:
Rabies Vaccination Deposit*
DHLP or RCCP Vaccination
As an adopter, you are responsible for any vaccinations required after you adopt the cat. The cats we are rescuing come from unknown backgrounds, therefore Nine Lives Rescue Mission cannot guarantee the health of any animal.
Medical records are provided after the adoption and no vetting should be done until you have reviewed these records with your vet.
We accept Paypal payments, credit cards and e-mail money transfers. Payment options will be provided at the time of adoption. Simply click on the pay now button below to pay your adoption fees online.
One Last Thing
If you are interested in adopting one of our rescued cats, please fill out the application below so we can best match you and your new companion to your home and lifestyle. If you are looking for a specific breed and you cannot find it here, let us know and we may be able to help you find what you are looking for.
Please note, in the event we get more than one application for a particular cat, we try to provide the best match for the cat and the adoptive family.
Note: All applicants that currently live in a rental home must have a letter of approval from the landlord prior to submitting an adoption application. We cannot process applications without approval.
