Adoption Information

PETS ARE A LIFE-LONG COMMITMENT
DO NOT TAKE ADOPTION LIGHTLY

You are making a commitment to love and care for your new pet for his or her lifetime—which could mean 10, 15, even 20 years. HEART’s goal is PERMANENT placement. We expect that when you adopt a pet you have made a decision to care for that pet for its entire life. So choose your new best friend carefully and be a responsible pet owner.

ADOPTION POLICY

We consider the adoption of any pet to be a life-long commitment of time, affection, money, and responsibility. The animal’s welfare is our foremost consideration. Many things are taken into consideration when matching a cat with an owner so that we can make the right match for both you and the cat.

Adoptions are made in the best interest of the cat and the family. HEART may not allow adoption of a particular animal if the animal's needs, personality or temperament are not suited to the adopter or the adopter's living situation.

  • You must be at least 21 years old with proof of age.

  • We require an adoption application and a pre-adoption interview to ensure that both you and the animal are a good match.

  • You must provide proof of residence.

  • You must sign an adoption contract and agree to the terms of the contract.

  • If you live in an apartment, your landlord must sign a Landlord Agreement Form.

  • You must be able and willing to spend the time and money needed to feed, house, train and provide medical care for your cat.

  • You must be willing to have an authorized representative of HEART come to see where the cat will be living.

  • Animals may be reclaimed by HEART for falsification of information on the Adoption Application or failure to meet the conditions of the Adoption Contract.
