Adoption Fees: Please note that these fees do not cover all of our costs. The vet hospital has gone up in price and we are forced to go up in price also. If a cat or kitten is spayed or neutered, we ask $125, and for two cats we ask $220 (which includes shots for rabies, distemper, spaying or neutering and testing for FIV and FeLV).

Our costs have changed for kittens who have not been spayed or neutered. For one kitten we must charge you $100 and a deposit of $100 that will be refunded after the kitten is spayed and neutered (you must bring in the paperwork after the procedure has been done). For two kittens unspayed and unneutered we ask $160 and an additional $50 deposit for each kitten, which will be refunded after the procedure when you bring in the paperwork. For three kittens, there’s a $200 deposit and a charge of $210. Their first distemper shot would be included.

In short:
One kitten: $100 and a $100 deposit, which will be refunded
Two kittens: $160 and $150 deposit, which will be refunded
Three kittens: $210 and $200 deposit, which will be refunded

Please note:  We ask all adopters to show a current driver’s license for identification purposes. If you own a home, we ask to see a copy of a tax bill confirming ownership. If you rent, we must have written permission from your landlord that animals are allowed on the premises. We are exercising due diligence for the welfare of our animals and hope this won’t make the adoption process too onerous.

We'll be in touch. Thanks!
