When you choose
to adopt one of Starlight Rescue's animals the minimum adoption
donation is $100.*
Each of our cats and kittens have already been:
~Spayed or Neutered
~Testing for FeLV (Feline Leukemia)
~Testing for FIV (Feline AIDS) for cats six months and older.
~First FVRCP vaccination. Depending on the cat's age and how long
we have had it, additional vaccinations are sometimes provided by
us; if not, they are the responsibility of the adopter.
~De-worming (tape and round worm)
would ordinarily run up a bill of well over $300. Additional donations
are always welcome, since many times we must provide medical care
such as surgery for injuries or congenital problems, x-rays, blood
panels, fecal tests, treatment for ears, eyes, upper respiratory
infections, and viruses. And remember, all veterinary care after
adopting a new pet into your family, is your responsibility for
the life of your pet.
To help ensure
that we place our cats in loving, responsible and committed homes,
we have a screening process involved in adopting a pet from Starlight.
We reserve the right to turn down potential adopters as we deem
necessary. Occasionally, a home delivery or visit may be made as
a required part of the adoption procedure.
If for any reason
you wish or need to return a cat you've adopted from us, you can
do so within 72 hours for a full refund of the adoption donation.
After that, be it months or years later, if you need to give up
your Starlight cat or kitten and you are unable to find a suitable
home, you must return him/her to Starlight. We won't be able to
refund the adoption fee, but we will place him/her in a new home.
We don't ever want our kitties to end up on the streets or at the
are for life... We're always here to answer questions and help solve
problems. By adopting a cat from Starlight, you're making a commitment
to provide love, care and medical treatment for the life of the
cat, which can be up to 20 years. Adopting a cat is a serious commitment,
but one that is rarely regretted! Please take this responsibility
seriously. If your are unable to make such a 20 year commitment,
why not become a foster parent instead?
