Adoption Procedures

There is a $60 NON-REFUNDABLE FEE for all animals which needs to be cash or a check - NO CREDIT CARDS. If the animal is not spayed or neutered there is a $35 REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT upon proof of surgery. An adoption application must be filled out at the Shelter by the person wishing to adopt the animal. Once the application has been reviewed and approved the potential adopter may visit and meet any of the animals. All cats must leave the Shelter in a cat carrier. Please bring a cat carrier

Vaccinations

All animals older than 3 months of age are given rabies vaccine. Unless there is proof of a prior rabies vaccine, the vaccine is good for one year. All animals are given at least one dose of deworming medication. All cats receive a feline distemper combo vaccine (good for one year) and are tested for FeLV/FIV.

Cats available at the Shelter and Petco

With the opening of Petco in Batavia in September 2008, we have been able to adopt cats and kittens directly from the store. Petco has provided us with 6 cages, assists with the daily care and adoption of the cats. We are very grateful for the help the Petco staff have given to us to help promote adoption of shelter animals. It has been a huge success so far and we look forward to a long and happy relationship with the staff of the Batavia Petco Store. You can visit our cats and kittens at Petco anytime during their regular store hours. The store is located in the Target Plaza on Veteran's Memorial Highway in the Town of Batavia.

If a cat is at Petco, it will state it in the description.  All other cats are available at the Shelter. If you have any questions regarding any of the cats, please email

Spay It Forward!

Mittens may look a little different but perhaps that is what makes him so special. His nose is slightly misplaced on his face but that doesn't stop him from showering everyone he meets with face rubs and kitten hugs.

Sprinkles 2018.05.20-2-2.jpeg

Sprinkles

  • Calico DSH
  • Adult/Female
  • Spayed with donations to VFA

Sprinkles came to the shelter when she was not allowed in her owner’s apartment.  She was very unhappy, losing her home and her person, and being in a strange place.  Her real personality was hidden by anxiety.  She went to a foster home for some R & R and her true self blossomed!   
Sprinkles is a personable and engaging girl.  She is young and lively enough to be entertaining yet without the kittenish crazies.  She loves people and actively seeks interactions.  She likes both women and men.  She loves to sit on laps, and will sit next to you while you watch TV, read or work on the computer.  Her foster home is a room with windows and she loves to watch the birds.  When there are really good birds she will cackle at them.  She is easygoing and happy to be picked up and handled.  She has been totally reliable in using her litter box. 
Sprinkles is not a couch potato.  She would like a home with a person or people who will interact with her and give her the attention and love she deserves.  And she will certainly return it.
