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!

Volunteers For Animals has paid for the animals to be spayed or neutered before they are adopted. Please consider making a donation towards our spay/neuter program. 100% of your donation will be used to spay or neuter animals from Genesee County. Donations are tax deductible!
