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!

Kitten 1

  • Tiger/Torti DSH
  • Baby/Female
  • Spayed with donations to VFA

These 3 were a big hit at the nursing home this week. Since they had no names, the residents collectively agreed on calling the boy Harry and the girls Sheba and Reba for the day. Harry was especially cuddly and quite the rag doll to hold and carry. The girls did a great job too. For kittens they were all exceptionally well behaved and calm.

  • White and Tiger DSH

These kittens were surrendered at Petco by a man looking for help with them. Luckily we had an opening in foster care when Petco called us to see if we could take them in. These kittens are very loving and social. They like being held like babies and having their bellies pet and offer up great purrs. They were good with other cats and big dogs in their foster home. They will fit into any indoor home.

Felix

  • Black and White DSH
  • Baby/Male
  • Neutered with donations to VFA
  • Available at Petco

He came to us as a very sick kitten whose digestive system was a wreck.  We treated his diarrhea but he was still excessively bloated after his stool had improved and his foster mom noticed he had labored breathing.  He has been seen by a vet numerous times where he has had three X-rays done (images will be available to adopter) and treated with Lasix’s for the last 35 days to remove fluid that had developed in his lungs.  The fluid in his lungs is now believed to be due to being so sick and malnourished versus other more serious conditions that were once being considered.  
He has been racing up and down his foster mom’s stairs like a normal kitten.  He was just neutered and given a clean bill of health to go up for adoption on 11/13/17. The third X-ray revealed clear lungs and no further treatment was recommended.  He will need to be monitored for fluid retention and if further labored breathing develops as he grows.  He is used to large dogs and great with other cats.  He is very active, good with using scratching posts, and a loving kitten that deserves a home willing to provide any possible medical care he may need in the future.
