Mission Meow Cat Rescue & Adoptions INC
Mission Meow Cat Rescue & Adoptions, Inc. will review each adoption application and will interview each applicant, by phone or in person. If the prospective adopter is a likely fit for a particular cat, we will arrange for a meeting with the cat. Our goal is to place each cat and kitten with the adopter who is the best fit. At times, we have more than one qualified applicant interested in adopting a particular cat or kitten. To determine the best placement, we consider a number of factors, including, but not limited to the following: whether a kitten will be adopted with another kitten or alone; other pets in the household; special needs of the particular cat or kitten; and experience of the adopter. If, after meeting the cat, the prospective adopter wants to proceed, our foster coordinator and the foster parents will consult to determine next steps which may or may not include and is not limited to: anin-home visit, past or present veterinary records request, landlord contact, personal references, etc. Same day adoption may not be possible in every case. You are also welcomed to get the cat or kitten examined by a veterinarian of your choice at your expense prior to adoption. Please note this may cause a delay in the adoption by several days or weeks depending on vet availability.
Our adoption fees generally range from $50 to $200 per cat or kitten and are based on several factors: (i) characteristics of the cat of kitten (age, breed, breed mix, etc; (ii) input costs (e.g. special medical treatments); (iii) special circumstances of the adopter; (iv) special circumstances of thecat(special needs, length of time in foster care, etc; (v) and if a cat is being adopted along with another cat (or kitten Under special circumstances, we maysubsidize or waive a fee. All fees are applied to the charitable purposes of rescuing, vetting, caring for and placing cats and kittens.

This assures we can place the animal back into safe environment so they can be adopted. Adoption fees will be reimbursed at the full amount within 2 weeks of the adoption.
