Kitten Rescue of Mason County | Adoption policies

Adoption Policies

Thank you for considering adopting a cat from us! Please read our adoption policies below.

Kitten Rescue is a privately run, non-profit organization and reserves the right to refuse any adoption that is not in the best interest of the cat or kitten, based on our principles, policies, and standards as explained herein:

Please note, for the safety of both the child and the cat, young kittens are not available for adoption by households with children under five.

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 Kitten Rescue. Kitten Rescue uses the screening process to help us understand your needs and expectations. We will determine the best home for each cat or kitten based on the screening process, which includes all facets of our principles, standards and policies.  These principles, standards and policies are designed to ensure the health and safety of our cats and the compatibility of the cat with their adoptive family.

Based on our interview, we may recommend a different cat or kitten that is more suitable to your household than one you may have come to look at or pick. Because we strive to make both our adoptable pets and our adopting families as happy as possible, you may not always be able to adopt the pet you have fallen in love with because of its looks. But don’t worry! We will help you find a cat or kitten that best matches what you are looking for so that you and your new furry companion can have a happily ever after!
