Adoption Process Cats
Adopting A Friend
All information needed for adopting one of our kittens. Please read all items carefully. If you are interested in adopting any of our kittens, please fill out the form at the bottom of every page. Thank you!
Designer Dog Rescue’s goal is to place homeless kittens into loving homes and families. We take special care to match the right home with the right kitten, ensuring a lifetime of love for both the pet and the adopter. To ensure the best matches are made, we have a process that has been proven effective in determining the best homes for our animals. Our adoption process may seem time consuming or unnecessarily complicated, but please understand that we have our kittens’ best interests at heart. We strive to find the best homes possible for our kittens, as well as find the right kitten for you and your lifestyle.
Step 1 – Fill out a Adoption Application
The first step is to have you fill out a adoption application. This application will tell us about you and your lifestyle, training beliefs and background with animals.
Step 2 – Application Preliminary Review
Our application review volunteers will initially screen your application to determine if all necessary information was provided. If not you will be contacted to either fill out another application or provide additional information. Applications without references listed will not be processed.
Step 3 – Landlord Approval Verified
If it is determined that you rent, your landlord will be contacted to make sure you have approval to have a pet in your home. We also ask about any limitations.
If your landlord does not allow for a pet in your home, your application will be denied at this point in the process.
Step 4 – Veterinary References Contacted
Our volunteers will contact the veterinary reference(s) you provided to determine if all your current pets are spayed/neutered and up to date on vaccinations. If you don’t have any current pets, we will ask about the veterinary care that your previous pets received. If you have never owned a pet, this step is skipped.
Step 5 – Meet and Greet
We do not Adopt out of Southern California!
Meet and Greet: Our organization does not have a shelter where the dogs can be visited. Our kittens are in foster homes. We do NOT arrange meetings between interested individuals and our fosters until an applicant has been approved via this adoption process.
kittens will be available for meet and greets at our weekly adoption events.
Just because you are determined to be an approved adopter, you are NOT guaranteed a particular kitten. For some kittens we receive many applications so we may allow multiple applicants to have a meeting with the kittens before we choose the home that we feel will be the best fit for the cat.
Step 6 – Adoption Official
If the interview and Meet and greet goes well, the adoption paperwork will be signed and the adoption will be considered official. All adoption fees are refundable for 1 week after adoption, but our goal is to match the right cat with the right family the first time. We understand that is not always the case, but we try our best! At any time you can no longer keep the kitten you adopted, we will always gladly accept the kitten back.
