*We do not adopt kittens singly without another young and/or playful dog or cat at home.
The above totals do not include food, litter, post-operative drugs, and other routine expenses. All adoption fees go directly towards providing medical care, food, litter and shelter for our rescued cats. A s shown above, the adoption fees often do not even cover the costs of the care we provide each cat. Once the paperwork has been completed and the adoption fee is paid, you will be able to take your new companion home. You need to provide a carrier for transport. We may contact you after the adoption to follow up and ensure your cat is settling in well.
FCRT does not guarantee the health of any animals offered for adoption. Any time you adopt an animal, you should take it to a licensed veterinarian to have it checked within 10 days of adoption. Your animal is, to the best of our knowledge, healthy, but will need to be started immediately on a program of preventative veterinary care.
Please be aware that the animals available for adoption are rescue animals and, as such, have often been exposed to a variety of infectious organisms. Like human illnesses, these infections can have an incubation period of up to several weeks. If the animal you adopt shows signs of illness at any point, please promptly take the animal to the vet for treatment.
The following statement is required by Virginia law: STERILIZATION OF ANY ADOPTED ANIMAL IS REQUIRED BY TITLE 3.2, CHAPTER 65 OF THE CODE OF VIRGINIA. THE ADOPTER [YOU] AGREES TO ASSUME FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR COMPLIANCE WITH THE PROVISIONS OF 3.2-6574 through 3.2-6578, WHICH PERTAIN TO THE TIMELY STERILIZATION OF THE ADOPTED PET. A PERSON [YOU] WHO VIOLATES THIS ARTICLE IS SUBJECT TO CIVIL PENALTY. THE NEW OWNER [YOU] MAY BE COMPELLED TO COMPLY WITH THE PROVISIONS OF THIS ARTICLE.
