Adoption is possible for residents of Aruba, Holland and the United States.
Our adoption fees cover all the necessary veterinary care up until the point the cat is ready to travel and includes the traveling costs (flight fee, pre-travel check up (includes microchip and rabies shot) and health certificate).
For adoptions in the United States and Holland, we require half of the adoption fee in advance to offset the cost of the flight fee. The remaining portion of the fee would be paid once the cat is finally with you.
Cat: $250 (USD)
For Adoptions in Aruba
Cat: Afl 75
The adoption fees help to cover the healthcare of the cats in our care. The following is some of the items that we cover while they are under our care:
Our cats will be spayed/neutered when they are first able (depending on their overall condition) while under our care. We will make every effort that a cat is spayed/neutered before it is adopted.
We want to make sure each of our rescues go to a loving home and finds a family that fits their specific temperament well. Because of this, please fill out our application form below (or on the Our Adoptables page). It asks a number of important questions for our screening process.
If you do not own your home, we ask that you show proof that pets are allowed (copy of rental agreement or letter from your landlord). We will also contact your veterinarian for a reference. If you are in Aruba you MUST ensure that the cat remains an inside cat.
Once completed, please email your application to email@example.com
After receiving your application we will begin processing it as quickly as possible.
Please note, in case we receive multiple applications for the same animal we will first choose the best match and then which application was received first. We do our best to respond to each application and email in a timely manner. However, please know that we are a 100% volunteer organization. Please be sure to monitor your email account and phone closely to ensure we are able to contact you. Finding the perfect match for our rescues is our priority.
Your application was approved. What Happens Next?
Your cat will need to adjust to the new climate where you live. Remember, they are coming from an island where the temperature ranges from 85 to 95 degrees year round.
He/she has also been dewormed. However, it is important for you to bring your new cat to the vet as soon as possible for a thorough examination. Stools should be tested for tape worms and round worms as well as coccidia. Please follow your veterinarian’s recommendations and instructions to keep your cat healthy.
There are several types of diseases that can be triggered by the stress of traveling. Stress can cause a decrease in an animal’s immune system thus making it difficult for them to handle common infections or diseases. Animals may not show clinical signs of certain viral infections or tick borne disease until several days or weeks after adoption and may even be triggered with any type of stress.
Clinical signs for both FIV and Feline Leukemia can range from oral infections, GI disease, ocular disease and inability to clear other infections. If you suspect your cat is showing signs of infection it is important to have an examination by a veterinarian so they can appropriately treat your pet.
