EVENT OF THE WEEK: Habitat for Cats Adoption Day

Saturday, January 19ginger

Habitat for Cats is holding an adoption day  on  January 19, from 12-3 p.m. at  Habitat for Cats Adoption Center and Post Care Facility at 1322 Ashley Blvd. New Bedford MA.

All cats have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, tested for Feline Leukemia, defleaed, and dewormed. The cost to adopt is $100 for adult cats and $120 for kittens five months and younger. Please bring adequate equipment (i.e., a cat carrier) to take your new friend home. An adoption application and contract are required.

The adoption fee will assist in paying for the cost of medical and foster care (generally valued over $200).

Adoption days are held every month because HFC looks forward to finding forever homes for all of their special kitties! Adoptions can also be scheduled by appointment. Call 508-961-CATS (2287) for more information.

Habitat for Cats operates in the Westport and New Bedford areas. For more information, visit http://www.habitatforcats.org.

Adoption Information

Habitat for Cats cats and kittens have received the following medical treatment prior to adoption:

A general veterinary examination is performed. Habitat’s cats are healthy to the best of our knowledge. They are rescued cats, often with unknown histories, but any known pre-existing illness/condition will be discussed. We recommend that adopter establish a relationship with their own vet and the new pet.

All cats and kittens (as young as 8 weeks) are spayed/neutered prior to adoption. Habitat uses veterinarians experienced in performing pediatric spay/neuter. Refer to the Resources link for more information on this subject.

Cats and kittens have received de-worming and flea protection medications (as required).

Cats/kittens have received, at least, one distemper (FVRCP) vaccination. Kittens require a booster distemper vaccination 3-4 weeks after the date of their first vaccine. Consult your veterinarian for vaccine protocol & schedule.

Cats, age permitting, have received a rabies vaccination. Any cat with the potential of getting outdoors, should be vaccinated for rabies.

Cats and kittens are tested for feline leukemia (FeLV) and occasionally tested for feline AIDS (FIV) (as appropriate for their age).
