Along with this application process, we’ll have a lengthy discussion about you and your expectations. So please be prepared to spend at least an hour with us discussing every aspect of your life: from your living environment, to the people in and around your home, to the people (and possible other pets) that will visit your home. This may sound a bit intrusive, but we need to make sure that this adoption is in the best interest of you, your family, and our special needs cats.

If you desire to adopt a cat that’s physically disabled, and you reside locally, we may ask do a home inspection. This isn’t a judgment about your living conditions – it’s about making sure that the cat is safe from potential harm that you may not have thought of. For example, a cat suffering from moderate-to-sever CH should not be placed in a home with lots of stairs.

The bottom line is: We want this adoption to be the first and last our special cats will ever have.

Thank you for wanting to adopt a SNAP Cat. And thank you for understanding our goal of making sure every adoption is a perfect match.

Darryl Roberts, Executive Director
