All of our rescued cats and kittens are lap-raised in a nurturing environment and adopted into compatible life-long homes.
We are committed to ensuring that our cats and kittens are placed into loving homes where they will be well-cared for. So if you like one or more of our cats, you will complete an adoption application to help match you and your home environment to the kitty that’s most compatible.
THE ADOPTION PROCESS
Tell us about the kind of cat you’re looking for by contacting us at GuardianAngelsCatRescue@gmail.com
Throughout the process, you’ll have access to an adoption counselor who can answer any questions you might have.
After we have had an initial conversation with you, we will send you an application. On the application, we’ll ask you questions like whether you’ve had a cat before; if you have other pets; how many members are in your family; the name and phone number of your veterinarian (if you have one).
YOUR ADOPTABLE GACR CAT
Each and every Guardian Angels cat and kitten receives the following before adoption:
- Exam by a local veterinarian
- “Lap-raised” care in a foster home
- Healthy diet
- Spayed or neutered
- Vaccination for common cat diseases, including Rabies
- Treatment for intestinal parasites
- Tested for FeLV (some cats are also tested for FIV)
WHY OUR ADOPTION FEE WILL SAVE YOU MONEY
Guardian Angels requires a tax-deductible donation of $150 to reimburse veterinary costs incurred. Our adoption fees cover only the costs of veterinary care. We make no profit. Every penny we receive from donation fees goes to the care of our rescued cats. Our financials are publicly available for review.
We have heard from some potential adopters that they think it’s less expensive to get a “free” cat or kitten from a friend or to rescue one themselves. But, as you can see by the chart below, the total non tax deductible veterinary cost before spay/neuter for a “free” cat is actually $323-$560 (before spay/neuter costs of $100-$400).
In spite of this higher cost, you have no guarantee that your new pet has been lap-raised to be the companion you hoped for. Nor do you have the option of returning the cat up to 2 weeks later.
We encourage potential adopters to compare the costs and care of both scenarios.
|1st Vet visit||$50-$75|
|1st FVRCP Vaccine||$15-30|
|2nd Vet visit||$45-75|
|2nd FVRCP vaccine||$15-30|
|2nd mite treatment||$15-25|
Total Vet Costs: $323-560
