HOW MUCH DOES ADOPTING COST?
All Kirkland Foundation four-legged guests go out the door healthy, fixed, vaccinated and micro-chipped. Our average cost per cat is about $250-300 per cat with fixing, vaccines, microchip, medical, etc. Our adoption fees vary by retail location and range from $100 to $400 depending on the cat. If you’re looking for a more budget friendly family member, consider adopting older cats or one’s with survivable medical issues. Email us and we’ll provide a list of candidates.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ADOPTING AND FOSTERING?
Fostering means taking an animal or animals for a brief period of time into your home to feed and socialize them while we’re looking for an adoption opportunity. When you adopt, you’re making the relationship permanent. When you foster, fall in love and refuse to let us adopt them out, it’s called foster failing. We all do it.
WILL I NEED ADDITIONAL VETERINARIAN SERVICES?
At some point, you’ll need to take your best friend into the vet. At a minimum, you’ll want to maintain his or her vaccines but there are times when (like humans) illness or an emergency require medical attention. We highly recommend building a relationship with a local vet and identifying a local 24-hour pet hospital in the off chance you need medical help outside of normal business hours.
HOW CAN I ADOPT ONE OF YOUR CRITTERS?
We have adoption relationships with several PetSmart locations and routinely hold off-site adoption events. Of course, if you have a love at first sight thing with one of our guests, contact us and we’ll see if we can hook you up!
