Sometimes at Pierce Veterinary Clinic we have kittens that we have been surrendered to the clinic for a variety of reasons. Some have a medical problem and some have been found abandoned. When this happens we will treat them and place them up for adoption. For every kitten, we start the vaccine series, deworm them and test them for feline leukemia/fiv and heartworm. They are spayed or neutered before going to a new home and we also give an initial flea and tick preventative. If there are other medical problems, they are placed on medication to treat the condition. It is the new owner’s responsibility to continue with the vaccine boosters recommended, and continue to give medications as directed.
If you are interested in adopting a kitten from the Pierce Veterinary Clinic we do have some requirements to ensure they are going to their forever home. These are the requirements that must be met:
1.) Must remain an indoor only cat.
2.) All pets in the household must be current on vaccines. If this was done at another clinic we will need proof of vaccine history.
3.) If you are renting, you must have contacted your landlord to be sure you are allowed to provide a home for a pet.
4.) You must be willing and financially able to provide a home for a pet that can potentially live 15-20 years.
5.) You are responsible for the cost of future medical care and in some cases this can mean long term medications and treatment. *Some kittens are diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection that can have flare-ups over their first year of life and will require additional medical exams and medications. These costs will be your responsibility.*
6.) You must be willing to purchase a small bag of Purina Pro Plan kitten food to be fed for at least a month before transitioning to a different brand (if desired). This reduces stress and the risk of developing gastrointestinal upset while getting accustomed to new home.
7.) Be willing to pay an adoption fee of $95.
We love rescuing these babies and are so happy to be able to bring them back to good health. We want them to live a long and healthy life and grow up in a loving home. Thank you for understanding our adoption requirements and please consider adopting a homeless pet to help keep the population of unwanted animals down.
