PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE SIGNING FEES:
There is $125.00 non-refundable adoption donation to be paid by cash or check. This donation goes towards off-setting the cost of the spay/neuter surgery, vaccination, micro-chipping, and boarding costs. All donations above this amount are very welcome, and greatly appreciated, as our costs per pet are greater than the adoption fee. In addition, we rely on donations to be able to save the next pet in need. HOME VISITS: OPIN may choose to perform both pre-adoption and post-adoption home visits.
USE OF CAT:
You agree that the cat will be adopted as a house pet and companion only. OPIN reserves the right to reclaim the cat if it feels the dog is not being fed, housed or cared for to its satisfaction. If you are unable to care for this cat, he/she must be returned to OPIN. COPY OF DRIVER’S LICENSE (or other form of official ID) IS REQUIRED This application is designed to help us determine if the adoption is in the cat’s best interest, and to assist you in finding a pet compatible with your lifestyle. An unwise adoption can result in an unpleasant experience for adoptive families and may ruin the pet for further adoptions. We hope you will agree that the pet’s welfare must be our foremost concern. I understand the above questions and I authorize investigation of all statements contained in this application. I understand that misrepresentation or omission of facts is cause for denial of adoption. By signing this application, I am stating that the above mentioned is true.
