Frequently Asked Questions
|What is your adoption process?||
1. Your application will be processed.
2. Meet & Greet: Once your application is processed and approved, you can meet our cats by scheduling a time with his/her foster parents. We encourage you to ask questions as the foster parents have gotten to know all the likes, dislikes, quirks and endearing traits of their foster cat/ktten. This is the greatest benefit of working with our rescue.
3. Finalizing the adoption: Once you find the right new addition to your family, the final step is to complete the adoption agreement and submit payment. Please do not rush your decision, you are making a lifetime commitment; but we also want to explain that cats remain "available for adoption" until both the adoption agreement and payment are received; and there are times when several families are interested in the same cat, so please keep in touch with your adoption counselor. If you have any problems getting in touch with your adoption counselor, please send a message directly to email@example.com and we will assist you without delay.
|How can I meet your cats?||
We do not have a shelter; all of our cats are fostered in the homes of volunteers. Once you are an approved adopter, our foster parents are happy to schedule a time for you to meet their foster cats.
|What is the adoption fee?||
|Why was my application denied?||
It is our policy not to discuss individual applications; however, please understand that what differentiates us from a humane society is that our cats are fostered in our homes. We get to know them---their quirks as well as their endearing traits. Cats are individual creatures, and just as people search for a compatible mate, cats need a compatible family. For example, some cats need quiet homes while others seek activity; some may play a little rough and may not be good with children; while others are very gentle. The benefit of adopting through MCRA is that we take great care to find the right home for our cats, and the right cat for your family.
|What do I do if I adopt a cat that does not work out?||
This is a rare occurence, however we understand it may happen. Our relationship with you doesn't end with the adoption. If for any reason you cannot keep your cat, we will take them back at anytime.
