    Submission of this form does not commit We Care Animal Rescue to take-in the animal. We are a small non-profit with space and resource considerations and often cannot take in an animal immediately. We will inform you as soon as possible if we are able to intake the animal; if there is a waiting list and approximate time-frame for intake. We will consider animals with certain chronic conditions and minor health issues with good prognosis. In cases of surrender for hardship due to health care costs and complex health care needs, we will review and give special consideration, including the capacity of healthy appropriate shelter space and personnel available, ability to manage the health care needs (both in direct care and cost). Due to limitations of specialized space and medical personnel, extreme health cases may not be suitable for our sanctuary. We provide medical care, but we are not a veterinary hospital or specialized medical center.

I understand this animal will not be returned to me. I also verify this animal has not bitten anyone in the last ten (10) days and the information I have provided on this questionnaire is complete and accurate to the best of my knowledge.

  • GENERAL INFORMATION FOR THE ADOPTER

    Litter box training: We cannot guarantee that the cat you adopt will be litter box trained, and even cats that are trained may have a few accidents as they adjust to their new home. When you bring your cat home, it’s best to confine the cat to its litter box room for the first day. After that, it’s best to keep the cat indoors for the first month to allow it to acclimate to its new environment.

    Scratching furniture or carpets: Scratching is a normal behavior that allows cats to stretch, condition their claws and mark their territory. To prevent destructive scratching, trim your cat’s nails regularly and provide a cat scratching post. Observe your cat to see if it prefers vertical or horizontal scratching so you can provide the most effective scratching option. Indoors or Outdoors? We Care recommends that you keep your cat indoors. The consensus among veterinarians and animal care organizations is that it’s better to keep cats indoors because they are much less likely to contract diseases, or be injured or killed by other animals and by cars. Typically, indoor cats live longer than their outdoor counterparts. Cats who are kept indoors can live 17 or more years, but outdoor cats live an average of just two to five years. We Care encourages all adopters to use their library, the internet, and any other appropriate resources to learn more about cat care and cat behavior. Thank you for your interest in cats, and for your support of We Care Animal Rescue.
