Operation CatSnip of Kentucky. Inc. Cat Adoption Application
We realize there are a lot of questions to answer. Please understand they are all for the best interests of yourself and the pet for which you are applying. Please take the time to carefully read and complete the following questions, which are designed to assist with placing our pets in the correct environment for their personality and needs. It is our intention to place animals with individuals or families who will consider them an important part of their lives. We wish for the pet and the adoptive family alike to be content with the decision, and want it to result in a permanent placement.
We do receive many applications each day, so please be patient. If someone has not contacted you in 72 hours, feel free to email us at email@example.com, calling does delay the process as the applications are sent to our Director of Adoption Applications, which is not the listed number of our rescue.

Operation CatSnip of Kentucky. Inc. Rescue makes every effort to assure that the animal you receive is healthy. We do this by having each pet examined by our vet,(at the time of altering) and having it de-wormed and vaccinated against communicable diseases (rhinotracheitis, panleukopenia and calici virus). They have also been tested for feline leukemia and FIV. Many times they have been treated for intestinal parasites (including coccidia and giardia). Occasionally, a pet may not show symptoms of an illness until after he is adopted, as most illnesses have an incubation period of 17-21 days. This is completely unavoidable and occurs not only in shelter/rescue type settings, but also with pet stores, breeders, and any environment where there are a number of animals present at any given time. We strongly recommend that your new pet be re-examined by a vet within 7 -10 days after the adoption for yours’ and the pet’s best interests. You will be responsible for all medical expenses incurred. Many vets will give a courtesy wellness check.
Please do NOT introduce your new pet to your resident pet until the new adopted pet has been seen by a veterinarian. We will not be responsible for any illness or injurties that your resident cat contracts from the adopted pet.
Operation CatSnip of Kentucky. Inc. Rescue strives for appropriate matches of cats and adoptive families based on assessment of the animals’ temperaments (to the extent that may be judged by our representatives) as well as on careful evaluation of potential adopters and the living conditions they will be able to offer a cat. We will not be responsible for the cat biting, scratching or any aggressive attacks on said adopter(s), resident pet(s), family members(s), visitors, roomate(s), any person(s) including but not limited to destructuion of personal property.
