Adopt

Welcome to the CAPS ADOPT pages.

  Thank you for your interest in our beautiful foster cats and kittens.  Please read all of the following information before submitting an application to adopt from CAPS.

All CAPS foster animals are given full health checks, tested for feline leukemia and feline aids (combo tested), vaccinated, neutered/spayed, fecal tested, de-wormed and treated for fleas and ear mites and micro-chipped.  All diagnosed medical issues are addressed and foster animals are healthy before being listed as adoptable. Foster kittens and cats live their lives  in cage-free,  loving, family settings, spoiled by their caregivers and foster parents.   CAPS foster animals are truly loved.

CAPS cats are intended as INDOOR CATS only.   CAPS DOES NOT ADOPT CATS AS BARN CATS OR MOUSERS.

BEFORE YOU APPLY TO ADOPT FROM CAPS, PLEASE ensure the following:

* that all companion animals in your care (or household) are up to date on their annual vaccines, spay/neutered and have been to your vet in the past 12 months for an annual health check.

* that all your present cats have been tested and found NEGATIVE for Feline Leukemia and HIV (Feline Aids). This is called a COMBO test.

* If you are presently a pet owner or have had a pet in the past 5 years, please make sure that you have personally contacted your veterinarian(s) to give your permission for them to speak with a CAPS volunteer when called for a reference.

*****************

 ALL REFERENCES WILL BE CONTACTED.

Please review your application carefully before you submit it for consideration.

If information on the application is found to be untrue, your application will be immediately declined.

Visitation at the foster homes can be scheduled only after an application is approved.

CAPS’ Better with a Buddy program allows for the adoption of a second cat (sibling or best friend adopted at the same time) for no  additional minimum adoption donation. All adoption donations to CAPS are greatly appreciated.

All of the cats and kittens taken into care by CAPS have been found outside, lost, strayed, abandoned, often injured and in very poor health. It is CAPS’ sincere hope that our beautiful and cherished foster cats being adopted to their forever homes, will NEVER again find themselves in this situation.

“Outside” cats have an average life span of 2 years. “In house” cats have a life span of 18 years. In many Nova Scotia municipalities, allowing family cats to roam at large contravenes local bylaws and may result in fines or impounding of your companion animal or far worse.

Adopters are strongly urged to always keep cats safely inside. Screened in verandas and safe enclosed play areas, monitored playtime on lead, outings in a kitty stroller are ways to allow your friend to enjoy fresh air without the many dangers of being on their own in a very inhospitable world. We would be pleased to discuss more safe options for your new pet.

CAPS requests that adopters agree in writing on the adopters agreement that all cats adopted from our care be kept safely indoors for a period of at least one full year from their adoption date. We fervently hope that as their parents/caregivers will agree to always keep them safely indoors. Your new little friend will thank you for many years to come!

Thank you for your interest in the foster animals of the Companion Animal Protection Society of Annapolis County.

At adoption time, CAPS requests a donation to be made to assist in the care of those animals still in our care and those coming into care over the next weeks and months. Adopters are welcome to be as generous as they wish at adoption time. Minimum  adoption donation amounts are outlined below:

Kittens  6 months of age and under: $100

Cats 7 months of age and over : $80

Dogs: $125

 

 

The foster kitties pictured below are available for adoption.
