PLEASE NOTE: If you adopted from FURR and you cannot keep your cat, you are required by contract to return the cat to us if you cannot keep it!
No cat adopted from us will ever be turned away and we will make sure that they are placed into loving homes. Please fill out the form Returning a FURR cat if your cat is from FURR.
If your cat was NOT adopted from FURR…..
Hopefully you are never in a position to rehome your cat. FURR believes in forever homes but we understand that sometimes the situation is not workable or sometimes you can't keep the stray that wandered into your yard.
If you are having a behavioral problem, please consider behavior modification. FURR volunteers are more than happy to help you through what you need to do to make your cat a happy member of your household. Sometimes it just takes understanding cat psychology. We understand cats and why they sometimes misbehave. Usually the problem is quite fixable. Often times if cats are not Spayed and Neutered you will see issues like spraying, peeing, aggression, escaping outside. We can help you with Spay and Neuter to see if that resolves the issues
If you do decide to give up your cat please DO NOT advertise your cat as "free to good home". You might think that you've given your animal a good home but the chance is high that they have just moved into another unstable position. People who acquire animals for free are more likely to acquire animals on impulse. Also, "bunchers" will often pose as nice families to take your free animal and resell it to a Class B dealer who supplies laboratories. Free kittens often meet a worse fate because the will be "adopted" as free snake food or used to train fighting dogs. If you do rehome your cat yourself, please make sure you do a vet check to ensure that the new owners have taken care of their animals in the past and please ask for an adoption fee. You can always donate your adoption fee to a local shelter!
FURR is usually very full. A majority of our cats are in foster homes, some reside in our habits with partner pet stores. We do not have a shelter to house cats, but we try to help as many cats in need so please be patient with us.
If we do agree to take the cat on, the ownership of the cat transfers fully to FURR and the cat will be loved and cared for in a no-kill environment with the promise that the cat will never be turned away should it need to be returned to FURR for the remainder of its lifetime.
