This form is also known as "The Waiting List".

After your form is submitted it is kept on file, and we will only contact you if we can take your kitten or cat. This form is not a promise to take your cat.
If your contact information changes or if you are changing the amount that you are willing to contribute for the cats care after you submit the form, please contact us.

If we do contact you that your kitten or cat has been accepted into our organization, you have 24 hours to respond or your application will be removed from the system. We cannot hold space because it's not fair to other cats on the list.

It is very important that you attach photos to this form.

We are not a sanctuary, so we can only take healthy, outgoing kittens and cats that can be placed into indoor homes.

Our average cost per animal that we take in is $411, so that means that we need donations to offset the costs.

Donation for cat's care
RescueCats takes in cats and kittens from the public on a limited basis. Because we are a small, private shelter we can only take in new cats and kittens as we adopt others out. The average cost per kitten or cat is nearly $225.00. We will test, vaccinate, spay or neuter, microchip, and treat for worms, fleas, and more. This will ensure that the cat or kittens will not reproduce, adding to the pet overpopulation problem, and will be as healthy as possible before going home. *Senior Cats require more care, so we appreciate receiving a higher donation for their care. What donation are you prepared to make to help with the cost of care for this cat?
