Adoption Policies

Stay-A-While wants only the best life possible for our cats and kittens. To ensure that they get responsible loving homes, new guardians are required to agree to the following policies. A legal contract is signed upon adoption agreeing to these policies. Stay-A-While has the right to refuse any adoption based on the information provided during the pre-adoption interview.

  • Cats and kittens must be kept indoors 100% of the time.
  • Families with children 5 years of age or younger can only adopt cats 6 months of age or older.
  • Cats and kittens must not be given as a gift. The person who will have them under his/her care must be present for the adoption.
  • Only cats one year of age and younger can be front-paw declawed. No cats or kittens are to be four-paw declawed. Cats must meet safe criteria for being front-paw declawed. This is left up to Stay-A-While's discretion. Cats and kittens must not be declawed during the first 30 days following adoption.
  • Kittens must be spayed/neutered as soon as they are five to six (5 - 6) months old.
  • Cats and kittens must be provided with the proper and humane care, food, water, shelter and all other necessities.
  • Cats and kittens must be provided with the veterinary care and necessary vaccinations, both on a regular basis and when the cat or kitten becomes ill.
  • Cats and kittens are never to be used for experimentation or research.
  • Cats and kittens are never to be used as a mouser or barn animal.
