What are the requirements to adopt?
There are no situational requirements other than that your current pet/pets need to be up-to date on their vaccinations, as well as spay/neutered
. Within 14 days of adoption, the adopter is required to establish a relationship and have an examination performed with a Veterinarian to maintain the health of their newly adopted pet. This demonstrates responsible pet ownership.
- All pets in the current home must be up to date on vaccinations and spay/neutered
Do you require home visits?
- New adopters must submit proof of visit with a veterinarian within 14 days of adoption
No, potential adopters are screened by veterinary references and the requirement of a Veterinary visit within 14 days. If you do not submit proof of a veterinary health visit within 14 days of adoption, your ownership of the animal is forfeited back to Wolf Trap Animal Rescue.
How can I see pictures of the kittens available?
You can view them on our website, as well as our Instagram and Facebook. Be sure to check the website on Wednesday evening prior to the Saturday event to ensure availability of the kitten you are interested in, as current fosters have until Wednesday at 12pm to let us know of their intent to adopt. If a foster has decided to adopt their kitten, we will remove the pet from the website.
Can I bring my current pet with me to see if they get along?
You can, however it is strongly discouraged. An adoption event can be very stressful for both your pet as well as the kitten. This situation is not ideal, nor does it demonstrate accurate behavior responses that otherwise one might see in a calm setting.
How much is the adoption fee?
The current adoption fee for dogs/puppies is $425 cash, or $435 credit. The adoption fee for cats/kittens is $175 cash, $185 credit. This fee covers the cost of spay/neuter, vaccinations, microchip, deworming, flea/tick control, transport, food, and foster supplies. **As of 03/11/2017, WTAR will require a mandatory $25 insurance fee at the time of adoption. WTAR has partnered with an insurance company to provide 30-days of accidental/incidental health insurance for your new pet; effective starting midnight the day of adoption.
