How did you hear about Advocates 4 Animals?:
Please note that adopting a pet is a commitment for the duration of the pets life. Please be sure you and each of your family members are fully committed to the feline adoption. Like people, pets are not perfect - they require love, devotion, commitment, and above all patience. There may be times when issues may arise such as clawing on furniture, urinating outside of the litterbox ( this occurs usually when there is a health problem such as a urinary infection), allergies, new additions to the family, moving to a new location or another issue that may be frustrating as a pet owner. In adopting a pet, we accept the good with the bad and commit to working with the feline through the bad. Adjusting to multiple new environments is difficult and stressful on the feline, therefore we make every attempt to find a forever home for our adoptable pets. When we rescue a cat into our organization, we make a 100% committment to them - that we will be sure they are adopted into a home that is committed to them for the duration of their natural lifespan. Do you agree to commit to the adopted pet - and keep him/her in a loving proper home environment for the duration of their natural lifespan?
Please note we take the above question very seriously - as in the past we have had a few adopters return their pet for reasons such as "too expensive for care) or "i'm moving and can't take them with me". The rescue/adoptable cats have been though a very tough start in life - and switching environments more than necessary is very difficult on the adopted pet. Please be CERTAIN that you are willing to commit to keeping your adopted pet for the duration of their natural lifespan. If you are uncertain, we urge you not to adopt - as adopting is a very important and serious decision.
