Know someone who is looking for a feline friend to share their life with? All the Best Pet Care in Edmonds is hosting an Adoptathon this Sunday. Kittens and cats from non-profit rescues are looking for permanent homes. They’ve passed all their health checks and are current on their vaccinations. One hundred percent of adoption fees go to the fosters/rescue group to support their rescue work.
For more information, drop by the store at 9803 Edmonds Way from noon-4 p.m. or call for more information: 425-697-3909
Adoptathon questions and answers
Q. What is the adoption fee for a cat?
The adoption fee is a $125 donation per kitten (under 1 year); $200 for a pair of kittens; $100 for an adult cat; $150 for a pair of adult cats. The fee goes entirely to Feral Cat Assistance and Trapping (or other rescue organization); none of it goes to All The Best Pet Care.
Q. What does the adoption fee cover?
Each cat is spayed or neutered, vaccinated, tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia (FeLV), de-wormed, and flea treated. The average cost of these services if done on your own would be between $150 and $300.
Q. What is the adoption procedure?
If you are interested in adopting one of our cats, please let an associate know which cat you are interested in. A one-day wait is mandatory before the completion of adoption; cats are a 20-plus-year commitment and we ask that you think overnight on such an important decision. In the meantime, we will be happy to place that cat “on hold” for you pending your interview.
At your interview, we will have you fill out an adoption questionnaire about your family, home, and current pets. Our adoption coordinator will review and discuss it with you. We request that all family members meet the cat prior to adoption, if at all possible, and we strongly recommend that any dogs in the household to interact with the cat before adoption. In certain instances, we will submit applications to Feral Care for further review if deemed necessary by the adoption coordinator.
