Adopting A Friend


Call, email, or come visit to find out about adopting one of our beautiful kitties. Some of the cats on our Petfinder list are not living at Riverside.  If this is the case, it will be clearly stated on the cat's bio.  Please be sure to contact the person listed in the bio, as that person will have the most up to date information about that cat.  

We require all potential adopters to fill out an application, provide two references, and a vet reference (if applicable).  We have a non-refundable adoption fee of $175.  The adoption fee funds our adoptions' medical care, medical procedures, medications and vaccines.  The adoption fee also includes HomeAgain microchip implantation and registration.

All our adoptions will be up to date on vaccines for their age.  There may be more vaccines necessary if adopted before the final booster is given.  This will be the responsibility of the new owner.  Ideally all our cats and kittens will be altered prior to adoption but in some cases they may be too young.  If you adopt an unaltered feline you will be responsible for arranging this procedure as soon as it is possible.  On the day of adoption, new owners sign a contract pledging that they will have their new cat altered.


Who We Are

We are a holistic veterinary clinic and part of Vetsnyc (www.vetsnyc.com).  We have been rescuing cats (as well as the occasional dog) since opening in 1994.  Helping animals in need is an essential and gratifying part of our job.  Adopters are always impressed to meet our cats because, as a rule, they are well cared for, socialized, and not exposed to common shelter viruses.
