WHO WE ARE

Our mission: SCOOP is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to reducing suffering and overpopulation among cats through non-lethal methods. We are completely staffed by volunteers. All proceeds benefit the medical care of rescued cats and a spay/neuter community program called Prevent A Litter (PAL).

While we do not provide direct trap-neuter-return (TNR) services, we provide education and consultation to those interested in helping stray and feral cats. PLEASE - see the 2 links below [ Alley Cat Allies and Neighborhood Cats ] for more information on trap, neuter, and return of stray and feral cats......to stop the needless breeding and euthanasia of unwanted pets. There are many documents that can be printed for reference.


ADOPTING A FRIEND

Click here for a list of adorable kittens and cats waiting to meet you.

If you're interested in adopting one of our cats, our process involves the following: You'll be asked to complete an application either before or after you visit the cat. The adult who will be responsible for the kitten/cat will be required to complete SCOOP's application. We do no same day adoptions and the completion of an application, or a visit, does not guarantee adoption. Our goal is to make the best match possible as we take into account the cat's needs and the prospective adopter's situation. Adopted cats are taken to their new homes by a SCOOP representative. Our adoption fee is $70.00 for one and $110.00 for two. Most, if not all, of the fee is returned to the adopter in cat supplies. There will be telephone and/or email communication within the first weeks with a SCOOP representative to make sure things are proceeding smoothly, to answer questions, and to address any concerns. A home visit will occur within the first month. Those at SCOOP welcome your calls or emails throughout the cat's life and will be happy to help you resolve any issues that may arise.

Each kitten or cat is tested for FIV (feline AIDS) and leukemia (FeLV); vaccinated (distemper); spayed or neutered; microchipped; treated for fleas, worms, and ear mites; receives a complete medical examination; and receives any other necessary medical care.
Each kitten or cat will go home with a cardboard carrier, scratching box, nail clippers, toys, litter scoop, blanket, medical information, and informational articles concerning a wide variety of feline issues.

Adopting a pet is a huge commitment and responsibility. A cat will be completely dependent on you and can live more than 20 years. You'll need to have enough money in your budget to provide litter, toys, food, and yearly vet care. In addition, medical emergencies do happen, especially with high energy kittens, and you'll need to have the finances to pay an emergency fee that could run $500.00 or more.




OUR ADOPTION POLICIES:

1) Cat is kept indoors only. Outdoor cats face many dangers (cars, larger animals, cruel people, poisons, etc.)

2) No declawing. DeClawing Education that your vet office may not tell you (Declawing a kitten/cat requires amputation above the first joint of each digit. Complications such as excessive bleeding and infections can result. Itís possible that the cat will have chronic pain and/or sensitivity resulting in behavioral problems such as biting and litter box avoidance. Kittens/cats whose claws are trimmed regularly and are provided appropriate scratching posts will use those instead of your furniture. Those at SCOOP are always glad to talk with potential adopters about alternative ways to deal with catsí natural scratching behaviors.)

3) Cat is loved and cared for the rest of his/her natural life.

4) Our goal is to find the cat a lifetime home. However, unforeseen situations do arise. Therefore, if for any reason at all during the catís life, the cat is no longer wanted, or cannot be cared for, he/she is returned to SCOOP.

5) Adopters need to have stable living conditions and be independent from parents for at least two years. Adopters need to be willing to take the cat anywhere they move in the future. Cats are not adopted to college students living on campus.

6) Due to the difficulty of integrating a new pet into a household with young children, we do not adopt to homes with children under age five. (Bringing a new baby into a house with existing pets is typically an easy task.)
