The 4Paws Adoption Process (with hints on helping us help you adopt that special furball or two)

(1) Applicants for a Meows Corner cat are required to have met the cat before applying for it. If you want to submit an application after meeting a cat, visit the https://fourpaws.org "Adopt" page to submit an electronic application. Where it asks "Why do you want to adopt this cat?" you can describe your visit and what you liked about the cat that made you want to apply. Please note Meows Corner cats are not on the 4Paws website, they are on the Meows Corner website.

(2) Please email mcclowder@gmail.com and let us know that you just submitted an application. Please let us know your name and which cats you are interested in. We will check to make sure the application went through and confirm with an email response. 4Paws processes applications on a first-received, first served basis. We will let you know if there is an application ahead of yours.

(3) Please be aware that because applications are electronically submitted, Meows Corner staff has no way of knowing if a cat has an application. If you would like to know a cat's availability before applying please email mcclowder@gmail.com.

(4) If you have current pets please call your veterinarian(s) and give them permission to discuss your account with a 4Paws representative. Getting permission to speak with an applicant's veterinarian is the biggest avoidable delay in the application process.

(5) The application process will normally take 5-7 business days. Once the checks are completed to 4Paws' satisfaction, applicants will be contacted to schedule a 30-45 minute phone interview.

(6) If approved, applicants will be given instructions on how to pay the adoption fee electronically. Fees are $120 for an altered cat and $95 + $50 alter deposit for an unaltered kitten. Once fees are paid the applicant will be contacted by Meows Corner staff to arrange the pick up.
