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

(1) When you meet a cat for which you would like to be considered, submit your application at Meows Corner. Staff will send it to 4Paws ASAP. You will receive an email from 4Paws acknowledging receipt of your application. 4Paws will accept up to two applications per cat. All applicants are required to have met a cat before applying for it.

(2) Applications take about 5 business days to process but may take longer if you rent and/or have current or former pets. Please promptly respond if 4Paws contacts you with questions or for additional information. Keep checking your spam folder and voice mailboxes to make sure you aren't missing our messages.

(3) Once the preliminary checks have been made to 4Paws' satisfaction, a 4Paws volunteer will contact you to schedule a phone interview. The interview should take about a half hour.

(4) If approved you will be given the option of receiving instructions to digitally sign the contract and pay the adoption fee by text or email. Once you complete that step, you will be given a digital receipt. 4Paws will let Meows Corner know you have paid the adoption fee. Meows Corner management will then contact you to arrange a time for you to pick your cat/s up. You will need to bring a cat carrier for each cat you are taking home.
