The adoption fee for unaltered kittens is $50 plus a $50 spay/neuter deposit on kittens too young to be spayed/neutered prior to adoption. For cats/ kittens that have been spayed/ neutered prior to adoption the adoption fee is $75.
Adoption of cats over 10 yrs old will be free of charge.
Once you have finished the application, an alert will be sent to an Adoption Coordinator for review (Please allow 24 to 48 hours for a response). In order to prevent delays in processing your application, each question must be answered as completely as possible.
While completing the application does not obligate you to adopt, or to adopt a particular pet, please do not submit an app unless you are are ready to adopt and all family members are in agreement.
Our application is designed to serve 3 functions:
1. Adoption – you are ready to adopt if approved, no questions or concerns with other pets or your health. Our adoption fee is required at the time of adoption, as well as an additional spay/neuter deposit in the amount of the adoption fee, for all pets that have not been spayed or neutered. This will apply to most of our young puppies, and under some extenuating circumstances to older pets.
NOTE: We do not accept credit card payments. We will accept cash or personal checks with proper identification. You may also make payment through PAYPAL. When using PAYPAL, please add an additional $5.00 to the adoption fee to cover the costs of this service.
2. Foster to Adopt – we recommend this option particularly to those adopters with health concerns, children and/or other pets. This will allow you to evaluate their reaction to you and your family during a one (1) week trial basis. We do require a minimum commitment of one week as it is difficult to make foster arrangements during the week. A check deposit in the amount of the adoption fee is required. This check will be held with your application until you return the following Saturday. If you decide to adopt, please arrive to complete the application process by 2:00 PM the following Saturday. Should you decide not to adopt, please advise us ASAP and make arrangements to be at Petco by 10:45 AM so that other prospective adopters have the opportunity to meet it. We prefer you "foster-to-adopt" to ensure the perfect match. Our goal is to provide permanent homes for our animals and only the perfect match will ensure this.
3. Foster Only - You are willing to provide a temporary home for one or more of our pets. While we prefer fosters who can provide a stable environment for each pet until it is adopted into it's forever home, we rely on fosters who will commit to one week at a time and who will bring their foster pet to us at the Bellevue Petco each Sat. and pick it up if not adopted by 3:15PM. It is through your willingness to provide this care that we are able to continue our mission. We greatly appreciate each and every one of you. Please see our Fostering Pets page for additional information.
