Adopting from The Philly Kitty
The Philly Kitty rescues abandoned & stray animals by providing them with high-quality veterinary care, behavioral evaluations, and diligent screening of prospective adopters. Adopting a companion animal is a commitment for life and a decision that should be carefully thought out. All adoptable cats and kittens are located in foster care. Our foster home situation allows adopters to interact with the cat or kitten in a comfortable atmosphere or even at your own home. Additionally, we provide post-adoption resources and assistance if needed. The Philly Kitty works in partnership with Colmar Veterinary Hospital.
Adoption Fee $95.00*
• Our Adoption Fee includes a complete medical exam, age appropriate vaccinations including rabies, spaying or neutering, feline leukemia (FeLV) & FIV testing, microchipping, preventative flea treatment, de-worming, and any other medically appropriate treatment as needed. Common ailments such as upper respiratory infections and bacterial infections, as well as any other medical issues, are treated to prior to adoption. Plus, if you adopt a pair of kitties together, the second adoption fee is waived!
• Adopt-A-Buddy is only valid for a double adoption which occurs at the same time. Sorry, fees can not be waived for future adoptions.
