Our Adoption Process....

We love our furry friends and Cat Rangers takes great care in finding the best match for you and for our kitties.  You will be asked to first complete a comprehensive online adoption application form, and then our volunteers will review closely and check your vet references if you have any existing animals.   Our adoption counselors will talk with you and make sure you fully understand the commitment of adoption and are prepared for a new member of the household.  Vet references and personal (non-family) references will also be checked.  Our team will also conduct a virtual or in person visit to help make sure that you are all set up for a new pet and there are no unusual risks in your environment.  Finally, we frequently make personal deliveries of our kitties, especially those who have been homed at our Cat Rangers Center for some time, to make sure that the kitty seems comfortable and not too nervous about the changes.   We know all of our cat lover friends will appreciate the extra care we take to make sure that pet lovers and our kitties find that their match is made in heaven!    We do not approve adoptions for cats who will be outdoors kitties or who may be declawed.  Our core principles are directed toward providing kitties the longest and safest lives and that means an indoor home and we do not condone declawing so we choose not to be approve adoption to an applicant who wants to declaw a cat.

Because we ensure that all adopted unaltered kittens come back for their spay and neutering (which is a required by Georgia Department of Agriculture regulations), we do not adopt kittens to those who live more than two hours away or are out of state.   In certain circumstances we will consider long distance adoptions for juvenile or adult already spay/neutered cats if the adopter has a very compelling application and credentials, but virtual home visits, reference checks and approved applications are still required.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you would like to reference a copy of your application and keep track of cats you are interested in, please sign up on the MY RESCUE page BEFORE you complete the adoption application.  There are some handy tools on this page, but you have to sign up before completing any forms.

To adopt a pet from CatRangers, please complete our online adoption application. Ideally you will have identified one or more kitties on our website that you are interested in.   We are working very hard to keep this website information fresh and up to date.   Your application will be reviewed and a phone interview will be scheduled. If you decide to adopt, your new companion will either be delivered to your home by a CatRanger or a virtual or in person home visit will be completed prior to adoption. CatRangers does adopt to people who live out of state but home visits and completed approved applications are still required.

CRITICAL - PLEASE REVIEW ADOPTION CONTRACT BEFORE FILING APPLICATION. You will also need to review our adoption contract.  This contract will need to be signed before completing an adoption.

Please note that cats cannot be officially reserved until an adoption application is approved and paid, so we may accept multiple applications for a single cat and we work to match our kitties with their best possible forever home.  

Our process goes the extra mile and takes some extra time because we take great care in making proper matches for our kitties and because we are so limited in available volunteers (we are always seeking volunteers... please apply online).  We truly appreciate your patience and support of our loving process.

Please email us at adoptions@catrangers.org with process questions or to check on a specific cat or status of application.  Our MyRescue page let's you set up a login on our website and save kitties you are interested in and it stores your application forms there.    We invite you to consider a monthly sponsoring  for one of our kitties while you are looking around!
