The Ann Arbor Cat Clinic, in addition to being a full service feline specific veterinary hospital, runs a non-profit cat adoption program. We primarily focus on stray cats and kittens; however we occasionally take in owner surrenders or victims of abuse or neglect. Our program is completely funded by donations and operates on volunteered time. We generally place around 100-125 felines into loving, permanent homes each year.
Our cats and kittens have all been FELV/FIV/HW tested and have received age appropriate vaccinations. They receive testing for internal parasites, and any necessary de-worming. Our kitties are also microchipped as part of their adoption. All cats and kittens over 4 months of age are sterilized prior to going home, and kittens younger than 4 months will be sterilized as part of adoption once they reach 16 weeks of age. Since most of our cats do come to us as strays, they often require treatment for other issues as well, which is done at the clinic or in foster homes prior to the cats being placed up for adoption. Our cats also come with a certificate for a free exam with one of our veterinarians within 10 days of adoption in case the new owners have any questions or concerns or just need some guidance.
The Ann Arbor Cat Clinic Adoption program is not for profit and exists solely from donations. The adoption program is run separately from the clinic itself. Our veterinarians and staff generously donate their time to work on the adoptable cats. All medications, food, and supplies are purchased with donated funds. We hold one major fundraising event each year which is a very popular bake sale during the winter holiday season. We also charge a small adoption fee to help offset the costs involved with caring for the cats. The adoption fee for kittens is $125 and the fee for adult cats is $80.
