'Purr-suasions' to Adopt an Adult Cat

Everyone loves a kitten, right?  But before you find a "Free Kitten" online (after necessary vet expenses becomes at least $150), think about your lifestyle and why you want a kitten.  If you're looking for a family member or companion, who will curl up on your lap with each invitation or possess certain personality traits, there is no way to determine a kitten's personality, once he/she matures into an adult cat.  Remember, in just a few short months, kittens quickly grow out of their tiny, cute, eat-sleep-play stage.  Are you committed to being a lifelong guardian to that "Free Kitten" for possibly the next 20 years?

When you visit CRAFT's sanctuary, you interact with the cats in a large, cage-free environment, seeing their true personalities and temperaments.  Volunteers are on hand to help introduce you to cats that meet your needs and wants.  You take your time getting to know them individually and see if you find a 'love connection'.  If problems do arise after adoption, we have volunteers available to help find solutions.  Also, a return policy accepting any adopted CRAFT cat, to be returned for any reason, without the threat of being euthanized like kill shelters.

Cats available at CRAFT range in age from about 6 months on up to geriatric (15 to 20 years!), although most are between 1 and 6 years old.  They are examined by licensed vets and medical issues are addressed (dentals are the most common area of neglect).  All cats receive spay or neuter, FVRCP vaccinations, deworming, microchips, and test for Feline Leukemia.  Some also get rabies vaccine, flea and earmite treatment, FIV testing and more.  After application is approved, adoption fee is only $25.  How is CRAFT able to provide all this for such a small fee?  We rely on donations from our community and occasional grants to help cover the costs of running our No Kill facility.
