SSCC Adoption Services
Have you been thinking of adopting a new pet? We may be able to help you.
We have cats and kittens that we take possession of due to extreme circumstances (found in the engine of a traveling truck, left in a box in the forest, owner died, etc.), but because we do not have a cat shelter or any real capacity to have one at our current location, we do urge people to use the King County Shelter. They have a budget of $1 million, operate a nearly no-kill shelter, and have a large number of foster homes. We do have a few foster homes and would welcome more.
We would like to get a nice set of cat condos to house some cats or other small animals but that would take about $7,000 in donations. To build a local shelter would take much more and require a budget that we don’t have. So unless that falls in our lap, we must be very careful how many domestic animals we take in.
Having said that, we find homes for about 100-150 domestic animals, primarily cats. All of our animals are listed on Petfinder.com and are located in foster homes or at one of two veterinary hospitals: Renton Veterinary Hospital and Sawyer Lake Veterinary Hospital.
Thinking of Adoption?
In general, kittens are adopted with a Kitten Pack (services which include doctor's examination and FeLV/FIV testing, all their first year shots, multiple wormings, ear mite and flea treatment, and several nail trims). They are also given a 10% discount on microchip and spay/neuter surgery after adoption.
Thinking of Fostering Felines?
If you are interested in providing foster care for kittens or adults
you can fill out the Foster Home Application and submit it to us for
processing. Sometimes we have friendly kittens and a mom that are easy keepers and sometimes they actually need someone to repeatedly hold and handle them to acclimate them to family
life. In other cases, we need to evaluate adult cats in a new environment. We have had cats in a multi-cat environment that take offense and behave badly. In a new environment, they are completely different cats. Only with alternate sites can we see what the cat will do. If you have an interest in helping use get cats ready for their forever home, we want to meet you!
We often get adult cats that would enjoy the lap cat advantages of being placed with a retired person. Some of the cats would be best as an only cat; others are willing to share owners. Matching pets to their forever homes is our life’s work. Good fits are so rewarding to everyone involved.
We also receive a weird variety of “exotic” or farm critters from barnyard ducks (often presented as wildlife babies) to non-native water turtles (e.g. Red-eared Sliders) and African tortoises, to peafowl, domestic pigeons, bearded dragons, bull frogs, and even weird lizards that stow away in shipping containers from China and elsewhere. We adopt these types of animals out to permanent homes.
