Cat Adoption Application CAT Application Form Completely fill out and submit the application. If you do not hear back within 10 days, please assume that your application was not selected. Applications that are selected are vet-checked, and personal reference checks will be done as well. If the adoption is approved, an adoption contract will be signed, an adoption fee will be paid, and you take your new pet home. Please give careful consideration to adopting a cat. Be sure that your lifestyle allows the time, patience and expense this pet will need over the years. Be ready for a 15-20 year commitment. Animals are not toys or short-term commitments, and they are NOT disposable.
