WE ACCEPT CATS ON A ROLLING BASIS AS SPACE ALLOWS. APPOINTMENTS ARE REQUIRED FOR SURRENDERS. SURRENDER INQUIRIES CAN BE SENT TO ADOPTIONS@CTCATCONNECTION.ORG
When surrendering a cat, please provide any vet records if at all possible. You can also bring the cat's favorite bed/toy/food etc to help them acclimate to the new environment. Since we are not a vet office, all appointments to get a cat “up to date” made by the shelter, for on vaccinations must be made outside our facility which takes 1-2 weeks. A cat cannot be offered for adoption until the following is completed; if you are able to confirm this information from past vet records and/or take the cat to a vet prior to being surrendered, it increases your chance of being able to surrender the cat to be re-homed through the shelter:
Current rabies vaccine
Proof of FVRCP (distemper) vaccine
Deworming or no issues with parasites or diarrhea
Examination and any issues addressed or shared with the potential adopter – need copy of vet notes.
For that reason – A surrender donation is always appreciated to cover these costs as well as the care provided during the cat’s stay at our Adoption Center.
