Paws Patrol Adoption Contract
Please do not complete this form until you have been contacted by Paws Patrol and your adoption has been approved by a Paws Patrol representative. Completing an application does not automatically approve your adoption.
I agree to adopt (Cat's name(s))
MM slash DD slash YYYY
Paws Patrol has discussed with me the pet's behaviors and habits. Paws Patrol makes no representation or warranties regarding this pet's condition or behavior. I hereby fully and completely release, indemnify and hold harmless Paws Patrol from any and all loss, damage, expense, claim or cause of action in any way arising out of or relating to this pet or to any of Paws Patrol's efforts to facilitate the rescue and adoption of this cat. I will keep the cat(s) confined to a separate room for up to 5 days.
Paws Patrol has given me a record of this pet’s medical history as known. I understand that this pet has received veterinary care through the Paws Patrol adoption program but undiagnosed conditions sometimes exist. I understand that if this cat is diagnosed with a previously undiagnosed condition that existed at the time of adoption, I may keep the cat and assume full responsibility for its treatment, or I may return the cat to Paws Patrol.
If the cat needs to return to Paws Patrol for shots, or to a vet for surgery or other care, I have been informed of the information and will keep the dates provided. Please note: Vet guidelines recommend you have a FELV/FIV test done in 6 months if you are adopting a kitten or cat who recently was outside.
I have been advised of any health issues, behaviors, or habits the cat has and have been told the cat's current diet
I represent that I am adopting this pet as a companion and personal pet. I will maintain this pet at my primary residence listed below. I will inform Paws Patrol if I move from the address on this contract and can no longer keep the pet.

I agree to obey any applicable vaccination laws and obtain and maintain licenses or permits relating to this pet as required by law.
I agree to allow a representative of Paws Patrol to visit my residence at a reasonable time to ensure the terms of the contract are being followed.
If I find that I cannot keep this pet, I will return it to Paws Patrol along with its complete medical record. Under no circumstances will this pet be abandoned, sold or turned over to an animal shelter or to any other person.
I agree to provide the care and attention necessary to ensure this pet’s health and well-being including: Adequate, quality food and water. A collar and Paws Patrol ID tag on the cat at all times. We also suggest you add a tag with your phone number. Secure, indoor shelter for cats. Paws Patrol requires that cats be kept inside. Indoor cats live longer. Your cat has received top-notch, expensive care while in our foster homes, and we want to ensure your cat will continue to have a long, healthy life. If your cat does escape outside, please call us right away so we can suggest ways to bring him back quickly.
Paws Patrol does not allow declawing, even by laser. If scratching is a problem, we will show you how to trim claws. We recommend alternatives such as Soft Claws and we can discuss other solutions. If you insist on having a declawed cat, please look for a cat who has previously been declawed.
I understand that this is an adoption contract and not a contract for the sale of this pet. The contract and the application I submitted to Paws Patrol constitute the entire contract for the adoption of this pet, and no prior representations or agreements are of any force and effect unless incorporated herein.
Due to the unreliability of testing before eight months of age, I understand that this pet may not have been tested for FeLV/FIV. I further understand that Paws Patrol recommends following your vet guidelines for testing and vaccinating against FeLV.
I represent that I am at least 18 years of age and I have read this entire contract and understand all of the representations and conditions incorporated herein.
IF I RETURN THE CAT(S) FOR ANY REASON, I UNDERSTAND MY PAYMENT WILL BE CONSIDERED A DONATION.
I UNDERSTAND THAT NONCOMPLIANCE OF ANY PROVSION OF THIS CONTRACT WILL CONSTITUTE A BREACH OF CONTRACT AND PAWS PATROL SHALL HAVE THE RIGHT TO DEMAND THE IMMEDIATE RETURN OF THIS PET.
