Adopt A Rescued Cat
All of our rescued cats have been spayed or neutered, treated for parasites such as fleas and worms, and tested for feline diseases like FIV and Feline Leukaemia. Any health issues or injuries at the time of rescue or during fostering are also addressed to ensure our rescues are happy, healthy and ready for adoption. All of our adoptees have been microchipped
Today seems like the best day to meet your new best furry friend!
Nugget is a beautiful and affectionate cat who you will soon discover becomes very attached. She loves snuggles and attention, and her happy place is sitting or lying on your lap where she will purr happily away. This grand dame still romps and plays with her little string toys. She loves chicken for a treat and may try to swipe some cheese off your plate if it's in her reach. Bird-watching is a favourite pastime, where she will sit on the window perch and chatter at the avian passers-by. Nugget is also quite vain; luxuriating in her grooming sessions and keeping herself very tidy. She has consistently and reliably used her litter box, which is a perk for a cat getting on in her years.
Nugget has been entrenched in her current home for five years, but the arrival of a baby three years ago has really challenged her sensibilities. She is no longer getting the attention that she would have had previously, and she has occasionally swatted and hissed at the now-fearful child. We believe the crying and loud, percussive sounds made by the child is causing her anxiety, where she will race around the house at night, creating a ruckus.
Nugget would be happiest in a quiet home without small children. She thrives on routine as she often puts her people to bed at night, meowing to remind them that "It's time!". She deserves to be the queen of the house and the subject of slavish pampering.
Nugget is estimated to be 10 years old, spayed, vaccinated, and tested for disease. We ask for a donation of $150 for which you would receive a charitable tax receipt.
Adoption Application : The first step
Adoption applications are submitted to the adoption committee of Halifax Cat Rescue Society for approval. After approval of your application, a meeting will be set up between you, the foster home and an HCRS representative according to everyone's convenience.
Although this application may seem lengthy, we ask that you take time to answer all the questions as best as possible. Thank you for considering adoption, we'll be in touch within a few days. Sometimes, we take a bit longer and this is because we are such a small group of volunteers. Please take this into consideration before you fill out the application. The process is not as fast as with the SPCA or other shelters who have an actual shelter and many more workers.
IT IS HCRS POLICY THAT OUR KITTENS BE ADOPTED EITHER AS PAIRS OR TO A FAMILY WITH A CAT(S) ALREADY IN THE HOME. THIS IS TO ENSURE FURTHER SOCIALIZATION OF NEWLY RESCUED KITTENS. THIS POLICY IS ENFORCED WITH ALL OF OUR KITTEN ADOPTIONS.
ADOPTION DONATIONS CAN BE MADE TO HCRSFUNDRAISING@OUTLOOK.COM ONCE YOUR APPLICATION HAS BEEN APPROVED
