Cat Adoption Application

1. ECHS CATS ARE TO BE ADOPTED AS INDOOR-ONLY CATS! Upon rare occasions, ECHS will have feral cats for a barn or similar protected outdoor location, and those cats will be identified specifically as “outdoor cats.”

2. THE ECHS OPPOSES THE PRACTICE OF DECLAWING CATS DUE TO THE PAIN AND PHYSICAL DAMAGE DONE TO THE CAT AND THE BEHAVIORAL PROBLEMS IT OFTEN CAUSES (IE, BITING AND REFUSAL TO USE THE LITTERBOX). DO NOT COMPLETE THIS APPLICATION IF YOU PLAN ON DECLAWING THE CAT!

3. Our goal is to place every cat with a suitably matched home, and the detailed questions below will assist us in meeting that goal. Therefore, completion of this form does not guarantee that ECHS will place a cat in your care. In order to verify the information you give us, there may be up to a 3-business day waiting period to process paperwork.


Thank you for taking time to fill out this application, which will help us to match you with right pet. There may be up to a week waiting period to process paperwork. Completion of this form does not guarantee that the Humane Society will place a pet in your care. ECHS is a charity depending solely on donations and service fees. I understand that if a cat is placed with me, I will pay a NONREFUNDABLE adoption fee.

I certify that the information I have provided is accurate and that any misrepresentation of facts may result in my losing the privilege of adopting a cat through ECHS.
