Our Courtesy posting or Owner Placement was established to help a cat’s owner or cat’s caretaker find a home for their purebred cat through Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue (PPCR) and to keep these purebreds out of shelters. It is much less stressful for a purebred cat to make only one move in the rehoming process. As a rescue, we have the experience and resources to help find the right now home for these cats.
A Courtesy Post is not in a PPCR foster home, so in the majority of cases we have not met the cat. We are representing information on the website that the owner provided to us via a request form and a detailed phone call.
We are facilitating the connection between the adopter and the owner, so we do not have complete medical records for Courtesy Post cats.
We can only provide information the owner told us. We recommend that you request medical records or permission to contact the owners vet if you have any concerns.
We do charge our standard adoption fee and occasionally a special reduced fee is allowed and noted on the cat. Why the fee? We want to ensure the cat is going to a loving and stable home. This is a much better option for the owner and the cat then a shelter or Craig’s List. The best part of all…you are actually rescuing a cat and 100% of the adoption fee goes to supporting the cats in the PPCR foster system.
There is no cost to you, although a donation is always appreciated. We do charge our standard adoption fee to the adopter. Why? We really want to ensure that the cat goes to a stable and loving home. The fee also helps other cats in our foster system that need special attention. How great is that? Your cat gets a wonderful new home and at the same time other cats in need are helped out.
The actual time can vary from 24 hours to months. We have found having good quality photos and even a short video really helps speed up the process of finding the right adopter. The video can actually show the cat’s personality which is very helpful to adopters.
If you find someone on your own to adopt the cat there is no cost to you. A small donation for the effort to write the bio and get the cat posted is always appreciated.
In some instances we are able to take the cat into our foster system. This is dependent on available space in our foster system and varies day to day. If we are unable to help you, we will provide you with other potential options you can check into.
If we are able to accommodate your cat you will need to fill out and sign an Owner Surrender form. We do not take any cats into our foster system without an Owner Surrender form.
