We often have more cats than are posted here on the website!! We almost always have cats that are recovering from illness, injury, ect. You can see these cats here. We can approve an adoption before these cats are ready for adoption and "hold" the cat until they are ready to go home!
An application must be completed and approved prior to the scheduling of visits to our foster home(s).
We do require that a legally binding adoption contract be signed prior to completion of the adoption. This contract states, among other things, that you will provide food, water, veterinary care; that if the adoption does not work out, you will contact us for return of the cat.
We do have a kitten policy for our cats under 12 months of age. We will only adopt kittens in to homes that either already have another kitten/young cat OR a second kitten/young cat must be adopted along with the first kitten.
We do not accept checks. Adoption donations must be paid by cash or credit/debit card through Paypal.
Except for the persian, himalayan, and exotic shorthair cats listed on this site, South Texas Persian Rescue cannot guarantee the parentage or breed of cats on this site (unless otherwise noted that the cat is "purebreed").
We try to match up our cats with the best possible living environment for everyone involved. Some cats need to be in homes with no children, no dogs, no other cats - and some cats LOVE children, dogs, and/or other cats! We want to make sure that everyone in the family is happy!
The first step to adoption is completing the application. The application is available for download here on the website. Two personal references and a vet reference are required (three personal references if you do not have a veterinary reference). After we received a completed application, and the initial checks have been conducted, a phone interview is required. If all goes well, you will be approved to adopt one of our cats!
After approval, an appointment is set up for you to come and meet the cat(s). We do not ship or provide any transportation. You will have to travel to San Antonio to meet and pick up your cat.
Adoption Donation Fees - Our adoptions are as follows: adult cat is $150-$250, kitten is $175 to $275. Donation fees may vary based on age, breed, and declaw status. This fee includes the basic vetting detailed below.
Veterinary Care Provided to each cat - All cats are treated for any known existing medical condition(s). They are spayed/neutered, FIV/FELV tested, and given all necessary immunizations before adoption. In addition, all cats are de-wormed and flea treated.
