Adoption Policies


•    MISR does not adopt cats to any applicant under 25 yrs of age.
•    MISR reserves the right to deny any application, for any reason, without disclosure.
•    Existing cats in the home must be indoor-only cats.  All MISR cats are indoor-only cats.
•    Existing cats within the home must be tested negative for both Feline Leukemia and FIV.
•    Existing animals within the home must be up to date on vaccines.
•    Existing cats in the home must be spayed or neutered.
•    No cats or kittens can be given as gifts.  Gift certificates towards an adoption are available.
•    Adoption applications and vet reference forms are valid for six months from date of approval.  After 6 months, a new adoption application and vet reference check will be required.
•    MISR discourages adoptions to households with 5 or more animals.
•    MISR does not allow declawing of any of our kittens or cats.
*    MISR does not allow adoption by college students as we feel this is an unstable situation.

Kitten Policy 
•    MISR strongly prefers to place all kittens "in pairs" when possible.  Kittens under 4 months of age must be adopted with a littermate, another kitten, or an adult feline companion cat unless the adopter already has another cat already in the household.
•    Kittens  will not be adopted to homes with children under the age of 7 years, except on a case by case consideration.
•    Kittens under 4 months of age will only be placed in a home with a dog if the dog has been previously exposed to cats and proven to be cat friendly.

Kittens Policy - between 4 months and 6 months of age
•    We strongly prefer to place all kittens "in pairs" when possible, unless a companion kitty is already in the household or the kitten will have human companionship the majority of the time.
•    Kittens will not be placed in homes with children under the age of 7years, except on a case by case consideration.

Transport Policy
•    We will adopt cats to approved out of state applicants, however ground transportation arrangements are solely the responsibility of the adopter.
•    We will not ship cats via airline, although they may travel on a case by case approved basis, along with a passenger within the cabin of the aircraft. No cat will be shipped as cargo, ever.
•    Upon application approval, we will make every effort to work with your travel arrangements, but please understand we can not "hold" a cat for you while you spend several weeks arranging transport. Generally we would like the cats to move on to their forever homes as quickly as possible.

Please Note:

These are our Standard Policies. Exceptions may be made on a case by case basis, as applicable to a particular cat, circumstances, and/or potential homes.
