Adoption Application—CATS

In Consideration of Your Time . . .  

It is Pound Buddies’ general policy that we do not adopt to homes with unaltered pets or pets not current on vet services; however, we will review applications on a case‐by‐case basis.

A Rewarding Relationship, A Serious Responsibility

Pet ownership is a serious responsibility that offers much love and many lasting rewards.  You are not only adopting a pet, you are adding a new family member to your household.  Pound Buddies strives to ensure that each person who adopts a pet is aware of, and willing to, accept that responsibility. The questions in this application are designed to help our staff make sure there is a good match between each animal and its new family.

Our Adoption Procedure

  • Please completely fill out, electronically “sign” and submit this online Application form. 

  • Our kitties are same-day adoptions after your Application has been received and you visit the Shelter or our weekend Adopt-a-Pet events at Tractor Supply Co. (Whitehall Rd.) or PETCO (Muskegon).
