Adoption Process and Online Questionnaire

Care, Compassion and Commitment to Animals is our priority

The Adoption Process - ready to begin?

Here's how it works

Browse our site to view Chatopia rescued cats currently available for adoption. To start the adoption process, please complete the online Adoption Questionnaire (below). Should your application be selected, the Chatopia volunteer team will get back to you within 4-10 days (your patience is appreciated). Thank you for your interest in adopting a rescued pet. Chatopia is dedicated to finding the best possible forever home for each of our fur friends! When we contact you, we'll discuss your application further and then arrange a visit. This advance approval helps to ensure that you and your future pet are right for each other, and allows you to take the animal home immediately if there's a positive connection during your visit. We do request a donation (adoption fee) for our pets.

Adoption Fee for Cats - $275 plus donation at your discretion

The suggested minimum donation adoption fee for cats is $275 CDN (Kittens $325 - aged 6 months and under). The Fee includes a complete vet physical and treatments for any illness until healthy unless otherwise informed. If required they are fully vaccinated (for kittens this is 2 sets of vaccines), sterilized with a complete comfort package and parasite treated. All cats are groomed and loved prior to adoption. We have all cats temperament evaluated by Maggie Shuter, our founder and Feline Behaviour Consultant, and keep them in quarantine for 14 days where they are observed and again evaluated for their temperament. If you can, please consider an amount greater than the minimum Adoption Fee required.

All money and/or donations we receive goes directly to cover our medical bills; no profit is ever made on an adoptive animal. To avoid travel stress on the animals, local applications will be given priority.

We reserve the right, at any time, to decline a prospective adoptee without explanation. As a benefit to cats in our care, we will not accept applications from families that have the intention to declaw or allow a cat outside without supervision. The information you provide in this questionnaire will NOT be shared with any third party and will be used exclusively for purposes of this adoption process.

All of our animals our fully vaccinated and sterilized prior to adoption.
