COVID-19 Adoption Policies Update

Due to the ever spreading of COVID-19, we have made the decision to make some changes to how we do adoptions.

We will basically be doing “curbside hands free” adoptions. Here’s how it will be done:

1 – Once the application is approved, an appointment will be set with the foster home.

2 – The adoption contract will be emailed to the adopter prior to the appointment, the electronic signature will be completed & emailed back to STPR.

3 – Adoption fee will be paid via PayPal or Venmo (prior to cat leaving foster home).

4 – Upon their arrival at the STPR foster home, the adopter will place their carrier on the front porch and return to their car (during the appointment, the adopter will stay in their car the whole time).

5 – Adopters will call foster parents to announce their arrival.

6 – Foster will retrieve the carrier, place the cat in the carrier, and bring the cat/carrier out to the adopter’s car.

7 – Masks will be worn by both parties at all times (fosters will also be wearing disposable gloves).

What this means is there will be no entry into STPR foster homes and there will be no “visiting” of the cats.

We have implemented these practices to better ensure the safety of all parties involved. We thank you for your cooperation.
