The Pat Brody Shelter For Cats - Lunenburg Pet Shelter

The Pat Brody Shelter For Cats

It is a Limited door shelter for cats dedicated to the rescue, care & placement of homeless cats. The Shelter’s primary function is the rescue, sheltering, and adoption of stray and abandoned cats. Volunteers maintain, clean, and feed the animals and shelter facility. The shelter is a clean, safe, caring refuge. Approximately 75 volunteers maintain the shelter and give needed attention to the animals. Volunteers solicit appropriate home-placement for all shelter animals and educate the public about animal welfare issues through the distribution of a newsletter and participation in community events. In order to ensure that rescued cats do not contribute to overpopulation, ALL cats and kittens are spay/neutered, given FVRCP and Rabies shots, and tested for FELV/FIV before adoption. Shelter kittens are spay/neutered between 8 and 12 weeks of age, depending upon their weight. Rescued animals are put to sleep by veterinarians only if they are diagnosed as severely ill or diseased.

Adoption Process

Adoptions are by appointment only. We do not have open viewing hours. You must be at least 21 years of age to adopt from us and must have your landlord’s permission if you are living in an apartment. We may request a written letter of consent from your landlord. Donation prices for our cats range from $175.00 - $350.00 depending on the age, health, breed and disposition of the cat. Special breeds and exotics can range from $250.00-$350.00. We are only able to accept cash or checks at this time. Prior to adoption, all of our cats and kittens have been vet checked, microchipped, had rabies and distemper shots, been tested for FeLV/FIV, treated for ear mites and fleas, de-wormed, spayed or neutered, and given any other necessary medical care. (The only exception is that some kittens are not yet old enough to have their rabies shot.). We reserve the right to refuse to adopt a cat to anyone we feel would not provide a good home. If you have other pets in your household, they must be up-to-date on vaccinations before you adopt a new kitty from us. We require that each adoptive person sign a contract that they will NOT surgically declaw any cat adopted from us. We would be happy to adopt to you a cat that came to us already declawed. Kittens under the age of 4-5 months MUST be adopted in pairs, unless you already have a young cat at home. We have seen that kittens do much better developmentally and socially when they have a playmate to interact and grow with. This is a general guideline, and some kittens 4 months and older must still be adopted in pairs if they are bonded to other cats. The youngest kittens we will ever adopt out are 8 weeks old. Kittens younger than this are infants and still rely on their mother for many things. If you have problems with your new cat adjusting to your home, we require that you correspond with our shelter behavior specialist before returning the cat to us. Returns are conditional on space availability at the shelter and you may have to wait until we have the room to take the cat back.
