Post Adoption Policies and Procedures
After the adoption is completed and the new pet arrives at the new home, paperwork will be entered in the online data base. The animal will be removed from the list of available pets on the website, if it had been listed on the website. In addition, the microchip will be registered with 24-hour Petwatch to the new pet parent. A temporary 30-day Shelter Care health insurance policy will be issued and sent by e-mail, faxed, or delivered to the new pet parent. The pet parent will be able to extend the coverage by two weeks if they contact Shelter Care within 72 hours of receiving the e-mail. The policy covers accident or injury up to $750, with a $75 deductible. A follow up phone call or post adoption visit is standard policy, so expect to hear from Good Kitties in 7 to 10 days. Let Good Kitties know how the new pet and your family are getting along! Note the follow up check box located on the adoption contact.
We are available and willing to help with any difficulties so don’t hesitate to contact Good Kitties using the phone number or e-mail on the adoption contract. The foster parent’s number is also on the contract for this purpose. We try to find the purrfect match, but should it not work out at any time, Good Kitties will accept the pet back in to the adoption program. Pet parents may NOT transfer ownership of the pet in any way. The pet must be returned to Good Kitties should the new parent not be able to keep it at any time. Please call Good Kitties at any time with difficulties or concerns. We are here to help the animals we have made rescue commitments to! Thank you for helping us to help scores of deserving valley pets!
