PET ADOPTION APPLICATION
Thank you for your interest in adopting a pet from us. Please read the following carefully. Our adoption application is the first step of the adoption process which can also include a home visit.
PPAH is a foster-based non-profit rescue run solely by volunteers. We care greatly for the animals under our supervision. It is our responsibility to find permanent, loving homes for these animals. PPAH reserves the right to approve or decline any adoption applications that do not meet the organization's adoption criteria as determined at its sole discretion. The application process can take a few days with the verification of vetting, residency, and references. We appreciate your patience.
In order to be considered as an adopter, you must:
PLEASE NOTE: We are a Chicago based rescue with volunteers around the Chicagoland area, we ONLY adopt animals to homes in the greater Chicago area. We do not adopt cats outside of the state of Illinois. If you are not in the greater Chicago area, please check Petfinder or Adopt a Pet for adoptable cats in your own local area.
We honor and prioritize applicants in order of inquiry submittal
PLEASE BE ADVISED:
All kittens must be adopted with another kitten or into a home with another young cat with which he or she can play and socialize. Most no-kill rescues nationwide adhere to this policy. This policy is NOT based on a desire to increase our number of adoptions, rather to ensure that the kittens we rescue, nurture, and love are adopted into homes that offer the best possible environment for their social development.
If you wish to adopt two or more animals, please list them in the 1st Choice field separated by a comma.
