The parties hereto agree that the owners shall abide by the following conditions:

1. ___________________________, Hereinafter referred to as the cat, is being transferred to the adopting owner with the understanding that the adopter is taking possession of the cat to treat and to be responsible for it as their own cat.

2. The cat will be treated as a family member with loving care and affection.  I will do my best to ensure the catís safety and wellbeing.

3. I will feed the cat at least once a day and will provide a continuous supply of fresh water (unless health conditions warrant otherwise.)

4. The cat will be an INDOOR cat ONLY.  Access to the outdoors is dangerous for the cat.  The cat may be leash-walked.

5. I agree to keep the rabies vaccination current and to provide routine and emergency medical care as necessary.

6. I agree to NOT have the cat declawed.  Declawing requires the surgical amputation of the first digit of a catís toes.  It is an extremely painful procedure that can result in unwanted behavior such as biting, aggression or refusal to use the litter box.

7. I am adopting the cat for myself and I agree to not sell, trade, or give away the cat without the prior written consent of BFS.

8. If at any time I can no longer provide proper care for or can no longer keep the cat, I agree to return it to BFS.

9. I agree to not keep the cat confined to a room or small area for long periods of time.

10. I agree to accept responsibility and ownership of the cat at my own risk and I release BFS and its agents from any and all liability arising out of possession and ownership of my cat.  I agree that I am assuming total financial responsibility for my pet as of the date of this contract. BFS and its agents will not be held responsible for any damages or expenses (veterinary or other) incurred during my ownership of the cat.

11. BFS makes every effort to ensure the health of adopted cats; however, we cannot guarantee their health.  I agree to accept responsibility for all future veterinary care for the cat.

12. I/we affirm that no member of my household has been convicted of an animal welfare law violation such as neglect, cruelty, abandonment etc.

13. In the event the cat becomes lost or dies, I will immediately notify BFS.  I will also immediately notify BFS of any change of contact information (address, phone number, or email address).

14. This catís known background and medical history have been discussed with me. I understand that BFS has made no representation concerning the health, condition, training, behavior, or temperament of the cat.

15. I agree to permit BFS to make inquiry about and enforce any of the above conditions and requirements at any time after adoption.

This can include visits to my home and contact with my veterinarian.  I UNDERSTAND THAT FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH ANY OF THE ABOVE PROVISIONS WILL RESULT IN FORFEITURE OF THE CAT TO BFS.

16. I understand that by voluntarily signing this agreement, I am entering into a legal and binding contract with BFS Cat Rescue.  Breach of any term(s) of this agreement is deemed actionable by BFS.  In the event there is a violation of the agreement, I agree to pay a minimum of $500.00 in damages.  Additionally, in order to facilitate the collection of damages for breach of contract, I waive any challenge to venue and agree that the appropriate venue for this matter is the Commonwealth of Oklahoma. Furthermore, I agree to accept service of process by certified mail, return receipt requested, to the address provided in this adoption contract, and specifically waive any right to receive personal service.
