Review for ASPCA - American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am incredibly impressed by the ASPCA's adoption program. They are very organized, and both their staff and many volunteers walk you through the process from start to finish. It's the additional support provided, however, that I want to write about. You are given a free vet visit to use within a month of when you adopt (I adopted a kitten, so this is to make sure his booster shots are done). They also provide an extensive information packet with everything you need to know about caring for a cat - I am a previous cat owner and rescuer, and I still learned new things. They provide a hotline to call with any questions re: health, behavior, or any other support you need; I've used it a few times already. At no extra cost, they gave me a bag of both the dry and wet food brands they'd been feeding my cat so that I could transition him smoothly. They also gave a collar with engraved tag. For the $125 adoption fee (it's lower for older cats), you get all of the above as well as spaying/neutering, deworming, vaccinating, SNAP testing and microchipping. They follow up afterwards by e-mail to see how you're doing, and they'll take back any pet they adopt out if you can no longer provide care. I am thoroughly impressed and recommend them highly! They've got animal rescue down to a science. Sidenote: they also play a huge role in spaying/neutering NYC's feral cat population. Being TNR certified, I have been able to bring several stray cats and have them spayed/neutered for free.
