Review for ASPCA - American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, New York, NY, USA
Their website had helpful information on what I would need to adopt. I was able to bring everything with me and adopt the same day I went into the shelter. The staff was knowledgeable about the cats and was able to show me which cats met my lifestyle and which cats would be best for me based on what I said I was looking for in a cat. The cat I chose was perfect temperament wise for what I was looking for.
I like that the ASPCA does a thorough screening. There were two girls before me that were denied based on their lack of knowledge and improper environment for a cat to live.
My cat has a heart murmur which the staff was open and honest about and gave me the option to speak to the veterinarian. The vet was very patient and answered all of my questions.
I also like that the cat is micro chipped and neutered. There was no adoption fee because he is four, which was also nice! I love the collar and engraved tag they gave me as well! That was a nice bonus.
The staff made sure to send home a good amount of food with me so that the cat could transition easily. They also sent me with a lot of documentation to bring to my family vet, as well as a voucher to see their vet if anything comes up in the 14 days after adoption.
My one (sort of) complaint would be that my cat has one vaccination coming up this week. They said I could wait about 2 weeks but it should be done within the two weeks. Since it was so close to the date It would have been nice is they had just administered it to him on site, but that isn't the biggest deal.
Overall I had a great experience and I would recommend for your next adoption!
