Choosing My Cat
It is important to understand that adopting an animal is a lifelong comittment. Many cats live 20 or more years. CITC volunteers are available to acquaint each individual with the pet of their choice. There are a few considerations that are important when bringing a new pet into your home. Volunteers can assist by offering information regarding the cat's "purr-sonality" and behavior patterns. They can also answer questions pertaining to orienting a new kitty to a new home, children, or other existing pets.
Meeting My Cat
CITC has all of it's cats/kittens residing at our shelter in Alpharetta, Ga. On the weekends, some of these will be transported to the Alpharetta PetSmart for the adoption event. If an individual would like to meet a certain animal at the weekend event or during the week, a request can be made using email at email@example.com. Volunteers are happy to transport one or more to the Alpharetta PetSmart to be seen and/or adopted. All kitties have been spayed/neutered, tested, vaccinated, dewormed, and checked for fleas and earmites.
Dogs and Cats?
Harry and Buster had a plan
To liberate a leg of lamb
Harry climbed up, pushed it over
Buster caught it - both in clover!
And so they proved beyond a doubt
That cats and dogs can work it out.
KIDS AND KATS?
For some of us, we can never remember when we didn't have a furry friend. That special pet who always seemed to be around, giving friendly licks, loving rubs with tails that curled around our necks, and that wonderful purr as we napped together. This wonderful little guy is beginning his own special relationship with his special furry friend, Jack.
An adoption questionnaire must be completed and returned to CITC . Adoptees must have a US driver's license or other picture identification.
Once the quesionnaire has been reviewed and approved, an Adoption Agreement is signed. Then kitty can go home! A complete medical record is supplied.

An adoption fee of $100 is required to offset the cost of boarding and medical care. CITC can only accept cash or personal checks at this time. A picture ID is also required.
CITC is not accepting any animals at this time. We will accept cats that have been previously adopted from us not more than three months from the adoption date. For a list of shelters in your area, go towww.animalshelter.org.
In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods. They have never forgotten this.
