Ready To Adopt?

Our adoption process is designed to help us set up safe and successful adoptions. The majority of the time we only do local adoptions in the Southern California area. If you do not live in the LA area please check with us before filling out an application by e-mailing us @ info@therescuetrain.org.

We Take The Guess Work Out!

We invest a lot of time, money and love into each animal in our care to help the adopter know what kind of pet they are adopting. Unless there is a medical reason all our animals are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped.

STEP 2) Submit Application for the Cat of Your Choice

The application process is not meant to be an invasion of privacy but a tool to help us find out if one of our cats would fit happily into your home and lifestyle. We spend a lot of time and funds to get to know our rescues and your application helps set both you and them up for a successful adoption.

STEP 3) Meet the Cat

By appointment only. If your application is approved, you will be contacted to meet the animal at a convenient time. We ask that everyone who will be living with the pet attend the meeting.

STEP 4) Home Check

While a home visit is required prior to final placement, it does not guarantee adoption. We like to see where our cats will be living to make sure that they will be in a safe and secure environment. Often we can help with unforeseen health risks and help secure your environment for your new family member.

STEP 5) Adoption Contract

The adoption contract is a legal binding contract between the adopter and our organization.

STEP 6) Tax Deductible Donation

There is a minimum, tax deductible, non-refundable donation of $125.00 per cat. The donation helps us recoup a small fraction of the cost of caring for the cat and allows us to continue our life saving work.

STEP 7) Delivery of Your New Family Member

We come with education and helpful hints to help things go smoothly and take the guess work out of what to expect when bringing your new pet home. We are here to be a support system if you should need us.

Not Up For It?

If you don't want to go through our screening process please consider adopting a pet from a city or county shelter. Many of these animals will face euthanasia simply due to overcrowding because of pet overpopulation.
