FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Where can I see available kittens?
While we do post kittens on our Facebook page, you can find the most updated list of our available kittens here on our website by clicking the adoptions tab, and selecting view adoptable kittens. You can apply to adopt a kitten right from our website. If you do not see a kitten you'd like to meet, or if you are looking for a specific personality you can still fill out an adoptions form and let us know what kind of kitten you are looking for.
What is your adoption fee and why do you require a deposit?
Our adoption fees vary. This could be because of different promotions or due to a kitten needing more attention while in our care. Remember, our adoption fee rarely compensates us for the time, care, or expenses involved with rescue.
Deposits ensure that the adoptee is serious about adopting and not just “window shopping”. Too many times we have held a kitten for someone, only to have them back out. Unfortunately, this makes it harder for these older kittens to find homes. The deposit amount gets deducted from the adoption fee.
Why doesn’t Magnolia’s Hope adopt out kittens under 8 weeks?
All kittens must be dewormed, have age appropriate vaccines, and be spayed or neutered before being adopted. There is an unprecedented amount of kitten overpopulation in shelters, rescues, and on the streets. For this reason, Magnolia’s Hope Kitten Rescue will not adopt out unaltered kittens. All of these services are also included in the adoption fee.
Do you take in adult cats?
While we wish we could help all cats and kittens, Magnolia's Hope Kitten Rescue focuses on orphan neonatal kittens*, and friendly pregnant or nursing cats. We do not take in male cats, kittens over 8 weeks in age, adult female cats who are not pregnant, or pregnant cats who are not friendly and able to be handled safely.
*Kittens under the age of 8 weeks old
What kind of environment are your kittens kept in?
All kittens and cats go through a strict 2 week quarantine. This is to ensure the safety of other resident kittens and to properly evaluate the health and condition of each one. After the 2 week quarantine, kittens are integrated into our general population. This is where the kittens get to interact, play, and socialize with other kittens, dogs, children, and adults. Essentially, our kittens get to be kittens. Other than the quarantine period, the only other time our kittens or cats are kept caged is after a surgery, when a Queen is giving birth, or if it is in the best interest of the kitten.
What are your operating hours?
Magnolia’s Hope Kitten Rescue operates by appointment only for intakes as we have limited spots available. We also operate by appointment only for adoptions. This allows us to give you our complete undivided attention and help you find your purrfect kitten.
Is there a phone number to contact Magnolia’s Hope Kitten Rescue?
At this time, we do not have a listed phone number. We have found it most helpful for our volunteers and fosters to use Facebook Messenger or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
