The nursery is run out of my home, so there are NO PUBLIC HOURS. Meet and greets are scheduled after an application is submitted and approved. 

Once our kittens are healthy and at least 12 weeks of age, they are available for adoption. There is a $90 fee to adopt a kitten.

The fees collected from the adoption of kitten help to offset some of the costs involved in providing veterinary care for the kittens and preparing the kittens for placement into a new home. Countless hours of love and time have been poured into keeping these babies alive, happy, and healthy, and we need to make sure they go to homes where such care will be continued.​​

Kittens go to their new homes fully vetted, including: 
 

-Full wellness check ​

-Rabies

-FIV/FeLV Testing
-FVRCP/FELV (4-Way w/Leukemia)​
-Spay/Neuter ​
-3x Deworming ​ ​

The Intent to Adopt Questionnaire below is designed to help The Itty Bitty Kitty Committee (IBKC) and yourself determine if a specific kitten is the right one for you and your household. All adopting parties are required to complete this form prior to adoption. The IBKC reserves the right to deny any adoption based on

answers to this questionnaire and/or interviews prior to adoptions.

 

 IMPORTANT ADOPTION INFORMATION
Please read before filling out an application.

FILLING OUT THE INTENT TO ADOPT FORM

  • Fill out the form thoroughly.  Incomplete forms will not be considered.
     

  • Must be 21+ to apply.   
     

  • PLEASE DO NOT APPLY ON A WHIM. Out of consideration for the time and energy of our small adoptions team, we ask that you apply only when certain that you are ready and able  to adopt. If your application is approved, we will reach out using your preferred method of communication as indicated on the adoption application. If you do not respond within 24 hours we will move on to the next applicant.
     

  • Please note that due to the high volume of inquiries about each kitten, you may not receive a response. This is why it's important to include as much information that will help your application stand out.

    APPROVED APPLICATIONS

  • If you do not receive a response within 72 hours after submitting your application via email, your application is considered approved. Approved applications do not guarantee a kitten.
     

  • Approved applications will be kept on file for 90 days. If there is another kitten that you are interested in during that time, please let us know that you have applied in the past and have had an application approved via email (gia.ibkc@yahoo.com).
     

  • Applications that indicate interest in a specific kitten will take priority over vague applications. If you indicate on your application that you are not interested in a specific kitten, (i.e. "a female kitten", "a longhaired male," "any kitten"), we ask that you keep an eye on our "Available Kittens" album on Facebook. Once you see a kitten you are interested in meeting, follow up with an additional email to gia.ibkc@yahoo.com and let us know the specific kitten(s) you are interested in. 
     

  • LOCATION
    We are located in Northeast Ohio (Youngstown, Ohio and Berlin Center, OH). We are not able to transport kittens. If you are interested in adopting a kitten, you are required to make the trip from wherever you are located to pick up your new baby. 
     

  • If you are fostering to adopt, you are responsible for bringing your kitten to follow up vet appointments. Failure to do so can result in loss of adoption approval.
