Spay & Neuter Your Pets!
Tame, healthy animals needing to go into an adoption program...
PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE SECTION BEFORE CONTACTING US.
Harris and surrounding county shelters are killing 300 cats and dogs PER DAY. There is only so much room in shelters when people are surrendering hundreds of animals per day. TLC has a limited amount of space to hold cats until they are ready for adoption. For this reason, we cannot take adoptable cats/kittens.
Due to the high number of people who have entered into our foster program and then completely failed to follow instructions, we no longer help with vouchers for vetting. Unfortunately, after we vetted the cats/kittens they were either given away, killed because they were not kept indoors, or completely feral (wild). If you want our help, you will need to:
1. Foster and feed the animals indoors until they are fully vetted and are healthy. Kittens can be spayed/neutered at 2 pounds (approximately 12 weeks of age). It only takes a cage or a small room.
2. Cats/Kittens must be tame and able to be handled by potential adopters. No one wants a kitten in their house if it is wild. The cats/kittens will be at a retail store. We cannot have wild cats on display where someone will get hurt.
3. Pay for the vetting for all cats/kittens. The following vetting must take place before the animals can go up for adoption: spay/neuter, current on all vaccinations, and combo tested for FeLV and FIV. If you have the mother cat and a litter under 3 months of age, you can just combo test the mother cat. If you do not have the mother cat, you must combo test every kitten. Texas Litter Control will micro-chip the cats after all other vetting is done. Please do not have your vet micro-chip them. Many vets use micro-chips which require expensive annual registration. If you micro-chip the cat, you will have to pay to transfer the micro-chips to Texas Litter Control. You can ask for help with vetting from friends. If you ask for donations to cover vetting, the donations are deductible to the full extent allowed by law. You can also deduct anything you spend on the cats/kittens once they are in the adoption program. Just ask for a donation receipt.
Please do not contact us if you do not meet these 3 criteria. We are getting 15 to 20 calls and emails per day. Everyone has really cute, sweet kittens and a great reason why they cannot foster them.
To proceed with this process, click on the link below and fill out the form. If you are not willing to foster and pay for the vetting, please do not contact us. We will not respond to your request.
We hope you make the right decision and keep these wonderful animals from being another statistic.

Our Sanctuary is for extreme circumstances...
Feral cats as a general rule of thumb should NOT be relocated. We are a place of absolute last resort. We do accept Feline Leukemia positive kitties with a $500 minimum donation, but there is a waiting list. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
