Frequently Asked Questions About The Adoption Process

WHERE ARE THE ANIMALS KEPT?
NASAP is foster home based meaning we have no central location or kennel the animals are housed in. We are completely reliant on dedicated volunteers opening their home to an animal as foster homes. Making the animal a part of the family so we get to know their personality and quirks to make it easier to find the right permanent home for them.
WHY IS THERE AN ADOPTION FEE? WHAT DOES THE NASAP ADOPTION FEE INCLUDE?

The following services are included in each adoption fee:

SPAYING OR NEUTERING

All NASAP cats and dogs are spayed or neutered before they are adopted into new homes. Kittens and puppies are adopted out with a coupon that is provided to our veterinarian when the kitten/puppy is old enough to be spayed/neutered. This coupon covers the cost of the surgery.

Retail cost at a selection of Edmonton Veterinarians:

  • Feline Neuter- $100 – $300
  • Feline Spay- $300 – $500
  • Canine Neuter- $200 – $400 (depending on weight)
  • Canine Spay- $400 – $6000 (depending on weight)

VACCINATIONS

All NASAP kittens are vaccinated at 8 weeks, 12 weeks and 16 weeks with 3-way vaccine (Feline Rhinotracheitis-Calici-Panleukopenia Vaccine). Cats over 6 months are vaccinated on intake and 1 month later.

Puppies are vaccinated at 8 weeks, 12 weeks and 16 weeks with Canine Distemper-Adenovirus type 2-Parainfluenza-Parvovirus Vaccine. Dogs over 6 months old are vaccinated on intake and 1 month later.

All animals over 4 months of age are vaccinated for rabies

Retail cost at a selection of Edmonton Veterinarians:

  • Cat/Kitten Vaccine (single): Approximately $55
  • Dog/Puppy Vaccine (single): Approximately $55

TREATMENT FOR PARASITES

All NASAP cats/kittens and dogs/puppies receive a dose of dewormer and Revolution before adoption to ensure they are parasite free.

Retail cost at a selection of Edmonton Veterinarians:

  • Dewormer: Approximately $15
  • Revolution: Approximately $45

FELINE IMMUNODEFICIENCY VIRUS/FELINE LEUKEMIA TESTING

All NASAP cats and kittens are tested for the Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) and Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) before adoption.

Retail cost at a selection of Edmonton Veterinarians:

  • FIV/FeLV test: $60 – $120

POST-ADOPTION VET CHECKUP

At the time of adoption, the adoptive parents of NASAP cats/kittens and dogs/puppies are provided with a coupon for a post-adoption health checkup at a partner veterinary clinic. Please note that this visit must be booked within 10 days of the adoption.

Retail cost at a selection of Edmonton Veterinarians: Exam: $60 – $80

ADDITIONAL VETERINARY CARE

Some animals come into NASAP’s care perfectly healthy, but many others are in need of immediate additional veterinary care to return them to a happy and healthy state. These procedures often include dentistry and/or tooth extractions, bloodwork, urinalyses, ultrasounds, x-rays, thorough grooming or even major surgey like knee surgery or hip surgery (FHO). These additional procedures are all performed prior to adoption and do not change the adoption fee.

ALL of these services are included in the NASAP cat ($180), kitten ($200), dog ($350) and puppy ($450) adoption fees. Compare that to the total market value of care that your new NASAP animal has received and it is obvious that our adoption fees are not only reasonable, but an excellent deal!

HOW CAN I MEET THE ANIMALS?

There are two ways to meet our animals:

If you see an animal listed on our website and you would like to meet them:

1) You can Contact Us or click the “Adopt Me” link on the animal’s profile, and fill out the online questionnaire as thoroughly as possible. Then submit the questionnaire. A volunteer will pass along your contact information to the animal’s foster home. The foster home will then contact you and will arrange with you a time to come and visit the animal.

2) The other way to visit an animal is to attend one of our Pet Adoption Days. Several times a month volunteers bring their foster animals to a number of pet stores in Edmonton. Please see our Events page for the dates and locations where this is happening. Contact Us to find out which animals will be at these Adoption Days.

IF I AM INTERESTED IN A PARTICULAR ANIMAL, AM I GUARANTEED TO ADOPT THE ANIMAL?

Not necessarily. Our foster homes are volunteers who work very hard to try to match the animal they have taken responsibility for to a family that most suits the needs of that animal. Many animals generate a number of inquiries and a home is chosen based on what the foster home believes to be best for that particular animal. Please understand that this does not mean that you would not provide a proper home but that the animal is placed based on what our foster home believe to be most suitable.

If your adoption request is turned down, we encourage you to continue to watch our website and make application to adopt another animal. NASAP reserves the right to refuse any adoption request for reasons to be kept private and confidential within the administration of the organization.

WHAT IF I HAVE OTHER ANIMALS?
NASAP encourages potential adopters to bring any animals in their household when they meet the animal they are looking to adopt, if the foster home thinks this would be beneficial – please ask the foster home about this. This helps to make sure that all of the animals will get along BEFORE the adoption takes place. When you make arrangements with the foster home, please talk to them about bringing your animals.
ARE THE ANIMALS GOOD WITH CHILDREN?

Every animal is different. If NASAP knows if an animal is good or bad with children, we will include that in the animal’s profile. However, sometimes this is unknown. 

WHO DECIDES IF A FAMILY IS ALLOWED TO ADOPT AN ANIMAL?
Our foster homes choose the home that they feel is the best match, and that decision will be backed up by NASAP.
DOES THE ANIMAL COME WITH A BIRTH CERTIFICATE OR A PEDIGREE?
We occasionally do get animals that are purebred and have a birth certificate and pedigree, but the vast majority do not. This is because a lot of the animals we have are rescued from pounds or found as strays.
IF YOU DON’T KNOW THE HISTORY OF THE ANIMAL, HOW CAN YOU TELL THE BREED?
We rarely know for sure the exact breed of the animal. We make a visual assessment when we rescue the animal, and based on that try and determine the breed(s). Many of our volunteers have been assessing animals for years, and are very proficient at it. We can not make a guarantee however.
IF YOU DON’T KNOW THE HISTORY, HOW DO YOU KNOW THE AGE?
We rarely know for sure the exact age of the animal. Frequently we rely on a veterinarian’s estimate of the age of the animal, which they do primarily by examining the teeth. We can not make a guarantee however.
WHAT HAPPENS IF MORE Than ONE PERSON WANTS TO ADOPT AN ANIMAL, HOW IS THE CHOICE MADE WHO GETS THE ANIMAL?

In the case where we have received multiple inquiries on a single animal, we will pass the contact information for all of the people interested to the foster home. The foster home will then contact these people, and try and find the best possible fit for the animal.

We do not adopt on a first come, first serve basis. All application are equally screened and assess for the best compatibility for the foster animals needs.

WHY DO YOU CHARGE FOR ANIMALS?
Along with donations, NASAP uses the adoption fees to provide medical attention, food and shelter to homeless, abused or unwanted animals. NASAP’s largest expenses are for medical bills, which include emergency procedures, medications and spay/neuter procedures.
WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT ARE ACCEPTED?
Payments can be e-transfer or cash at the time of the adoption
ARE THE ANIMALS UP TO DATE ON THEIR SHOTS?
Yes! The animals receive their first set of shots and boosters as required. If they are adopted prior to the proper age then the adopter is responsible for completing the boosters. But NASAP strives to complete all medical care prior to adoption
WHAT HAPPENS IF THE ANIMAL ISN’T ADOPTED INTO THE RIGHT HOUSE?

NASAP realizes that there are going to be some cases where an animal just does not fit into a household. If this does happen, please contact us!

Our animals are always returnable.

We will do our best to try and help resolve the issues and will talk about potential solutions to the problem.

IS THE ADOPTION FEE REFUNDABLE?
No. The adoption fee is not refundable.
ARE THE ANIMALS SPAYED OR NEUTERED?
Yes! Dogs and cats are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Puppies and kittens will be spayed or neutered once 10 weeks or appropriate weight. We do this to reduce the number of abandoned or unwanted litters and pets.
CAN I ALTER THE ANIMAL? (I.E. DECLAW, DOCK A TAIL, CROP EARS)
No. Included in the adoption contract is a clause specifying that no operations such as those specified above can be performed on the animal being adopted. Operations such as declawing, tail docking and ear cropping are extremely painful operations for the animal and in the vast majority of cases do not have a functional reason.
ARE THE ANIMALS TATTOOED OR MICROCHIPPED?

All NASAP animals are microchipped prior to adoption with EIDAP microchips.
We occasionally tattoo an animal during their spay or neuter surgery. 

We highly recommend you keep microchip information readily available and up to date in case of an emergency – it is inexpensive, and most times free, and could save a great deal of heartache should the animal become lost.

I DON’T THINK I AM READY TO ADOPT, BUT WISH TO HELP, HOW CAN I HELP?

There are many ways you can help! You can make a donation, either general or a targeted donation to one of our special funds and know that 100% of the money goes towards saving an animal.

We are always looking for volunteers to help in many different ways. And we are always needing FOSTER HOMES! Apply today to help save a life and find a FURever friend
