Animals coming into a no-kill shelter come from environments where they were NOT taken care of well or provided with proper medical care. Often they have parasites, respiratory infections, intestinal infections, and many other medical issues. Most of these things are contagious and difficult to completely control in multi-cat foster homes. We have treated or begun to treat these issues. Are you willing and able to provide continuing medical care? :
Gentle Touch offers a 14 day return policy on the animal you have adopted.
