EAPL Kitten Spay/Neuter Policy

by admin

Kitten adoption fee is $75.  If not altered at time of adoption, spaying and neutering is the responsibility of the adopter, but a refundable spay/neuter deposit is required to be collected.

Spay/Neuter deposit of $50 is required if not altered at time of adoption due to age. Per Department of Agriculture’s requirement, EAPL will collect a $50 deposit for any animal unaltered at time of adoption due to age. The $50 deposit will be refunded once adopter has shown sufficient proof of alter.

Department of Agriculture’s rules and regulations:

4. Except as provided in § 35-80-106.4(3)(a), (b), (c) and (d), It shall be unlawful to sell, transfer, or adopt any dog or cat that is not already spayed or neutered prior to leaving the facility unless the prospective owner has paid a deposit to the facility and signed a
written agreement with the facility to have the animal spayed or neutered.

a. The amount of the deposit shall be $50.

b. The deposit may be reclaimed upon presentation of written correspondence from a licensed veterinarian that the animal has been spayed or neutered within 90 days of adoption, sale, or transfer. The facility may extend the 90 day requirement upon presentation of written correspondence from a licensed veterinarian stating that the life or health of the adopted pet may be jeopardized by sterilization. If the deposit is not reclaimed after 90 days, it becomes property of the adopting agency and will be deposited

c. The written agreement to have the animals spayed or neutered will include: age, sex, species, breed, and general description of the animal; date of adoption and date by which the animal must be sterilized; adopting party’s name, address, phone number, and signature; and facility name, address, and phone number.
