INTERESTED IN ADOPTING?

If you are interested in adopting with us, please consider the following before submitting an adoption application.

  • You must be at least 21 years of age.

  • Adoptions are currently limited to the United States. In some rare cases, Canadian adoptions will be considered.

  • You must be willing to spend the time and money necessary to provide care to the animals you'll be adopting for the rest of their lives. On average, cats live between 13-17 years. On average, dogs live between 10-13 years

  • Our adoptable animals' needs are our top priority. We believe in a quality-over-quantity model for adoption. We take the time necessary to evaluate potential adopters based on several factors. Each animal has different needs, and unique personalities, all of which are considered in finding their ideal home.

  • Kittens thrive with a feline friend. Therefore, we do not adopt single kittens unless you have another playful cat or kitten at home. Preference is typically given to adopters who are interested in adopting a pair of kittens from our organization

  • Adult cats who prefer the company of other cats are also adopted to homes with another feline.

  • If a specific cat or dog thrives as a solo animal or does not get along with cats, dogs, or kids, we will state that in their adoption listing.

  • If for any reason, you can no longer care for the individual(s) you adopted from Operation Liberation, you must surrender them back to our organization. You will sign a contract stating this. We will make plans to accommodate their return to us to avoid costs or logistics creating a barrier that would potentially lead to them being surrendered elsewhere

  • Be open to keeping in touch with us, as we love to hear updates from adopters!

  • If your application is being considered, you will be contacted to set up a virtual meet and greet, which is hosted using Zoom. For local adoptions, in-person meet and greets take place after the initial, virtual meeting

  • Virtual meet and greets help us get to know you more to determine if you are the right adopter for the cat or dog you've applied to adopt. This call does not guarantee that you have been approved to adopt

  • Florida based adopters must be willing to meet volunteers within a reasonable distance. We can arrange "relays" to assist in transporting the animal to you at no additional cost, however, we expect that you will drive at least an hour to meet your new baby. If you are unable to travel, we can assist in making additional accommodations

  • Out of state transports are available for an additional fee. Options will be discussed with approved applicants and vary based on ground or air travel. Our adoption fees are always within the regional average, so you should not expect to pay an inflated adoption fee, regardless of transportation mode

  • Adoption fees range. This will be discussed during the initial meet and greet call. Out of state adoption fees are typically higher, as they include the cost of transport, and a USDA health certificate.                                              

  Every cat will receive the following care prior to adoption, unless otherwise stated:

  • Sterilized (spayed or neutered).

  • At least two FVRCP vaccines and a rabies vaccine, if age appropriate. If the cat has a medical condition or a history of adverse reactions to vaccinations, this will be stated.

  • Testing for Feline Leukemia and FIV. 

  • Fecal float test for intestinal parasites.

  • Treatment for parasites like fleas, ticks, mites, lice and intestinal parasites. In some cases, treatment or preventatives will be sent home with the adopter to continue at home. 

  • Microchip with free lifetime registration. 

  • Any other necessary care (emergency care, wound care, treatment of infections/illnesses, enucleation surgeries, etc.).

  • Cat and kitten adoption fees range. Kittens adopted locally typically have an adoption fee of $150, unless otherwise stated. 

Every dog will receive the following care prior to adoption:

  • Sterilized (spayed or neutered).

  • At least two DHLPP vaccines, two Bordetella vaccines, rabies vaccine.

  • Age appropriate testing (Heartworm and/ or 4DX).

  • Treatment for parasites like fleas, ticks, mites, lice and intestinal parasites. In some cases, treatment or preventatives will be sent home with the adopter to continue at home. 

  • Microchip with free lifetime registration.

  • Any other necessary care (emergency care, wound care, treatment of infections/illnesses, enucleation surgeries, etc.)

  • Dog adoption fees range depending on age, size and breed. Adoption fees for puppies under one year are typically $400 for local adoptions. Adoption rates for adult and senior dogs range between $200 to $300 for local adoptions. Out of state adoption fees are higher and vary based on the size of the dog, which determines mode of transport.

 

Operation Liberation is a 100% volunteer operated organization. Given the volume of requests and applications we receive, we may not get back to you if you are not being considered. Only applicants who have submitted a completed application will be considered. If you have submitted an adoption application and have not yet heard from us, please follow up with an email to elizabeth@operationliberation.org or  info@operationliberation.org.

Potential adopters will be contacted via email. Please only submit an adoption inquiry if you are serious about adopting and have read the above information. Adoption applications can be completed on our website. If you are considering adopting from us, but are speaking with other organizations, have other meet and greets scheduled, or have upcoming travel, surgical procedures, or obligations that will delay your adoption date, please include that on the application. Please be courteous of our time.
