We team up with the Palo Alto Humane Society and the Feline Friends Network on the Stanford campus to facilitate adoptions of homeless cats (and the occasional dog). When we meet potential adoptees, they are screened for personality and health. Any medical conditions found during screening are treated prior to adoption, and any chronic conditions discovered (for example, Diabetes) are disclosed to prospective adopters.
The cats that we meet and screen are spayed or neutered and vaccinated. If, for any reason, an adoption doesn't work out, adoptees are welcome back at any time.
We keep each adoption candidate until a match is made, no matter how long that takes. You can come and meet adoptees here at the hospital anytime.
They often hang out in our lobby suite to greet visitors!
