We ran into these folks at Easton Petsmart up in Columbus. They seemed nice & everything...until we saw the "application" and their application "process".

Before we could adopt any cat, they told us that we had to fill out an "application form" (okay, other shelters ask for that, too) and then wait 2-4 days for their "decision" (huh??). And the woman started lecturing me & my husband on what would be "best" for us and our current cat -- never mind that we've had cats for years and know what we're looking for.

This application form wants not only my address (normal), but also my employer's name, the names of all previously owned pets & vets, and tons of real nosy information -- such as full names of all household members & THEIR employers, questions such as "If your pet becomes ill, are you willing/able to spend $500 or more for vet care?" Say *what*??. Oh, PLUS references, and the app says the organization will contact everyone to "verify all the information". Plus tons more nosy questions & information lines, with the line that they can "revoke the application" for any reason, at any time.

People, it's a CAT, not an FBI high-security clearance job. I understand wanting to be careful, but ye gods, we never went through ANY of that kind of bullcrap with any of our other cats (much loved, much cared for). You don't need my employer info. You don't need to know who else lives with me or who THEIR employer is. And you sure as hell have no right to any of my income information.

Give these people a pass, and hit up your Humane Society. A lot less hassle.

Forgotten 4 paws is an organization dedicated to adopting shelter type animals. A bunch of nice people who work for a good cause. Please consider adopting a stray, and not a mill or pet store animal! They have a lot of love to give!
