PLEASE LIST ANY PETS THAT ARE CURRENTLY IN YOUR HOME:
PLEASE LIST THE PETS YOU HAVE OWNED IN THE PAST FIVE YEARS:
In DuPage County it is against the law for animals to venture off of their property without being on a leash. At DuPage County Animal Services it is required to keep all of our adoptable cats indoors unless safely supervised while on a leash and cat harness. We will not be able to complete an adoption for an individual planning on letting the cat(s) outside unsupervised.
Cats that are allowed to roam outside face many dangers such as: Disease, Parasites, Cars, Loose Dogs and/or Wild Animals, and Poisons.
Please answer these questions to the best of your ability. Any questions you have can be discussed with an adoption counselor.
