Adopting A Kitten - Please Read

Kittens require extra veterinary care. They will have received their 8 week distemper shots by the time they are ready for adoption, but adopters will be responsible for taking kittens to a vet for 12 and 16 week distemper shots, rabies vaccination, and spay/neuter surgery. In addition to the $140  fee to adopt a pet, the shelter is required by law to take a $40 spay/neuter deposit fee. When the owner has his kitten spayed or neutered, he may send a copy of the paperwork to the Mansfield Shelter Friends and request a refund of the $40 deposit, or leave it as a donation.
