Chapter 8: New Cat Intake

Cat intake should be minimized until the shelter can be thoroughly cleaned and all exposed/at risk cats are evaluated and transferred to quarantine or out of the shelter. If kittens are out in foster care, return to the shelter should be discouraged if possible. Ideally, they should be adopted through off-site events or directly out of the foster home. If returned to the shelter, kittens should be vaccinated at least a week prior to return. If cat intake must be continued, designate one clean area of the shelter for this purpose.
