FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

QUESTIONS ABOUT THE PROCESS

 

CAN I SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT?

We are one of the few rescues in New England that are not by appointment. We are a completely volunteer-run rescue, and our volunteers give up their Saturdays so that our cats can find forever homes. However, we realize this is not ideal for everyone and are happy to recommend rescues who are by appointment should that better suit you.

ARE YOU ONLY OPEN ON SATURDAYS TO MEET THE CATS?

Yes, our meet and greets are conducted on Saturday, please check our website prior to coming as some Saturdays we are closed.  We do have by appointment for auction winners!

WHAT IF I CAN'T MAKE IT ON SATURDAYS?

Unfortunately, we cannot open the shelter to the public on any other day, except for unique circumstances such as our  Meet-and-Greet Auction. Our suggestion is to make an appointment with another local rescue.

CAN I BRING MY KIDS?

Due to our COVID-19 policies, we cannot allow children under 18 into the rescue at this time. Currently, the only exception to this is our  Meet-and-Greet Auctions, in which case the entire winning family is welcome.

HOW MANY PEOPLE IN MY FAMILY CAN COME TO THE RESCUE?

We ask that you limit your party to two per family. Our COVID-19 policies place limits on the number of people that can safely occupy the shelter at one time. The more people in your party, the longer the wait (for you, and everyone else).

WHEN SHOULD I GET IN LINE?

We typically open at 11am, you can get in line at any time you would like.

First come, first serve. We may open later please read the information on the website above

CAN I ADOPT FROM CAT TALES IF I LIVE OUT OF STATE?

Yes

DO I NEED TO BE PRESENT TO MEET THE CAT I WANT TO ADOPT?

Yes

DO YOU DELIVER?

No

 

CAN I BRING HOME MY CAT ON THE SAME DAY?

 

Only some of our cats are eligible for same-day adoption. If the cat you choose is not available for same-day adoption, we will schedule a day and time for you to pick up your cat. You must have previously submitted an application to our email for us to process prior to Saturday

DO I NEED TO SUBMIT AN APPLICATION PRIOR TO ARRIVING?

While not required, we highly recommended that you fill out an application with your information (you can leave the cat information blank) and bring a printed copy with you to the shelter. If you decide to adopt a cat but do not have a pre-filled application, this slows down the process and adds to the wait time for others. 

IF I SUBMIT MY APPLICATION DOES THAT PLACE A CAT ON HOLD FOR ME?

Unfortunately, no. We are a first-come, first-serve shelter. 

WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU RUN OUT OF KITTENS?

We receive kittens and cats in every week. It is a rare occasion to have no adoptable kittens. If it does happen, however, we will inform those remaining in line, and will stay open for anyone in line who is interested in meeting our adult cats. We have never run out of adoptable cats.

WHY ISN'T ANYONE ANSWERING MY CALL/TEXT/EMAIL ON SATURDAYS?

As is evident by our wait times, we are extremely busy inside the shelter on Saturdays and are unable to answer any calls, texts or emails until after we close to the public. Please review this list of FAQs to see if your question is addressed.

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?

We are located at 920 Lafayette Rd, Unit 201, Seabrook NH.

We share a building with Linda's breakfast; we are directly to the right of them if looking at the building from the parking lot. Please note that we do not have a sign above our unit, but upon entering the parking lot you will see our cats in the windows!

WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?

We accept CC, DC, check, PayPal, Venmo and cash.

QUESTIONS ABOUT THE CATS

WHAT ARE YOUR ADOPTION FEES?

Our fees are $250 for kittens, and $165 for adults.

WHAT DOES THE ADOPTION FEE COVER?

All our cats are fixed, up-to-date on vaccinations, tested for FIV/FELV, dewormed, microchipped

and issued a health certificate by a licensed veterinarian.

WHAT IF I AM LOOKING FOR A SPECIFIC COLOR, SEX OR COAT LENGTH?

You can email us at info@cattalesnh.org on Friday afternoons with inquiries on specific cats, or specific cat characteristics. By this time, we typically know who will be available the following day. This does not, however, place a hold on the cat for you.
