Meet Emma! Emma is a charming and affectionate black and white cat. She can be shy with people initially but warms up very quickly and loves attention—she wants to be petted for as long as you want to pet her and will chirp and meow while she wriggles around so you pet all the best places (the best places are her cheeks, shoulders, and back). She also enjoys looking out windows and would love a wide windowsill to hang out on when she’s not being petted. Emma gets along well with adults and children and tolerates other cats; however, she would prefer to be the only animal in her family. If she is in a stressful environment she may respond by no longer using the litterbox, so it is important that her family takes steps to reduce the stress of introducing her to a new space and especially new animals, if they have any. Emma also sheds quite a lot and would appreciate daily brushing. Emma is an adult cat (about 7 years old), but her whimsical and attractive personality make a wonderful choice for anyone looking for a companion.
At Laramie Animal Welfare Society, the first step to adoption is completing an adoption application on our website www.laramieanimals.org. Once submitted, your application will be reviewed by our adoption team which typically takes up to 7 days. Keep in mind, the kitten/cat you’re interested in when applying may be adopted and no longer available by the time your application is approved. We do not place animals on hold. Pending approval, your application is valid for 6 months. Also pending approval, you will receive contact information, so that you may inquire about the personalities of specific animals. Due to COVID-19, we are highly encouraging foster homes and adopters to speak with one another via phone or video chat to limit in-person contact. If meeting in person at a foster home or at our adoption center, everyone is encouraged to wear masks and socially distance. Adoptions for individual animals will occur by private adoption appointment. Because we are 100 % foster-based, appointments are scheduled pending staff, foster home, and vetting schedules. Should you want to proceed with the adoption, a brief appointment will occur at our adoption center to sign adoption paperwork, receive medical records, and pay the adoption fee.
**Dog/Puppy applications -
Because of the large volume of dog/puppy applications we are receiving these applications may take longer to process, please be patient. We do not do first come first serve but we place the dog/puppy in the best suited home. If you have questions about the Dog/Puppy process please email Dogs@laramieanimals.org**
