By submitting this form , I attest that the answers I have given in this document are true and factual to the best of my knowledge and that I have not misrepresented myself in any way.

I understand that the cat/kitten I am adopting has been rescued. While in the OCARCís care, the cat/kitten has received appropriate medical care as needed. There is however a chance that my new kitten could have been exposed to a virus while on its way to being rescued and adopted. I agree to be financially responsible for veterinary costs, if any, associated with continuing care. I understand I am assuming any and all risks associated with this adoption. I further understand that if the cat/kitten harms, injures or makes ill any person or animal, or damages any property, I shall assume all responsibility for such, and that the OCARC shall not be held in any way responsible.

I understand that the OCARC reserves the right to decline my application for adoption for any reason.
