If I adopt a Rescue Train cat, I can make a donation of at least $125 to help rescue and care for other abandoned animals. I understand that my adoption donation is often just a fraction of the cost that The Rescue Train has spent on boarding, spaying and neutering, vaccines, microchips, FeLV and FIV testing, and medical costs. I understand that my donation is a gift freely given, not a purchase price for a cat. No goods or services have been or will be provided in exchange for the donation. I understand that any donation made is not refundable.  
I agree that the above information is honest and true. I agree that The Rescue Train may verify this information. I understand that submitting an application does not mean I am approved to adopt a cat from The Rescue Train. I understand that The Rescue Train has the right to refuse adoption to any applicant for any reason and is not obligated to provide a reason or explanation for refusing adoption to an applicant.  
Thank you for your interest in this animal. You'll automatically receive a copy of this application as your confirmation.
