Mildcats at ASU Adoption Application

We are excited that you are considering adopting one of our cats and we appreciate your going through our application process! While we realize that the application process might seem a bit tedious, it is not intended as a personal interrogation. Rather, it is our duty to ensure that our cats are matched to appropriate homes and that our adopters are matched with cats suitable to their lifestyle and personality. If you have any questions about the application process, please—feel free to ask at any time! Thank you.
