I vaguely mentioned this in another thread, but I am APPALLED by Chicago's SPCA. First of all, upon entering, I noticed that the pets that were already adopted were still in prime real estate, meaning cages at the top where there's higher visiblity. Granted, all of these pets by some far fetched reach of the imagination may have been adopted just an hour since, but it seems like you should give the other kitties a chance for such highly visible space. Secondly, their adoption requirements seemed too strict and unlike anything I'd experienced in California. I have a cat at home, and they wanted his records... I told them I just moved and they are all in a box somewhere back in California (I mean, the airline didn't even require health documentation). They said without those records, I could not adopt another cat. Also, they wanted to talk to my landlord. To be totally frank, my apartment charges a $300 per pet nonrefundable fee. I have paid the $300 for my cat, which I think is insane and excessive considering a cat will not do $300 worth of damage to an already shabby apartment, and I do not want to pay another $300. If they did discover I had another cat, I would just say I had forgotten to let them know and pay the fee (and I doubt they would evict me and go through the trouble of finding another tenant, etc.). Also, there was one kitten I was very interested in. It was placed "on hold" and was supposed to be picked up yesterday at noon. They said they had to keep holding her... no clue why. It seems like these people should've picked up the cat they committed to adopting. Sorry for the long rant. I'm just very sad that I can't get another cat for my little guy to play with, at least not from the SPCA.
