Research Behind Fee-Waived

Read about exciting research that shows a fee-waived program significantly increases adult cat adoptions – and that fee-waived adopters value their pets just as much those who pay shelter fees.

Edmonton Humane Society found that adopters of fee-waived cats and non-fee-waived cats behave in similar ways, including providing comparable veterinary care and keeping cats in their homes.

Wisconsin Humane Society found during seminal research conducted in 2006 that an adopter's attachment to a fee-waived cat was not decreased.

Six fee-waived programs yielded summaries and data that include a 27% increase in adult cat adoptions.
