Update: In 2015 the ASPCA published research on a modified Feline-ality assessment which accommodates assessment as early as 18 hours post-intake. The research found that the modified assessment is predictive of behavior of cats post-adoption. Implement the modified assessment using the training manual, new assessment and score sheet.
The ASPCA's Meet Your Match® Feline-ality™ has been proven to save lives at shelters all across the country. The research-based adoptions program utilizes two important tools: You conduct the Feline-ality Assessment, which reliably predicts how an individual cat is likely to behave in her new home, and your adopters take the Cat Adopter Survey, which identifies the aspects of the adopter's preferences and expectations.
We've compiled resources to help get you started with Feline-ality – or enrich your current program.
