As part of an effort to encourage owners to seek prompt, regular veterinary care for their cats, the Portland Veterinary Medical Association and the Oregon Humane Society are participating in a three-month pilot study sponsored by the CATalyst Council. The program provides owners with a voucher for a free veterinary exam within 10 days of adoption. The cat's medical record will be sent to a clinic selected by the owner, and the veterinarian's office will follow up with a phone call. A recent study found that 93% of adopted cats and dogs who had a prompt veterinary visit were still in their new home six months after adoption.
