Free Veterinary Exam Certificate

Keeping your cat healthy is a big part of sharing your life with a pet. If you don’t have a veterinarian already, start building a relationship with a vet or clinic now using your free exam certificate from CAT. 

A Free Veterinary Exam Certificate* is supplied to adopters at the time of adoption. Your certificate cannot be replaced or transferred to other pets or people. See the map for a list of Portland area clinic locations that have agreed to accept this certificate.

*You are responsible for selecting a clinic, making the appointment, and for any fees incurred for products, services, and/or treatments over and above the initial complimentary exam fee. Please reference the certificate when you make your appointment and be sure to take the certificate with you to the appointment. CAT is not responsible for any fees incurred as a result of the examination.
