Small Animals in the Home
I/We understand the following:
- Siberian Huskies have a VERY high prey drive.
- Siberian Huskies may chase, hunt, and even kill cats, birds, squirrels, rabbits, lizards, and even small toy breed dogs.
- MOST Siberian Huskies are NOT cat friendly.
- Adopt A Husky will NOT place a Siberian in a home with a cat, UNLESS the dog has tested to be cat friendly OR the adopters have a plan in place to keep the cat and the Siberian separate AT ALL TIMES.
- Adopt A Husky will not place a dog under the age of one year in a home with a cat. While you might think that placing a puppy with a cat will make the puppy "learn" to tolerate the cat, there is no guarantee that the puppy will not grow up to be aggressive toward the cat.
- Adopt A Husky will OCCASIONALLY rescue a Siberian that is cat friendly, but there may be a significant wait after the application and approval process before one that will be a good fit for your home becomes available. This wait could be several months or more.
- Adopt A Husky cannot guarantee that a rescued dog who tests to be cat friendly will stay cat friendly. The dog and cat must ALWAYS BE SUPERVISED, no matter what. When supervision is not possible, the animals should be CONFINED IN SEPARATE AREAS.
