The animal is and remains the property of BFAS for the rest of his/her life.
vii. Change of address or telephone number to be notified to BFAS.
viii. BFAS is not liable for future veterinary fees incurred in the treatment of the animal.
Kittens are to be neutered when old enough (5-7 months) to avoid adding to the problem of unwanted kittens.
