I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, and not good with kids.
Thank you for saving the life of a shelter pet! Specific descriptions of each pet and their LOCATION follow in the paragraph below. To expedite the adoption process, please be certain to read all of the information carefully included in the pet's description. Some of our pets are in FOSTER HOMES, some are in Petsmart in WASHINGTON or MONROEVILLE, and some at the SHELTER. STEP ONE: Please fax your application to the number listed in the pets description, NOT necessarily the fax number on the application and please inquire to the person in the pet's description. Please include all specific questions about the pet in the cover of your fax. This process will ensure that your place is held in the adoption process as we may not be able to answer email inquiries in a timely manner. IF no number is listed in the pets' desription, please fax DOG applications to 724-627.4160 and CAT applications to 610.819.0335. The shelter cannot answer questions about the pet's placed in foster homes and the foster homes will not have much information on the pets at the shelter. We request that you please do not call the shelter on inquiries as we are not staffed to handle volumes of calls.
THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING ONLY. PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE SHELTER. THIS CAT IS IN FOSTER CARE AND BEING ADOPTED INDEPENDENTLY. PLEASE EMAIL firstname.lastname@example.org
3/31/07 Meet Cassie at Petsmart in Monroeville 3-31- 4/14, then, if she is not adopted, she will go back into foster care. For information email her foster mom at email@example.com. UPDATE: Cassie is ready for adoption! She's been in foster care for some time and is ready for her fur-ever home. She would do well in a home by herself or with other dogs and cats, but probably not with children. She's pretty independent, not a needy kitty and she's content just to be around you. She does not require a lot of attention but she enjoys it if it is offered. She is VERY vocal but she is all talk and her noises don't mean anything, but she does need an experienced cat person as these noises can be intimidating if you don't know her. She likes to be held like a baby and likes to perch on the couch or chair above you. She might turn into a lap cat, but isn't one at her foster mom's house because the dog likes to play chase and Cassie is always aware of this. She will lay on the bed and sleep with you though. This is Cassie, a six-month-old female. She is a tabby-calico mix. Cassie is affectionate and never stops purring. She came to a family in Washington looking for help to find her a warm home with people to love. Perfect cat! UPDATE: 3-27-05 She is in foster care now and doing very well. She adores people and we are working on her with dogs and cats. Right now she is better with dogs than cats, but not crazy about either. Hopefully we will change that. She is still kind of jumpy so we would not recommend her for children under 10. She would do best is a quiet adult home. She tends to get very wound up when you pet her, falling all over the place and sometimes, similar to a puppy, nipping in her excitement. When you are holding her she will grab your hand and hold it in her paws, licking you the whole time. She is extremely affectionate!! She does not like to be alone, and nips at her foster mom's feet when she tries to leave the room, but she is very careful never to bear down or cause pain. She's very smart, already uses a scratching post religiously and is trying to learn how to fetch (her idea). She's going to make someone a great companion!
Often these pets are stray and we know very little about them. If you have specific questions about an animal, please email us and we will do our best to find the answers for you. Please use both the name and the reference number so we can be certain that we get you the answers about the correct pet.
Because there is often great demand for certain cats, we encourage you to fax your Fully completed application in right away.
Are you interested in adopting? Instructions can be found on our home page: http://www.petfinder.org/shelters/PA252.html
Please fill out an application and fax it into the shelter. We will contact you for an interview once your references have been checked. Thanks so much for adopting a shelter pet!!!
If you adopt this cat, please make sure to activate your free month of shelter care pet insurance through Petfinder!!
We love our rescues and we take great care in finding the right pet for your home and the right home for our pets. Our adoption process may take several BUSINESS days as we must verify several EXTREMELY IMPORTANT bits of information: vet references , home ownership or landlord's permission to have pets, employment, and other personal references. Once these are verified we will contact you for a phone interview with the foster parent (if possible) or the shelter director. We understand this may be a little intrusive but unfortunately it is necessary as we see many cases of abuse and neglect. We hope you will understand that this process means we really care about our pets and aren't looking to just place them in any home and that our process is meant only to ensure that the pets will have a stable environment with a family that can meet standards of care. Most of them have come from homes that did not, so we cannot risk putting them into the wrong home. We also hope you will understand that we may not approve you for the pet you applied for, but might recommend a better fit for your home and lifestyle. For example, if you have young children we may not recommend herding dogs or kittens. Or if you are a senior citizen, we may recommend an adult dog or cat that will be less likely to get underfoot. There are many factors to be considered in finding the right pet and we do our best to cover all of them. Please be certain to completely fill out the application as incomplete applications may be delayed or not processed. All vet information is pertinent, so please include names and phones numbers and give them a call in advance to allow them to speak with us. Thank you for your patience and we will try to process your application as soon as possible. We want our pets in the new fur-ever homes ASAP! And again, we thank you for saving the life of a shelter pet!!
