Facts about Tonya FIV+

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: RH/CH
  • Hair: Short
What a sweet purr-box! Tonya is gentle, sweet, kind and happy, though who knows why her owner turned her over to a high - kill rural NC shelter. The shelter staff loved her so much they would not give up on saving her, and finally several rescue agencies banded together and she was transported to Cat Rescue. Tonya tested positive for the feline FIV virus or feline AIDS, which no longer means a death sentence now that more is known about it. There's no medicine, just the normal quality food and vet visits that every pet should have. With an abundance of caution, we want Tonya to be an only kitty, and with her sweet, calm nature, she'd be perfect for an older person who wants a loyal, loving companion.

About Our Rescue Group...

Cat Rescue, Inc., which was started in 1997, saves cats slated for euthanasia at overloaded shelters. No cat is adopted out prior to spay or neuter. The home organization is based in Chesapeake, managing the pet center in the Petsmart at Greenbrier Mall, Chesapeake. Adoptions number approximately 300 per year. We are a 501(c)(3)nonprofit, ALL VOLUNTEER, home foster based, no-kill organization. All donations and contracts paid are submitted to the director of Cat Rescue, Inc., in Chesapeake, Va., and are applied to food and medical needs of cats and kittens under the organization's care. The organization is committed to accepting any cat adopted from us if the owner for any reason has to give up the cat, for the rest of the cat's life; in effect, we provide a "life insurance" policy for these cats so that they never have to end up on "death row" in a shelter again.

Come Meet Our Pets...

CRI manages the pet center at the Greenbrier Petsmart, Chesapeake. We respond to the store immediately for adoption. All cats are spayed/neutered and have distemper and rabies shots, are wormed and tested for feline AIDS and leukemia. As a home-based foster organization, the cats are treated as companion pets. All food and medical bills are paid by the foster family without reimbursement, so adopters are assured that their adoption fees go toward the care and well-being of cats in the organization, many who have staggering medical bills, or who are unadoptable and must be cared for throughout their lifetime by the organization. In general, the basic cost of vetting a normal cat without medical issues is $200-300, so the $85 adoption fee is far below what has been invested in each cat.

Our Adoption Process...

Our contract requires: No declawing (toe amputation) and indoors only. You'll complete an adoption contract and questionnaire, and a Petsmart adoption form. The adoption process takes less than an hour and your new pet can go home with you same day. Cost of adoption: $85, cash only. If a pair are adopted, or a senior cat, a discount price will be available.
