Facts about Johnny

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 7880702-C2014035
  • Hair: Unknown
Johnny was a skinny boy when he was found on a street. Well it turned out he was quite old for a street kitty, over 5 years. He was friendly and so severely congested that he was unable to eat. Due to the lingering upper respiratory infection we have not been able to get him neutered. He was rejected several times from surgery since he was deemed high risk due to his age and respiratory issue cause by the infection. He has been on many types of antibiotics since February but nothing helped. We made the decision to go ahead with surgery, and he survived! As veterinarian suspected, two giant size polyps in his soft pallet were discovered and removed. These polyps were causing the chronic respiratory infection. Despite being a bit weak from surgery he is already looking so much better and breathing effortlessly for the first time since we had him. A few weeks after surgery and he is playing like a kitten!!! Now Johnny needs a loving and so much deserved home. Please consider adopting this sweet boy!

About For Animals

About Our Shelter...

Who we are
For Animals, Inc. is a local TNR (trap, neuter, return) group. We are a New York State not for profit Corporation with (501) C-3 status, staffed and operated by people with many years of experience rescuing and taking care of abandoned animals.

What we do
The focus of our operation is a TNR program. For Animals, Inc. rescues stray and abandoned dogs and cats and then transports them to a veterinarian office where they are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed and checked for general health. Afterward, they are fostered in a cage free environment until they are adopted into safe, loving homes.

Why we do it
With tens of thousands of feral cats on the streets of NYC, our focus is on TNR as an effort to humanely reduce the overall population, one colony at a time. By neutering & spaying the feral cats in the colony and adopting out friendly strays and kittens, the colony stabilizes and begins to shrink over time.
