Meet Dante- a young fella who truly embodies the feline spirit of perseverance!

Dante came to us unable to use his hind legs at 10 months of age, after being re-surrendered to a high-kill shelter in NYC (he was adopted from same facility when he was 3 months old).

Puzzled yet determined, his foster mom and All Sentient Beings enlisted the help of a diligent and highly dedicated veterinarian who discovered that Dante has a nerve disorder that IS treatable. After just 3 days on a common & inexpensive medication, this formerly sullen tuxedo-clad sir transformed into a chirpy, running and climbing kitty who was thrilled to be mobile again.

Dante is still on his medication, which is available for ~$10.00/month from any pharmacy (via prescription from a vet) and we are working towards being able to taper him off of it over time. His longterm prognosis is very good and there is no indication that he should have any serious medical issues moving forward.

Dante, being a refined, young gentleman, loves human attention and will definitely curl up with a warm, willing person- if you like to read, he'd make a & purr-fect partner in your literary endeavors. He is good with other cats and seems genuinely unfazed by gentle dogs of any size (he currently lives with a German Shepherd).

Won't you open your heart and home to this well-dressed one year old, whose shown us all that never giving up really is the way to go? Please consider adopting Dante, a kitty whose never going to give up on life or loving you!

About All Sentient Beings, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a 501 (c)(3) non-profit no-kill animal rescue/adoption organization & information clearinghouse in NYC dedicated to decreasing the number of homeless cats & kittens by rescuing those abandoned or in city "kill" shelters.

We have no formal shelter, instead, our cats reside in our homes until we can find a suitable home for them. We spend a lot of time interacting with our rescues to give them a lot of personalized attention, establish their personality traits, and tend to their health, and physical and emotional well being.

We have a holistic philosophy with a two-pronged mission: a) continuing to participate in the myriad, ongoing rescue and adoption work of all of the similarly involved local groups; and b) raising awareness for humans to be better, more responsible, committed and informed animal care-givers. This includes information on holistic vet care, quality food and inclusion of pet trusts in people's advance directives.
