Ricky & Toby's Info...

Ricky & Toby's Story...
Ricky (left) and Toby are two buddies looking for a home. Ricky is roughly 2 1/2 and Toby is roughly 5 years old. These two kitties came to Animal Protectors within two weeks of each other and both tested positive for FIV. They are currently hanging out together in a foster home and ,as you can see, have become good pals. They are two of the four cats we recently acquired that are FIV+. Adopting a pair like Ricky and Toby would make their world complete. Adopt one and the other's adoption fee will be waived.

Our vet has told us that cats that have FIV can have the same lifespan as any other cat as long as he is kept inside, away from sick cats and has a low stress home. These cats do not require any special medical care or medicines for the FIV and it can only be transmitted to other cats through mating or deep bite wounds. It cannot be transmitted to humans or any other type of animals.

If you would like to consider giving this special team a good home, please call the shelter to set up an appointment to meet them. 724-339-7388. They're waiting!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ricky & Toby, a New Kensington Domestic Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in New Kensington, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in New Kensington.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in New Kensington already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a New Kensington breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in New Kensington paves the way for another one to be saved.
