Cool Cat

Miko, a 1.5 year-old FIV+ male, is the definition of a cool cat!  This calm, laid-back, and loving boy acts as a stress-reliever to everyone he meets.  Miko was rescued when he wandered up to a consignment shop of all places! Like the clothing in the store, Miko is ready for his 2nd chance at a loving home. Miko would be happy to lounge on the couch with you, as he is also a first-class nurturer to humans and cats alike.  When introduced to a newly-rescued and terrified semi-feral kitten, Miko did not hesitate to take the kitten under his wing.  Within 24 hours of meeting Miko, the kitten had completely relaxed and was loving life—Miko to the rescue!  Miko is also a ham, and welcomes love from his human companions.  Don’t those chubby cheeks just call out for kisses?!  Strong and lean, Miko’s markings identify him as part Ocicat. Don’t let Miko’s FIV + status be intimidating. FIV + cats can live long, healthy lives with just a little extra TLC. SNAP is more than happy to give you information on FIV and how to introduce an FIV+ cat to your home. Miko would be a great addition to any home, so please fill out an application to meet the cool cat himself today! Below are a few links to read up on FIV and learn the joys that can come from adding an FIV+ feline to your family!

About SNAP 2 IT

About Our Rescue Group...

SNAP is dedicated to curbing the dog and cat overpopulation problem in Georgia through making spay/neutering services as widely available as possible.

Through the implementation of the county and local TNR programs and by helping to provide wellness services, rescue and adoption programs and education and outreach, we hope to reach our goal of saving lives and money.

We are a Georgia-based 501c3 non-profit organization sustained entirely from grants, donations and the generous and tireless work and support of our many volunteers.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our adoptable pets are kept in private foster homes - we do not have a central shelter location. Please visit us at the Buckhead PetsMart every Saturday between 12-3pm (except for holiday weekends) to meet some of our kittens and cats. The store is located at 3221 Peachtree Road, Atlanta GA 30305. To verify whether we will be at this PetsMart on a specific date, please send an inquiry to adoptions@snap2it.org

We are also located inside the Castlegate PetSmart in the 24/7 adoption center located at 1801 Howell Mill Road, NW, Atlanta 30381. You can visit the kitties any time the store is open, and an adoption volunteer will be available on Saturdays and Sundays from 12-3pm to answer your questions and facilitate the adoption process.

We also have cast/kittens available for adoption at the Duluth PETCO located at 2131 Pleasanthill Road Duluth GA 30096

Our Adoption Process...
