Stripey Love:

I am a 'Mackerel brown tabby tux' with a pink nose w/ an orange & black dot in the center, green-yellow eyes, and a gentle, more relaxed personality.

I was found in the back yard with my littermates and mother. After weaning, we came inside to foster and socialize.
I am...
*very gentle natured and affectionate
*good about being handled
*very playful--especially with catnip toys and my sister, Bull's Eye Girl
--?kids = unknown, gentle handling
--?dogs = unknown, slow introduction perhaps
*good with other cats-never separated from siblings
home environment = accustomed to semi-quiet, active home w/open windows, alarm clock sounds, blenders, classical music,...

**********Special Needs:*************************
Stripey Love has a serious food allergy and needs to go to a home with owners willing to provide him with
1. a 'duck-meat-only-diet (cheese, yougurt, 1/2 & 1/2, eggs = OK--in moderation, as little treats), and
2. medication for an occasional allergic reaction,should he consume non-duck meat food.
Normally Stripey Love is fine unless he get into food that makes his body react. He constantly attempts to get at meat that makes him sick.

About Nike Animal Rescue Foundation

About Our Rescue Group...

The Nike Animal Rescue Foundation (NARF) is a non-profit, all volunteer organization founded in 1985 in San Jose, California. NARF is dedicated to protecting dogs and cats. We strive to eliminate animal overpopulation through spay and neuter programs and public education. Our volunteers rescue and shelter cats and dogs in need. We provide medical care and locate quality, permanent homes for these animals. We are also a NO KILL shelter. The animals are fostered in our volunteer’s home; allowing us to give adopters a more complete background about their personality and how they get along with other animals, children, etc.

Our Adoption Process...

First, decide on the kind of dog or cat you want (large, small, active, older, puppy, kitten, long hair, short hair, etc.) and find a few pets that fit your criteria on our web site.

Then either contact the foster home directly or visit us at our weekly pet fairs.

Next a NARF representative will conduct an interview to make sure that the pet of your choice is a good match.

The donation for dogs ranges from $200 – $300, and $120 for cats. This donation covers the cost of spaying or neutering, vaccinations, and microchipping. In some cases, a training contract may be required for our dogs with an additional deposit.
