  • ID#: 48663
  • Hair: Unknown

Marie is a loving three year old cat who needs a new home because her dad is leaving the country. It sure would be a plan made in heaven if she and her sister, Gabby, could go to a new forever home together. She loves to nibble treats that are placed in front of her. If you hear a little hiss from Marie, it is her way of expressing fear. Marie just cannot get enough gentle body massage scratches. She is more content when someone is sitting versus standing over her. She and Marie love to chase the laser light! They enjoy all their toys! They lived with a dog who wanted to chase them, so if you have a cat friendly dog at home, it may take awhile for the girls to trust the dog, but they are open minded and may find out they just love dogs. Both Gabby and Marie are indoor-only cats. They efficiently use their litter box. The two sweeties enjoy following their guardian around the house, although shy, they are quite social. Their favorite past time is to be in the same room as the humans. Gabby and Marie are open to trusting new people who will put time into their transition.

The adoption process starts with a completed application which can be sent to you via
Marie, American Shorthair has been shared from Shelter Exchange.

About Second Chance Dogs

About Our Rescue Group...

Second Chance Dogs was founded by a group of 3 determined women who, for years, independently helped "in need" dogs transform their current situations. In July, 2009, they joined forces and started Second Chance Dogs, a non-profit organization in an effort to help more dogs in more ways. Each member brings to the organization their own special gift, and when combined, allows Second Chance Dogs to offer a variety of services to help rehabilitate and find loving homes from these dogs.

Our Adoption Process...

1. Indicate Interest about the dog who is available for adoption
2. Discuss the dog’s biography with people who will often be with the dog
3. Make a list of questions about the dog
4. Evaluate the amount of time you can be with the dog…….he/she is a new family member
5. Fill out the adoption application
6. Send photos of the yard(s) & schedule a home visit
7. After Board approval, the foster family will get in touch with you ; scheduling a “meet and greet”
8. One of more Board members will be present at the “meet and greet”
9. A protocol for the “meet and greet” is sent to the people considering adoption.
10. SCD consults may take place throughout the application process. Topics such as dog nutrition; medical needs; training; getting along with other pets in the home may need to be discussed
11. When the “meet and greet” goes 100% well, depending on circumstances, the dog may go home with the new family
12. After the majority of “meet and greets”, the potential adopting family and SCD will review how things went and discuss options (people and/or dog training)
