 Hey remember us? It's Roscoe and Myra and we are still looking for our purrfect forever home, we are now 16 1/2 months old. Our foster parents say we are perfect and would love for us to stay but we are isolated from the other cats in the home and deserve a home of our very own where we can run and play freely. When we were about 6 weeks old we was rescued from a neighboring animal control that had been bombarded with kitties that were brought in. It was a very sad day for our foster parents when we tested positive for feline leukemia virus (Felv). You would never know it though because we are two of the happiest kitties you will ever meet and can live a full normal life. We have to be kept indoors in a cat free home or with other Felv cats. If a problem occurs we will need vetted sooner than later and we are on a daily vitamin supplement. Feline leukemia is a disease that only affects cats. It can not be transmitted to people, dogs or other animals. Felv is passed from one cat to another through saliva, blood and to some extent, urine and feces. This virus does not live long outside of the cats body, probably just a few hours. Grooming and fighting seem to be the most common ways for infection to spread. Kittens contract the disease in the uterus or through an infected mothers milk as Roscoe and Myra were. Now let's get back to talking about the good stuff. We are the sweetest most loving kitties you will ever meet. We get along wonderfully with dogs and our best friend is our foster brother, a 70# lab mix. We love to play with toys and our scratch tree and are litter box trained. Roscoe is a very handsome gray and white young man and his sister Myra is a beautiful calico. They have been neutered and spayed, flea treated, dewormed and are up to date on vaccinations. If you would like more information, would like to meet them, or would like to adopt them and make them a permanent member of your family email adoptionisforever@pethelpersinc.org for an adoption application. We are fostered in West Milford WV and our adoption fee is $50 each. We are a bonded pair and need to be adopted together.

Pet Helpers is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit foster based volunteer rescue located in Fairmont, WV.  We do adopt out of state to approved applicants, if you are willing to drive to WV to pick up your pet.  We do not fly or use transport companies.  Our adoption fee is $150.00 for mixed breed puppies and adult dogs, $225.00 for full blooded puppies and adult dogs and $50.00 for cats and kittens.  Regardless if the animal is a mixed breed or full blooded they are spayed/neutered prior to adoption IF they are old enough.  If they are too young at the time of adoption, then it is your financial responsibility to spay/neuter the pet by the age of 6 months and you must provide proof for our files that it has been done.  All of our pets are checked by a vet, given the shots appropriate for their age and any other treatment deemed necessary by the vet.  All of our pets are adopted as indoor pets and are not be outdoors tied to a box 24/7.  The pet you are adopting has been living in a home with a foster family.  You are expected to take possession of the pet you are applying for within a few days of application approval.  This will enable us to accept another pet into that home.  Because we are a rescue, and believe that spaying and neutering is crucial in stopping the reproduction of unwanted puppies/kittens and massive amounts of animals dying daily in shelters across the country, we expect any animal already in your home to be spayed/neutered. If for any reason you are unable to keep the pet you have adopted you are required to return them to Pet Helpers, Inc.  They are not to be sold or given away.

About Pet Helpers, Inc

About Our Rescue Group...

We were formed in September of 2008. We provide much needed support to pet owners, animal caregivers and other rescues. We also work to educate pet owners on the importance of spaying and neutering their pets. We place homeless animals from within our organization as well as other Rescue Organizations.

We do not have a shelter or facility. All of our pets are kept in foster homes until adopted. We feel that this better prepares the pet to live with the family who adopts them. We have placed over 1,000 pets with adoptive families and continuously look for new foster homes so that we can give more pets a chance at a new life.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a facility. All of our animals are in Foster care and live with families until they are adopted. We can arrange a visit with any of our pets in foster when someone calls or emails us.

You can view our adoptable pets on our website: www.pethelpersinc.org and we also have a link on the Home Page to our Facebook page.

Our Adoption Process...

Email information@pethelpersinc.org for an application. We require a vet reference and 2 personal references. Once the application is approved, we will arrange for the family to meet the pet and decide if they want to finalize the adoption. Our adoption fee is $150 regardless of age/breed. Our contract requires that the pet be kept as an indoor pet and part of the family. If the pet is old enough, it will be spayed/neutered prior to adoption. Young puppies are required to be spayed/neutered by the age of 6 months, which is not included in the adoption fee. You are required to send a spay/neuter certificate to Pet Helpers. If you can no longer provide a home for the pet, you are required to return the pet to Pet Helpers, Inc.
