Meow! My name is Jazzy
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Black & White Or Tuxedo||Age:||Adult|
I am already spayed, up to date with shots, and good with cats.
Jazzy is a sassy little girl who is confident, nosy, curious, and LOVES to run, play and wrestle with any cat confident enough to take her on! She was out of time in a shelter with an 82% kill rate when the local humane society spayed her to help her adoption prospects. However, she proved quite cranky at Petsmart and kept scratching anyone who passed her cage. We believe she had had enough of being caged and controlled 24-7, so at first she was VERY scratchy and defensive, like she expected us to take her away from her toys and new freedom and put her in a cage. Now she has calmed down though she's still full of herself and very headstrong. She and her friend Velvet race around and wrestle; she LOVES all toys and the laser pointer and is VERY athletic and strong. She's a beautiful girl but very much a tomboy and diva. She has perfect litterbox habits (large uncovered with scoopable litter). Jazzy was taken off availability for several years, because she became best friends with a little foster who was in failing health, who eventually passed away. We have given her time to adjust and she is just fine now, but she deserves to soar away to find a new home where she can be the star, instead of a "forever foster," always in the waiting crowd.
Rescue Group Info...
Cat Rescue, Inc., saves cats slated for euthanasia at overloaded shelters. No cat is adopted out prior to spay or neuter. The home organization is based in Chesapeake, managing the pet center in the Petsmart at Greenbrier Mall, Chesapeake. Adoptions number approximately 500 per year. We are a 501(c)(3)nonprofit, ALL VOLUNTEER, home foster based, no-kill organization. All donations and contracts paid are submitted to the director of Cat Rescue, Inc., in Chesapeake, Va., and are applied to food and medical needs of cats and kittens under the organization's care. The organization is committed to accepting any cat adopted from us if the owner for any reason has to give up the cat, for the rest of the cat's life; in effect, we provide a "life insurance" policy for these cats so that they never have to end up on "death row" in a shelter again.

CRI Petersburg manages the pet center at the Colonial Heights Petsmart. We respond to the store immediately for adoption interest, and we're also on station every Saturday, noon to 7 p.m. Please call to confirm and to ensure the cat you want to see will be at the store that day, since we don't bring all the cats. We normally have cats no younger than six months old. All are spayed/neutered and have distemper and rabies shots, are wormed and tested for feline AIDS and leukemia. As a home-based foster organization, the cats are treated as companion pets. All food and medical bills are paid by the foster family without reimbursement, so adopters are assured that their adoption fees go toward the care and well-being of cats in the organization, many who have staggering medical bills, or who are unadoptable and must be cared for throughout their lifetime by the organization. In general, the basic cost of vetting a normal cat without medical issues is $200-300, so the $75 adoption fee is far below what has been invested in each cat.
Our contract requires: No declawing (toe amputation) and indoors only. You'll complete an adoption contract and questionnaire, and a Petsmart adoption form. The adoption process takes less than an hour and your new pet can go home with you same day. Cost of adoption: $75, cash only, completely tax deductible and a receipt will be supplied. If a pair are adopted, or a senior cat, a discount price will be available.
We are the Petersburg branch of Cat Rescue, Inc., which is based in Chesapeake, Va., serving the Petersburg-Fort Lee area. WE CAN ACCEPT NO CATS FROM THE GENERAL PUBLIC, only from shelters or as arranged by the director.
