Facts about Hercules

  • ID#: 8175259
  • Hair: Short
Handsome DSH Black Male FIV+

Hercules is a big, handsome 3 & 1/2 year old short-haired black with a tiny white neck pendant neutered male.  He is very sweet and loves pets and attention, but does not care to be picked up or held.  He was rescued as a  stray who'd been fending for himself on the streets for too long which show in his scars.  He gets along well with his docile FIV+ roommates.  He is FIV+ which is the Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. It is only contagious to other cats.  It means his immune system is a little weaker than average, but most cats with FIV live long healthy lives if they are in a safe, indoor only, calm environment . They have been adopted with other FIV+ cats and many people have adopted FIV+ cats who have non-FIV cats without their non-FIV cats contracting it.  Please discuss with your Veterinarian to help you decide.  There is a vaccination for FIV that you can discuss with you Veterinarian as well.We don't know about dogs, but he might be O.K. with cat-friendly dogs.  He should not be around young children, but should be O.K. with cat-friendly older children who will not try to pick him up.   Come meet this sweet big boy.

About Angels With Paws

About Our Shelter...

We believe ALL animals have the right to life.
Angels with Paws 501c3 charity runs a mostly cage-free, Limited Intake Rescue Shelter that since opening in 2004 has provided over 9,500 homeless, unwanted, abused, neglected and abandoned cats, kittens (and some dogs through foster care) with rescue, Veterinary and other care, rehab and a place to live until they are adopted. Many of them are injured, ill, disabled, and older and would be turned away or put down by other shelters. For these animals Angels with Paws is their last hope. This is amazing work considering we operate out of a converted Fast Food building, have very limited resources, few volunteers, no promotion, and no on-site Veterinarian. We educate the public on responsible pet ownership, and offer advice in caring for pets with the hope that they can be kept in their own homes instead of being relinquished to a shelter, the need to Spay/Neuter and the cruelty of declawing.

Angels with Paws does not receive any Government, Corporate or any regular funding. We do not have an on-site Veterinarian, and have to pay for our Veterinary Care and Supplies. Nearly all of our funding comes from private donations.

Our dream is to see the day when no adoptable animal will be euthanized.
