Handsome Young DMH Black & White Tuxedo Male

Hello!  My name is Tarriful I'm named after a Star Wars Wookie.  I am a very handsome 1 year old DMH black & white Tuxedo neutered male.  I am listed as Special Needs because I am very shy and it takes a while to gain my trust.  Once I trust you I can be sweet and playful, but I don't want to be petted yet or handled.  I would love a playmate (human and/or other animal).  I get along great with Crybaby, a very large DSH Tuxedo and Boxer, another long-haired Tuxedo in my room.  Two cats I used to live on the streets with, Tootie & Enya are also at the shelter and I would get along with them as well.  We almost look like we are related, but we are not.  I rescued from a trailer park where someone was trapping cats and having them put down.  I need a calm, quiet home where I can take my time learning to trust humans and come out of my shell.  I  don't know about dogs, but I'm young enough that I might be able to adjust to a calm, cat-friendly dog with proper introduction techniques.  I should not be around young children, but should be O.K. with older, calm, cat-friendly older children who will play with me, but not frighten me.   Come meet me to see if you have the patient, calm, lasting home I need.

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.
