Facts about River

  • Breed: Calico
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 59447
  • Hair: Unknown

River came to us after her owner passed away. She was taken to a shelter in UT and she isolated herself in grief and refused to interact with anybody. Her owner had been a friend of the founder of CLCRR and his brother contacted us and asked if she could come to us. Upon her arrival, she immediately bolted from her crate and hid! WIth patience and lots of loving space, River became quite playful, sweet, and talkative! She is not a cuddler, she much prefers her "bubble" is not violated, but with the respect of that space, she grows more and more trusting! River is a joy to have around, she is the cleanest cat we have ever known, her litterbox manners are quite impeccable! River does have a heavy double coat, and she would benefit from frequent grooming once you have established trust with her. Her coat is downy silk though, it is the softest, like chinchilla fur! River is selective in her canine and feline companions, but she will get along if there is room to create some distance during possible conflict. She loves to view the world from above, some sort of high perch is her favorite place to be. She prefers quiet, but does enjoy some action, especially if she can watch it from her perch! She loves sunshine, and would enjoy supervised outdoor access. She is afraid of the outdoors so confined outdoor spaces are safest for her. If you can give River that purrfect home, please visit our website, to find the guardianship application and email it to us!

About Caring-Learning-Connecting Rescue and Rehabilitation

About Our Rescue Group...

CLC RR advocates for retaining existing homes through programs that address behavioral issues, and as available we offer access to a food bank or financial assistance for routine and emergency veterinary care or referral to other agencies providing low cost spay/neuter and vaccinations. We also provide options for homeless pets of the region surrounding Rawlins, WY- focusing on the rural areas that do not have shelters, yet often have stray animals. We partner with other agencies to provide more exposure for all of the adoptable animals in the region.

The founder of CLC RR is a certified pet dog trainer and a graduate of the Animal Behavior College. She is a member of the APDT, and is currently working on accreditation with the Certification Council of Professional Dog Trainers as an applied animal behaviorist.

In the practical shelter work required as part of her training, she noticed that there were limited options for animals throughout Carbon County and the vast rural regions of WY. She also noticed that often shelters and rescue agencies struggle with providing the animals proper engagement because of limited staffing and resources, which can create an increase in stress and behavioral issues that would be non-existant or easily resolved with a different environment. It is a goal to provide these other agencies with programs that are manageable for the limitations faced by such organizations, in order to improve the adoptability of their pets and retention in the adoptive homes.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Because CLC RR does not yet have a facility, we rely on foster homes or boarding facilities to help us provide immediate and long term shelter for the animals. If you see an animal you wish to meet, please submit an application, found on our webpage, and we will contact you to make arrangements to meet the animal. We encourage these meetings to include all family members, including other pets!

Our Adoption Process...

The guardianship application must be submitted and reviewed by our application committee. In most circumstances (especially out of town/state adoptions) we require a home visit. Depending on the animal's circumstances we may also require that the adopter pre-register with an approved behaviorist or trainer in their area. Our adoption fees are not set, it depends on the animal and the costs of rehabilitation, but generally between $100-$350 for the small animals like cats, dogs and pocket pets. The adoptive family must complete an adoption contract prior to assuming guardianship of the animal.
