Hi there, my name's Mitzy and I'm a silly girl who loves to give kisses and cuddle. Right now, I have a great foster mommy, but my life was pretty rough before. I don't know why, but when my old family moved away, they threw me out of the moving van into an alley and left me there. I was just a baby, I was barely five months old. It was hard to live on the streets; I had to fight for food and after a few weeks, I was covered in scabs from being beaten up and I was starving. I felt safe around one lady and let her take me into her house. She fed me, took me to the vet, and now I live with her. She tells me I'm a good girl, but I know I'm not her baby. She has two other cats and a big dog. I know they're nice, but they scare me so much. I spent too much time being beaten up on the streets to be friends with another cat or dog; I'm terrified of them. I really need to live in a house without other animals so I can relax and be stress free. When I'm relaxed, I love to cuddle and talk! When you get home from work, I'll run to the door to tell you all about my day, I promise! And when you sleep, I'll curl up with you and, if you like, give you lots of kisses. Do you have a place in your home for a kitty like me, please adopt me! I'm anxious waiting for you my new home!

[Mitzy is 1 year old and about 6.5 lbs.]

Our Adoption Process...

All potential adopters are carefully screened through our adoption process:

- If you're interested in an animal, we'll ask that you fill out a questionnaire, which we will review to ensure you and the dog you are interested in adopting are a good match.

- You will be asked to submit to a "home safety check" to determine the level of safety and adequacy of the area for the dog.

- An adoption fee is required and you must sign the adoption agreement, which ensures that if, for any reason, you are unable to keep the dog, he/she to be returned to Forte Animal Rescue only.

- Finally, we personally deliver your new family member to your home.

- Any additional donation would be greatly appreciated, and this portion will be tax-deductible. The donation goes to pay for all of the other animals in our care, many of which come to us with injuries or medical conditions that require treatment. Forte Animal Rescue survives solely on donations and it is for this reason that the adoption fee is nonnegotiable.

- Forte Animal Rescue reserves the right to cancel the adoption process at any time if the home situation or adoptive family has been misrepresented, if certain information was withheld, or if the dog is determined to be a better match with another family.
