Facts about Rita

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tortoiseshell
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 9677564
  • Hair: Unknown

This cat is part of out shelter outreach program where we go into overcrowded shelters and take some of their pets in hopes of giving them a better chance at being adopted.  

Rita is a beautiful 5 year old tortie who is initially shy with strangers but she responds to a soft approach.  Once she feels secure with you she will show you her true self, a sweet but timid little lady who wants and needs quiet reassurance and affection.  With some gentle coaxing, she will be your friend for life.  We have found Rita to be uncomfortable around other cats so she would do best as an only pet.  If sweet and gentle sounds good to you, come in to meet Rita today.  She’s waiting patiently for her own forever family.



*Per JSAC policy, puppies and kittens under 6 months will not be adopted to families with children under the age of 6 years.



About Jersey Shore Animal Center

About Our Shelter...

Jersey Shore Animal Center is committed to the care of unwanted, abandoned, sick animals and to the adoption of these animals to responsible, loving homes. To that end, veterinary care is provided as needed, medication and inoculations are given and neutering/spaying is done prior to adoption unless the animal's health or age precludes this procedure.

In addition, a compassionate staff tends to providing for each animal's physical and emotional needs, taking care to keep each one sheltered, clean, well-fed and socialized.

Adoption Process

Our friendly, knowledgable team of staff and volunteers would be glad to give you a tour of the shelter and discuss whether one of our furry friends is the right match for your home.

The JSAC has careful policies on the placement of young animals, dominant breed dogs (Rottweilers, Shepherds, Akitas, etc). Due to our lifelong return policy we prefer to adopt our pets locally, so we don't adopt out of state. We prefer homes in the region so that we can be a resource for the animals and their adopters. These policies and procedures are in place to protect everyone involved and are very common when rehoming animals, whether through a shelter or a rescue group.

We do not have "same day" adoptions. Rather, an application for an animal is reviewed to ensure that 1) the home has taken good care of their other animals * 2) The animal is permitted in the home and 3) that it is the right home for the right animal (choosing dog that likes cats if cats already in household, etc..). Typically this process takes 24-48 hours. If a dog application is approved and there are other dogs in the home, we have the two (or more) dogs meet; many times if necessary.
