Annabelle's Info...

Annabelle's Story...
Annabelle, 1 ½ years old, female cat.

Annabelle is a very sweet female cat. How did Annabelle come to PETSMART? One night Annabelle’s previous owner surrendered his cat to PETSMART. He came inside and dropped her off with commenting” that if you do not take her, then I will leave her outside.” Luckily, for Annabelle she enjoys playing with the other cats. He even did not ever bring her to the vet. This friendly feline gets along with other cats and dogs. When you sit down, Annabelle will jump in your lap.
$175.00 Donation includes medical costs such as spay, vaccination, and medical care.

FELV/FIV(-), rabies, distemper shots.

Completion of an application does not mean that you are approved.

You MUST have a veterinarian reference to adopt. When we check a veterinarian reference on your current or past pets, we are looking for a vaccine history, spay/neuter and if you have followed through with veterinarian recommendations for your pet(s). All of your pets must be up to date on vaccines and spayed or neutered. For adoption of DOGS you must own your own home. You MUST be at least 21 years of age to adopt. All pets have an adoption fee to help cover the vet expenses.

All our animals are spayed or neutered, have been examined by a veterinarian, and are up to date with vaccinations. You will also meet with Hanna for an interview at PETSMART located at 475 Bank Street, Waterbury, CT 06708.
Sometimes Rose Hope Animal Refuge requires a home visit. If a home visit is required, you must be able to consent for a visit in order to adopt a pet.

We choose the home that best suits the pet. We reserve the right to refuse an adoption. Some of our animals have been through some kind of trauma in their short lives. Our animals can not speak for themselves, so as their guardians we speak for them.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Annabelle, a Waterbury Domestic Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Waterbury, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Waterbury.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Waterbury already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Waterbury breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Waterbury paves the way for another one to be saved.
