Experienced smuggler

Senior cats often languish in shelters, passed over for cute kittens and playful young cats. But age is really just a number – mature cats bring along some wonderful qualities. Meet Maru, our handsome older gentleman, who has been in our care for over a year. 
 
Left to die at a local shelter due to his arthritis and tumors, Maru had no chance for adoption. SVPP swooped in, got him the medical attention he needed, and he became a member of our Golden Paws Program. 
 
This dapper gentleman comes with 11 years of snuggle experience and a sensitive soul. While Maru’s joints may have arthritis and he can’t jump as gracefully as he used to, he's definitely still up for love and lap time.
 
Maru enjoys quiet and gentle attention – and while he can coexist with other cats, he'd probably be happiest as your one-and-only. A heated bed, yummy food, and a safe, loving haven to call home is all Maru needs to thrive. 
 
While Maru is waiting to find where he'll spend his golden years, we ask you to remember that older pets can be exceptionally affectionate and loyal and they all deserve a chance at life!

Typically, after you meet the rescue pet, we will follow up with you to see how the meeting went. If a match is made, we can finalize the adoption quickly. Please note that we may require a home check as part of the application process. Thank you for your interest in our rescue pets!

Adoption fees are between $100 - $400 depending on animal, breed, age.
