Facts about Pump (FELV+)

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
AZUSA: FELV+ Sweet Black Cat Named "Pump" is looking for a home. A foster/rescuer of street cats picked him up eating out of a trash can at (where else?) a gas station...hence the name Pump! He was starving &needed some vet TLC. Pump tested FELV+, had to have all but 5 teeth pulled and was lucky to be rescued. You'd never know he's missing teeth b/c he eats like a champ & never misses a meal. Pump has what's called "cauliflower ear" from ear mites that he was infected with upon his rescue. So his left ear is somewhat "shriveled" up from the damage.

The foster/rescuer has multiple fosters coming in & out of her home, so she is trying to find a new home for Pump where he can be out of a large dog crate and get the love & attention he needs. He will be a cat who will be an awesome companion cat. He loves attention, loves to tell you about his day, loves to be near you, loves to play with toys, loves to eat and he loves all the fosters but he isn't allowed near them. Pump would be great with others cats who also have FELV+and he is used to small dogs (yorkies).

She absolutely couldn't leave him on the streets, sick & starving. He's a talker, very smart, very thankful to be rescued and he loves to rub up and down his crate's sides asking for pets. Pump is now really healthy, rehabilitated to the best of his ability and up-to-date on shots plus he's microchipped. Unfortunately, he's the last to get attention b/c she's caring for the others and waits to touch him last with gloves so as not to spread anything. He has so much love to give....won't you consider taking Pump into your home? Let's rescue him ALL THE WAY! You will not be sorry....

The TNR Project is a volunteer operated group who practice TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) in the San Gabriel Valley. Each person who traps is independent and they are using their own money, time and gas to save the homeless cats & kittens in our local communities.

The TNR Project is always adding volunteers who want to learn to TNR in their neighborhoods and help others control the feral, stray & homeless cat populations. TNR has been proven to be the ONLY effective method to controlling the ever-mounting cat populations. We have saved 1000+ lives in 2015 alone!

If you would like more information on TNR or learn how you can help your community, please visit: and fill out a contact us form. Save a stray, save a life!


About The TNR Project

About Our Rescue Group...

The TNR Project believes in TNR which stands for Trap-Neuter-Return. We have volunteers who help neighborhoods learn how to trap safely, humanely & effectively to stem community cat growth & overpopulation. TNR has been proven to effectively control the numbers of unwanted kitties on the streets and keep cats out of the shelters.

Did You Know? Feral cats are almost 100% of the time euthanized immediately when entering a doesn't matter if they're kittens or cats. Only 2 out of 10 cats usually make it out of the shelters alive, which means 80% of cats entering shelters are also euthanized. TNR curbs these numbers before kittens are born creating a win/win for the cats, neighborhoods, rescuers and shelters.

Did You Know: Cats can be written off your taxes as natural pest control for your home or office? Don't use pesticides!

The TNR Project, as well as performing TNR weekly, pulls cats & kittens from the streets who can be saved & adopted. We believe these cats & kittens deserve a loving, forever home. Most of them have been discarded, abandoned and/or thrown away like a piece of trash!

We get into the trenches with these cats & kittens, rescue them, socialize them and give them a second chance at life. We perform true miracles from ground zero.
