Facts about Valentino

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Valentino was rescued from a kill shelter that was about to put him to sleep. He came in from the streets with 2 siblings that died the next day. He was only 19oz. at the age of 5 months when I rescued him Valentine's Day.

He was diagnosed with mega colon and could not hold his bowel. Everything he ate came out as gray mud. They tried dewormers, antibiotics and were giving him enemas every week. His poor lil bottom was so sore with fur missing up his tail and down his legs. I took him to our vet several times for bloodwork, x-ray and ultrasound looking for the problem, but all came out normal so I started to research. He would cry during the enema and it tore my heart out. After 2 times doing that I prayed over him every night asking God for an answer to his problem. The next vet visit, we decided to change his food to prescription diet for digestion. It was like a miracle, that night he went a normal brown color. We knew it had to be a digestion problem and started treating it and he has been responding great and growing. He is now over 5 lbs.

He was malnourished for months undiagnosed by the shelter vet and vet techs. The vet techs did save him from being put down months before, but being undiagnosed the problem got worse. The vet techs could not bring themselves to end his life when he is such a love and purr machine. He even went home with 2 people to care for him.

He was given distemper vaccines for 3 months at the shelter. I had him aids/leuk tested and he is negative. He has had personal one on one care every day to get to this point of growth. He is truly a fighter/survivor with a blessing from God. Now we want to find him the most loving home he can have because he deserves it.

He is now eating regular cat food wet and dry. He is neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped and tested neg. for aids/leuk.

About 4 Paws With A Cause Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Adopting a pet is a satisfying experience knowing that you saved a life. Our cats are in foster homes receiving love and attention not in cages at a shelter. We believe in matching a pet with a family that’s right for them.
Active kittens should have a family that will give them the attention they require and need under careful supervision.
Adult cats that may be a bit timid should have a patient family and quite home that will give them the time they need to come out of their shell.
We love to see seniors adopt senior pets that may have been with us a while or their family member has passed and long for the love and comfort of a lap.

Donate to Our Rescue Group...

We are a Non-Profit 501c3 Tax exempt organization, all donations are used to help the cats in our care. Adoption donations vary on the type of kitten, cat or dog.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Weekends - Sat. and Sun. at one of these stores. Call ahead for schedule of what store we will be at.
Also, other times during the week by appointment.

Petsmart - Marlton, NJ - Rt 70 (weekends)
Petsmart - Mt Laurel, NJ - Centerton Rd (some weekends)

Our Adoption Process...

Our process is, first an application is filled out, if you visited us and know the cat you’re interested in or if you want to be pre approved then pick out a pet.
After review of the application, vet & references checked and a home visit, this may take a couple of days.
Second, you will receive a call from me informing you of the application decision.
Third if approved, we meet and complete adoption agreement and go over many forms of information, the adoption donation fee depends on the cat.
The kittens or cats are vet checked, dewormed, bathed, vaccinated by age appropriate requirements spayed or neutered and micro chipped.
Because they are rescued the conditions may not always be great of which they came from. It takes time to build up their little immune systems and strength before being able to be vaccinated or having surgery.

You will receive an adoption booklet from our store with coupons for your shopping.
