HERO is a young handsome orange tabby boy, with gorgeous markings!, who recently lost his home. He's a social, sweet boy who is active, playful and social. He likes to 'burrow' in his bed, play with the laser toy, and get hugs. He was a little shy at first because he just lost the only home and family he's known since he was a kitten. But he's settling in now and we're getting to really know this wonderful boy!

About Tavi & Friends

About Our Rescue Group...

Tavi & Friends is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to helping companion animals with unique challenges through public awareness, partnership and teamwork, TTouch therapy, training, TNR rescue and adoption. We are also a breed rescue for the American Curl cat.

We rescue cats and dogs from many situations, bring them into a foster care environment to help with needed rehabilitation, medical care, and socialization. We are members of the NYC Breed Network, the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals, Tellington TTouch Int’l, and network with other animal welfare organizations.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Some Kittens and Cats may be seen at our two Petco Adoption Centers:
2824 Ling Beach Rd, Oceanside NY 11572
1851 Sunrise Hwy, Bay Shore, NY

Other cats and dogs are in foster care; meeting them is by appointment only or at one of our many adoption events around the NYC / LI areas.

Tavi & Friends does not have a shelter facility at this time (although having the funds for a Shelter|Sanctuary someday is one of our biggest dreams!)

Our Adoption Process...

Tavi & Friends uses an application process: completion and submission of our adoption application; reference and vet checks required; on-site home visit required prior to approval, spot visits; adoption contract. Adoption fees vary depending on animal, and will be discussed with potential adopters.

The adoption process may take a little time as we work hard to ensure that all of our animals go to the best forever home.

All animals will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated as appropriate, cats tested for FIV/FeLV, and we provide full disclosure of the animal’s condition prior to completion of the adoption process. We do, however, recommend that you see your own veterinarian after adoption, and at least yearly, to ensure the ongoing health and well-being of your new pet for many years to come!
