Facts about Peaches

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tan Or Fawn Tabby
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Peaches is a 7-8 month old kitten who was found as a stray at a good Samaritan's front door begging for food. Although she's still a baby herself, it is apparent that Peaches has already had a litter of her own. No kittens were found & Peaches had no interest in leaving once she was fed. She was content to stay & play with the children in the backyard. The vet says that because of her young age & extremely malnourished condition, her kittens were unlikely to have survived.

In spite of her hard start in life, Peaches is a little sweetie. She loves people of all ages. Even the 2 & 3 year old kids at the house where she was found didn't faze her. Peaches loves being snuggled & cuddled & loved on. She craves attention and company, but she's pretty polite in her demands.

Now that she's in foster care, she having a little trouble adapting to the other cats in the home, but we think that may be more a food guarding issue than anything else. Peaches is literally skin & bones. She weighs under 6#. But she's eating well & we hope to have her feeling better soon.

So far, she thinks dogs are a little scary, but she doesn't run. She hisses at them. With a little more time, she should do great with cat-savvy dogs.

If you are interested in adding this beautiful little cat to your family, please shoot us an email & we'll send you an adoption application. Her adoption fee will be $75.

About Dearborn County Friends of Animals

About Our Rescue Group...

Who We Are
Mission Statement
We are a committed, thoughtful group of volunteers who strive to provide assistance for unwanted, lost and neglected animals by providing humane education, veterinary care, animal rescue and by actively encouraging pet population control through spay and neuter.

Helping Homeless Animals Get a Second Chance at Life...
We have a network of foster homes and take in dogs and cats who have been found as strays, given up by their owners, and taken from area shelters to make more room there for other animals.

Preventing Unwanted Litters to Save Lives...
We are also at work to increase the numbers of spayed/neutered animals in our area--the heart of the pet overpopulation problem. We search for funding to assist those who can't afford to have their pets spayed/neutered and educate those people who have not before considered the consequences of their pets' unwanted and unplanned litters.

Assisting Pet Owners in Being Responsible Pet Owners...
Through our adoption outreach programs and contact with pet owners, we take advantage of each opportunity to educate others about the need for responsible pet ownership. We believe that everyone has a responsibility to their pets which demands that each of us follow the local animal control laws, that we keep proper identification on our pets, that we seek regular veterinary care, that we not allow them to run at large, that we spay/neuter them as early as possible, and that we treat them in a humane and caring way. Our volunteers strive to present these ideas when discussing pet care and ownership.

Providing Others with the Opportunity to Help Homeless Animals
We are a volunteer organization and strive to provide opportunities for others to help in our efforts. There are always volunteer opportunities and we are happy to help people get involved, with as little or as much time commitment as they want to provide.

Our Adoption Process...

Our basic adoption fee is $200 per dog/puppy and $100 for a cat/kitten.

We ask all potential adopters to fill out our adoption application. It is a simple Excel spreadsheet that we can email to you.

We require all our animals to be adopted as inside companion animals only. Other than that, the requirements are usually specific to each animal. Some dogs require a fenced yard, some do not. Some pets don't do well with children, some are great with kids.

We are a small group & the animals are all fostered in our homes as family members. That allows us the luxury of getting to know each individual & then looking for a home that will best fit his or her needs.

Our main goal is to place each animals in a permanent loving home where it will stay for the rest of its life.
