Facts about Lucy

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Gray Or Blue (Mostly)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
I'm Lucy, and I'm a FIV+ kitty who loves to purr, give and get kisses and enjoys the company of dogs and cats as well as humans. I was pulled off euthanasia list by kind hoomans who call themselves rescue group, and now I am living in a loving foster home. Most people are not familiar with FIV and end up overlooking us during adoption events, although we just like other kitties live healthy fulfilled lives and are wonderful companions. I hope that some day a kind hooman will come across my profile and fall in love with me. I promise to give them kisses every day.

About Be Your Own Hero Inc

About Our Rescue Group...

Be Your Own Hero Inc is an official 501c3 No-Kill Animal Rescue Organization.
Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home animals from all walks of life. Our rescue provides all medical, nutritional, behavioral, and emotional care and support needed for each animal we rescue. Our foster home-based program allows us to provide our rescue animals with a loving home-like environment until they are carefully matched with the perfect adopter. As veterinary medical professionals, we believe that nutrition plays a detrimental role in the health of an animal, therefore we are one of the few rescues who uses only high quality pet food for our rescue furries. We have zero tolerance for discrimination and value all life, regardless of age, behavioral issues, breed or disabilities.



Florida law requires that all charities soliciting donations disclose their registration number and the percentage of your donation that goes to the cause and the amount that goes to the solicitor. Our registration number is CH39909 and non-program expenses are funded from our own income, so 100% of your donations are tax-deductible and go directly towards the care of our rescued animals. We are a 501 c 3 charity as determined by the IRS.

We believe that all life is sacred and every sentient being deserves a chance to LIVE.
Our mission is to give them that chance.

Our Adoption Process...

Three Easy Steps.
1. Fill out an adoption application
2. Schedule meet and greet/home check
3. Pay an adoption fee
$40 cat adoption fee is the general adoption fee which includes spay/neuter, vaccinations and microchip.
$50 dog adoption fee is the general adoption fee which includes spay/neuter, vaccinations, microchip and heartworm test.

We do not approve declawing and therefore will not adopt a cat out to anyone who approves of such cruel and unneeded practices. Same goes for ear clipping.
