Facts about Daisy

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Calico Or Dilute Calico
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: C-16-218
  • Hair: Short

Description: Daisy is a short haired Calitabby.

Personality: Daisy is a confident, sweet-tempered calitabby, which is a mixture of a calico and a dark gray tabby. Although she can be timid with strangers at first, she will quickly become your best friend and follow you everywhere you go. Daisy loves to be loved and with the typical calico behavior, assumes that she comes first in your life. She enjoys cuddling and giving nose kisses to show how adorable she is.

Another favorite pastime is jumping in her foster mom's lap while at the computer and helping to "type" on the keyboard. Daisy is an extremely smart and active kitten. At 4 mos, she mastered going in and out of the pet door leading onto the screened in porch to watch the birds and squirrels. She gets along great with the older cats in her foster mom's household and being younger and faster, enjoys leading them on a merry chase of hide and seek. It's amazing to watch how she continually outwits her older step-siblings during playtime and then settles down in an obscure hiding place to catch her breath while she watches in amusement as they wonder where she went.

Please take a closer look at this beautiful, independent, little girl. She will make a wonderful, playful companion for a family or person who is deserving of her.

Animal History: Daisy was found in an apartment complex in Durham with her two siblings.

About Independent Animal Rescue, Inc

About Our Rescue Group...

IAR started with one woman's big dreams, a bigger heart, and a very distinctive purple pickup truck that helped her rescue countless numbers of unwanted, abused, and homeless Triangle pets. Originally founded in 1994, IAR earned an official 501 (c)(3) status in 1995. IAR is currently governed by a Board of Directors, managed by elected officers, and supported by over 100 unpaid volunteers. There are no paid positions within IAR, so 100% of all donations directly support animal care and rehabilitation.


Our mission is to rescue and provide safe and responsible care for homeless, abandoned, and abused animals. We shall strive to help all animals in need through our service programs. We will serve our communities through promotion of spay or neuter for all companion animals, and the education of children and adults in the humane care, respect and responsibility for animals on this earth.


At IAR, we believe that the welfare of animals is paramount. We feel that we can alleviate problems associated with animal overpopulation and abandonment using a 4-pronged approach: (1) Rescue and adoption of unwanted and abused animals; (2) funding of spay/neuter; (3) education and outreach on animal welfare to our youngest members of the community; and (4) legislation and lobbying efforts on behalf of animals.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our wonderful IAR cats and kittens are out and about greeting folks at the Durham Petsmart (Patterson Place) and Petco (South Square) locations almost every Saturday and Sunday (1pm-5pm). In addition, some of our cats are housed at these stores for short durations. You can visit these kitties anytime during store hours! If you see a kitty that you'd like to meet and possibly adopt, please fill out an online application at www.animalrescue.net. We will be in touch shortly!

IAR dogs and puppies are available for "meet and greet" at the Durham Petsmart (Patterson Place) on the first and third Sundays each month (2pm-4pm). Please check our calendar for specific dates and locations where you may meet your new best friend!

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption Requirements

  • 20-year commitment to the animal

  • You may not be an undergraduate student or member of the military

  • You must be a US citizen

  • You must allow a home visit (an IAR volunteer to visit your home prior to adoption.)


Adoption Process

  • Fill out an adoption interest application HERE or call us at 919-403-2221. A volunteer will contact you shortly to discuss your application.

  • Our goal is finding lifelong, loving homes for our animals, so we try to find the best match between animal and adopter. We can help advise you on which animals to meet based on your situation.

  • You can meet some of our animals at our monthly adoption fairs, or we can arrange for a meeting in the foster home. If it’s a good match, the foster parent will come to visit your home in person. This is to make sure your home is safe and secure for a new companion animal.

  • Note: IAR makes every effort to please our adopters, but our first concern must be for the animal’s welfare. We reserve the right to deny any application.
