Mortimer Mouse is an only child from an outside mommy who is very friendly. When Mouse got his sharp teeth at three weeks, she decided she wasn't feeding him anymore and went on to feed some orphan kitties. So Mouse came to live with us and had to learn to eat soft food at an early age. He is a sweet boy who only likes to be held for a short time, because he has toys to play with. He has gotten to the point where he likes some cuddling and comes up on the couch and asks for attention, getting on the back of the couch and rubbing my head. He is quite the purr bunny! He does rough house with the other cats and sometimes needs to have a time out!
Riley's Ark is named in honor of a beloved Staffordshire Bull Terrier who lived with us for 15 years before she succumbed to cancer. She loved and lived with all kinds of other animals. All pets live underfoot with other cats and dogs. We have limited space in our home, so until one is adopted, we cannot take another one in.
Come Meet Our Pets...
We do not have facilities for visits unless arrangements are made by phone. Usually we do a home visit with a pet who has been predetermined as possibly appropriate for a particular home. Our pets are kept under foot, not in cages, so they tend to be better socialized than many shelter pets, and we do not euthanize healthy pets. We also use foster homes, so if you are interested in fostering a pet, please contact us about that. Please help us by donating by clicking the PayPal button at www.rileysark.petfinder.com Our pets thank you.
Our Adoption Process...
There is an application form to be filled out, references checked and a home visit may be required. A cash or PayPal non-refundable adoption donation helps to defray costs, since all pets have up-to-date vaccinations and are spayed or neutered before they can be adopted. Rates vary depending on what medical care was involved to get a pet ready for adoption. You will find that our rates are quite reasonable when compared to many rescues and shelters in the area. We will also work with you to make sure that your adoption gives you a forever companion. We have a two-week health guarantee that if your pet gets sick within two weeks of your adopton date, if you bring the pet to us to see our vet, you will not have to pay for the pet's care. After the two weeks, it is your responsibility to give veterinary care to your pet.
