Meet Leonidas aka Leo to his nearest and dearest! Leo is a gorgeous large 2 year old cat that was an owner surrender. He was very timid and traumatized when he came into our care and it has taken him a little while to adjust to the hustle and bustle of a loud busy household filled with little kids and cats and dogs! He lived a solitary life before and our house was a shock to his senses! He has adapted so very well and has taken to family living just wonderfully!

Although he is rather shy and enjoys his own company, Leo loves rolling onto his back to get his belly tickled and is so sweet when looking for attention! He is playful and loves his toys and he is so excited to find his FORever home! I really hope it is with you!

You may talk with his foster mom by emailing If you'd like to meet him, please complete the cat application at There is no obligation, it is simply our starting point. Leo is located in Madison, AL.

About Friends of Rescue - Knoxville, TN

About Our Rescue Group...

Friends of Rescue is a certified 501(c)(3) organization formed in 2009, consisting of volunteers who are devoted to saving shelter animals that are in danger of euthanasia. Southern shelters have a constant overflow of dogs and cats, little funding, and limited space. Once the animals arrive at the shelter, they have very little time. It is our goal to help save these adoptable animals and find loving individuals/families who will provide committed, FORever homes. We are NOT professional trainers or animal behaviorists; simply volunteers who are trying to save these animals from euthanasia. Each animal in our program is in a foster home and receives all age-appropriate vetting while in our care.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our animals are mostly fostered in northern Alabama. But we have many wonderful adopters who come from the Tennessee area to adopt our wonderful adoptables.

Our Adoption Process...
