Looking for the most exquisite purring machine on Long Island? Meet Ruby, a gorgeous purebred Chocolate Torte Himalayan cat. Ruby is 12 years young, spayed, up to date on shots, and quite healthy, aside from some arthritis. She is very pretty with amazing blue eyes.

Ruby is her own cat and likes things on her own terms. She can be very affectionate at times, especially in the morning, when she wants you to get out of bed and feed her! At other times, she likes to follow you around the house like a dog. She likes to sit next to you, and is a great conversationalist. In an only-pet home that is quiet, predictable and comfortable for her, Ruby will probably come out of her shell and be more of a loving lap cat. Her environment has been quite chaotic for the past year or so, and this has caused Ruby some anxiety.

Ruby’s owner, Christina, loves her very much. Unfortunately, life has taken a serious turn, and she is no longer able to provide Ruby with the care and environment she needs to flourish. She is dearly hoping to find Ruby a wonderful home with a die hard Himy lover who understands the nature and needs of the breed. Ruby needs lots of TLC. She has never quite accepted a grooming routine, but a patient owner will be able to help her welcome the pleasures of the brush.

If you would like to offer Ruby the loving home she needs and very much deserves, please fill out our online information form below. Once received, we will have Ruby’s owner contact you to discuss your application and set up a mutually convenient time to meet.

Supplies will be included. Rehoming fee will be waived for the right owner.

About New York City Find My Pet A Home

About Our Rescue Group...

In many locations throughout the USA and Canada, shelters are rescues are filled to capacity, leaving pet owners who can no longer care for their pet with nowhere to turn. Many pets are needlessly being euthanized.

Being placed in a shelter is a very stressful experience for all pets - and their owners. We offer a very good alternative, allowing pets to stay in the loving care of their owners while a new home is located for them.

We have helped many pet owners in need to place their pet in a home where they have great peace of mind in knowing that their pet is being cherished, well cared for and kept safe, happy and healthy.

Come Meet Our Pets...

In most instances, our pets stay with their owners until a new home can be located. There are some situations which require a more urgent placement, and in these instances, we look for loving foster homes to care for these pets until a permanent home can be located.

Our Adoption Process...

When a pet is placed with our organization, our staff create a very honest and compelling adoption story about the pet, using the information provided to us.

We then spread the word about this pet's need for a new home through a wide variety of online services, and through local outreach.

Interested parties are directed to fill out a formal request to meet a pet, providing in-depth information about themselves.

Before a potential adopter is introduced to a pet, we do careful reference screening and a criminal records check.

Should the pet's owner and the adoptive party agree to an adoption, a formal agreement is entered into, requiring the new owner to agree to keep in touch, ensure the pet's physical and emotional well-being, and provide a safe, happy and healthy home.

They are required to agree that they will not surrender the pet to a shelter or give away the pet - but rather they are to contact our organization so that we can find another suitable home, in the event that they are unable to fulfill their commitment.

The owners deliver the pet to the new owners, so that they can do a home inspection prior to leaving the pet in the new owner's care.

Our organization provides follow-up services, contacting the new owners after the first week, and then every 45 days for the first nine months post-adoption. This helps ensure the pet is being well cared for, and that the new owners have any support they need in adjusting to life with their new companion,
