Meow! My name is Toothless Toby
Toothless Toby's Info...
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Orange Or Red (Mostly)||Age:||Adult|
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.
UPDATE: Someone contacted Hal's Haven because they fell in love with me. I responded but never heard back from them. Here is my response to their inquiry:
Your inquiry almost brought me to tears. I am such a wonderful boy who just needs love and time to adjust (now that I am no longer in pain).
Although I have recouperated I still think I am meant to be a gourmet and eat Elegant Medleys but will eat the slop they call canned food (of other varieties) and dry food - if I must (paw flung over forehead fainting for emphasis). I have become a bit of a character now that I feel better. Just last night I made a super hero jump over a 90 pound dog - not because he would hurt me nor because I needed to get by him but just because I can.
My adoption fee is $75. I am feline leukemia and FIV negative, neutered, up to date on shots, dewormed, treated with Revolution and will be microchipped. I will also not require any dental work in the future :). My foster mom loves me and would love to see me in a home with more individual attention and love. She has attached an application for you to complete and return.
I was dropped over the fence at the local animal shelter when they were closed. It took the lady there two weeks and lots of canned food before I trusted her enough to let her pet me. After I arrived at Hal's Haven they took me in to have a hernia repaired. While doing the surgery the vet noticed that I have Stomatis (I have a bad reaction to any plaque on my teeth). I was treated wtih antibiotics and did really well until January when my foster mom noticed I was loosing weight. The stomatis was back with a vengence and I was in so much pain I was not eating enough. Thanks to a lot of very kind individuals the money was raised to have my teeth pulled. The surgery was brutall (the vet said so)! My teeth crumbled when they tried to pull them so they had to do more extensive surgery to remove the roots. During my recovery I discovered I am a gourmet. I love Fancy Feast Elegant Medley's. Nothing else is as good.
I am feeling better now. I actually like to be petted - sometimes. I hurt for so long I am still leary at first. Once you pet me I ask for more.

Rescue Group Info...
We are a group dedicated to fostering orphaned kittens and finding permanent homes for orphan kittens and displaced cats. All pets are fostered as family members with free run of the house, interaction with other cats/kittens and dogs, and well socialized in a public office environment. Cats in foster care may have different living conditions. Ask where the cat is fostered at. Once we accept a healthy animal it is kept until a permanent home is found. Any poor behavior is worked on to make the pet more acceptable in your home. We adopt only to homes that will not declaw and are in-door only.
All purebred cats are pulled from high risk shelters and held in quarantine. Most purebred cats are then transported to approved breed specific rescues. If we do not have the cat or breed that you are looking for we can help you to find an organization with the cat/breed you are looking for.
We fully support our local humane society and solute them for the tough job they have to do. If you need to re-home your pet we strongly encourage you to work to find it a good and loving home. Only after you have exhausted all of your resources we encourage you to contact the local humane society. The cruel act of dropping your unwanted pet to exist on its own will likely result in its death due to starvation, disease or predation.
We cannot stress enough the need to spay or neuter your pet. Only when pet owners become responsible and spay or neuter their pets will we be on the road to having every pet be able to find a loving home. By spaying or neutering your pet you are saving the lives of unwanted kittens and puppies.
Because we are a network of foster homes we are open by appointment only seven days a week.
All kittens/cats adopted from Hal's Haven are spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations, de-wormed, treated for fleas and other parasites, tested for Felv and FIV, use to other cats and dogs, socialized. Because we care about the kittens and cats we adopt out we adopt to indoor homes that will not de-claw.
Our adoption process is:
1. Potential adopters complete the application. You will receive an e-mail confirming receipt of your application.
2. The application is reviewed and information verified. A home visit may be made. Vet references are verified. Landlords are consulted to ensure that the pet is allowed.
3. The adoption agreement is signed and the adoption donation is paid after applicant is qualified. Adoption donations vary. Some adoptions may be more if more veterinary care is required. Download our adoption agreement here.
4. The kitten/cat is taken home.
5. A member of our team will call and/or visit to check on how everything is going.
