Facts about Zeke

  • Breed: Russian Blue
  • Color: Gray Or Blue
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 10443817
  • Hair: Short

This is Ezekiel. He is a Russian blue mix, about one year old. More about how he got his name later, but he likes to go by 'Zeke' or 'Z.' We don't know how he came to be on his own, but like so many other poor souls, he was barely surviving. He looked like a walking skeleton on four legs, yet he slowly put one paw in front of the other in order to go up to each car that pulled up to the dock looking for food and perhaps a home. He was scooped up and taken to a vet who stated that only a strong will had kept this starving cat alive. Thus the name 'Ezekiel' which means strength. The person who adopts Zeke will need to be patient as he builds trust. He is wary and startles easily, but he does attach himself strongly to 'his people.' He is playful. He enjoys it when you (his person) sit down a few feet away from him. He then rolls back and forth towards you until he finally touches you. At this time, Zeke will probably do better with a single person or couple. 

About Shelter Animals Rescue Group (SARG)

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small, all-volunteer, 501(c)3 nonprofit rescue group, with emphasis on mixed-breed dogs and cats. We adopt primarily from our local animal shelter, although we occasionally take in hardship cases. We also assist individuals in our area by advertising on our website animals they need to rehome, if the animals have been spayed/neutered. We gratefully accept donations, and we need volunteers for many events. More than anything, we need foster homes.

Come Meet Our Pets...

As a volunteer group, we do not have a facility. Our animals reside in foster homes and boarding kennels. We show them regularly at the PetSmart store on Parkside Drive in Knoxville the second Friday of each month, 4 to 8 p.m., as well as by appointment.

Our Adoption Process...

Cat adoption fee is $125, and $145 for dogs. We attempt to match the animal's characteristics with the family and their lifestyle. We require an application form, which becomes part of the adoption contract, a personal or phone interview, veterinarian reference if applicable, home visit, and an additional agreement about how the animal will be treated. Cats must be indoors only, not declawed. Dogs must be fenced or leashed when outdoors and treated as part of the family--indoors as much as possible, and always at night. Adopter agrees to provide regular veterinary care, and to return the animal to us if they ever give it up. We reserve the right to check on the animal's welfare from time to time, with appropriate notice.
