Facts about Crinkle

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Gray, Blue Or Silver Tabby
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Dear Crinkle is a Koala Bear in a cat's body!  He is the sweetest, most tolerant boy -- never hisses, never swats or scratches people, easy to pick up and cuddle.  :o)  He's very shy initially, but comes to love people once he knows them.  His name comes from the fact that one of his ears is permanently "crinkled" due to infection (now healed) earlier in life. 
Despite his FIV+ status, Crinkle is very healthy; most FIV+ cats can live normal, full, healthy lives, especially if they are indoor-only pets.  He can also safely live with other FIV- cats without posing a risk to them (FIV is only transmitted through severe bite wounds or in utero from mother cats to unborn kittens).  Please help us to demystify the stigma of FIV -- please contact us to learn more about Crinkle!

About Pets Bring Joy

About Our Rescue Group...

We are passionate about the fact that pets bring joy to the people who love them, and vice versa! Our full mission statement is presented on our website, petsbringjoy.org, but in a nutshell, we rescue adoptable animals (primarily cats) at risk from "kill shelters," emphasizing adult cats who often get passed over in favor of kittens. We support them through the kindness of volunteer foster homes, and work to find qualified, loving homes for them all.

We also encourage collaboration within the rescue community, working with smaller "grass roots" rescue organizations to help them with community outreach and fund-raising.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Most of our sponsored cats are cared for by foster volunteers in their homes throughout Northern Virginia. We arrange for approved adopters to meet our kitties in their foster homes, where the kitties are in their most relaxed and natural environment.

We are also delighted to have been chosen as the resident rescue organization for PetSmart's East Fairfax store, located at 9528 Main Street in Fairfax, Virginia 22031 (at the corner of Pickett Road and Main Street aka "Little River Turnpike"). You may *view* our kitties any time that the store is open (store phone: (571) 328-7770), but it's best if you contact us via email first so that we can arrange to have a PBJ volunteer meet you to open the cat room so that you can *interact* with them.

We regularly hold adoption events at the store on Saturdays ... please check our website, petsbringjoy.org, for our latest adoption schedule.

We also have animals housed at the PetMAC in DC. Please visit their website: petmac.org/dc; visit Lori at the PetMAC DC store 7 days a week or email Lori at rezqumee@gmail.com for more information.

Our Adoption Process...

We require completion of an initial on-line application; our evaluation process involves two phone interviews, a vet reference check, and a home visit.
