Facts about Ashley

  • Breed: Russian Blue
  • Color: Gray Or Blue
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Little Ashley is a good kitty. Our staff and volunteers have nothing but good things to say about her. She also is cat friendly after some introduction and respects other cats space. Her and her neighbor Claire often roam the cat room at the same time and even swap kennels and sleep in each others beds! She has a funny purr sound that makes her unique. Ashley has IBS so needs a special diet and a pill each morning. Despite this, she is cuddly and sweet and a pleasure to be around. Ashley is waiting for your love!


"We had her Saturday through Monday morning. She was really, really, really easy, purring and hunkering down on Annika when AJ took a nap in my office, and curling up with/on me when I'd join her on my daybed.

She does like to chew on things (cellphones pointed at her, cords) and claw on rugs and such, but I keep a bathmat under my desk for my dogs to park on that she had a great time clawing at and I couldn't care less. (Maybe worth getting her a claw sharpening pad for her kennel?)

Pill was easy. I'm not usually the pill giver at AWF so she didn't see it coming :) One pill in the AM an hour before you feed her, and that's it. She takes it, gives you a sullen look, and its forgotten a minute later. You can pretty much leave her dry food out for her all day, because she doesn't wolf it down and there is no fear of her overeating.

My husband pet her into a "crazy time" where she started charging around and playing with paper wads that Annika and I tossed for her. She was always careful with her claws and it was pure happy crazy catness. She ended up exploring more of my office room than Claire or the kittens: she was up on the dresser and desk, peeking out the window, popping dresser doors open to look inside.

I think she was happy to be in a new space, accommodated quickly, and would have been happy to explore more rooms. I think she'll transition to a new home really easily. And be really sweet and thankful to her new humans!

The pill is actually super simple and shouldn't really be an issue for someone who has a nice structured schedule where they have enough time in the morning to pop the pill and wait an hour to feed her. The surprise issue to a new adopter is that she doesn't like her current food. She will want any other pet's food.

She just wants to be pet. Very sweet. Very easy. And actually with her food/IBS stuff nailed she seems totally healthy and not in any way a burden."

Our Adoption Process...

Thank you for your interest in adopting from the Animal Wellness Foundation. Below you will find information about the adoption process and where you can meet our available animals.

Our mission is to place homeless dogs and cats into loving, forever homes. We take special care to match the right home with the right pet, ensuring a lifetime of love for both the pet and the adopter.

Our adoption process was designed to help ensure that we select the best homes for our animals.

Adoption Process

1. Complete an online adoption questionnaire:

If you are interested in adopting a cat, please go to

If you are interested in adopting a dog, please go to

After we receive your adoption questionnaire, one of our adoption counselor will get in touch with you.

2. Pre-Adoption Home Visit: We conduct a pre-adoption home visit prior to placing an animal to ensure that they will be living in a safe environment. During the home visit, our adoption counselors will give you tips about how to best introduce the cat/dog to your home and make the transition as easy as possible.

3. Adoption Contract and Donation: Next, both the adopter and Animal Wellness Foundation sign an adoption contract and the adopter pays the adoption donation.

Puppies (under 12 months) - $350
Adult dogs (over 12 months) - $275
Kittens (under 12 months) - $175
2 kittens (because 2 are better than 1 :) - $300
