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 great things to say about her. She also is cat friendly after some introduction and respects other cat's 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 my tween daughter when she took a nap in my office, and curling up with/on me when I'd join her on the daybed.

She does like to chew on things (cellphones pointed at her to take her picture, cell phone 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. It wasn't destructive, really. I think she just likes to explore all options available!

She had a lot of fun playing with paper wads that my daughter tossed for her. She's so quiet in her kennel at AWF, so it was great to watch her run and jump and play with abandon! She was always very careful with her claws and it was pure happy crazy cat-ness. She was having a blast!

I think she was happy to be in a new space, accommodated quickly, and would've been totally comfortable exploring more rooms. I think she'll transition to a new home really easily.

Her IBS pill routine took 30 seconds and was easy to do. 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.

Ashley's daily IBS medication shouldn't stop any interested adopter from considering her. It really shouldn't be an issue for someone who has a 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 would be that she doesn't like her current food. She will want any other pet's food, because her bland food isn't very exciting to her! You can leave her dry food out for her all day, because it isn't very exciting food so she doesn't wolf it down.

All Ashley wants is to be a part of someone's life; she's very sweet, very polite, very loving, very easy, very affectionate. With her food/IBS stuff nailed she is 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
Adult cats (over 12 months) - $150

The adoption donation helps to offset part of the veterinary care and temporary boarding costs of the adopted pet. Any additional donation is greatly appreciated and will hep us to continue our lifesaving work!
