Otis's Story...
Change Their Luck Adoption Promotion –

The adoption fee for all cats ages two and older (any color) and cats that are primarily black (any age) is currently only $17! Black, adult, and senior cats are traditionally the least likely cats to be adopted. Many of them experience lengthy stays in foster care before finding their forever home. Adult cats are often overlooked in favor of kittens. However, they have just as much love to give. We’d love to CHANGE THEIR LUCK this March!

This promotion applies to all primarily black (any age) and adult or senior cats (any color) adopted in March 2017 and to any adoption applications received for these fosters through March 31, 2017. Not only can you change their luck – you can change their life!


Otis is looking for a relaxing home where he can retire in style. Otis was adopted from FFN several years ago but was returned since his older mom had several injuries and can no longer care for him.

Otis is approximately 16 years old but please don’t let that deter you. He is current on his veterinary care and is eating a cat food that helps his kidneys.

Otis is alert and playful. He’ll follow you around the house to help with whatever you’re working on or snuggle with you when you’re sitting still. When he’s not hanging around, he loves to sit at a door or window and watch outdoor activities. Otis really is an absolute LOVE bug! He also gets along with other cats.

Please consider giving Otis a loving home. Anyone who cares for him will be blessed to have him in your home. There is no adoption fee for Otis but an application is required.

This kitty has had his initial vaccinations, de-worming, flea preventative, tested negative for FeLV/FIV, and been micro-chipped and altered (or will be micro-chipped and altered prior to adoption).

Adoption application, phone interview, home visit, and adoption fee required (+ PA Sales tax).

If you are interested in adopting a kitty(s), we ask that you complete an on-line adoption application to get the process started. To apply, simply go to www.furryfriendsnetwork.com / ADOPT tab / CAT Adoption Application. You will receive a welcome email once your application has been assigned to a volunteer processor (this should be within 72 hours of submitting an application). If you do not receive such an email, contact catapplication@furryfriendsnetwork.com. Once your application has been processed (this can take approx. 10-14 days), we will arrange contact with the foster to schedule a time to meet kitties you might be interested in. We are an all volunteer organization and appreciate your patience during this process.

Foster Homes are needed in order to help more animals like this one. Please consider opening your heart and home to a homeless animal. Check out our website on how to become a Foster Parent! Visit www.furryfriendsnetwork.com and look under VOLUNTEER. Furry Friends Network provides our foster homes with food, litter, crates/carriers as needed and miscellaneous other supplies as well as veterinary care.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Otis, a Carlisle Domestic Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Carlisle, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Carlisle.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Carlisle already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Carlisle breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Carlisle paves the way for another one to be saved.
