  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
COURTESY POST -- 8/29/2016

Duke, a cat who has served as the "mouser" at Laurel Heights United Methodist Church, needs a new home immediately! The school board has asked the couple who located him to remove him from the church immediately.

Duke is a calm, somewhat shy cat at least 8 years of age, who has not exhibited the need for lots of toys and things that some cats do. He was originally brought to Laurel Heights at the request of the church to eradicate rodents. Duke was found by a dedicated couple who have participated for many years in the local feral cat network. One day when they went to feed the cats, they noticed that there was a new adult cat there who had clearly been a domestic cat. It was 5 years before they could trap Duke, get him neutered and take him to LHUMC. There he spent 2 weeks eradicating rodents from under the choir loft.

Although brought to the church building as a mouser, he has won the hearts of many. Duke likes to sit at the feet of people sitting in the reception area. He is a very gentle cat and will be a blessing to anyone who adopts him.

Duke is FIV positive and must be an indoor-only kitty. FIV is passed from feline to feline through a bite. He has no signs of the FIV manifesting itself in his body, and the vet said he may never, because he is well cared for and very healthy. His shots are up-to-date and his teeth have been cleaned.

Should Duke become ill in the future, Karla and Frank would gladly assume the responsibility of his medical care, if needed. To adopt Duke, please contact Karla Galindo at or 210-378-6003.

About Animal Rescue Connections

About Our Rescue Group...

Animal Rescue Connections was founded in 2004 and serves the Bulverde/San Antonio, Texas and surrounding areas. With a growing number of volunteers and the support of other rescue and shelter groups, we are making a difference in the lives of stray animals in our neighborhoods.

The organization exists as a non-profit organization to educate and assist in all aspects of animal rescue, specifically promoting humane treatment of all animals, spay/neuter of companion animals and encouraging responsible, humane treatment of stray cat populations.

Located in Bulverde TX, we are an all foster organization, caring for our rescued animals in our own homes. Because we are not a shelter, we cannot take in all the animals we get called about, but we can find the "connections" you need to help you with your rescued, lost or found animal.

This non-profit organization exists because of the numbers of unwanted, forgotten animals on our streets and strives to provide education and charitable assistance on all aspects of animal rescue.
