Facts about Poppy

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: White (Mostly)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: ps_90245483
  • Hair: Short

Poppy is a sweetheart. She is timid yet very affectionate. Poppy is definitely a lap cat and likes to be near you, especially when it's bed time. No matter where she is or what she is doing, when you climb in bed for the night, this little girl is not far behind!

Poppy acts like just about every foster kitten that comes into her foster home is a complete annoyance and she has no patience whatsoever for them! She is a big girl. :) Poppy will be a fantastic cat for a single cat home. She will be okay with one or two other cats as long as they are not bullies. She rarely seeks/gives attention from/to other cats in her foster home but is a target for cats who are dominant and prone to be agressive to timid cats. She loves attention but does not demand it and is content to do her own thing.

Poppy has an extremely playful side and is known to bust out in full play mode at least once every couple of days. She darts around, chases toys she throws and jumps off and on every available surface. Her play spurts are random and completely without predictability. 

You can submit an adoption application for Poppy online at www.myhstc.org/cats. If you have any questions please email hstcpurrs@gmail. com.

About Humane Society of Terrell County

About Our Rescue Group...

The Humane Society of Terrell County (HSTC) is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a registered mailing address in Dawson, GA. We DO NOT have a shelter. We are an all volunteer based rescue operating as a network of foster homes that care for pets in our homes until they can be adopted into loving homes.

HSTC is always in need of donations, volunteers and foster homes. You can find out more about our rescue, our pets and ways you can help by visiting our website at www.myhstc.org. Our telephone number is voice-mail only and is checked several times per week. Email is the best way to contact us. You can always message us through our website as well.

Come Meet Our Pets...

HSTC partners with the local PetSmart store in Albany Georgia in adopting our cats into permanent homes. We rotate our cats every two weeks to keep them from getting too bored or stressed while in the adoption center. Our foster homes are happy to work with anyone that would like information on any of our cats that are not currently in rotation and housed at the PetSmart adoption center. Please do not hesitate to email us for information on how to meet your new best friend!

HSTC holds small adoption events at PetSmart in Albany, GA on the first and third weekends of each month where you can meet some of our dogs available for adoption. PetSmart Charities holds national adoption events during the months of February, May, September and November and HSTC participates in each of these national events. HSTC does not hold our normal first and third weekend events during the months of the national adoption events. We are happy to schedule a meet and greet with potential adopters who would like to meet particular dogs once an application is approved.

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption fee for dogs is $85 and cats $75 (we will discount if more than one pet is adopted at the same time or the adoptee is taking on some type of medical care). We do allow out-of-state adoptions, however, transportation is the responsibility of the adopter.

We require a completed adoption application with a vet reference provided. We screen all applications prior to a meet and greet and we will call your vet to verify your information. Adoption applications are approved on a case-by-case basis, taking into consideration matching the needs of the pet to an owner. Some long distance adoptions may also require a home visit from a local animal rescuer in the adopter’s area.

HSTC is an all volunteer organization - we have no paid staff and we DO NOT have a shelter. The majority of our pets are in individual foster homes with fosters who work full time jobs - some of our dogs are in boarding at one of our vet's offices. We make every effort to respond to questions and make contact on applications within 24-48 hours of receiving them. Please be patient with us.
