Facts about Stella

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Calico Or Dilute Calico
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: OA

Stella and her sister Luna were adopted together at 4 months of age. They are 8 months old now, as of 9/1/16. Their owner isn't able to keep them anymore and is seeking a new home for them.

Stella is a star-studded calico. She is friendly but a bit shy and may hide under the bed for awhile until she gets to know you. She loves to play and will come out when she's ready. She particularly likes hunting down a feather on a string.

Stella is spayed, current on shots, micro-chipped and litter box trained. She has lived with dogs and other cats.

About Dusty Paws Rescue, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small group of volunteers whose mission is to save abandoned, neglected and/or abused animals by placing them into permanent, safe, stable and caring new homes. All of us have experience with volunteering in shelters and continue to volunteer.

We do not mind driving to do a home visit nor do we mind taking the time to go anywhere to look at a potential needy animal who needs to be saved from any situation, either in a shelter or in a home. We do take owner surrenders and have an owner assist program but most of our animals come from shelters.

We hate to see any animal suffer and this is why we do this.

Our Adoption Process...

Our process to adopt is as follows: An application form is completed and submitted at which time we will contact the applicant within 24 hours and discuss the animal they are interested in and make an appointment to meet or give them the date of the next adoption showcase. The entire family should meet along with any resident animals, if possible. Once that is done and it seems like a good fit, a home visit is required at which time we can leave the animal for a required sleepover period of approximately 10-14 days and a Sleepover Agreement is then signed; if that works out then we can proceed with adoption. Our adoption fee is $300 for dogs, $100 for cats, $350 for puppies under one year of age and $50 is refunded upon receipt of a Certificate of Completion of Training from a certified training facility/trainer for a puppy adoption. At any given time after the adoption, Dusty Paws Rescue will accept back into our program the adopted animal if it doesn't work out.
