  • Age: Unknown
  • Sex: Unknown
  • ID#: 10314896

Patches was tested positive for FIV.  An FIV+ diagnosis not a death sentence - it means that he is more susceptible to colds and other conditions and can still live a long, healthy life with no health issues.  Being FIV+ he should be an indoor cat and be the only cat or with other cats that are also FIV+.  Many people adopt only FIV+ cats.   We know many indoor FIV+ cats that have never been sick. 

This animal is eligible to participate in our Take a Chance on Me program!  Its  a no-fee, foster-to-adopt program for the shelter's 'wallflowers' who we know will shine once at home!  These kitties have been overlooked because they're a little older, shy, intimidated, or overwhelmed.  But each has their own way of winning your heart! 

Patches is in a foster home and is currently unavailable for viewing except by appointment.  Even though an advertised cat may not be ready yet for their public meet and greet, we are accepting applications for preapproval now.

All our cats come spayed/neutered, have their age appropriate shots, micro-chipped and dewormed/deflead.

Our Adoption Process...

Puppies less than one year $300=400 depending on breed and age. Dogs less than 5 years old are $200-250. Dogs over 5 years old are $150 or less depending on age and health status. These fees include spay or neuter, vaccination against rabies, distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parainfluenza, parvovirus, and bordetella. We also worm, and test for heartworm. Animal Rescue is a nonprofit organization, so your donations are tax deductible. Our adoption policies are as follows: We require a signed adoption contract, and payment of adoption fee prior to placement. Fee is refundable if the dog is returned within 30 days. We require that the dog be returned to our care, in the event the placement does not work out even if that is many years in the future.
