I found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.


I am already neutered, housetrained, a special needs pet, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.


VALENTINO is by far one of the sweetest natured cats we have ever fostered. He is a beautiful Turkish Van (, which is a hypoallergenic breed, and easily makes friends with other cats, dogs, kittens, people, children. He was housed in a room with super skittish cats and kittens who all gravitated towards him and came out of their shells so long as he was around. He will "talk" to everyone  very gently, and will hang out with anyone who is willing. Even animals who feel threatened by him at first, and act aggressively towards him, he will befriend anyway, with his undying devotion, patience and love. VALENTINO has been of great comfort to those going through tragedy and crisis. He would make an excellent emotional support animal. He will follow his human around like a dog and will quietly talk to them and ask for affection. He's highly emotionally intelligent and very accepting of all beings. He has a special knack for taking care of those who need it most.

VALENTINO is visually impaired. He has been examined by our vet and was determined to see shadows and forms but not be 100% sighted. However, he gets along fine, and all of his other senses are perfect. One would not guess that he has visual difficulties, as it is not apparent immediately. He would do fine in any home, so long as the furniture/objects are not changed every minute. He learns his surroundings quickly, and knows exactly where the food and water bowls are, as well as the litter box, so he's never had any accidents. He does not need to go into a special sanctuary for special needs animals, but will integrate well into any loving home.

VALENTINO was rescued from a high kill shelter in the nick of time and is at a foster home, but is really hoping a wonderful person chooses him to be part of a loving forever family.

VALENTINO is housebroken, always uses the litterbox, doesn't spray, doesn't scratch up the furniture, and is well-behaved. As well as current on all shots/vaccinations, is fixed, microchipped and tested negative for FeLV/FIV.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

VALENTINO - SANTA BARBARA, a Corona Turkish Van cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Turkish Van for sale in Corona, or seeking a Turkish Van cat from a breeder in Corona.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Corona 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 Corona 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 Turkish Van breeders who help with Turkish Van rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Corona paves the way for another one to be saved.
