Pretty DSH Calico Senior Female

Tamara is a very pretty, 9 year old DSH Calico spayed female. She is a little shy off the bat as she adjusts to her new life at the shelter. She was adopted a few years back and recently returned. She is sweet and enjoys attention, but will let you know when she's had enough. She has some arthritis in her low back and does not like her lower back touched. She can get a little nippy if she doesn't like where she's being pet or she's had enough. We think she'd be friendlier and enjoy attention more if there were not so many other cats around her. She doesn't care for other cats and prefers to be the only cat. She was around men, women, calm, cat-friendly children, cats and calm, cat-friendly dogs in her former home. Come meet this very pretty lady.

About Angels With Paws

About Our Shelter...

We believe ALL animals have the right to life.
Angels with Paws 501c3 charity runs a mostly cage-free, Limited Intake Rescue Shelter that since opening in 2004 has provided over 9,500 homeless, unwanted, abused, neglected and abandoned cats, kittens (and some dogs through foster care) with rescue, Veterinary and other care, rehab and a place to live until they are adopted. Many of them are injured, ill, disabled, and older and would be turned away or put down by other shelters. For these animals Angels with Paws is their last hope. This is amazing work considering we operate out of a converted Fast Food building, have very limited resources, few volunteers, no promotion, and no on-site Veterinarian. We educate the public on responsible pet ownership, and offer advice in caring for pets with the hope that they can be kept in their own homes instead of being relinquished to a shelter, the need to Spay/Neuter and the cruelty of declawing.

Angels with Paws does not receive any Government, Corporate or any regular funding. We do not have an on-site Veterinarian, and have to pay for our Veterinary Care and Supplies. Nearly all of our funding comes from private donations.

Our dream is to see the day when no adoptable animal will be euthanized.
