Declawed Lap Cat Needs a Home!

Hello there! I am Sophie! They say I am very sweet, affectionate, soft and cuddly and wonderful to hold. When I was only one, my owners threw me out in a December snowstorm to fend for myself. They were divorcing and didn’t want me. Then a young woman saw me at the side of the road that cold December day and rescued me. But… once again, two content years later, my life changed. I was left behind for several months in her foreclosed house with little to eat. She couldn’t take me with her.

I am hanging out in a foster home right now and I am pretty scared and confused. The nice lady that took me in has a resident cat and I have never been around other cats. I would need some time to figure out other cats or be an ‘only’ in a nice family. I’m keeping my chin up!

About Pets Bring Joy

About Our Rescue Group...

We are passionate about the fact that pets bring joy to the people who love them, and vice versa! Our full mission statement is presented on our website, petsbringjoy.org, but in a nutshell, we rescue adoptable animals (primarily cats) at risk from "kill shelters," emphasizing adult cats who often get passed over in favor of kittens. We support them through the kindness of volunteer foster homes, and work to find qualified, loving homes for them all.

We also encourage collaboration within the rescue community, working with smaller "grass roots" rescue organizations to help them with community outreach and fund-raising.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Most of our sponsored cats are cared for by foster volunteers in their homes throughout Northern Virginia. We arrange for approved adopters to meet our kitties in their foster homes, where the kitties are in their most relaxed and natural environment.

We are also delighted to have been chosen as the resident rescue organization for PetSmart's East Fairfax store, located at 9528 Main Street in Fairfax, Virginia 22031 (at the corner of Pickett Road and Main Street aka "Little River Turnpike"). You may *view* our kitties any time that the store is open (store phone: (571) 328-7770), but it's best if you contact us via email first so that we can arrange to have a PBJ volunteer meet you to open the cat room so that you can *interact* with them.

We regularly hold adoption events at the store on Saturdays ... please check our website, petsbringjoy.org, for our latest adoption schedule.

We also have animals housed at the PetMAC in DC. Please visit their website: petmac.org/dc; visit Lori at the PetMAC DC store 7 days a week or email Lori at rezqumee@gmail.com for more information.

Our Adoption Process...

We require completion of an initial on-line application; our evaluation process involves two phone interviews, a vet reference check, and a home visit.
