Excuse me...I mustache you a question!  Would you like to take me (and my mustache) home??  Because I'd certainly love to go home with you! I'm Amelia and I'm a lovely girl with unusual peridot green eyes. I'm very 'people-centric', I love to hang out with you.  Foster Mom says I am a great house companion. She loves that I chirp a greeting when she walks in the room. I am very playful -- my favorite toy is any wine cork, regardless of vintage. But crinkle balls and anything on the end of a string is also lots of fun. I have great house manners and vacuum cleaners, blenders, they don't faze me! Having guests? I love guests. I will walk right up to greet your dinner guests, and when they go home, I will lay at your feet when you are washing the dishes. Foster mom says I have medium to high-energy, cause I want to play in the Morning and the Night! But turn the lights out and I know its bedtime. Got other cats? That's okay but they should be ready to play! 

I am enjoying the hospitality of the staff and fosters at the adoption center at the Springfield Petsmart. Stop on by and see me anytime the store is open 9AM-9PM at 6535 Frontier Dr, Springfield, VA 22150 Phone: (703) 922-4990 For a meet and greet stop by the adoption event on 
Sundays from 12:30-4:30.

About Fancy Cats Rescue Team, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Fancy Cats Rescue Team was founded to provide the community a "safety net" for cats and kittens that are abused and abandoned, or added to the euthanasia list at the shelters that we are currently participating with. We are a 501 (c) (3) Nonprofit Organization and participate with the United Way/CFC #8929. The goal is to have no kill shelters in place. Education and responsible pet ownership are the foundation of our organization. Our program provides literature, counseling, referral services and educational resources to families and individuals needing guidance. Teaching people responsible pet guardianship by spay and neutering their pets, behavioral modification and health concerns. We also provide a mentoring environment for our youth volunteers where they can learn the rewards of community service while caring for animals that need their gentle, loving kindness. They also interact with the community providing self-confidence and the ability to interact with a variety of cultures and diverse backgrounds. Once an animal is received into our program, they remain with us until a safe, appropriate home is found. They are never euthanized based on their age or space limitations. They are given appropriate medical care, immunizations, spays or neuters and endless hours of tender, loving care. We are an all-volunteer organization with no paid staff. We are funded by community donations, 91% goes toward the care and well being of our animals. Our adoption fees help offset our veterinary bills.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adopters fill out an application that screens for problems that may be detrimental to our cats and kittens. Once the adopter is approved we provide veterinary referrals which help with low cost spays or neuters for the kittens that are too young at the time of adoption. We are always available to help with behavioral issues that arise. We provide numerous information sheets in our adoption folders, plus the medical background of each cat. The only fees involved with our program are adoption fees that offset our veterinary bills.
