Foster mom's report:  Amelia is a young tomboy with lovely green eyes!  She is very people-oriented and follows you around the house.   She gets along well with other cats, and loves to play.  Her favorite toy is a wine cork (any vintage) and anything on the end of a string.  She will play independently, but is ready to play with a person anytime.   She has excellent house manners;  tidy with the litter box and not destructive.  She greets your dinner guests, and then will lay at your feet when you do the dishes.  She is not fazed by house 'stuff' -- blenders, vacuum cleaners, etc.  She has a strong personality, and will sometimes 'play bite' at your ankles when she wants to play, but never, ever hard.   She knows the word 'no' and immediately behaves when you say it.   Although she is not a lap cat, Amelia is an excellent companion who really likes being around people.

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.
