5y 15lb Yado Snowshoe is great w/ cats and children, a little scared of dogs but we are getting there!  Yado is so incredibly awesome pawesome, he has two volunteer notes. The first one says, “When I walked by Yado’s cage I could not help but stop, as I was amazed with his handsome markings and his gorgeous big blue eyes, that watched me with affection. He is a friendly, lovable guy who would rub against his cage to get your attention. He is playful, just watch him play with a feather, which is so cute. He will paw for you to give him some love, wanting you to rub his head. Don’t forget the body rubs which you will enjoy giving this affectionate guy. He will make a great friend.” Another volunteer writes, “Yado’s hilariously cute face and unique markings make him look like he’s a distant relative to Grumpy Cat, though Yado is anything but grumpy. He’ll scamper right up to you and jam his big blocky head into your hands and arms with affectionate force, gazing up at you with his big, soulful blue eyes.” If that doesn’t convince you, Yado is described as friendly, mellow and affectionate. He has lived with several other cats. They were surrendered due to their former owner moving and deciding not to take them along. Yado is neutered and at nearly 16 lbs., there’s a whole lot of this beautiful boy to love. Please be his hero by offering temporary or purrmanent safe haven. This is a gem!   Yado’s previous owner reports he is shy in the beginning around strangers and needs a few minutes to warm up to new people. He gently approaches them to sniff. He has lived with children and is tolerant of petting, but mostly keeps to himself. He has also lived with three other cats and they all lived in harmony with each other, engaging in play. He is fearful and hides around dogs. He was described as friendly, affectionate, and mellow and enjoys lounging around the home, sleeping next to the cats in the home. The owner says he loves to cuddle and play chase. Reaction to assessor: Yado was partially underneath his bedding, but was calm and relaxed when approached. Reaction when softly spoken to: Yado pokes his head forward and looks around. Reaction to cage door opening: Yado inches forward a little more and appears curious. Reaction to touch: Yado head-butts when touched and comes out from underneath his bedding. He leans in for petting and begins to purr. He is very affectionate throughout the interaction, but tends to look around his surroundings with wide-eyes. Reaction to pick up: Yado remains calm during pick up, but wiggles to be placed back down after a moment. Behavior Determination: Average Yado interacts with the observer, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. No known history of behavioral problems. This cat is showing behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents.

About Zani's Furry Friends--Northern Outpost

About Our Rescue Group...

Because of the pressing cage space dilemma, we take dogs and cats primarily from Animal Care & Control of NYC. If not for rescue and adoptions, more than the present 24,000 of the current 50,000 animals taken in yearly would not make it out alive. Our goal is to take as many animals as we can who make great family members/companions and give them a second chance. Temperament is our most important criteria. Ideally, all our animals are good w/ people of all ages and other animals (dogs/cats).
Our adoptees are either spayed or neutered, all UTD w/ shots/rabies vax, heartworm negative or feline combo negative, and microchipped. Most of our animals live in foster situations to help them reintegrate back into family life. We feel most animals prefer the company of other animals and hope our adopters consider giving pets to their pets. (We do apply the 2 kitty rule.)
Other times, we courtesy post for people who are obliged to surrender their animals but ask that they continue to foster their companions until appropriate new homes are found to limit the trauma.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Most of our foster animals are in foster homes in or around New York City where they can be seen via appointment w/ the foster family.

We sometimes participate in events sponsored by the Mayor's Alliance of NYC of which we are proud to say we are a participating organization.

Sometimes, unfortunately, our animals are still in the NYC Animal Care and Control facilities for which we desperately seek foster care.

Our Adoption Process...

There is an application, reference checks, home visits, an interview of adopters w/ adoptees, and an adoption donation is required.
