Umbrella of Hope 'Be Our Pet'



Special Needs Kitten

 ***PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION IN ITS ENTIRETY.  If you cannot be bothered to read what we have written regarding the home we are looking for then we cannot be bothered to have one of our all-volunteer team respond***

Daisy Duke is part of our Cats of Hazzard litter.  You can follow them on their own page on Instagram @catsofhazzard.  Daisy is not ready for adoption quite yet, but we are searching for her perfect home in the interim.

We are raising funds to cover the costs of sending these cats to specialists here:  https://www.gofundme.com/catsofhazzard or you can PayPal us at www.paypal.me/UOH

Daisy was born around 9/1/2016 with several defects to the bones in her hind limbs.  She has tentatively been diagnosed with bilateral femoral head hypoplasia plus tibial and metatarsal agensis/hypoplasia... pretty much this means she is missing bones in her lower legs.

This does not stop her.  She runs, scoots, climbs cat trees, wrestles with the other kitties and purrs like she has a motor in her throat.  Her only restriction is that she MUST be indoor-only unless directly supervised in a contained area (watching you garden while you are outside with her in a fenced yard and going back inside when you do).  

She DOES use the litterbox.  Due to her size (she is 1 lb at six weeks old), she is currently unable to climb into a regular one, so we have made her a modified one.  We expect that once she is ready for adoption she will have grown enough to use a regular litterbox.  

She LOVES other cats and loves to wrestle with them.  She also loves the pitbull that belongs to her foster mom and should be fine with dogs who are gentle with cats.  She also loves people.  

While she is not quite ready for adoption because she is too young AND we are trying to get her seen by the specialists at the local Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital at UC Davis to ensure that she will be fine long-term and does not need any interventions... we are accepting interest on her.

We are located in the San Francisco Bay Area of California.  Normally, we expect adopters to come to us to adopt.  However, we would be willing to raise the funds to escort her in the cabin of an airplane to any major US airport to get her to a forever home if that home was STELLAR or if she was going to live with someone who has the same condition (or a similar one) that she does.

We DO expect adopters of this litter to keep up on their social media accounts and this is a condition of their adoption (we can teach you) because we are huge proponents of special needs adoptions and we need animals like the Cats of Hazzard to be out there and be proud and show other people that being different is okay and that adopting an animal with special needs is NOT scary.  We want people to be inspired to adopt the animals who are not 'perfect' (although perfect is relative) so that animals like Daisy have the option of being adopted and not euthanized.  

She will be spayed, microchipped and fully vaccinated prior to adoption.  She is free of parasites.  We hope to have her evaluated at UC Davis by a specialist in the near future.

Interested parties should send a DETAILED email to beourpet@gmail.com and we can start the conversation to see if your home is a good match for her and work out the details.  We expect she will be ready to go to his new home in December.

Umbrella of Hope does not have any strict rules on ages of children because all children are different, but our best approximation is that this animal would do best with children over the age of 5

Umbrella of Hope is a non-profit animal rescue based out of Pittsburg, CA that rescues animals off death row from local shelters. We offer rebates of adoption fees after completion of obedience classes and CGC titles. 

Also, ask us about our seniors for seniors program, where we adopt animals 5 years or older to qualified homes with a $5 donation as an adoption fee. All animals are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, treated for parasites and given any additional treatments (dental work, bloodwork etc) as recommended by our vet. Some of our senior animals have sponsorships for their food/vet care/medicine for the rest of their life at our vet in Pittsburg, CA (94565)

 Adoptions to veterans of the US Armed Services are ALWAYS free to thank you for your service.  Other retired public servants, please let us know what career you retired from and we can let you know if we offer any discounts for your adoption

Please send an email to the Umbrella Of Hope Animal Director with any inquiries at beourpet@gmail.com. Detailed emails will be answered first.  

We thank Maddie's Fund for their sponsorship, Well Pet Vet Clinic for providing most of our veterinary services, Lovely Grooming for our grooming needs, and Delta Dog Camp for training. We thank Memoirs of a Dog and Share the Joy Photography for the beautiful portraits of many of our animals and a special thanks to volunteer photographers Barbara, Kristy, Christine and Natalie.  Please support these businesses for supporting rescue!

About Umbrella of Hope

About Our Rescue Group...

Umbrella of Hope exists to rescue, rehibilitate, and rehome animals from shelter situations with a focus on East Contra Costa County, California. Our goal is to reduce the euthanasia of adoptable animals through increased adoptions of those animals already born. Help increase public safety by reducing the number of strays and feral animals through population control who might carry disease or pose other dangers to the community. Provide resources to pet owners to enable them to be responsible forever guardians of their companion animals. To increase public awareness of homeless pets, encourage spay and neuter of companion animals, and promote adoption for the acquisition of family pets.
