Nemo was originally rescued from a local kill shelter as a baby kitten during the height of kitten season last year. He became ill, as so often is the case, especially with the kittens, and when he got better, his eyes were still drippy. They got better and worse and better and worse and although this didn't affect his eating or playing or growing in any way, it did affect his adoptability. Kittens with drippy eyes scare folks because they are afraid they are sick and usually this is the case; however, Nemo is now over a year old and a healthy happy boy in all ways. Nemo is a funny guy. His foster mom adores orange tabby males and Nemo is no exception. He is outgoing and as sweet as he can be. He LOVES the dogs in his foster home and is constantly rubbing against them. Nemo loves everyone and everything. He grooms the cats in his foster home, too. He is playful and loving and follows his foster mom around like a puppy, never far from where she is and always involved in what she is doing. Due to his eye issue, Nemo has been in foster care for most of his young life. He is so deserving of a wonderful family where he can love and be loved. If your forever family could use a little orange tabby love, please consider finding Nemo! He would be so appreciative and you will, too, when you bring him home and get to know him. Nemo is amazing!

NOTE: Nemo is listed as "Special Needs" because the average adopter will not want him due to his eye issue; however, he is technically not special needs in that he will not require any special care or medical attention. His eyes look worse on some days than others and there are days when they are almost normal, but this is who he is and it is not fair to him to keep him in foster care longer waiting for this issue to completely resolve. It has improved immensely from what it was so hopefully it will continue to improve, but we cannot guarantee that it will not flare up periodically. At this point, we have decided this is who he is and part of his unique sweet self. There is no reason he can't be in a forever home. PLEASE consider this amazing boy!

For further information please contact us at or call 214-676-2434. Anyone interested in our cats will be required to fill out an adoption application. All our cats will be spayed or neutered, microchipped and current on vaccinations. We do ask for a $140 adoption donation. To fill out an application on line, just go to and click on the Adoption Application link.

About Furry Friends Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Furry Friends Animal Rescue

We are a new group started in 2013 by a large group of experienced rescuers - we wanted to be part of an ethical rescue group which would allow us to help homeless cats and dogs in the North Texas area. We value all the experience and knowledge brought to this group by the volunteers so the group is member based. We welcome new volunteers and fosters, both experienced or new to rescue. You can contact us by email or through our website - we will get back to you as soon as possible.

If you are interested in meeting any of our cats or dogs, just send us a an email or fill out an Adoption Application on our website. The Adoption Application is not a commitment just a means of introduction. We look forward to hearing from you!

Our Adoption Process...

We do not adopt on a first-come, first-served basis - it is our goal to find the right home for the cat or dog as well ensuring that the cat or dog is the right match for it's new family. A win/win situation.
For dogs, we require an application, home visit for approved application, and home trial period to ensure that it's a good fit for the dog and the family.
For cats, we require an application, but do allow same-day adoptions. Our goal is to find our fosters a "forever" home.
Our Adoption Fees are $140 for cats and $175 for dogs.

All our cats and dogs are fully vetted prior to adoption - this includes all age-appropriate vaccinations, feline leukemia/aids testing, heartworm tests, deworming, spay or neuter, microchips and other medical treatment as required.

You can fill out an Adoption Application online on our website.
