Meet Rufus!

Rufus is an 8 month old brown spotted tabby with a sweet round face and dark, contrasting markings. He came to us as a very nervous kitty but has come a long way since then - he is still a little bit shy and may take extra time to warm up to him new family, but in time, he is a great companion kitty. Rufus seems to take comfort in other cats and may do best with a feline sibling to show him the ropes. He may also do better with only older children in the home. To adopt Rufus, fill out an application right away at you are interested in meeting or adopting this cat/kitten, please fill out our application here: .

About Wave Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Wave Animal Rescue was created in September 2014. We are a small but growing home based foster group of dedicated volunteers.

All Wave animals are spayed or neutered and up to date on tests and vaccinations prior to adoption. Aside from these usual veterinary costs, we also incur vet bills for special needs animals such as Frosty, the little kitten who came to us blind, pregnant moms such as Lady Jane and their litters and other needs that occur.

We are always looking to add to our volunteers, whether it be new fosters, volunteers to help with adoption events, fundraising and administrative help. Donations of crates, blankets, cat food (canned and dry), cat toys, cat litter or cash are always greatly appreciated. If you would like your donation to go towards the care/vet bill of a specific cat, we will make that happen.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process starts with our adoption application which can be filled out here:

Once the potential adopter's application is received and approved, it will be forwarded to the foster parent of the cat/kitten that the adopter is inquiring about. The adopter will be contacted within three business days regarding the status of their application and/or to set up a meet and greet.

If the meet and greet goes well and the adoption is approved the adopter will need to agree to and sign our adoption contract, sign a disclosure form, and pay our $125.00 adoption fee. The adopter will also receive a copy of the vet records of the adopted cat.
