Handsome Adult American Short Hair Red/Orange Tabby Male FIV+

Fred is a very handsome 5 year old American Short Haired red (dark orange) tabby neutered male.  He is very sweet and loves pets and attention and will ask for attention.  He was rescued after being abandoned at a Vet's Office where he lived in a kennel for quite some time.  He gets along well with his docile FIV+ roommates, esp. his buddy Barney, but they are not bonded.  He is FIV+ which is the Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. It is only contagious to other cats.  It means his immune system is a little weaker than average, but most cats with FIV live long healthy lives if they are in a safe, indoor only, calm environment . They have been adopted with other FIV+ cats and many people have adopted FIV+ cats who have non-FIV cats without their non-FIV cats contracting it.  Please discuss with your Veterinarian to help you decide.  There is a vaccination for FIV that you can discuss with you Veterinarian as well.  He does not like dogs at all and should not be around them.  He should also be O.K. with cat-friendly children.   Come meet this sweet & handsome boy.

About Angels With Paws

About Our Shelter...

We believe ALL animals have the right to life.
Angels with Paws 501c3 charity runs a mostly cage-free, Limited Intake Rescue Shelter that since opening in 2004 has provided over 9,500 homeless, unwanted, abused, neglected and abandoned cats, kittens (and some dogs through foster care) with rescue, Veterinary and other care, rehab and a place to live until they are adopted. Many of them are injured, ill, disabled, and older and would be turned away or put down by other shelters. For these animals Angels with Paws is their last hope. This is amazing work considering we operate out of a converted Fast Food building, have very limited resources, few volunteers, no promotion, and no on-site Veterinarian. We educate the public on responsible pet ownership, and offer advice in caring for pets with the hope that they can be kept in their own homes instead of being relinquished to a shelter, the need to Spay/Neuter and the cruelty of declawing.

Angels with Paws does not receive any Government, Corporate or any regular funding. We do not have an on-site Veterinarian, and have to pay for our Veterinary Care and Supplies. Nearly all of our funding comes from private donations.

Our dream is to see the day when no adoptable animal will be euthanized.
