Nov 4, 2016: SO SAD! SENIOR 17-YEAR OLD CAT DUMPED AT SHELTER BY OWNERS!

URGENT FOSTER OR ADOPTION NEEDED FOR OWNER SURRENDERED 17-YEAR OLD CAT!

Princess Leia is a very senior 17-year old cat whose owner dumped her at the shelter because they did not want to be bothered with her anymore. She is a gray tabby with some Persian in her and has beautiful yellow eyes. She is quite spry for her age and is in good health so why she was thrown away by her family just doesn't make sense.

She is fully vetted, just had a dental, and is very sweet and friendly. Princess loves getting her head scratched, and especially likes mealtimes and taking naps. She is okay with calmer dogs and is able to adjust to other cats with the right introduction.

If you are able to offer this poor kitty a home for her last few years, by adoption or fostering, please call Robin at 352-339-3352. Right now she is temporarily with the person who found her at the shelter and brought her out to safety.

About S.P.C.A. of North Florida

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small completely volunteer non-profit 501c3 organization run exclusively on private donations and no governmental assistance. Our primary goal is to find lifelong, forever homes for special needs unwanted cats and dogs. We also emphasize owner education and reducing the number of unwanted pets through spaying and neutering. We usually focus on cat and kitten rescue but will also have the occasional dogs, puppy, or even rabbit in our program who needs help.
We specialize in special needs pets who don't have much of a chance at finding the perfect home or any home at our local shelters. Whether their special needs are physical, medical, or emotional or behavioral, we feel that these animals are just in need of the right home and the right human who will understand them. If you are interested in helping with our special needs animals, please contact us. Many of the cats, kittens, puppies, and dogs need time, love, understanding, as well as daily medications and treatments while they heal. Adopting a special needs pet is a true rescue.
We are always looking for good temporary foster parents. During the holidays, Spring Break, summer vacation and other times of the year we lose a lot of foster families to other obligations and commitments so we are always in need of new foster families. Kittens will need a few weeks for socialization and time to grow. All they need is a safe room, such as a bed room, to play in and wait their turn at the PetsMart adoption site. All supplies are provided while you are fostering a kitten. We also need temporary foster homes for cats. Many also just require 1 room and some human interaction. Our puppies and dogs require a little more commitment and time, but if you can't commit for the next 12-16 years then maybe fostering is right for you. We would love to establish a larger dog program but need experienced and dedicated volunteers to help.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a shelter or location for visiting most of the pets. Most of our animals are in individual foster homes where they receive the individual care and attention they deserve and need. Several of the pets listed are at PetSmart waiting to be adopted. Please contact us via e-mail if you are interested in adopting or fostering and we will set up a time to meet. The adoption fee is $100 per cat or dog to help cover some of the veterinary care, testing, vaccinations, surgeries, food, litter, and medical needs. All of the adoption fees and donations go directly to help the animals in need
If you are interested in making a monitary donation that will go directly towards animal health care, please contact Keystone Heights Animal Hospital at 352-473-4966. They are able to take credit card donations over the phone and place the money directly onto the rescue account to help pay for medical expenses. You may also bring your items (not animals) for donation to Keystone Heights Animal Hospital in Keystone Heights, FL - Mon-Fri. 8:30am-5pm. We are always in need of towels, blankets, new kitty scratchers and toys, gently used or new kitty beds, carriers, and litter. You may also mail check donations made out to The SPCA of North Florida to P.O. Box 122 Putnam Hall, FL 32185. And of course, donation of your time is always appreciated, either by fostering a needy animal in your home or by donating your time on the weekends to help at our adoption site.

Our Adoption Process...

E-mail is usually the best way to contact us or you can call our adoption coordinator, Robin, at 352-339-3352 for more information. We will require you to fill out an application/questionnare form and sign an adoption agreement if and when an adoption is agreed upon. Adoption fees are $100 per pet. We are very selective when choosing homes for our needy animals. Many of our rescues have been through a lot of stress and sometimes injury in their short lives and our primary goal is to match the right animal with the right home.
