About Me: 
Hi! I’m Merlin! I was found homeless in a field with my two other brothers, but somebody found us and brought us to a safe place. I’m a little more on the shy side, but my foster family is helping me with this. I’m starting to come around more, and starting to love being held. My favorite hobby is to play with my foster moms toes when she is sleeping, but I especially enjoy eating! I love food! I have a whole lot of people and animals in my foster home that LOVE me! There’s a dog, which licks me too much, other resident cats that bop me on my head, and little kids that love to play toys with me! I’m looking for a nice family who will have patience with me because of my shyness, but will also play all the time with me when I open up.

About Mending Spirits Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

MENDING SPIRITS is a team comprised of committed volunteers, foster homes, licensed veterinarians, trainers and educators. We are able to successfully rescue animals from animal impound, high kill facilities, owner surrenders, strays and puppy mills then place them into well-paired, permanent homes. We serve as a rescue for the community while we educate and advocate responsible pet ownership, over population control, spaying/neutering, behavioral management, training, proper preventative and maintenance care.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption Process:

1. Search adoptable animals and fill out the application when you find one you want to meet.

2. Adoption coordinator will review application and check vet/personal references.

3. Foster schedules a “meet and greet.” This could take place at an adoption event, public place or foster's home.

4. If foster and adopter agree it’s a good fit, then an adoption home visit will be scheduled.

5. After home visit is approved, payment and adoption contract will be completed.

6. Once payment, adoption contract and age appropriate vetting are complete, the new owners can pick up their pet!

All dogs/cats are fully vetted through our partner clinics and will not be adopted out prior to being spayed/neutered*, microchipped**, vaccinated & tested, as age appropriate up to the day the adoption contract is signed and payment is made. All animals are giving wormer and heartworm preventative (species and age specific) while in foster care. Adoption fees are non-negotiable.

Adoption Fees are based on the animal's species, age, health and length in rescue. Their fee will be listed in their descriptions.

*Puppies must be at least 8 weeks old to be spayed/neutered before adoption. Kittens must be at least 8 weeks old and at least 2 pounds to be spayed/neutered before adoption.
**We do not microchip cats since we require them to be indoors.
