Facts about Leo

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tan Or Fawn (Mostly)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Lucky Leo came to us in June after the Good Sam who was helping this street cat in Mansfield could no longer afford the extensive oral surgeries Leo required. When Leo was found in the streets, his mouth was so ulcerated that his tongue had to be sewn back together! This sweetheart was in pain and he needed help ASAP. A volunteer helped drive him to us in Cleveland, and within a week, Leo had the surgery he needed. Left with only 2 teeth, Leo made a very good recovery.

Leo is an incredibly sweet cat, and we really hope there is a special person out there who sees past Leo's physical quirks and adds him to the family. Leo does not want for much - a cat tree by a window for bird watching, plenty of cuddles, and 3 square meals a day. He will likely always be a "messy eater" and need his mouth wiped after meals. And yes, he drools, which personally we find endearing. He will always need to eat canned food due to his mouth issues. Leo is at least 7 years old. His blood work was great, and he gets along well with fellow foster kitties.

MAWL's cats are spayed/neutered, leukemia/FIV-tested, dewormed, microchipped and up-to-date on vaccines. The cats we offer for adoption are usually the offspring of feral cats or house cats that have been abandoned by their former owners. Unless otherwise noted, our cats are available to inside homes only. We prefer to adopt our animals to residents of Ohio. An adoption donation of $75.00 helps to cover the veterinary fees.

About Mid-Ohio Animal Welfare League

About Our Rescue Group...

Created in 2005, we are a non-profit volunteer-operated animal advocacy organization originally based in Mansfield, OH. Our director lives in the Cleveland-area. When able, we foster companions in our home. We believe all animals should be treated with compassion & respect. We advocate a vegan lifestyle.

Our mission is to protect and promote value and respect for all animals. We act as a voice for the voiceless creatures through advocacy and community education. Our main purpose is to provide affordable spay/neuter services to our community with the assistance of Rascal Unit neutermobile.

When able, we accept animals into our foster home-based rescue. Animals that enter our rescue are kept for as long as it takes to find forever homes - which can be a matter of a week to many months. We primarily pull from high-kill pounds/shelters. MAWL is an advocate of feral and stray cats and offers TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) services to Richland County as able.

As a recognized 501(c)3 non-profit organization, your donations are tax-deductible. We operate solely on donations, so please consider supporting our efforts.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a shelter. In order to meet any of our adoptable cats & dogs, we must have a completed adoption application before a "Meet & Greet" can be arranged. On occasion, we hold adoption events. It is best to view our Facebook page or contact us directly to see if any events are scheduled.

Please note in the biography where the foster is located. It is the responsibility of the potential adopter to travel to meet the companion - we unfortunately do not have the funds to travel outside of our hometowns for meet & greets.

Our Adoption Process...

We require an adoption application before we can consider a family for adoption. Our cat adoption fee is $75, which helps offset the vet care - sterilization, vaccines, deworming, FIV/Leukemia-testing & microchip. Our dog adoption fee is $175 and covers the sterilization, vaccines, deworming heartworm test (if age appropriate), and microchip.

A home visit and references will be performed. We are volunteers, so it could take 24 hours to return any email inquiry.
