Facts about Ginger

  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 32159045

Ginger is described by her foster family as a "very sweet cat that loves getting her head, nose, and cheeks rubbed." Ginger is the mother of Sporty, Posh, and Scary Spice, and was a wonderful mother to them. She loves stretching out in her cage and watching as people walk by, reaching through her cage trying to get someones attention. She would prefer to be the only cat in the home and have all the attention to herself. Won't you come meet her?

Our Adoption Process...

We set our adoption fees based on differential pricing, meaning our fees vary and can range from "You Pick The Price" to $250. Most adult cats are "You Pick The Price" and hounds and pitbulls are $35. Fees include spaying or neutering, initial vaccines, deworming, microchip and registration, a free physical exam from an area veterinarian, and one month of free veterinary health insurance. We will also provide a starter bag of Science Diet pet food and a collar, leash and other supplies may be purchased at our Adopt & Shop Retail Store. All animals are spayed or neutered before leaving with adopters; usually you can take your new companion animal home the same day you visit the shelter, otherwise within 24-72 hrs.
