Thank you for your interest in our adoptable animals.  If you would like more information about this pet, see the Shelter information below.   We would love to help you rescue a perfect pet!



Francis was found as a stray on October 17th at the Birdneck Rd / Laskin Rd area of Virginia Beach.  He has a gorgeous deep orange colored coat and handsome deep gold eyes.  His finder gave us a glowing report:  

'This guy is one of the sweetest cats I've ever met....he is very approachable, very affectionate and knows a good home. He is in good shape, has a beautiful coat and loves to be petted and loves attention.  He would be a great cat for a loving family.  Also, he got along well with my two female cats, no aggression....'

We really appreciate when finders give us good information like this that we can pass along.  We have found while he has been with us that he can get a bit rough and tumbly and has been a bit too much with other cats in our colony, so we are recommending he be an only kitty.  If you are looking for a boy that is sweet, affectionate, family friendly and likes kids, look no further than Francis!  Francis is in our caged adoption room, already neutered and can come home on adoption day.  #1610-1871
