Tony is a stray cat who is loving life in the Shelter. He has a warm bed, fresh water, endless food and lots of love and attention. He had some sort of growth on his tongue which was removed when he was neutered. The biopsy was negative for cancer but he may always have a lump on his tongue. He is not bothered by it and it will need to be monitored, but at this time nothing more needs to be done. We hope someone will be willing to adopt this sweet kitty and be willing to wait and see regarding the lump.



 
Here is the adoption process:
 
You must come to the Shelter to complete an application which is reviewed right away. If everything is okay you can meet any of the animals. All animals are $40, if they are not spay or neuter, there is a $35 refundable deposit that is returned upon proof of surgery. 
 
If Volunteers For Animals spayed or neutered the animal, we are suggesting adopters make a donation of $35 to help with the cost of the surgery which is significantly less than if you had to go to a vet. All of that donation will go directly towards spaying and neutering the next animal we take into the Shelter. You will be helping to 'Spay it Forward' and reduce the homeless pet population. 
 
We only accept cash or checks. Please bring a carrier for cats to go home in or you can purchase a nice cardboard carrier for $5 from us. If you live in Genesee County, all dogs must be licensed before they leave the Shelter which is done through your city/town clerk's office (typically M-F 9-5). Please bring a leash when you pick up your new friend. Our adoption hours are Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 1-3; Wednesday 7-9 and Saturday 11-1. 
 
If the cat or kitten is at Petco, you can go in anytime during Petco's store hours to complete an application and see the cat or kitten. Once a day a volunteer stops into the store to review applications and will call you with questions or let you know the adoption is approved. You can return to the store anytime to pay the adoption fee and pick up the cat or kitten. The adoption fee is $40, cash or check, and the animal must leave in a carrier. 
 
Thank you for considering a homeless animal.


About Volunteers For Animals

About Our Shelter...

Volunteers For Animals is a nonprofit and all volunteer organization which works in partnership with the Genesee County Animal Shelter by providing the many additional services for the benefit of dogs and cats at the shelter. We assist in the Shelter doing things such as completing adoptions, walking dogs, cleaning, and grooming. We cover the costs to spay and neuter cats and dogs, any vet care that is needed and the extras such as treats, blankets and toys. We organize fundraisers and maintain a website with photos and descriptions of all the available animals at the Shelter.
