Facts about Bernie

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Orange Or Red
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 16db071
  • Hair: Short
When I first met this family, I noticed that one particular kitten seemed the most brave and curious out of the litter. I said I'll foster that one, he will be fun! The kittens at that time were only a few we​e​ks old, but this one was on the move. I came to name him Bert, his Mom and three kittens all have Muppet or Sesame Street names. Bert has two brothers, Ernie, who I also have, and Gonzo who is being fostered by another volunteer.
Bert continues to be the brave and curious one. I have several adult cats and a dog. Bert made immediate friends with everyone when he was old enough to be taken from his mom along with his brother, Ernie.
He is so sweet and friendly. He'd be an awesome addition to a lot of situations, as he is a pretty fearless little boy! He really is a lot of fun.
He's going on 4 months old now, he's fully vetted, microchipped, and ready to meet his new friends and family​! If you'd like to meet Bert, please email Bert is located in Huntsville, AL.

About Friends of Rescue - Knoxville, TN

About Our Rescue Group...

Friends of Rescue is a certified 501(c)(3) organization formed in 2009, consisting of volunteers who are devoted to saving shelter animals that are in danger of euthanasia. Southern shelters have a constant overflow of dogs and cats, little funding, and limited space. Once the animals arrive at the shelter, they have very little time. It is our goal to help save these adoptable animals and find loving individuals/families who will provide committed, FORever homes. We are NOT professional trainers or animal behaviorists; simply volunteers who are trying to save these animals from euthanasia. Each animal in our program is in a foster home and receives all age-appropriate vetting while in our care.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our animals are mostly fostered in northern Alabama. But we have many wonderful adopters who come from the Tennessee area to adopt our wonderful adoptables.
