Binx was rescued from a hard life on the streets in Georgia in December 2016. This poor guy was struggling to survive all on his own, until a Good Samaritan trapped him to be neutered and to treat his head lacerations. Binx couldn’t be returned to his outdoor home because of his injuries and the risk of infection, so he was moved to a local shelter.

While this little 10-pound boy is shy after having a rough life as a baby, he loves people. He adores belly and head rubs. He can meow a lot at times as he found that was the best way to get people’s attention to feed him, but once you cuddle him he’s right at home. This strong boy has overcome so much- hunger, the cold, and injuries. He may have food, a warm shelter, and great doctors now, but he still needs a caring family to give his love to.

Unfortunately, Binx has tested positive for FIV, which is a slow virus that affects a cat's immune system over a period of years. FIV is a cat-only disease that cannot be spread to humans or other animals, and cannot be spread casually between cats (like in litterboxes, food and water bowls, or when snuggling and playing). Luckily, FIV cats most often live long, healthy and relatively normal lives with no symptoms at all.

The adoption fee for this cat is $150. If you are interested in adopting, please download our Adoption Questionnaire and email it to Lauren at!

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption process begins when you submit an adoption application either online or at an adoption event. The individual responsible for the dog you are interested in adopting - a position we call the “adoption coordinator” - will then set up a time to discuss your application over the telephone. The adoption coordinator will check your vet reference to make sure all current and past pets were kept up-to-date with their shots and medical care. The adoption coordinator will also set up a home visit with one of our trained volunteers. That individual will come to your home to ensure that it is a safe environment, to confirm that everyone in the home is on board with adopting a dog, and to discuss any other questions you may have about dog adoption!
