Ambrose's Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Ambrose's Story...
Hi ya! My name is Ambrose. I am a friendly, social and outgoing cat in need of a forever home. Aren't I handsome devil? I have short-length orange tabby fur and sparkling, soulful eyes. I have a very affectionate and loving personality. I'm calm and laid back, just a go-with-the-flow kind of dude. I love attention and being brushed and petted. I get along well with dogs who like cats, people of all ages and other cats. I weigh just over 11 lbs. and I'm 3-4 years old. I am litterbox trained and well behaved. I like to play with toys and to lounge around the house, soaking up the sun that streams through the windows. I am marked as a "special needs" kitty because I tested positive for FIV. The Rescue is now doing a more in-depth test to make sure it wasn't a false positive test result - that happens sometimes. It's also possible that I was vaccinated for FIV at one time in my life, which means I'll forever test positive for it even though I don't have it. FIV is virus that affects the immune system of a cat. It is not contagious to people or to other species, like dogs. It can be passed to other cats through a deep bite wound. But with quality food and proper care, I will live a long, healthy life. Adoption fee: $60. Adopt a pair: $90. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, spay/neuter, microchip and 60 days of free pet insurance.

Adoption Process: Complete the application at www.pawsforliferescue.org. We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the mandatory, minimum two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. You will pay the non-refundable adoption fee at the start of the two-week adjustment period. This pending period allows your new dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ambrose, a Troy Domestic Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Troy, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Troy.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Troy already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Troy breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Troy paves the way for another one to be saved.
