Call Ninja’s name and he’ll follow you anywhere! With his striking good looks, the former street kitty truly struck gold when he was rescued and taken into foster care. Happily putting some extra pounds on his frame and happily enjoying being petted (he’s not yet fond of being picked up and held), he’s also happily playing with the other cats. Now what sweet, soulful Ninja needs is a happily-ever-after ending to his story. But because he’s FIV positive, and because the virus can only be transmitted to other cats through deep bite wounds, his ideal fur-ever home would be cat-free or have another kitty there whose playing is gentle, never rough.
This is an excellent article on feline FIV: http://bestfriends.org/resources/fiv-cats-faqs
Animal Rescue of the Rockies believes that every pet should find a wonderful, caring home. To ensure each pet finds the best possible home, we ask that you fill out an adoption application form so we can learn more about you and your household. We review each application we receive and will contact you as quickly as possible. A home visit will be scheduled before any pet is adopted to a new home. Once a home visit has taken place and the adoption application has been approved, we will ask you to read and sign our adoption agreement form. Our adoption fees help cover the cost of spay/neuter, veterinary exams, vaccinations, microchipping, and foster care. Highly requested breeds help cover the vet costs incurred by some of our other cats, enabling us to save more lives!
If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an adoption application here . We want our pets to go to a lifelong new home, so thank you for your patience during the adoption process!
Please email ARRColorado@gmail.com for more information, as we can not accept calls at this time.
Our adoption process is:
1. Fill out our Adoption Application online.
2. We'll contact you to schedule a home visit.
3. If the pet looks like a great match, fill out our Adoption Agreement online (or Foster-to-Adopt Agreement), pay the Adoption Fee, and arrange to pick up your new furry family member!
