Maurice's Story:
Maurice and his siblings were brought to the home of a colony caretaker by their Mom (on Mother's Day weekend!). All 4 were rescued and fostered; 3 have been adopted; Maurice is the last one waiting for a loving fureverhome of his very own.
Maurice is a sweet, gentle boy; he has mellowed into a young 'gentleman', content to lay nearby or on your lap. Maurice is playful and enjoys toys, especially if you play with him. He likes to have his own comfy 'spot' and is fine being left alone for awhile while you're busy. Maurice's favorite thing is to be held in your arms like a baby, stretching out and cuddling up while purring; he's even fallen asleep that way. He also likes tummy pets and will 'hold' your fingers in his paws. Maurice has quite the charming 'purrsonality' and will make a wonderful pet!
Maurice was born April 2016. He is up to date with shots, neutered, negative for FIV / FELV, and microchipped. Currently in the care of the Staten Island Council for Animal Welfare, he/she can be seen in the PetSmart Adoption Center 1520 Forest Avenue. Volunteers are available to introduce you to the cats/kittens on Saturdays from 2-5 and Sundays from 1-4. App'ts can be made if those times are not convenient for you.

About Staten Island Council for Animal Welfare

About Our Rescue Group...

Staten Island Council for Animal Welfare (SICAW) is a non-profit tax exempt organization founded in 1972 dedicated to the rescue, care and placement of stray and abandoned animals. Volunteer members rescue homeless animals roaming the streets, tend to their needs and place them in good homes. All pets are examined by Veterinarians, receive protective inoculations, necessary blood work, are spayed/neutered and are microchipped.
In 1996, SICAW established its own low cost spay/neuter program, Neuter Network. Each year millions of healthy dogs and cats are euthanized or abandoned, falling victim to hunger, disease and cruelty. This low cost program helps put an end to the misery of pet overpopulation. SICAW is also committed to furthering the education of the public about the importance of spaying/neutering and proper pet care.
All SICAW work is done by volunteers and monies received through contributions, membership and fundraising activities are used for animal care and services, advertising, printing and other expenses of administration.
