Facts about Ray

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Ray is a declawed tuxedo male. He is approximately 7 years old. Ray has a sad story. After his previous owners removed his claws, they let him outside. Then they moved away and left him behind to fend for himself. Not only did Ray not have his claws to defend himself, he is hard of hearing. So with two key protectors unavailable to him, he was in trouble. He hid from predators and scrounged for food in order to survive. Food was so scarce he would eat non-food items.

Adoption Fee: $85

Later down the road Ray found the neighborhood sucker for cats who began feeding him. But she noticed he would eat very little. After visits to the doctor it was determined he had a long piece of string entangled with his intestines after ingesting it out of starvation. Ray had surgery to remove the string over a year ago and he is now very healthy.

Time on the streets taught Ray not to trust other cats, so Ray must be an only cat. He loves people and laps and will make someone a wonderful pet. He has many years left in him. Please ask to meet him.

Our Adoption Process...

All of our pets are spayed or neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, dewormed, and given a flea preventative before they are available for adoption. Cats and kittens are also tested for feline leukemia and the feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) and must be negative to enter the adoption program.

Our adoption fee of $85 covers only a small fraction of the cost of rescuing, rehabilitating, and housing these homeless animals. Donations help us to provide veterinary care, medicine, vaccinations, food, kitty litter, and other supplies, so that the only limit on our foster caregivers is the size of their homes – not the size of their pocketbooks.
