Facts about Layla

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tortoiseshell
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
SWEET SENIOR LOOKING FOR A SPECIAL HOME <3 Sweet, friendly Layla is about 11 yrs, front declawed and is so incredibly loving. She's friendly, loves the companionship of people, is great with dogs, but we aren't sure about kitties. Her previous owners brought her to the vet because she had a wound on her neck, which they didn't want to treat and wanted to euthanize her. The clinic staff felt she was such a loving kitty they offered to take her if the owner would surrender her to the clinic, which they did. Angels on Wheels was called and asked if we could take her, which we couldn't say no.

Layla's wound appeared to be a bite wound from another animal. The owner didn't know so that's just a guess. She was treated at the clinic, but the wound didn't heal. Our vets surgically put in a drain, then treated her with an antibiotic shot. 2 weeks later it still wasn't healing so she spent a few more days at the vet, they did a culture of the wound, and started her on Clavamox. That seemed to work because she is so much better now and her wound is healing.

More bad new for this sweet girl. Out of no where, her vertigo went off. She began walking as if she was drunk. They did x-rays found nothing, did some special tests found nothing, no ear polyps were found, and no evidence of a ruptured ear drum, her blood work was fine. At this point we are not sure why the imbalance, and she may have it for the rest of her life. That doesn't stop her from getting around though. She uses the stairs, uses the kitty box with no problem, eats, drink even plays. If she turns too quickly she will fall over. She's great with dogs, but because of her vertigo problem, we feel a home with a senior dogs or smaller dogs who are calm. We don't want her to be knocked over by large dogs given she can't move out of the way quickly.

We did have an adopter for Layla, but she travels a lot and didn't feel given Layla's condition she was the right match. The adopter offered to donate the adoption fee so that Layla could be sponsored for a family who would be a better match for her.

Layla is being fostered in a home Plainfield, which is where you would go meet her with an approved adoption application. You can find find the adoption application by going to our website at, and clicking on the applications tab. We do not have a physical building so there are no viewing hours, thus the reason for the application needs to be submitted prior to making an appointment for a meet and greet with this adorable kitten.

Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but is required prior to making arrangements for a meet and greet as all of our animals are cared for in homes. We can't schedule meet and greets until the application is submitted and approved. We don't have a building so there are no viewing hours. All of our animals are cared for in foster homes by wonderful families who volunteer their time to save these precious souls. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

The adoption fee is sponsored for that special family who would like to give her a forever home.

Angels on Wheels Animal Rescue is a 501(c)(3), non-for-profit, state licensed organization. We are composed of animal-loving volunteers that work vigorously to make a difference in the lives of abandoned animals. We are dedicated to finding and saving neglected and unwanted animals from high kill shelters on death row to give them a second chance for life.

Our purpose is to keep these babies out of already crowded Animal Control Facilities, to provide them with proper medical treatment and then wonderful homes. If you need assistance with Spaying and Neutering your animals, please contact us.

We can't save these babies without your help. Please consider fostering, helping with transporting animals, volunteering by feeding and watering the kittens at Petco, helping with adoption days or donating; either monetary, old pet carriers, blankets, food, newspaper, paper towels, toys, the list is endless. Most importantly please, please spay and neuter all of your pets. It takes two to have a litter.

We may not be able to change change the world, but together, we can change the world for some.

Thank you for viewing our animals, considering adoption instead of buying and for your generousity.

Please see our website for more information about the adoption process.

Every day 10,000 humans are born in the U.S. and each day 70,000 puppies and kittens are also born. As long as these birth rates exist, there will never be enough homes for all of the animals. As a result, millions of healthy, loving cats, dogs, kittens and puppies face early deaths as a form of animal control. Others are left to fend for themselves against automobiles, the elements, other animal and cruel humans. You can help just by spaying and neutering your pets, don't ever buy from a pet store, as almost every one of them uses some form of a pupy mill, and remind people to support and ADOPT from a shelter or rescue. Thank you.
