Facts about Lynx - Chelsea

  • Breed: Domestic Longhair
  • Color: Tiger Striped
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Long
Lynx is a 7 month old long haired beauty. She is very shy, but loves scratches and pets from her people. She was rescued from a pound through a college when it was found that she was FIV positive at 4 months old. Her foster mom thought she got her antibodies from her mother and that the FIV would go away after 6 months, but Lynx didn't get that fortunate. FIV positive cats live a full and normal life. Some are a little bit more prone to colds but the rest live just like any negative cat. Lynx has been a very healthy girl since she has come into foster. She can also live happily with negative cats. FIV is only spread by deep bite wound and with proper introduction this should not be an issue especially with her age. She will need an adjustment period to get used to her new home, but she will be a great addition for someone. If you are interested in this sweet girl, please fill out an application today!

****Her adoption fee is $50****.

The Animal Rescue Project is committed to the best possible veterinary care for the pets it rescues and it is looking for adopters who will be similarly committed.
All cats and kittens are given a general check-up when they enter our program. They receive medical to remove any intestinal parasites (worms), fleas, and mites they may have. All cats and kittens are feline leukemia tested, and cats at least a year old are also tested for feline immuno virus. Each cat or kitten receives the FVRCP vaccine; if a kittens stay with us is long enough, two or three boosters will be given after the initial vaccination.

Most cats and older kittens are spayed or neutered before adoption. In the case of kittens not old enough to be safely sterilized, a $25 deposit is required at the time of adoption and is refunded to the adopter with proof of sterilization.

The Animal Rescue Project requires every adopter to establish an active relationship with a veterinarian no later than 10 days after adoption. Adopters will receive a plan for routine veterinary care at the time of adoption and are expected to work with their vet to complete the plan.

About Animal Rescue Project

About Our Rescue Group...

Animal Rescue Project is led and run by volunteers -- over 150 of us.

Most of the dogs, cats, kittens, and puppies we rescue come from pounds. We provide quality care for our rescue animals until they're adopted, no matter how long that takes. We do initial checkups, spay or neuter, bring our rescue animals up to date on shots, and provide other necessary medical treatment. We've treated animals for heartworm, parvo, broken legs, and more. Our adoption fees only sometimes cover the cost of care until the animals are treated. Donations are welcome!

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our shelter is located at 219 Peekstock Dr in Kalamazoo Michigan.
Our open hours are:
Monday through Friday 2p.m. to 7p.m.
Saturdays 11a.m. to 4p.m.

We can also make appointments if needed on Sundays.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process begins with meeting the animal or filling out an adoption application form, whichever step you want to start with. We use the form and our conversation with you to see if you and the dog or cat you're considering look like a good match. We'll talk to you about what you're looking for in a pet and tell you what we know about the animal you're interested in.

If it looks like a good match and you want to adopt, we ask you to complete an adoption contract. In this contract, you agree to provide all the necessary care for the animal. Adoption fees cover medical checks, spaying or neutering (we provide a voucher for this if the animal is too young to be spayed or neutered), vaccinations to date, worming, and other medical treatment done. We may need to check with your landlord to see if pets are allowed, but you can usually take home your new pet the same day.
