Facts about Celeste

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Celeste is a sweet girl whose owner passed away unexpectedly, leaving behind five cats and a dog for the family to care for.

Pets Bring Joy has taken Celeste and her brother Banks (see separate listing) into our care, and are seeking separate adoptive homes for them both individually (they are not bonded).

Celeste is 10 years old -- equivalent to a person in their mid-fifties: middle-aged, definitely not senior! :o) We've performed a thorough wellness evaluation upon her arrival, and she is ready to settle into a new home.

Celeste is extremely loving with her foster dad -- sits on his laps, sleeps in bed with him, follows him around like a dog -- but does not show well to new folks (she's very fearful at first meeting), and so we are looking for someone willing to foster her first to learn how wonderful she is before committing to adopt her.

Please help PBJ to fight age discrimination by considering Celeste as your next feline family member.

About Pets Bring Joy

About Our Rescue Group...

We are passionate about the fact that pets bring joy to the people who love them, and vice versa! Our full mission statement is presented on our website,, but in a nutshell, we rescue adoptable animals (primarily cats) at risk from "kill shelters," emphasizing adult cats who often get passed over in favor of kittens. We support them through the kindness of volunteer foster homes, and work to find qualified, loving homes for them all.

We also encourage collaboration within the rescue community, working with smaller "grass roots" rescue organizations to help them with community outreach and fund-raising.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Most of our sponsored cats are cared for by foster volunteers in their homes throughout Northern Virginia. We arrange for approved adopters to meet our kitties in their foster homes, where the kitties are in their most relaxed and natural environment.

We are also delighted to have been chosen as the resident rescue organization for PetSmart's East Fairfax store, located at 9528 Main Street in Fairfax, Virginia 22031 (at the corner of Pickett Road and Main Street aka "Little River Turnpike"). You may *view* our kitties any time that the store is open (store phone: (571) 328-7770), but it's best if you contact us via email first so that we can arrange to have a PBJ volunteer meet you to open the cat room so that you can *interact* with them.

We regularly hold adoption events at the store on Saturdays ... please check our website,, for our latest adoption schedule.

We also have animals housed at the PetMAC in DC. Please visit their website:; visit Lori at the PetMAC DC store 7 days a week or email Lori at for more information.

Tango Pet Depot... is another place to see some of our kitties. Their store is located at 11213 Lee Hwy Suite N in Fairfax, VA 22030. Please visit their website at or check them out on Facebook.

Our Adoption Process...

We require completion of an initial on-line application; our evaluation process involves two phone interviews, a vet reference check, and a home visit.
