Pumba was neutered on a catch and return program before it was discovered he was super friendly - hence his ear is clipped. Due to his FIV+ status, when he broke a tooth, the infection caused massive dental issues and he had to have most of his back teeth removed. He continues to eat both wet and dry food without any issues. He is doing very well now in a home with both other cats and several dogs, along with a 4 year old boy and 7 year old girl who are grandchildren to the foster mom that visit on the weekends. He is very affectionate with a laid back attitude. He is the perfect cat for just about any situation - so long as he gets occasional snuggles and gets to sleep in your bed :)
While Pumba is FIV+ he still lives a happy, healthy, life. If you have questions about FIV please contact us at email@example.com to hear about our "stop the FIV stigma" campaign

CAN YOU HELP US????
R.A.I.N. Rescue is desperately seeking foster homes for SMALL dogs, puppies, cats and kittens.
We currently need volunteers for these Departments:
Foster Homes, Transporters, Groomer, Adoption Center, Donation Station and Fundraisers.
FOSTERING: We take in small dogs, puppies, cats and kittens to foster.
The fosters DO NOT pay out of pocket for expenses while fostering ANY animals in our Rescue. The Rescue pays for everything necessary. We also accommodate for time away.
*Some of our best fosters have been the winter visitors, who may only be able to take in dogs for 3-4 months.
TRANSPORTERS: A person designated to take the dogs and cats for their vetting (spay/neuter etc.), grooming and sometimes to pick up and drop off at adoption events when the fosters are unable to bring them. Transporters may also pick up new strays/owner surrenders etc. and take them to their foster home. This position will pay mileage.
FUNDRAISERS: Anything to help bring in funds to our non-profit Rescue. You will earn 10% of the money brought in to help the animals for each event!
GROOMER: A skilled groomer, with their own grooming equipment, who can groom/bathe/clip nails on small dogs/puppies. We will supply the shampoo/towels etc. We will bring them to your location in the East Valley.
VOLUNTEERS AT ADOPTION CENTER (located inside PetSmart): Cleaning cat kennels (day and evening hours available), cat laundry (pick up and drop off), play time with cats, feeding cats, walking dogs, cleaning dog kennels, watering, feeding, quiet petting time and play time with dogs.
PHOTO POSTINGS: Cats and kittens that are adoption ready at the PetSmart Center. Take photos of cats and kittens and get information on them, post on three of our favorite sites online.
DONATION STATION: Someone to faithfully be at PetSmart and set up the donation table (table provided). The table will have items on it with information about our rescue, our business cards, volunteer job listings, a donation jar, and a donation basket for anyone wanting to donate misc. items (dog food/toys etc.) and small items that can be given out to those who donate. Flexible day(s) and time(s) can be discussed.
All these positions help the animals find forever homes. Please open your heart and possibly your home, costing you only time. Nothing out of pocket….and all from your heart. Many Thanks!!!!
