Facts about Riva

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Orange Or Red Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
*Adoption fee reduced for cats over one year of age!

Riva was abandoned at 4 months in her carrier on the doorstep of a local vet. Several weeks later she was adopted. After three years Riva's adopter went to an assisted living home and once again Riva is looking for her forever home. When she came back to CARE she had to have most of her teeth pulled due to gum disease. This sweet petite girl wants nothing more than to be loved and cuddle with you while you watch t.v. She will make a wonderful companion. Please fill out an online application and my foster mom will give you a call.

Our Adoption Process...

Prior to adoption, every CARE cat/kitten has received a thorough exam from a veterinarian, has tested negative for FIV/Felv (except as otherwise noted), been spayed/neutered, dewormed, given flea preventative, and been inoculated against distemper. Rabies vaccine is given if the feline is over 4 months. Any other desirable medical attention has also been provided. Also, each cat/kitten has spent its rescued time in a private home in foster care being loved and assessed for temperament and personality, needs, likes and dislikes.

After your approval by our volunteers, a legal contract is signed with an adoption donation attached (this donation helps defray the medical costs incurred); and, you receive a free vet office visit at a participating vet within the first week.
Adoption Fee is a Donation.
