Facts about Rosemary

  • Breed: Domestic Longhair

  • Age: Adult

  • ID#: 11460741
  • Hair: Long

Miss Kitty--CATV, Channel 9: My, you are a pretty little long-haired girl! How old are you? And is there a special story to how you got your name?
Rosemary: I’m a little over a year old as of now -- May 2017. And thanks for the compliment! I do think I’m rather attractive! Yes, my name came from St. Mary’s Church in Oak Ridge. The SARG people found me when I was a starved stray in the church parking lot. My name is a combination of St. Mary’s and rosary.
Miss Kitty: We hear that you’re an active little girl. What’s your favorite activity?
Rosemary: My favorite activity would probably be eating. Before SARG rescued me, I thought I’d never get enough to eat. But after eating -- probably playing. I do love fishing rod things, especially if a human is on the other end of it to make it move around. And I like supervising laundry and loading the dishwasher and also sitting on the screened porch watching birds and chipmunks. I sort of like to play with cats in my foster home, but most of them are older and don’t want to play as much as I do.
Miss Kitty: What would be your ideal 'forever' home? Any thoughts on that?
Rosemary: Oh, I’d be happy any place where I can run and play, where I have toys, food, windows and laps -- I love human laps. I like other kitties too, especially ones that want to play. I haven’t met any dogs yet, but I’m pretty easy going -- I think I’d get along with them too.
Miss Kitty: Rosemary, we wish you much luck in finding your special forever home!

About Shelter Animals Rescue Group (SARG)

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small, all-volunteer, 501(c)3 nonprofit rescue group, with emphasis on mixed-breed dogs and cats. We adopt primarily from our local animal shelter, although we occasionally take in hardship cases. We also assist individuals in our area by advertising on our website animals they need to rehome, if the animals have been spayed/neutered. We gratefully accept donations, and we need volunteers for many events. More than anything, we need foster homes.

Come Meet Our Pets...

As a volunteer group, we do not have a facility. Our animals reside in foster homes and boarding kennels. We show them regularly at the PetSmart store on Parkside Drive in Knoxville the second Friday of each month, 4 to 8 p.m., as well as by appointment.

Our Adoption Process...

Cat adoption fee is $125, and $145 for dogs. We attempt to match the animal's characteristics with the family and their lifestyle. We require an application form, which becomes part of the adoption contract, a personal or phone interview, veterinarian reference if applicable, home visit, and an additional agreement about how the animal will be treated. Cats must be indoors only, not declawed. Dogs must be fenced or leashed when outdoors and treated as part of the family--indoors as much as possible, and always at night. Adopter agrees to provide regular veterinary care, and to return the animal to us if they ever give it up. We reserve the right to check on the animal's welfare from time to time, with appropriate notice.
