Facts about DeeDee

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: C-17-264
  • Hair: Short

Description: DeeDee is a lovely mackerel brown tabby with a little something extra...an additional toe on each of her front paws. She's a polydactyl and even though it makes her sound like a flying dinosaur, it really means she's extra cute!

Personality: Although DeeDee was trapped in a lonely spot surrounded by unsocialized cats, she quickly came around to being a very social indoor kitten. She eagerly awaits breakfast and dinner and can't wait to have playtime with her companion Kiki. She also enjoys some maternal washing by one of the resident cats who joins the kittens in the room. DeeDee is ready and waiting to join your household and needs to be adopted with Kiki or another kitten her age to make her feel truly settled in.

Animal History: DeeDee was trapped in a remote spot but her foster mom just didn't want this sweet young kitten to have to return outdoors.

About Independent Animal Rescue, Inc

About Our Rescue Group...

IAR started with one woman's big dreams, a bigger heart, and a very distinctive purple pickup truck that helped her rescue countless numbers of unwanted, abused, and homeless Triangle pets. Originally founded in 1994, IAR earned an official 501 (c)(3) status in 1995. IAR is currently governed by a Board of Directors, managed by elected officers, and supported by over 100 unpaid volunteers. There are no paid positions within IAR, so 100% of all donations directly support animal care and rehabilitation.


Our mission is to rescue and provide safe and responsible care for homeless, abandoned, and abused animals. We shall strive to help all animals in need through our service programs. We will serve our communities through promotion of spay or neuter for all companion animals, and the education of children and adults in the humane care, respect and responsibility for animals on this earth.


At IAR, we believe that the welfare of animals is paramount. We feel that we can alleviate problems associated with animal overpopulation and abandonment using a 4-pronged approach: (1) Rescue and adoption of unwanted and abused animals; (2) funding of spay/neuter; (3) education and outreach on animal welfare to our youngest members of the community; and (4) legislation and lobbying efforts on behalf of animals.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our wonderful IAR cats and kittens are out and about greeting folks at the Durham Petsmart (Patterson Place) and Petco (South Square) locations almost every Saturday and Sunday (1pm-5pm). In addition, some of our cats are housed at these stores for short durations. You can visit these kitties anytime during store hours! If you see a kitty that you'd like to meet and possibly adopt, please fill out an online application at www.animalrescue.net. We will be in touch shortly!

IAR dogs and puppies are available for "meet and greet" at the Durham Petsmart (Patterson Place) on the first and third Sundays each month (2pm-4pm). Please check our calendar for specific dates and locations where you may meet your new best friend!

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption Requirements

  • 20-year commitment to the animal

  • You may not be an undergraduate student or member of the military

  • You must be a US citizen

  • You must allow a home visit (an IAR volunteer to visit your home prior to adoption.)


Adoption Process

  • Fill out an adoption interest application HERE or call us at 919-403-2221. A volunteer will contact you shortly to discuss your application.

  • Our goal is finding lifelong, loving homes for our animals, so we try to find the best match between animal and adopter. We can help advise you on which animals to meet based on your situation.

  • You can meet some of our animals at our monthly adoption fairs, or we can arrange for a meeting in the foster home. If it’s a good match, the foster parent will come to visit your home in person. This is to make sure your home is safe and secure for a new companion animal.

  • Note: IAR makes every effort to please our adopters, but our first concern must be for the animal’s welfare. We reserve the right to deny any application.
