About Thoreau
Thoreau

I am Thoreau and like my namesake, Henry David Thoreau, I am looking for the simple life. I am a gorgeous yellow striped kitten. My sister is Emily D and my brothers are Hemingway, Beckett and Lord Byron.

My favorite things are hanging out in the window seal and playing with my brothers and sister. Of course, I love boxes and balls and oddly assisting with litter cleanup.

We were born May 11, 2017 and were surrendered to the Forsyth County Animal Shelter. AARF was notified of the need for care outside the shelter and AARF reached out to my foster parents who had never fostered before, but ended up taking really good care of us.

It is time, according to my foster family, that I start looking for prospective humans to take care of. If you are interested in a bright eyed beautiful male yellow striped kitten who loves to play hard and cuddle or more information about the opportunity to meet me, please email my Foster Mom at leslie_sisell@swbell.net.

You can meet and visit with many of our cats at the AARF House (311 Harvey St, Winston Salem) during our adoption fair hours. Go to www.aarfanimals.org for information about our adoption fair hours and adoption process.

About Animal Adoption and Rescue Foundation, Inc. (AARF)

About Our Rescue Group...

Mission Statement: AARF aids homeless and helpless cats and dogs in the greater Winston-Salem area: providing rescue and adoption services, while encouraging the human/animal bond.

Strategic Focus Area: Neglected, homeless and abused companion animals, and the pets whose owners have either gone to nursing homes or are deceased.

History: Animal Adoption and Rescue Foundation, Inc. (AARF) was incorporated in 1995 as a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization to assist animals and people in the community through adoption services and rescue operations. AARF is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and is supported by 136 regular volunteers who work tirelessly, and other 'as needed' volunteers who participate in special events/fundraisers to implement the AARF mission. We also have 10 volunteer veterinarians who work with us to support our goals.

Other Accomplishments: AARF works with local veterinarians to hold several Rabies Clinics per year. Public education on animal care and pet owner responsibility is a priority. We also rescue suitable animals from euthanasia.
