I'm being cared for by: Marshfield Area Pet Shelter
Help me get seen & adopted!
Facts about Ripley
Breed: Domestic Shorthair/Domestic Shorthair Mix
I am already neutered.
I used to live out on the streets hunting for food and having to protect myself, because of this I contracted the disease called FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus). This disease is a lot like human HIV, it weakens my immune system and means I may be more susceptible to other illnesses. Despite this diagnosis I am a happy and cuddly cat. I love people and getting attention, especially when I'm getting my chin and cheeks scratched. I am happy to be off the streets and have a warn bed and a full belly but I would love to have a human to call my own. Consider giving a special kitty a place in your home?

About Our Shelter...
Located in Marshfield, Wisconsin, the Marshfield Area Pet Shelter is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization actively engaged in raising funds to build a permanent humane shelter for the greater Marshfield area. MAPS is currently operating out of a temporary home on W 29th Street and at our Adoption Center located inside Marshfield Mall. We believe all animals deserve a chance. Our lifesaving mission is to treat all animals with dignity and respect, enrich the lives of animals in need and improve the relationship between people and pets. We pledge that every adoptable animal will be given the opportunity to find a loving home regardless of space, age or time limitations.
