Facts about Xena

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair/Domestic Shorthair Mix
  • Color: Gray Or Blue
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 35811939
  • Hair: Unknown
This 11 year old kitty was surrendered to the shelter after her owner was placed in hospice care. Sadly, there was no safety net in place for Xena. This gentle and innocent kitty became very depressed and was shutting down in the shelter. She has since been placed in a foster home where she's getting plenty of TLC to help her through her emotional trauma.
Xena must have known a ton of kindness to be as sweet as she is. She greets her foster parents with chirps and with her Hello tail waving in the air! Xena is going to make it to her new home in fine shape.
Xena must have been a joyous kitten as she still is interested in toys. She may not have the staying power of kittens but Xena looks and acts much younger than her years. You will be adopting a vibrant, active and gorgeous kitty if you choose Xena. She is sure to bring a lot of joy just by looking at her cute round face and classic tabby coat. A tiny meow and an over-the-top purr completes the lovely picture of Xena.
This sweet kitty is for pampering, petting and babying. If you enjoy the relaxing nature of keeping company with vintage pets, Xena will love to meet you. She adores petting and affection of every kind. This kitty thrives on reassurance and is ready for new love of the Forever kind. We can imagine she will be the snuggly Bed Buddy type if she gets the chance. She is neat in her litterbox habits and will bring all her "house cat" skills with her to her new home. What a wonderful cat for a lucky adopter.
Xena comes already spayed and with vet records. To entice adoption, Xena's adoption fee is sponsored for the right adopter. While she is safe in a foster home, we'd love to get her stabilized in her permanent home as soon as possible. Xena will be adopted from her foster home. Meeting her will be easy- please inquire to set up an appointment.

About Lenoir County SPCA

About Our Shelter...

We are seeing increasingly growing numbers of family pets turned in due to the weak economy, vacations and moving plans, in addition to the strays and abandoned animals being brought in by Animal Control. We usually see a decrease in the number of adoptions much to the same reasons. Therefore, we will be continuously overcrowded and have many wonderful animals desperate for safe, loving homes.

IF YOU SEE an animal you are interested in, please call the shelter and see if it is still available. Animals are held a minimum of 72 hours. As space permits, animals are kept beyond their legal hold time. This website is updated weekly.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Shelter hours are Monday thru Saturday 12 noon to 4 p.m. and closed on Sundays.

Our Adoption Process...

There is always a constant flow of animals at the shelter, making it nearly impossible to keep an accurate web page. There are always several more at the shelter than what you may see here. I encourage you to visit the shelter. Adopting a pet is very easy. We have everyone fill out a questionaire,including a veterinary reference, just to make sure our animals get the best homes possible. There is a $100.00-115.00 donation for all dogs and a $45-65.00 dollar donation for cats, which includes a spay/neuter certificate, a rabies vaccine, worming and a distemper vaccine for the animal. You are required to take the animal into a vet within three to five days to insure its health and to get any additional shots.


We are very pleased and fortunate to on occasion be able to place some of our wonderful pets into all breed or breed specific rescue groups where they will be safe and cared for until their forever home is found. To ensure that our animals are placed into legitimate and proper rescue groups, there is a screening process for the organization. If you are with a rescue organization and are interested in one of our animals, please email Kris, our Rescue Coordinator.

You will be required to provide your organization's adoption contract, vet name and number so that verification can be obtained to condition of animals in your care, name of director or intake director, a brief overview of screening process, and any information about your organization you feel is necessary.
