Facts about Mickey

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: White (Mostly)
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
In late April, a concerned county citizen found a nest in her yard: there were two very tiny kittens and a dead littermate. Their eyes were still closed and there was no evidence of mom. Concerned for their safety, she took them inside and contacted one of our volunteers. We soon had the babies, less than a week old, in the care of an experienced veterinary technician. They appeared to be boys and the finder had named them Mickey and Rooney. After bottle-feeding for several weeks, they learned to eat cat food and were ready for a foster home. And we learned they were girls! But the names stuck.

Mickey (now short for Michelle) is now 4 months old and about 3 pounds, and ready for her forever home! She could be placed with her sister, but it's not a requirement. Rooney is litter trained, super sweet, and very cuddly. She has been dewormed, has had all her shots, and been spayed, and microchipped. This incredibly cute and playful little girl is READY! Are you?

We encourage you to apply online and then come to the next adoption show. Please note that we don't follow up on your application UNTIL YOU MEET THE ANIMAL. We strive for the best applicant-animal match and do not place pets on a first-come, first-served basis. If your application is selected for follow-up, your references will be contacted and a home visit will be scheduled. Our adoption fee is $75 for cats (includes spay/neuter, microchip, plus core shots & tests).

About SPCA/Humane Society Of Prince George's County Maryland

About Our Rescue Group...

The PGSPCA is a nonprofit organization of volunteers dedicated to animal welfare. We are chartered by the State of Maryland, but we receive no state or county funds. Our activities are supported solely by contributions, dues and fundraising events.

We have three main objectives:

• To reduce the number of unwanted litters of dogs and cats through our progressive spay/neuter program – We have altered more than 20,000 animals over the past five years, many of them at no charge;

• To prevent cruelty to animals and all animal suffering through humane education, neglect and cruelty investigations, protective legal action, and an active dog and cat adoption program – We receive about 1,000 calls a month for cruelty investigations, spay and neuter assistance and adoption requests;

• To protect all animals against suffering and abuse through education on legislation affecting the protection of all animals – We regularly educate the public and provide testimony about animal welfare to county and state legislators.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We don't have a central shelter facility, so the best place to meet our adoptable cats and dogs is at our adoption shows! If you have previously filled out an application, please bring it with you to the show! Please e-mail with any questions. We cannot guarantee that an animal you want to meet will be at the show. Please check the animal's online listing the day before the show and we will do our best to let you know if he/she will be there!

Our Adoption Process...

All of our adoptions begin with a visit to one of our adoption events. The adoption coordinator and/or the pet's foster parent will review the applications received. The applicant (if any) whose responses best fit the needs of the particular pet will generally be contacted within a week to schedule a home visit. A vet check and personal reference is also required prior to visiting your home. Our non-refundable adoption fee is $180 for dogs and $75 for cats. The fee covers spay/neuter, core vaccines (distemper and rabies), deworming, microchipping, and the general care of the animals. Per our contract, if you cannot keep your adopted pet for any reason, it must be returned to our program. We will try to find it a new home.
