Meow! My name is FeLV+ Family URGENT
FeLV+ Family URGENT's Info...
I am a special needs pet.
The Cat Shack has found a temporary alternative to euthanasia for two young Feline Leukemia (FeLV+) female cats and their three FeLV+ kittens thanks to the offer of short term foster space by two caring volunteers, Danielle and Dave. We now need your help to spread the word about these beautiful cats so they can find true homes.
These friendly, beautiful cats have been exposed to FeLV because their former owners did not care for them properly, allowing them to roam outside in a dangerous location. Even with their FeLV+ diagnosis, they can still have a full life with proper care. They must not be allowed to mingle with Feline leukemia negative cats, but they would be perfect only cats, companions to other FeLV+ cats or dogs. Humans can not contract FeLV.
The two adult female cats are now spayed and all the cats and kittens are vaccinated, dewormed, treated for fleas. They are friendly house-cats that use the litterbox and have lived in a home with a large dog. Please help these cats have a chance! All are currently healthy.
The available cats include:
Lacey (pictured above) - a beautiful semi-longhaired female with grey and orange markings. She is beautiful! 1-2 years old.
Pearl - a sleek, lovely short haired black female, 1-2 years old.
The kittens are:
Silver - an adorable dilute torti female with lots of grey and orange
Monique - a black and orange female torti with unique markings on her face
Jet - a solid black short haired male kitten

Please note: The Cat Shack rescue is all volunteer and the adopted cats are delivered to your home. Because we deliver the cats to you, we must restrict the adoptions of our highly adoptable cats to a 1 hour drive from the Allentown PA area. In certain situations, 'special-needs' cats, ferals and older cats will be adopted to homes at a greater distance then a 1 hour drive from Allentown PA.
The first step to adoption is to fill out an on -line application.

Young KITTENS are always adopted in Pairs or to homes with other felines already in the home.

All cats are vaccinated, dewormed, tested and altered as part of the adoption contract.
This basic care (and other vet work required to make our rescues healthy) is included in the $85 adoption donation!
Rescue Group Info...
The Cat Shack is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization staffed by volunteers.
We keep all of our rescued cats until they get adopted and will treat all medical issues identified by our vets. All of our pets are fostered in the homes of volunteers and we utilize our adoption centers in the PetsMart in Whitehall PA, the Petvalu in East Greenville and and Petvalu in Quakertown to help us find homes for our rescued pets.
Our group also has a very active Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR) program where feral cats are altered and returned to their original location to live out their lives without reproducing.
We always have many cats and kittens listed on our website at www.thecatshack.com, plus we have adoption centers where you can meet some of our cats live in the following locations:
PetsMart in Whitehall PA, the Petvalu in East Greenville and and Petvalu in Quakertown.
We ask our adopters to fill out a brief application. We seek adopters that will provide a loving home for the life of the pet with proper vet care.
The Cat Shack adoption contract states that the adopter will keep the cat safe, provide vet care and will return the cat to the Cat Shack rescue if the owners find that they can no longer keep their pet.
The Cat Shack adoption fee is $75 and includes FeLV/FIV testing, vaccines, deworming, the spay or neuter plus any other medical issues needed. This often includes dentals and other expensive vet work.
We typically adopt our animals to homes within a 1 hour drive from the Allentown PA area, although we will drive longer distances for special needs adoptions.
