Meow! My name is Alfonzo
|Breed:||Domestic Longhair||Color:||Black (All)||Age:||Adult|
I am already neutered, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Alfonzo is a great young man. His approximate date of birth is in October 2009. Unfortunately, he was hit by a car and was injured pretty badly. He had a broken hip and femur, along with an injury to his right eye. Luckily, his eye has completely healed with no damage! His hip/femur injury was far more serious. The vet needed to do a FHO (femoral head & neck osteotomy) surgery on his back right leg. This is when the vet removes the head & neck at the top of the femur that forms the hip joint. As scar tissue builds up, a false joint is formed, allowing the cat to walk, run and jump pretty much as any other cat can. As you can see in the pictures, all of his hair has not grown back yet, but it will soon. When it does, you will hardly be able to tell anything ever happened. He is a super sweet and loving boy. He loves to be draped over your shoulder! He is extremely playful and can get pretty wound up! For that reason, we are recommending him be with older children. He loves to play with other cats but, again, gets a little wound up and ambushes them. Luckily, he learns his lessons pretty well and soon learns to play more fairly. He would adjust to a cat friendly dog with little trouble. This boy is an active and on the move cat! Are you ready for him?? Well...get ready, because he is ready for you!

Rescue Group Info...
Action for Animals, Inc. is an all volunteer, non profit organization that was incorporated in 1980. We assist the stray cats and dogs of Delaware County, Indiana. We provide medical treatment, spaying and neutering, foster care and ultimately, placement in forever homes for these strays. We also micro chip all of our adoptees prior to adoption. We want to help keep all of them safe! We have chosen the stray population to concentrate our efforts because they have no one to help them find a new home--they have been left to fend for themselves and we need to help them.
We are always in need of donations to support our programs. Any monetary donations are completely tax deductible and even just a few dollars helps us a lot! We receive no city, county, state or federal monies to support our programs. In addition to our adoption program, we maintain a feral cat alteration program and a spay/neuter assistance program for anyone who needs help having their own pet altered.
We always have cats and kittens showcased at the Muncie PetSmart. You can go there during any of the stores' regular hours to meet your potential new pet. If you don't see one there or on this site that interests you, please contact us. There are likely others in our program that we have not gotten posted yet. Please, no phone calls after 10pm.
We do have an application that needs to be filled out and processed. If you have other pets, your vet will be contacted to verify that your pets are kept up to date on vaccinations and are well taken care of. If you rent your home or apartment, your landlord will be contacted to verify that you are allowed to have indoor pets. We also ask for, and contact, two personal references. We ask for a minimum donation of $65.
The city of Muncie and other surrounding towns and cities in Delaware County, Indiana for the animals that we accept into our program.
We are more than happy to adopt our pets to anyone, regardless of where they live and can help arrange meeting places if the adopter lives outside of the local area. However, in most cases, we would not ship or fly our pets to a new home.
