Facts about Chance

  • Breed: American Shorthair
  • Color: White (Mostly)
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Chance showed up by someone's home one day. We don't know if he got lost from his home or was dumped like so many others. A caring woman started feeding him and brought him in a week later.

He was taken to our vet. Chance is healthy and very friendly, but tested positive for FIV. As most of us know, this is not a death sentence. He could live a very long and healthy life with the virus as long as he's kept inside.

We're hoping someone is willing to offer this very sweet boy a home.
We know a couple of people who have had FIV+ cats with the rest of their cats. They never got FIV.

FIV is spread by blood transfusion or by a deep penetrating bite wound. Cats are usually exposed to FIV outside, by fighting for food, territory or for a mate. This rarely happens after the cats are neutered, brought inside and introduced properly. They should be separated for a while and introduced slowly.

Please give this wonderful boy a chance!

Chance is mostly white with orange on his head and tail.

About Best Friend Dog and Animal Adoption

About Our Rescue Group...

CAT ADOPTIONS - MOST Sundays from 2 to 4 pm
at the Union, NJ PETCO, on Rt 22 East.


Please note that not all our cats and dogs will be at adoption at the same time. Call us to find out which ones will be attending, or check our website for details –

Best Friend is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization which exists only through donations we receive from caring people. We are a small group of animal lovers dedicated to giving cats and dogs a second change at life. Some of the animals we take in may have been abused or neglected, and we feel these animals are especially in need of our help. Some of them have been rescued from the pound just in time. Our cats are in foster homes, but our dogs have to live in a boarding kennel until permanent homes are found.

We're in desperate need of permanent, foster homes, and funds to continue this life-saving program. Volunteers are needed to help with adoption days, taking pets to the vets, fundraisers, etc.

Thank you for considering adopting a rescued animal!

Come Meet Our Pets...

Best Friend does not have a facility. Our cats are in foster homes and some of our dogs are in a boarding facility. We're in desperate need of foster homes!

Please call if you're interested in one of our pets or in fostering.

Our Adoption Process...

If you're considering adopting or fostering one of our pets, please call Charlotte to arrange an appointment. All adopters are required to complete a pre-adoption form.
