Meow! My name is Yancy
|Breed:||Bengal||Color:||Cream Or Ivory (Mostly)||Age:||Young|
I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.
If foster mom and dad could keep anymore of their foster babies - yancy would be it. He is an absolutely amazing boy who needs a wonderful home. Yancy is a cream and white bengal mix who came from death row at the pound in Tucson, Az. His siblings all found homes very quickly but yancy stayed because foster mom and dad came home one day and yancy was completely blind! The vet couldn't explain it but overnight yancy had severe cataracts at only a few months of age. He was distressed, terrified, and crying whenever his people left for work, so we put on the movie Wall-e for him and he "watched" that on repeat for several days! He loved the sounds of the movie and it comforted him while foster mom and dad were away. He eventually learned how to manuever and now races around the house like a nutcase. He even "educated" a blind puppy on how to get to her food bowl and water bowl when she was learning the house. However, he loves to "chew" on other cats as well as wrestle, and he'll even play with small dogs if they let him so other playful pets are a must. He has no idea that he is "special needs". Yancy's vision now comes and goes - some days he has more cataracts in one eye then another and no vet has been able to explain it. He's almost 2 years old now and is perfectly healthy otherwise so now we think he's ready to find his forever home. He's been in foster care since he was a tiny baby so understand he won't just be going to just anyone! He adores people and talks with a squeak, something his new parents will need to be okay with is that he depends on his claws to get around at times, we keep them trimmed short but he uses them to occasionally attach himself to his people's pant legs if he cant get their attention when they are going by. We discourage this behavior with a squirt of water, or "no" and pushing him down, but want a new parent to be ready for this possibility. He's doing better every day and tries to sit at your feet quietly asking for attention now. Please submit an application if you know you can be only the most amazing home for this little boy.

Rescue Group Info...
Saving One Life is a completely foster based, volunteer run, no kill rescue. Our motto is that although we can't save the world, it makes a world of difference to the ones we do save.
We primarily work with cats and kittens of all ages. We frequently take in "behavioral cases" including semi-ferals needing rehabilitation. We do take in purebred cats of all kinds but specialize in the Cornish Rex and Devon Rex. We occasionally have small dogs to medium dogs available. The majority of our animals come from the euthanasia list at the pound or off the rescue list at the humane society. We do have occasional owner surrenders, but we prefer to help those most in need first.
If you find a litter of kittens or your cat accidently got pregnant - please contact us if you are able to foster them. We cannot take in more animals without foster homes. All supplies and vet care will be taken care of - all you have to do is open your home and heart to them until they can find homes of their own!
All of our cats & kittens are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, blood tested for felv/fiv, dewormed, and microchipped. Adoption fee's range depending on the animal's age and breed. All adoption fees assist other animals in our care - we do not have any paid employees. We are a completely no kill group that provides sanctuary to any "unadoptable" animals that come into our care including hospice care. Our animals all live in homes with foster parents so that they can be acclimated to all sorts of situations and so that they can live as a part of a family until finding their "forever family" instead of in kennels or cages.
A few of our fabulous cats and kittens can be seen at 2860 E Germann Rd, Chandler, AZ 85286. Call the store or email if you are looking to see if a particular one may be there, otherwise with a completed application we are happy to schedule an appointment with any of the animals in foster homes.
When contacting to find out about a cat/kitten emails are ALWAYS preferred and will get a much faster response. If you are leaving a phone message please speak clearly, leave your name, the name of the animal you are interested in, phone number and a brief message.
Our adoption process begins with our application which can be found at www.savingonelife.org. After you submit an application please expect a response within 48 hours - please email if you do not get a response in that time frame. We may ask for a phone interview as well if we have additional lengthy questions. We may require home visits for special needs animals on a case by case basis. If you visit a kitty at Petsmart and want to adopt please either submit an application online or in person at the store with one of our volunteers.
We will adopt to out of state adopters but we do NOT ship animals under any conditions. You must come to us in person to meet the animal and make sure it is a mutual match. We have had many adopters come from the states around us and drive or fly with their new family member back.
We are a foster based, entirely volunteer run animal rescue based out of Chandler, Arizona. However we have foster families all over the greater Phoenix area.
