Gypsy's Story...
Rescue

One of Pet Patrol’s volunteers noticed a pretty grey tabby kitty in her back garden, just strolling through on her way to nowhere. Here we go again! This was not the first time. Quite often cats would find their way to her property, as it is tranquil and she has a shed that makes and protected little home for them. She began asking neighbours if they knew who owned the cat and this is Gypsy’s story. She originally lived in another city and her owner passed away. The family members did not want all his cats, and took them to the local shelter. A relative bailed Gypsy out, thinking she was saving her from being euthanized. She lived about a block from our volunteer’s home and released Gypsy outdoors, unspayed and without shelter! So here is poor Gypsy, a friendly cat, dumped. As our volunteer began feeding her she could not help but notice that this kitty was pregnant and getting close to her due date. So she convinced her to come inside where Gypsy showed us that she is a wonderful cat. She settled in and soon gave birth to six beautiful kittens.

Personality

Gypsy is beautiful. She is sweet and affectionate, loves her care giver and is appreciative of being indoors. She is a playful cat as well, and loves anything with catnip in it. Tossing a toy for her to run after and pounce on is a favourite. Gypsy will crawl up onto your lap and cuddle right in, she will be good company for someone who wants another heart beat in the home. Gypsy is ready to be adopted into home that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

About Pet Patrol

About Our Rescue Group...

The Pet Patrol Cat Adoption Program began in 1996, with a concern for lost and abandoned cats. Soon after, we realized the population explosion of homeless cats, was not only in our community, but everywhere.

Their plight is sad. Imagine living in a warm and comfortable home, then suddenly staring at the back of the car as it drives off, leaving you on a gravel road. Nothing looks familiar, no house, no people. Where do you go now? Where do you find your next meal, water, a warm dry bed? And then there are the other animals who don’t want you there...where is safety?

Many more cats are dumped by insensitive owners than lost. They are usually not neutered or spayed, which adds dramatically to the over population situation. They are in poor health, unable to fend for themselves in the dead of winter or heat of summer, in the middle of nowhere. They are voiceless, but their hearts cry out for us.

Pet Patrol has expanded successfully and we provide loving foster homes, professional Vet care, Chiropractic care and a Spay/Neuter program. We have Profile Adoption Books, posters, weekly newspaper advertising and are able to have our cats “Audition for Adoption” in two Pet Value stores in Waterloo. We have approximately 80 cats or kittens in our custody, and each cat’s medical and social concerns are taken care of before adoption. Potential new owners are screened carefully for compatibility of home life and to the cat’s personality and needs. With all this, there are never enough adoptive homes or funds, for so many more homeless cats out there, literally dying to come in.

As a Registered Charity, all monies raised go directly to Veterinary costs for each cat. Pet Patrol has grown as a direct result of the vast number of cats abandoned and trying to survive on next to nothing. You can understand the continual efforts needed to care for these cats in crisis. Pet Patrol has proven to be an important part of your community.

Donations are purrfectly welcomed.

Our Adoption Process...

Please note that we do not have an animal shelter or office. Pet Patrol cats live in the comfort of our homes, cage free. As such, appointments must be arranged before coming to the main foster home to visit the cats. Please call us at 519.669.1979 for an interview.

Every Pet Patrol cat has been Vet-checked, vaccinated, received its rabies shot, is spayed or neutered and treated for parasites.

Our adoption fee is $175.00 which helps to offset the initial Veterinary costs and control the overpopulation problem.

When you find a cat that you like, and it likes you, it can go home with you that day. You will receive the cat's profile (which tells you about the cat's rescue and its personality), you'll sign adoption forms and receive the cat's Health Record as well.

By living with the cats, we get to observe their individual personalities and how they get along with new people, children that visit the home, and their interactions with other cats. This helps us to determine if a cat needs a more serene and predictable home, or likes to be in the middle of a busy active family. We want everyone to be happy, the cat and its new family!
