Meow! My name is Starrymoto
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Black & White Or Tuxedo||Age:||Adult|
I am already spayed, housetrained, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, declawed, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Star had a very hard start in life. She had kittens, then ended up staying in a basement because she was too afraid to come up into the house with the people who found her. She is very afraid of other cats and dogs. She will even slap at her caregiver if they move too fast. When she came to us, Star had lots of sores on her body and loss of hair. She still has bare places on the back of her head and neck. She has improved with higher quality food, Purina Pro Plan Sensitive Skin and Stomach, which she will need to continue to eat, sprinkled with Fortiflora. Star needs someone who will be very patient and lives in a calm environment, preferably with no other animals. She will need a private place for her litter box, her food and to sleep. She is coming around, but it will take time. We can only hope there is someone out there who is willing to give Star some patient love and time.

Rescue Group Info...
Riley's Ark is named in honor of a beloved Staffordshire Bull Terrier who lived with us for 15 years before she succumbed to cancer. She loved and lived with all kinds of other animals. All pets live underfoot with other cats and dogs. We have limited space in our home, so until one is adopted, we cannot take another one in.
We do not have facilities for visits unless arrangements are made by phone. Usually we do a home visit with a pet who has been predetermined as possibly appropriate for a particular home. Our pets are kept under foot, not in cages, so they tend to be better socialized than many shelter pets, and we do not euthanize healthy pets. We also use foster homes, so if you are interested in fostering a pet, please contact us about that. Please help us by donating by clicking the PayPal button at www.rileysark.petfinder.com Our pets thank you.
There is an application form to be filled out, references checked and a home visit may be required. A cash or PayPal non-refundable adoption donation helps to defray costs, since all pets have up-to-date vaccinations and are spayed or neutered before they can be adopted. Rates vary depending on what medical care was involved to get a pet ready for adoption. You will find that our rates are quite reasonable when compared to many rescues and shelters in the area. We will also work with you to make sure that your adoption gives you a forever companion. We have a two-week health guarantee that if your pet gets sick within two weeks of your adopton date, if you bring the pet to us to see our vet, you will not have to pay for the pet's care. After the two weeks, it is your responsibility to give veterinary care to your pet.
