Meow! My name is Little Teddy
Little Teddy's Info...
I am a special needs pet, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Update: 4/30/12 Teddy is doing so much better than just a few short months ago! He now weighs over 7 lbs and has lots of playful energy! He is such a little snuggle boy too! Teddy has been re-examined and great news...his lungs are now clear. Unfortunately he is testing faint positive for FIV, but we have high hopes that when he is retested in a few months that he might then be negative. Even if he does not we 'love' him no matter what! Many cats with FIV still live very normal, happy and healthy long lives, and we know how much this little guy is a fighter.
1/2/12 'Teddy' is an amazing little boy who ended up saving himself and his little buddies who were in big trouble with Upper Respiratory Infections living at a small engine repair shop.
Teddy was relentless for affection, and followed a customer to the car on a rainy miserable night. Knowing they would all probably not survive without medical attention, they were swept up the next day and started on medication.
Teddy is estimated to be approx 5 months old, current with vaccines, and has tested Negative for Felv. Teddy will be neutered once he's old enough as part of the adoption agreement.
Shortly after we took Little Teddy in, unfortunately he spiked a high fever for several days and ended up in intensive care with pneumonia; the good news is after many days of fluids and several antibiotics, Little Teddy is a new man and doing great.
The bad news is we now have a $1500 vet bill so we've created a ChipIN for Teddy in which anyone who would be so kind to donate to help with his medical expenses can click on the following link:

Please note: The Cat Shack rescue is all volunteer and the adopted cats are delivered to your home. Because we deliver the cats to you, we must restrict the adoptions of our highly adoptable cats to a 1 hour drive from the Allentown PA area. In certain situations, 'special-needs' cats, ferals and older cats will be adopted to homes at a greater distance then a 1 hour drive from Allentown PA.
The first step to adoption is to fill out an on -line application.

Young KITTENS are always adopted in Pairs or to homes with other felines already in the home.

All cats are vaccinated, dewormed, tested and altered as part of the adoption contract.
This basic care (and other vet work required to make our rescues healthy) is included in the $85 adoption donation!
Rescue Group Info...
The Cat Shack is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization staffed by volunteers.
We keep all of our rescued cats until they get adopted and will treat all medical issues identified by our vets. All of our pets are fostered in the homes of volunteers and we utilize our adoption centers in the PetsMart in Whitehall PA, the Petvalu in East Greenville and and Petvalu in Quakertown to help us find homes for our rescued pets.
Our group also has a very active Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR) program where feral cats are altered and returned to their original location to live out their lives without reproducing.
We always have many cats and kittens listed on our website at www.thecatshack.com, plus we have adoption centers where you can meet some of our cats live in the following locations:
PetsMart in Whitehall PA, the Petvalu in East Greenville and and Petvalu in Quakertown.
We ask our adopters to fill out a brief application. We seek adopters that will provide a loving home for the life of the pet with proper vet care.
The Cat Shack adoption contract states that the adopter will keep the cat safe, provide vet care and will return the cat to the Cat Shack rescue if the owners find that they can no longer keep their pet.
The Cat Shack adoption fee is $75 and includes FeLV/FIV testing, vaccines, deworming, the spay or neuter plus any other medical issues needed. This often includes dentals and other expensive vet work.
We typically adopt our animals to homes within a 1 hour drive from the Allentown PA area, although we will drive longer distances for special needs adoptions.
