Hi!  My name is Jack. I love to take a nap on the FACE office counter and watch everyone who has brought their pet family member in to meet the staff here at FACE.  I don’t understand why no one will let me go in the exam room with them.  I just want to watch.   I tested positive for the feline leukemia virus, which is a highly contagious viral disease. The virus can be transmitted to other cats through sharing food dishes, water bowls and litter boxes. However, depending on how the virus progresses, I could live many happy years with you. But since the disease is contagious, a home without other cats or a home with only other feline leukemia positive cats would be best for me.  Just look how handsome I am!  Don’t you have a forever place for me in your home?



Feline Leukemia (FeLV) causes a retroviral infection that weakens a cat’s immune system, making him or her susceptible to illness and secondary infection. Many people think FeLV cats are sick and dying and have no quality of life.  The reality, though, is felines who are positive for the virus can remain healthy for months or years after their diagnosis until the virus becomes active. In fact, some cats can live to be 10 to 15 years old if they are diagnosed as an adult. Whatever length their life ends up being, their time can be joy-filled. Cats who are positive for the feline leukemia virus require special considerations. They can live with other species (dogs, bunnies and so on), but must be an only cat or live with other felines who have the disease. The virus infects felines only, but it spreads easily through casual interaction, including via food and water bowls, litter boxes, and through mutual grooming. Adopters of feline leukemia cats should plan to keep the cat as healthy as possible by feeding a good diet, taking the cat for annual vet checkups, not allowing it outdoors, and seeking veterinary advice at first sign of illness.

About FACE/IndyFeral

About Our Rescue Group...

FACE and IndyFeral are two like minded organizations who have recently merged to help more cats and dogs in Indianapolis. We are committed to ending pet overpopulation by providing affordable and accessible spaying/neutering as well as wellness services. We also promote adoption, rather than buying or breeding. FACE focuses on owned cats and dogs while IndyFeral seeks to reduce the stray and feral cat overpopulation in Indianapolis through the non-lethal method of Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR), not trap and kill.

Our Adoption Process...

All of our cats and dogs available for adoption have been spay/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and tested for feline leukemia/FIV or heartworm. A simple application for adoption is required and is designed to increase the likelihood that any cat or dog we adopt will have a secure home environment for the remainder of his/her life. The adoption fee is only $100 for dogs and between $50-$75 for cats and includes all of the above. A great deal.
