Meow! My name is Princess Penelope
Princess Penelope's Info...
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Gray Or Blue (Mostly)||Age:||Adult|
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Princess Penelope is a beautiful gray and white female tabby. Sadly she was surrendered to a shelter in March due to financial reasons and was rescued by Fancy Cats shortly after. She can be a little shy at first, but when she warms up to people she is very affectionate and loves to curl up in your lap. Penelope has soft, beautiful fur and enjoys being petted. She has a playful side and will play independently or with others. She does well with dogs and other cats. Princess Penelope is a calm and loving cat that is waiting to find a home where she can spread her love with someone that will love her right back.

Rescue Group Info...
Fancy Cats Rescue Team was founded to provide the community a "safety net" for cats and kittens that are abused and abandoned, or added to the euthanasia list at the shelters that we are currently participating with. We are a 501 (c) (3) Nonprofit Organization and participate with the United Way/CFC #8929. The goal is to have no kill shelters in place. Education and responsible pet ownership are the foundation of our organization. Our program provides literature, counseling, referral services and educational resources to families and individuals needing guidance. Teaching people responsible pet guardianship by spay and neutering their pets, behavioral modification and health concerns. We also provide a mentoring environment for our youth volunteers where they can learn the rewards of community service while caring for animals that need their gentle, loving kindness. They also interact with the community providing self-confidence and the ability to interact with a variety of cultures and diverse backgrounds. Once an animal is received into our program, they remain with us until a safe, appropriate home is found. They are never euthanized based on their age or space limitations. They are given appropriate medical care, immunizations, spays or neuters and endless hours of tender, loving care. We are an all-volunteer organization with no paid staff. We are funded by community donations, 91% goes toward the care and well being of our animals. Our adoption fees help offset our veterinary bills.
Our adoptions are held at the Fair Lakes PETsMART in Fairfax Virginia, at the Chantilly PetsMART, at the Gainesville PetsMART, and at the Springfield PetsMART
Check our website for upcoming adoptions. www.fancycats.org
Our adopters fill out an application that screens for problems that may be detrimental to our cats and kittens. Once the adopter is approved we provide veterinary referrals which help with low cost spays or neuters for the kittens that are too young at the time of adoption. We are always available to help with behavioral issues that arise. We provide numerous information sheets in our adoption folders, plus the medical background of each cat. The only fees involved with our program are adoption fees that offset our veterinary bills.
