Other Pets at Shelter...
|Breed:||Maine Coon||Color:||Gray Or Blue (Mostly)||Age:||Adult|
My name is Grainger - I landed in a high kill shelter in southern VA.and was on borrowed time...Thankfully, a kind rescuer noticed what a handsome, wide-eyed, beautiful boy I am & knew I had to be saved. She says I have a " winning, very affectionate personality" , a loud purr and a soft grey/white coat that you just want to keep petting (which is fine with me!). I'm about 1- 1 1/2 yrs old and have settled in quickly. I'm gently playful and easygoing. Put me on your lap & I'm happy to stay awhile. Get on our laptop and I'll try to insert myself between you and the screen! Being brushed is something we can both enjoy! I am eager to find a loving home (preferably with another cat ... a low key dog would be OK, too) and start a new life with you!. Meet me in my DC foster home.
Rescue Group Info...
We are a small, private feline-only rescue group dedicated to the rescue, care and placement of homeless cats and kittens. We do not have a shelter and rely on a group of dedicated foster homes to care for our felines until a "fur-ever" home can be found. We actively promote the importance of spaying and neutering and best practices in companion animal care. The majority of our cats/kittens come from high-kill shelters. We do not receive any government funding and rely on private contributions, 100% of which go to provide medical care, food and supplies.
All of our cats are in private foster homes; therefore, we require an application be completed before setting up appointments to meet them; an application can be e-mailed, faxed or mailed upon request. Adopters must be within a reasonible driving distance to No. VA as we do not ship our animals; we participate in an adoption event held in Wash. DC most Sundays in conjunction with other rescuers. Please e-mail us for specifics.
We strive to make the "purr-fect" match through our interview and application process. Adoption fees include all medical work (FELV/FIV testing, shots; spay/neuter); home visits are required prior to final placement. The majority of our kittens are only available for adoption in pairs or as a companion to another young cat/kitten already in the home.
Northern Virginia/DC/MD; will consider nearby out of area adoptions if adopter is willing to travel to meet us and we are able to enlist the help of a rescue partner for the required homevisit..
