Facts about Maya (LOVES Dogs!)

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 4774747
  • Hair: Short
Maya was rescued from the streets of Los Angeles when she was only a year old. She came to us with bloody wounds all over her body; we suspect she may have been attacked by other animals while living on the streets. She underwent many months of care and treatment at The Fuzzy Pet Foundation.
Maya is now five years old, and she has been in our care for all this time because (a) she needs to be the only cat inside the house (dogs are OK), and (b) she has a mild case of stomatitis (inflammation of the oral cavity).
Maya is healthy, but prospective adopters understandably shy away from adopting an animal with any pre-existing medical condition(s). Her stomatitis is not severe, but a couple times a year, Maya requires antibiotics when her gums turn red and inflamed. She also needs a dental cleaning under anesthesia every 1-2 years like most other cats. She can eat, play, and use the bathroom without any problems.
Maya wants nothing more than to be adopted by a nurturing, responsible family. She is very affectionate and sociable. She doesn't like to be around other cats and will hiss and hide at the sight of another cat. But she LOVES all people and will also play with other small dogs! She follows around her favorite people inside the house. She likes to meow and 'talk'! Maya lives for belly rubs, daily brushing sessions, and will sleep right under the bed covers with you every night! Maya is a purr machine who will come running to greet you when you come back home. Such a loyal kitty!

About The Fuzzy Pet Foundation - (TFPF)

About Our Rescue Group...

Founded in 2005, Fuzzy Dog and Cat Rescue, Inc. (FR) is a nonprofit animal rescue group. FR is organized by volunteers who are dedicated to saving homeless animals, reducing the rate of pet overpopulation, and educating the general public on animal welfare issues. Currently, our animals are fostered in a home environment by compassionate, pet-loving volunteers, as opposed to being boarded in kennels; this way we are able to socialize and work with each rescue animal on an individual basis. Our goal is to raise enough funds to establish a facility where we can house animals in a cage-free environment. We also wish to provide permanent, long-term care for senior and/or special needs dogs and cats in our future rescue facility.

Our Adoption Process...

1. Once you select an animal, you will be asked to complete an application form. Should you have any specific questions related to the application or the animal of interest, please contact us via e-mail.

2. Upon approval of your application, you will be contacted (via phone or e-mail) to be scheduled for a “meet and greet” with the animal at one of our adoption locations, and an orientation session with one of our adoptions counselors.

Please Note: We reserve the right to refuse an adoption to any family that we feel is not an ideal match for our animal. We also reserve the right to keep our reasons for denied applicants within our organization.

3. There will be a home-check for potential adoptions to ensure that the animal will be living in a safe and secure environment.

4. You will then be asked to sign a legally-binding contract with Fuzzy Dog and Cat Rescue, Inc., and to pay an adoption/donation fee.

5. Once all requirements are fulfilled, the animal will be released to you.

Please Note: If for any reason you are unable to keep or provide adequate care for the animal, we require that you return him/her back to Fuzzy Dog and Cat Rescue, Inc. Our animals are NOT to be transferred, sold, or given to a third-party.
