Meow! My name is BOSCO
|Breed:||Domestic Longhair||Color:||Black & White Or Tuxedo||Age:||Young|
I am already neutered, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Good evening....my name is Bosco and I would like to tell you a little bit about myself and my hopes of oneday becoming part of a very loving family. You see I arrived at this little rescue called PAWS Brave Hearts, because many of us who have been brought through these doors have endured very difficult times where we were discarded and left to fend for ourselves and no one to care for us. They call us Brave Hearts because we never gave up, we continued to fight to survive until someone noticed and brought us here to PAWS, where there is an abundance of love, nurturing, patience, and understanding. I am a Brave Heart because I was found as a stray, left uncared for, left unneutered, unvaccinated, and unfed and through this all someone finally took notice and could see I needed help and I wasn't giving up. Because I was left uncared for, I contracted FELV (Feline Leukemia), most likely from a cat fight or from some friendly grooming where another cat who was infected had bitten me or groomed me, passing the disease to me. Have no worries though, don't let this disease deter you from adopting me or lead you to believe this is an immediate death sentence. Cats like me with Feline Leukemia can lead perfectly contented happy lives for many years as long as we get the care we need. There are just a few requirements that need to be met before I just pack up my bags and move right in. But still these are no biggie. First I need to be a strictly indoor cat so I don't pass this disease onto any other unvaccinated cats out there, next if there are any other resident cats in the home they will need to be vaccinated for Feline Leukemia and this still should be discussed with your vet before bringing a positive kittie like myself home.. Yes there is a vaccine out there for Feline Leukemia and this disease can be prevented. Better yet if you already have a home with other FELV positive kitties then there are no worries! Or I could become your one and only! Either way there a ways I can become a part or your life. Here are a couple of great aritcles to better help you understand about FELV (http://www.bestfriends.org/allthegoodnews/specialfeatures/leukemia1.cfm) and (http://www.bestfriends.org/theanimals/pdfs/cats/catfelv.pdf).
Now enough about this disease, because I don't want FELV to define who I am. I am a young male DLH tuxedo boy who has boundless amounts of love to give and a personality that could light up your day. I am boy who loves to be cradled and held. A hug, a squeeze, a kiss, anything, and I will be enternally grateful you chose me as your new life long companion. I am very curious and interactive and really enjoy a good game of laser light or feather chase. I can be a bit under foot as I do like to follow you and check out what is going on. I don't want to miss anything! I can be your forever tag along! I am also a believer and I believe there is a family out there for me. I know it!
If you would like to make Bosco's dream come true then please contact PAWS Brave Hearts, Calais Miane at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 1-207-454-7662. Thank you!

PAWS Brave Hearts is an all volunteer, no/kill animal care, adoption and education center for homeless companion animals. Most of the animals in our care come to us directly from Animal Control and police officers or through our Trap/Neuter/Adopt/ Return (TNAR) program which includes the care and management of feral colonies. We also assist animals who are about to become homeless due to the loss of a beloved guardian.
In addition to providing transitional care and adoption services, we work with local schools to educate young people about the plight of homeless animals and engage them in many of our organization's activities.
We do this work because we believe that all animals deserve respect and care, including loving, permanent homes.

In addition to weekly walk-in hours, we conduct many community-based adoption events through PAWS Around Town. These events can be found on our web-site www.paws-calais.com.
PAWS Brave Hearts offers a user-friendly adoption process. Our short application is posted on our web-site, under adoption, where it can be downloaded and emailed back to the organization. The application includes references from a 1) veterinarian (for experienced guardians), 2) a landlord (for renters) and 3) individuals who know you. When applications are complete and sent to us via email, they can be processed as quickly as we are able to speak with references.
Our process is designed to find permanent, loving homes for the animals in our care by assessing the adopter's lifestyle and preferences for a companion animal and then find the match they are seeking! We offer the highly regarded ASPCA Meet Your Match assessment to adopters.
We frequently send photos and speak with adopters at length about animals who appear to be ideal companions before they travel to our location for a meet and greet. This process has proven to be very successful for both adopters and their new best friends!
PAWS Brave Hearts serves all of Washington County. Given our close proximity to Canada, both adopters and veterinarians are from the US and Canada.
