Don Juan's Story...

Don Juan is a handsome brown tabby with white DSH male that was born approximately 11/03/04.  Don and his buddy Hugh Hefner were dumped at a park in Dallas where a NBCR volunteer maintains a feral colony.  Unfortunately, people think that indoor cats will survive on their own if dumped or abandoned outside which is not true.   The volunteer happened to see them as she was driving through the park that night when her headlights revealed them sitting in the dark in front of the baseball field.  These two cats were terrified and clearly were not feral or even used to being outside.  The volunteer was able to pick them up, put them in carriers and take them home.  Both kitties were relatively healthy but were covered in fleas and missing hair due to a flea allergy.  These kitties obviously belonged to someone at some point, but were not microchipped or wearing collars or tags.  Their rescuer had never seen kitties so happy to be safe indoors.  They seemed exhausted from the whole ordeal and thoroughly enjoyed sleeping in a nice comfy bed, having yummy food, fresh water and someone to love them.   

Unfortunately these two are 8 years old, which will make finding them a home challenging.  If you are looking for a sweet, calm kitty to hang out with you and/or your other pets, they would love a home of their own.  Their foster mom reports that Don Juan is VERY affectionate and would make someone a great companion and lap buddy.  Hef is more laid back.  He wants love, but is not big on snuggling in with you.  This will probably change given time to bond with his new owners.      

Don Juan is in a foster home and his adoption fee is $95.

About New Beginnings Cat Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

New Beginnings Cat Rescue (NBCR) is a 501(c)3 non-profit group. Founded in 2005, NBCR is an all volunteer, no-kill cat rescue dedicated to rescuing cats from euthanasia at Local city shelters. We are foster based and are the "in-store" cat rescue for PetSmart, located at George Bush Freeway and North Garland Avenue in Garland, Texas.

NBCR is dedicated to alleviating the crisis and tragedy of unwanted and abandoned cats, with an emphasis on addressing cat overpopulation issues and educating the public about the importance of spaying and neutering.

With respect and compassion for all cats, New Beginnings Cat Rescue promotes lifelong relationships between people and animals, providing foster care for each precious life until adopted into a good home. We strive to work with animal control and other rescue groups to save homeless cats in our community.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We have cats for adoption at our center in the PetSmart at Hwy 190 and N. Garland Avenue in Garland, Texas. You can visit them during our scheduled adoption events every Saturday from 11-4 pm and Sunday from 12-4 pm. Come see us!

Our Adoption Process...

Our focus is to place animals in loving, permanent homes where they will be cared for responsibly. Potential adopters or fosters are screened, up to and including home visits. We reserve the right to refuse placement of an animal for any reason. We thank you for understanding.

Adopters must be 21 years or older and willing to invest the time and money required to care for a pet. In addition to providing love and attention, regular medical care is required. Please ask if you would like more information about veterinary fees and costs.

Our animals come from a variety of situations. Some have been dumped at shelters or vets, and many are ill or malnourished when rescued. Although the animal has been in a protected environment, there is the possibility of unrecognized illness appearing after an adoption is finalized, especially because of the stress the animal may experience during the first few days at its new home. We advise adopters of the animal's known history and provide its veterinary records, but frequently we know only what the animal chooses to tell us. We cannot make any guarantee regarding the long-term health of any animal. Adoption fees are generally not refundable unless prior arrangements are made.

If you feel that you are ready to adopt, please e-mail info@nbcrtx.org for prompt attention. A NBCR adoption counselor will contact you to arrange an interview.
