JONAS is a very sweet, outgoing boy who was adopted out at 4 months of age to a family who promised a lifetime commitment, then called to return him on his first birthday (12/15/12) saying they were moving and didn't want to pay the air fare for him.. Adopted into a military family, they pledged to treat him like part of the family and take him with them when their time in Alaska was served. The lesson learned here was this man was not of his word and a pledge to this kitty meant nothing. Jonas was lost at first but quickly adapted back into foster. His became fast buddies with Button and would love it more then anything to go into a home with his buddy or a home with another cat who is looking for a friend. Jonas has a bad habit of running in front of you then plopping over on his back for a quick belly rub. Does great with the dogs in foster and would do great with kids. If you know what lifetime commitment means and are a person of your word then Jonas is ready to try again.
Rescue Group Info...
I have been involved in cat rescue most of my life. When I was a child I was always bringing strays home and it broke my heart when my parents would make me find a new home for them. It takes some people years to figure out their purpose in life and I discovered mine at an early age...cat rescue. I do it to try and make a difference in a cats life and to educate people on the importance of spay/neuter. I was with Friends of Pets for 10 years where I did cat rescue, foster and adoption as well as other volunteer duties. I left Friends of Pets in 2001 and co-founded the rescue group, Kitty and K-9 Connection. I was a director for 10 years, the past four as President, where I did everything there is to do in a non-profit animal organization which included rescue, foster and adoptions and that is what I am doing today.

If you fine a cat you are interested in, an adoption application is done. Once reviewed and processed, a time is set up for potential adopters to meet the cat. If all works out then the adoption contract is done and a trial period begins to make sure everyone adjusts.There is an adoption fee of $120.00 for adult cats and $150.00 for kittens, and home visits may be required. The standard adoption fee of $120 gives you a cat that has been examined by a veterinarian, feline leukemia tested, spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. If a cat comes in with additional medical needs, ie, dental, broken limb, ear mites, worms. etc. those needs will be addressed and the cost of the adoption is still $120.
