Meow! My name is Tux
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Black & White Or Tuxedo||Age:||Adult|
I am already neutered, up to date with shots, and good with cats.
TUX is a large handsome DSH male tuxedo about 2-3 years of age. Came from a home where lots of other cats lived. When he came into rescue it was evident he hadn't been cared for very well or socialized much. It took him awhile to trust and to come out of his shell. He has turned out to be a very nice cat and goes great with other cats. He would do much better around larger humans, so a home without small children is needed. He loves to lay down in your lap for belly rubs, to be brushed and trimming toenails is a cinch. Has turned out to be quite a purr machine. Would do well with older children and perhaps an unintrusive dog.
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.
Meet & Greets held at Anchorage PetZoo on Dimond & Old Seward every other Saturday from 2ish to 7:30ish pm. Check the website for current dates and future locations.
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.
