Other Pets at Shelter...
|Breed:||Maine Coon||Color:||Orange Or Red (Mostly)||Age:||Adult|
Adopted from us 2 yrs ago, Alex recently lost his home when his family no longer had the time to devote to him after their new baby arrived. Alex is playful, d smart & cross-eyed ...he demands alot of attention and must be able to share your bed at night or he'll cry/paw at the door to be let in! He loves to be close to his person...and likes to sit on your head and groom you!
Here's what his foster mom says about him ....He is the biggest love bug ever. He has been on my lap and given me tons of kisses...such a sweetie. He has already realized this is his (temporary) home, he even tried to type on the computer. His only bad habit is waking me up by licking my face before the alarm clock goes off!
This super affectionate 3 yr old boy was used to living with another cat and a dog and is seeking a home where there is another 4 legged companion(s) . He is a gentle and VERY needy fellow who would adjust easily to most any new situation but you must have time to devote to him. Meet him in his Capitol Hill foster home! Posted 1/6/13
Rescue Group Info...
We are a small, private feline-only rescue group dedicated to the rescue, care and placement of homeless cats and kittens. We do not have a shelter and rely on a group of dedicated foster homes to care for our felines until a "fur-ever" home can be found. We actively promote the importance of spaying and neutering and best practices in companion animal care. The majority of our cats/kittens come from high-kill shelters. We do not receive any government funding and rely on private contributions, 100% of which go to provide medical care, food and supplies.
All of our cats are in private foster homes; therefore, we require an application be completed before setting up appointments to meet them; an application can be e-mailed, faxed or mailed upon request. Adopters must be within a reasonible driving distance to No. VA as we do not ship our animals; we participate in an adoption event held in Wash. DC most Sundays in conjunction with other rescuers. Please e-mail us for specifics.
We strive to make the "purr-fect" match through our interview and application process. Adoption fees include all medical work (FELV/FIV testing, shots; spay/neuter); home visits are required prior to final placement. The majority of our kittens are only available for adoption in pairs or as a companion to another young cat/kitten already in the home.
Northern Virginia/DC/MD; will consider nearby out of area adoptions if adopter is willing to travel to meet us and we are able to enlist the help of a rescue partner for the required homevisit..
