Meow! My name is Duchess
|Breed:||Siamese||Color:||Cream Or Ivory||Age:||Adult|
I am already spayed, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and good with cats.
Duchess has been through a lot, but has persevered and has a lot of life still to enjoy. She is friends with the many other cats in our main room where she likes to snooze, get human attention and occasionally engage in play. She has a unique beauty, sweet personality, and wonderful resilience. She is blind in one eye, but it doesn't stop her from enjoying life and bringing happiness and companionship to those around her. She was shy when she arrived at BCC and often was found in our office bookcase, but has since come into her own and is quite comfortable. She has no current issues with her eye, the only thing is that she sometimes gets startled a bit if approached on her blind side. She is a real Siamese beauty.
More information about Branford Compassion Club
Branford Compassion Club (BCC) is a non-profit feline
rescue organization that serves not only Branford, CT,
but surrounding shoreline towns. The mission of the club
is to provide for the feeding, shelter and care of homeless,
abandoned and feral cats; to educate the public about the
importance of spay/neuter population control, responsible
pet ownership and kindness to animals; and to establish an
ongoing community network to achieve these goals.
Branford Compassion Club was founded in November 1997,
by a handful of compassionate Branford residents concerned
with the growing population of feral cats. The residents
united to form BCC to alleviate the hunger and suffering
of feral cats in this community.
The Branford Compassion Club is an all volunteer organization, and as such we are only able to be open on Saturdays from 11-3. If you need to come in at a different time, please call and we would be happy to set up an appointment with you.
At the Branford Compassion Club, we do require a potential adopter to fill out an application, which includes vet history and references, and is then reviewed by an officer of the shelter. Adoptions may happen the same day, if possible. There is an adoption fee of 125$ for adult cats and 150$ for kittens, this fee helps to offset the cost of all the medical procedures done prior to adoption such as:
Medically checked by a veterinarian
Tested for Feline Leukemia and Feline AIDS
De-wormed and De-fleaed
Vaccinated against Distemper and Rabies (over 3 months of age)
The adoption fee also helps us to intake another cat once the space from your new family member opens up.
