Gus's Info...

I am already spayed and up to date with shots.

Gus's Story...
This is Gus. She is rooming with Salvador at Gina's house right now as we still have no room at the adoption center for more adult cats. Gus was a mother cat we spayed and returned back in 2011. She had gorgeous kittens which we were able to catch early and socialize. They were all adopted. Gus was being cared for by a gal who lived in York Creek Apts. She had always been a skittish cat, but not truly feral. Because she was not very adoptable, Gus lived outside and the girl fed her. That arrangement worked well for a couple of years. But when the girl moved she just left Gus behind. No doubt as her previous owners had. Thankfully one-woman cat rescue Lynnette took it upon herself to retrap Gus and get her to a foster home with Sue. Sue housed her until we had room at FOF. We have been working with Gus and she is getting more comfortable being petted. She does love other cats too. We have "caught" her and Salvador wrapped up in a cat bed together a few times. If we could find her a home where she isn't expected to be a lap cat, she would do well. We would even consider a barn type home for her if it was the right fit. Imagine what this cat's life would have been if Lynnette and Sue had not stepped in....
It's not just rescues that do the work, it's also individuals who care enough to do something for animals in need.

Our adoption center is located at 7962 Clyde Park SW Byron Center. Our open adoption hours are every Thursday 6-8pm and Sunday from 12-2pm. Come on out and meet the love of your life!

For October we will be lowering our regular 85$ fee DOWN to 50$ per cat in hopes that everyone will find a warm home for the holidays! (Donations above our fee are always encouraged and greatly appreciated as the average kitty costs us around $150 to take from dive to dream home.) All of our kittens are spayed or neutered, tested for FeLV/FIV, vaccinated against Distemper, and treated for fleas and other parasites. 

'Our adoption facility only houses so many kitties. The rest are in foster homes. If you want to meet a specific kitty, please inquire with us before attending an adoption event, so we can make every effort to have the requested kitties available!'

About Focus on Ferals

About Our Rescue Group...

Our mission is to improve the lives of feral cats through education and action, following the humane methods of Trap-Neuter-Return, and thus treating every feral cat with the compassion and respect they deserve.

The Humane Answer: Trap-Neuter-Return
If you've ever seen cats in an alleyway eating out of dumpsters, or blending into the wild habitat of a wooded area, and wondered about their condition and how you could help them, read on...

Some of them, having been lost or abandoned, have found their way to a colony where they can survive amongst other felines. But the majority live out their lives as feral, or "wild", cats. Being either born in the wild and never having had human contact, or reverting to a wild state after having been abandoned; the great majority of feral cats cannot be tamed. Generally, attempts at taming or adoption of ferals prove to be fruitless. Our efforts can be realized one-hundred-fold if we do the greatest good for the greatest number of ferals by stopping the cycle of reproduction.

Communities can help these forgotten cats by providing them with food, water, shelter, and spaying/neutering services through the "Trap-Neuter-Return" full management program.

Briefly, TNR consists of the humane trapping, sterilization, and return of feral cats to their familiar habitat to be cared for daily by dedicated volunteers. Kittens under eight weeks and/or tame cats are placed into adoption programs.

For more in-depth information on TNR, please visit our links page to visit the Alley Cat Allies web site or the Feral Friends web site.

For every kitten that is adopted another kitten will have a chance at a healthy happy life. Kitten season has been especially busy this year and we have been at capacity for some time now. Sadly this means people who want to help the cats and kittens in their area are being turned away because of limited resources.

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption fee for cats $85.00 or two for $125.00. They come spayed/neutered, tested for FIV and FeLV, wormed, treated for fleas and is up to date on his/her vaccines.
