Meow! My name is Harper
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Tan Or Fawn (Mostly)||Age:||Adult|
I am already spayed, housetrained, and up to date with shots.
Harper is a very sweet 5 year old tan & white DSH. She came into the shelter on as a 'stray'. She weighed in at 27 lbs, a lot of which was fur that had to be shaved off because she was extremely matted. She is such a nice girl that she did not even have to be sedated to be shaved down. Although she is technically a stray, she was brought in by a family member of the previous owner. Obviously they had not been taking good care of her. They did a very sketchy job of filling out the give up sheet. After hearing her trials and tribulations there was no way we could allow her life to end this way. She deserves a second chance and to have a real family that will love her forever and would never abandon her or neglect her again.
Her purrrsonality puts us in awe. Though she was matted and dirty and neglected and the give up sheet even stated she was hit, she still only wants to give and be loved. She is lovely and affectionate. All that matters to her is for someone to give her a little love and a gentle touch. She absolutely loves being petted and will just rub her head on anything. The first day she was with us, she was totally relaxed and just looking around to see who would notice her loving gaze and come over to pet her. She knows no strangers. Anyone who wants to pay attention to her she welcomes and rewards with lots of kitty kisses and a very big purr. Her old home obviously just gave her food instead of affection, and all she needs is a good wet food only diet to get her down to a healthy weight again. We just know there is a family that is looking for her right now. Please contact us if you would like to give this pretty girl all the love and care she deserves.

Rescue Group Info...
Fancy Cats Rescue Team was founded to provide the community a "safety net" for cats and kittens that are abused and abandoned, or added to the euthanasia list at the shelters that we are currently participating with. We are a 501 (c) (3) Nonprofit Organization and participate with the United Way/CFC #8929. The goal is to have no kill shelters in place. Education and responsible pet ownership are the foundation of our organization. Our program provides literature, counseling, referral services and educational resources to families and individuals needing guidance. Teaching people responsible pet guardianship by spay and neutering their pets, behavioral modification and health concerns. We also provide a mentoring environment for our youth volunteers where they can learn the rewards of community service while caring for animals that need their gentle, loving kindness. They also interact with the community providing self-confidence and the ability to interact with a variety of cultures and diverse backgrounds. Once an animal is received into our program, they remain with us until a safe, appropriate home is found. They are never euthanized based on their age or space limitations. They are given appropriate medical care, immunizations, spays or neuters and endless hours of tender, loving care. We are an all-volunteer organization with no paid staff. We are funded by community donations, 91% goes toward the care and well being of our animals. Our adoption fees help offset our veterinary bills.
Our adoptions are held at the Fair Lakes PETsMART in Fairfax Virginia, at the Chantilly PetsMART, at the Gainesville PetsMART, and at the Springfield PetsMART
Check our website for upcoming adoptions. www.fancycats.org
Our adopters fill out an application that screens for problems that may be detrimental to our cats and kittens. Once the adopter is approved we provide veterinary referrals which help with low cost spays or neuters for the kittens that are too young at the time of adoption. We are always available to help with behavioral issues that arise. We provide numerous information sheets in our adoption folders, plus the medical background of each cat. The only fees involved with our program are adoption fees that offset our veterinary bills.
