Meow! My name is Tilley
I am already spayed, up to date with shots, and good with kids.
TILLEY is a rescue that was brought in from Tok. Guesstimated to be around a year old, this DSH kitty has eyes the color of emeralds. She was found in someone's driveway, extremely cold and frostbitten. Knowing that strays are a rarity, the gentleman who found her followed the tracks and discovered that some uncaring idiot had pulled off the road and tossed her out into the snow. With temperatures around -50 below zero, she did not stand a chance unless someone found her. Fortunately for her she stumbled down the right driveway. It did not take her long at all to appreciate a cat bed and the heating disc provided to her. Looking at Tilley, she looks like a Scottish Fold, however it is because
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.
