'G-Kitty is about 3 years old and he spent the first 2 1/2 years growing up on the streets. Apparently (per a neighbor) someone did own him as a kitten, but never took care of him. He ended up on my porch July 2012. I started feeding him. I got him neutered and a rabies shot. In January 2013 he got chewed up by a neighbor dog and had to have half his tail amputated. At that point I started taking him to the vet to get his shots, etc. We found out he is FIV positive and the vet recommended that I not bring him in to my home where I have a dog and an indoor cat. I've been keeping G-Kitty closed off in my bedroom. He is the sweetest cat I've ever met. He just purrs and purrs and loves affection. He sleeps with me and is very polite as he doesn't wake me up until morning to go out. I would love for someone to take care of this little guy. It's not fair for him to have to stay locked up in my bedroom because I have to keep him separate from my indoor cat. He is all up to date on shots and he did well with his tail amputation surgery. I will miss him terribly but he needs more than what I can give him.'

The owner thinks it will be best if G-Kitty is the only pet in the new home.

Please be aware that FIV cats can live long and happy lives with proper care.  Please take a minute to read through some of the information below in living with FIV felines.

FIV is Not a Mandatory Death Sentence

It is important to realize that a positive test for FIV is not a mandatory death sentence. With a high protein diet and aggressive treatment of secondary infections, an FIV-positive cat can lead a reasonably normal life span. Dr. Mike Richards says, 'Feline immundeficiency virus infection does not lead to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome in cats as often as human immunodeficiency virus leads to AIDS in people.' The largest threat to FIV-positive cats is secondary infections, such as bladder, skin, and upper respiratory infections. Kidney failure is also frequently seen in cats with FIV. These secondary infections should be treated promptly and aggressively in any cat, but especially with an FIV cat.

What is FIV and how is it transmitted?

FIV (Feline Immumodeficiency Virus) is a retrovirus in the same family as the human AIDS virus, with a few significant differences. It is estimated that in the United States, 2% of cats are infected with the FIV virus. Saliva to blood (biting) is generally accepted as the primary source of spreading the virus, and it is unlikely (but not impossible) that cats will spread FIV by drinking or eating out of the same food dish, or by mutual grooming. It is not surprising that outdoor cats are particularly susceptible to the virus, and the best way to prevent infection with FIV virus is to ensure that your cat stays indoors only, which eliminates the possibility of contact with FIV cats.

Additional information:

A cat who contracts FIV will usually still have a strong immune system for several years after infection, it is only over time, that the effects of the virus may start to show, and even then, most infections can be treated with the appropriate medications. With love and good care however, many FIV+ cats can live normal lifespans. These days, it's not unusual to find FIV+ cats reaching 15 years or more.

A long-term FIV Monitoring Project was carried out at Glasgow Veterinary School over a number of years and the results indicated that a higher percentage of FIV negative cats died during the period of the study than FIV positive cats! A fourteen year study by Maureen Hutchison B.Sc, BVMS, MRCVS (veterinary adviser to the Cat Action Trust) found that FIV-positive cats are more likely to die by being killed in road accidents or to be alive and well into their twilight years than they are to die from any FIV related condition. Also, a recent survey by Dr Diane D. Addie (Lecturer in Veterinary Virology, University of Glasgow) where 26 cats were monitored for ten years, found that FIV infection did not affect the cats’ life expectancy.

  • Knowing what we now do of the prolonged nature of the condition, euthanasia is totally inappropriate and inhumane. Being killed in a road accident is a far higher risk for a cat than FIV.

About All-American Mutt Rescue, Inc

About Our Rescue Group...

Our motto is "Rescue … rehome … real love” and we try to live it every day. We rescue animals in need of new homes and loving families. We make sure each of them is spayed or neutered and up-to-date on all routine vaccinations. If other medical care or treatment is needed, we get that for them as well.

We welcome these fosters into our homes and our lives and really get to know their personalities and their needs. Then we make it our mission to re-home them - to place them in the forever home that will be perfect for them. Some of them really need to have another dog companion, while others will do well being an 'only pet.' Some love having children to play with, while others prefer being with adult companions. Some do well sharing a home with cats or other small pets, while others .... well ... no so much. And the only way we know this is by living with them!

We also work to educate and encourage other pet owners to spay or neuter their animals to

a) help their pets lead longer, healthier lives, and
b) help reduce the numbers of homeless and unwanted animals in our Central Virgina communities.

It is such an easy thing to do! Not only will it benefit your pet and your family, but it will reduce the numbers of wonderful, adoptable animals that are euthanized every year. Please be part of the solution.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are an all volunteer, home-based rescue organization. We do not have a public shelter facility, so you can meet our pups at our public events, such as at the Lynchburg VA Petco. Please check our Calendar of Events regularly for other opportunities to meet our pups. Otherwise, we have volunteers bring pups for a home visit after an application has been approved.

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption process:

Step 1: Complete the online Adoption Application at Once submitted, it comes directly to us. You should get an email immediately saying that your application has been successfully submitted. If you do not get this email, your application did not go through.

Step 2: We will review completed applications, do reference checks and schedule home visits as needed. Please remember that adopting a pup is making a commitment of 10-15 years, so we do not take any shortcuts in processing applications. It is our responsibility to place these pups in the very best homes we can possibly find for them. Application processing can usually be done in 7-10 days. Sometimes it may take longer if we have a problem reaching your references or finding another rescue to do a home visit for adoptions outside our 75 mile radius from Huddleston, VA..

Step 3: When your Adoption Application is tentatively approved, we will schedule a home visit ... a time for you to meet the pup that just might be the newest member of your family.

***Please remember that we are an all volunteer, home-based rescue organization. We do not have a public shelter facility, so all meetings (other than at our public meet-and-greets or other events) for potential adopters and fosters are done by appointment only and after an application has been approved. Most of our volunteers work full-time jobs, so appointments are generally scheduled for Saturdays between 11 am and 4 pm and Sundays between 1 pm and 5 pm. Of course, we will always try to be as flexible as possible when scheduling meet-and-greets.***

Step 4: After the meeting, if everything seems to be a perfect match, the final step is the signing of the Adoption Contract, payment of the adoption fee, and welcoming your new family member home.
