Betsy Ross is a female red tabby domestic shorthair, 6 years old as of December 2014.

This beautiful red tabby was rescued four years ago while in labor, and arrived at Animal House Fund just in time to give birth to her kittens. Betsy was a wonderful mom, and even took on an orphaned foster kitten. Now, it’s this supermom’s turn to be babied by a family of her very own, Betsy is a quiet and affectionate girl who loves to sit on laps, and if you rub her head and scratch her ears, you will be her best friend forever!

About Animal House Cat Rescue and Adoption Center

About Our Shelter...

Animal House Cat Rescue and Adoption Center is a private, non-profit, “no-kill” organization dedicated to providing the homeless, abandoned cats and kittens of St. Louis with a better life. We are committed to maintaining an adoption center that provides a safe, healthy and enriching environment and our goal is a solid and lasting adoption for every cat and kitten in our care.

Animal House opened in August 2010 when the City of St. Louis closed its municipal shelter and ended a number of services for stray animals. Not only did the 75 cats residing in their shelter need a place to go, the St. Louis community needed services for abandoned, homeless cats. Animal House was born out of that need. Today we house 225-300 cats and kittens at any given time.

The cats and kittens at Animal House are rescued from the streets of our community and often come from challenging circumstances that include neglect, abandonment, or injury. We have created a safe place where cats in need find shelter, medical and nutritional support, individualized socialization and interaction, enrichment, lots of love, and the opportunity to connect with a loving, lifelong family. We impose no time limit on this process, giving each cat or kitten the time they need. We emphasize matchmaking throughout our adoption process to ensure the best possible match.
