Facts about Jack

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Jack was adopted out in 2009 but is unfortunately being returned as he has been diagnosed with diabetes. He requires insulin shots 2X a day and we are looking for a home for him that is experienced with diabetic cats or is willing to learn! He is an amazing cat who is well worth it!

Jack is a 7-8 year old declawed male black and white cutie who had a rough start in life. He had been living outside and the vet thinks he was possibly thrown from a car, based on injuries to his back paws. He had also been beaten up by other cats, and was in rough shape when we got him. A kind citizen took in this poor cat and we then took him into our program. He has been fixed up and is doing much better now!

He is a friendly cat who likes to sit on his foster mom's lap. He gets along well with other cats, and he would prefer a home without dogs. He would be fine living in a home with kids.

Jack has a very cute squeeky meow! He loves to chat, so if you are looking for a good conversationalist, Jack is your guy!

Update on Jack, Nov. 3, 2013:

Jack is doing well with his diabetes he has his shots of 2.5 units of insulin twice a day. He does not even notice it is being given as I give it when he is eating and boy does he love his food.

He is living with several other cats all with very different personalities and he is relaxed and happy around all of them.

He loves to just lay on the window sill in the sun or lounge on the back of the couch.

He would love a home where he could get a bit more attention as he likes to be cuddled and fussed and as there are dogs here he is not keen and tends to stay in the basement with the other cats.

He would love a home where he could be part of the action.

Jack is available for adoption through Grand River All-Breed Animal Rescue! If you are interested in him, please visit our website: You can also reach us by email at

About Grand River All Breed Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

As a non-profit animal rescue group our focus is:

To adopt dogs, cats and other companion animals into suitable homes.

To ensure that all dogs and cats placed by our rescue are spayed and neutered to ensure that we are not contributing to the pet overpopulation problem.

To promote responsible and healthy pet care, including humane training techniques and healthy diets.
to rescue animals from over-crowded shelters and the streets.

Our members are understanding and caring people who are pet owners and caregivers. They understand the care and attention that pets require but also how fulfilling (if occasionally challenging) a life with pets can be. We're not here just for the animals, but for their owners as well!

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our pets are all located in foster homes and an application must be approved in order to meet one of our pets.

Our Adoption Process...

Grand River All Breed Rescue's adoption process involves an adoption application, reference checks, and discussion about the potential adoptive home, including a home visit. We follow this process as we do have a responsibility to ensure that we place each pet in a home that is suitable and committed to caring for the pet for the rest of its' life.

We match our rescues to their new homes, and filling out an adoption application, or proceeding with our adoption process does not guarantee the acceptance of an adoption application. We reserve the right to refuse an applicant for any reason, at our discretion.

Please note that once we begin an application, we hope to have it completed within a couple days, based upon availability, particularly of your references. We are just as excited to find our pets their forever home as you are to adopt!

All GRAB animal require an adoption donation. Our adoption donations help us to pay for the many costs associated with rescuing animals, including veterinary bills, food, litter and other pet supplies, and administrative costs. The majority of our animals are adopted out for less than what it cost us to rescue them, and we do not make money on our pets. All adoption donations go directly back into our account which allows us to continue rescuing animals.

Currently our adoption donation for dogs is $375 and for cats is $175. Rabbits are adopted out for $60 and are spayed or neutered. Please ask us about adoption fees for other small pets, including guinea pigs, degus, etc.

For dogs and cats, our adoption donation includes a veterinary exam, vaccines, deworming and flea treatment (if needed), spay or neuter and microchip.
