My Story

Are you looking for a friend for your cat? Then, you just have to meet me! My name is Willow. I am a gorgeous girl who is about 1 year old. Right now, I prefer the company of other felines over that of humans. I mean, people are OK and all, if you're into that kind of thing. I will allow them to pet me sometimes and I don't mind hanging out around them, but I am certainly not one of those in-your-face lapcats. Quite frankly, that's beneath me. I prefer my independence and interaction on my terms. I do use the litterbox like a good cat and I enjoy looking out the window, lounging atop the cat tower and batting around the catnip toys. So if your cat needs a buddy, please consider me. I would like to be your cat's newest friend. Adoption fee: $60. Adopt a pair: $90. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, spay/neuter, microchip and 30 days of free pet insurance.

Adoption Process: Complete the application at www.pawsforliferescue.org. We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the mandatory, minimum two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. You will pay the non-refundable adoption fee at the start of the two-week adjustment period. This pending period allows your new dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.
