My story

Meet Richie and Ruthie. These bonded siblings have been together since birth and have stuck together through thick and thin.

Unfortunately their life didn't start out so easily. They were found outside as kittens and dropped off somewhere that they were unwanted.

They were loosing hair from stress, always hiding, and constantly being attacked by the other cats in the home. Unfortunately the other cats in the home were FIV+ and passed this virus onto both Ruthie and Richie.

Cats living with FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus) have a suppressed immune system but other than that live a completely normal life. It is not contagious to other animals or people and is only contagious to other cats through deep bite wounds.

After taking Richie and Ruthie into our care and gaining their trust it is clear that these sweet ginger cats just needed a little love and TLC. All of their fur has completely grown back and they are both happy and healthy and so so ready for their forever home.

Ruthie and Richie are both fixed and combo tested (FIV+ Felv-). They are not good with other cats because they feel the need to defend themselves after being attacked at their old home however they have done great with our small dog and respectful children.

They can be a bit shy at first but once they trust you good luck getting them to leave you alone. All they want is to be pet and loved on. Especially Richie who will not take no for an answer. He could be loved on all day long and it still wouldn't be enough! Do you have room in your heart for these two love bugs?

Richie and Ruthie are around 2 years old and have been together their whole life. They are just like typical siblings. They wrestle, play, cuddle, groom each other, and protect each other.

They are affectionate, sweet, very playful, talkative, and deserve a safe home where they will get all the pets and be treated like family. Could that be with you?

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

We require a personal interview at which time we review our guidelines for pet's care and make sure our contract is agreeable as well as answer any questions. DOGS: The adoption fee is $250 -$350 after completion of the adoption application, home visit and interview. If the dog is over 5 months of age the adoption fee includes heartworm test, rabies vaccine, spay/neuter done, and distemper vaccines (if needed). If you are adopting a puppy under 4 months of age, there is an additional CASH deposit of $80 which is returned when proof of spay/neuter is provided to DFAS within the required time frame (which is part of the adoption contract). CATS: Adoption fees generally are $50 for unaltered cats/kittens and an additional $65 CASH ONLY deposit required until proof of spay/neuter between 4 and 5 months of age has been provided to DFAS.. Kitties who are already spay/neutered are $100 regardless of age. All cats and kittens are up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccines and FELV tested if they are over 5 months of age. We test the mom of kittens if she is with them.

More about this rescue

We are a small 501c3 Non Profit Organization facilitating adoptions of cats, dogs, kittens and puppies as well as bunnies, birds, guinea pigs, rats, gerbils and degus. We believe in no more killing of healthy, treatable, trainable and adoptable pets; no more homeless pets! Through our adoption process we educate pet owners about importance of the human/pet bond. Because it is not the animals fault that their previous owner did not spay/neuter or keep them safe from harms way. We want every animal to feel the love that each and every one of them so deserves. Because we are a small volunteer only organization; donations, volunteers and fosters are always in high demand and greatly appreciated!
