My story

Please contact Tonya Griffith ( for more information about this pet.

Posted 7/21/21, and pictures were taken on 6/21/21.  Dana and her siblings were found at a senior living community in Tyler, TX, and surrendered on 6/20/15.  Dana has remained skittish of us, but lets our teenage son care for her and the other cats.  We do have to corner her in our building to give her medicine, or use a fish net to catch her.  She is both inside and outside in a fenced area to keep the cats safe from our dogs.  She may tame down with more one on one attention, but a person would have to know what they are doing, and let her come to that person when she's ready.  She has a white spot on her neck.

D.O.B.:     ? April 22, 2015

$15 adoption fee if placed as a barn cat.  $70 adoption fee if placed in a home to pay for her spay and vaccinations.

Go meet their pets

It depends on who has the pet. We don't advertise our address to keep people from dumping animals on our road anymore than they usually do, especially since this is also where we live. I like to visit with a person on the phone first before letting them come meet the pet.

More about this rescue

This is a small animal rescue for cats and dogs. I have several foster homes in various areas, and I also do courtesy postings for people who need help finding a home for their pet, which is about 80% successful. The pet doesn't have to enter a rescue or shelter and the owner is contacted, so they decide who their pet goes to. If a person can't send me pictures, and they don't live too far away, I will go and videotape the pet myself to place pictures on the internet, or have a volunteer get the pictures. There have been a few pets that haven't been able to find a home through this service, but it depends on what the pet is and who is looking on the internet. When we have space available we take transfers from a local kill animal shelter. We also step in and help people who find themselves with multiple animals and no way to pay to get them fixed. Usually I will get all the females fixed to get their circumstances under control, and in some cases I will also help with donated food when I have extra. If they want to find homes for some of the many pets they have accumulated, then I will place their pictures on the internet for them. We don't euthanize unless a pet is seriously ill.
