My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Jax hung around AALOC as part of a feral cat community that AALOC feeds. But pretty soon it was apparent that Jax was anything but feral. He started to trust the kennel staff and began to let them pet him, so he must have belonged to someone at one time. This little black and white feline is very curious, intelligent and lovable.
The kennel team was able to trap him and take him to the vet for a check-up. They discovered Jax was FIV positive. FIV is a lentivirus, a slow-progressing virus that can compromise a cat’s immune system, reducing its ability to fight off illnesses. The virus has a long latent period then progresses so slowly that it may never affect a cat. FIV is not transferrable to humans. Jax can live a long life with the proper care but we recommend an adult-only home without any other pets.
Please submit an application to adopt Jax at www.AALOC.org. Once your application is reviewed and approved we will contact you to make an appointment to visit us at AALOC to meet Jax and get to know him a bit.
Donation of $100 for cat adoption includes spay/neuter, vaccinations, and a microchip. Applications require a veterinary reference and home visit. We adopt to residents of Orange County, CA and surrounding areas.

More about this shelter

The Animal Assistance League of Orange County is a non-profit 501(c)3 no kill humane society dedicated to aiding lost and homeless pets, helping people with pet related problems, promoting responsible pet-ownership and pet population control, and preventing cruelty to animals through educational programs.

The organization took its first steps in 1973 with a few animal lovers who wanted to reunite pet owners with lost pets. Today there is a no-kill shelter located in Midway City, with a population of approximately 110 cats and dogs. There is a telephone/email helpline that assists pet owners with a variety of issues, including spay/neuter, pet aid for low-income pet owners, animal abuse and any number of other issues related to cats and dogs.

AALOC is managed almost entirely by volunteers. The reason we do what we do is that we care deeply about animal welfare and hope to make a difference - at least in our part of the world.
