My story

Ginger and Momo are a bonded pair of kitties who are looking for a special home together. This pair came to us from a home with an excessive number of cats that were not socialized properly when they were young. Ginger was heavily pregnant when she was rescued and she and Momo did a great job raising their kittens. This pair has since been spayed/neutered and now it's their turn to find a loving home. They have both come a very long way socially since they first came to us, but they still have a long way to go.



Ginger and Momo are both shy kitties who are specifically looking for a home that is experienced working with under-socialized cats. They also need a home where there is already an existing cat (or cats) to help them acclimate to a new environment. This pair arrived in our care in March 2021 and it took them until August to start coming out of their shells. They spent most of their time hiding and avoiding contact with humans. They are now both interactive, chatty, and social in the sense of wanting to be able to see what's going on in the house and not hiding any more, but neither cat is comfortable being touched. Momo will allow handling if he doesn't have the option to run away, but Ginger is still feisty if you try to handle her. We cannot guarantee that either of these kitties will ever be excited about being touched or handled, but we expect that they will become comfortable members of their new family. They really need someone who is willing to give them the home that they deserve to blossom in their own time.



These two are great with other cats and will do best in a home with existing cats. The other cats in their foster home really helped them come out of their shells and assisted with their socializing. They are also eating Royal Canin Calm Diet and get Purina Calming Care supplement to help them feel more comfortable while they continue with socialization. Neither cat is very playful so a home with older, more quiet cats might be better than a house full of energy.



This pair is not at all comfortable with dogs. In their previous home the only experience that they had with dogs was negative so they are terrified of K9s. They need an adult-only home.

Additional adoption info

Adopting a pet is a lifetime commitment and a big responsibility. Dogs can live 15 years or more, and cats can live 20+ years. Like people, each individual pet comes with its own set of baggage, needs, and personality traits. Because your new pet will depend on you to provide its basic needs, we need to be sure that you are educated and up to the challenge. Our adoption process allows us to ask you some questions about your home environment, your lifestyle, and your needs, expectations, and limitations. We want to be sure that your new pet is going to be just as happy in its new home as you are to have it there.
A Successful Adoption Process Includes the Following Steps:
To start the adoption process, please contact us at victoriapets@gmail.com and request an adoption application. Once it is completed, email it back to the same address and in the body of your email, please tell us about your home/family. If there is a particular pet that you're interested in, please indicate which. Our adoption team will contact those whose applications have the potential to be the best match with the pet(s) of interest to set up a visit supervised by the foster parent who can answer some of the questions you may have about the pet. You will not be able to take the pet home the day of the visit.
One of our volunteers will contact you within 72 hours of the visit and we will open a dialogue with you based on the information provided in your application. We will talk about your home and family, as well as your experience with pets. We will ask you to tell us about the kind of life and care you can offer to the adopted pet, and we will inform you about any health or behavioural issues that you should be aware of.
(For dogs only) Once an adoption is pending, we will come visit your home to ensure that the environment is suitable for the pet in question, based on its needs. We can advise you of modifications that could make the adoption more successful, such as fencing and other things you may not have thought about.
The adoption process generally takes several days, and this time line is intentional. It allows you time to think about your decision so that you can be sure that you are comfortable with the decision that you’ve made. Adoptions are never approved within 48 hours of the application being submitted.
Once we have successfully journeyed through the steps above, you can pick up your new friend to begin a wonderful life together!
Signing an adoption contract is a requirement for every pet that is adopted.
