My story

NOTE: We do not adopt our fosters to anyone further than a 1-hour drive from Albany, NY.

Thorn is a one year boy looking for his forever home. He tolerates other cats (and is currently in a foster home with Ras where they get along fine but aren’t best buddies) but does like to be in charge. He may need a few days to settle in then he’ll be your best buddy. Although he doesn’t love being picked up he adores attention, being with you and getting lots of pets. Thorn is FIV positive. Don’t let that scare you. FIV isn’t passed to humans or other animal species and is only passed to other cats through a “deep, penetrating bite” (typically done only by unneutered feral males). It is not passed thru close contact, grooming, sharing food or litter boxes. FIV+ kitties can leave normal, long lives if kept safe inside. Please consider sweet Thorn. He’s a doll ❤️. Thorn can go to a home as an only cat or with another cat that isn’t domineering or aggressive.

More about this rescue

AnimaLovers was founded in 1995 by a small group of friends who wanted to provide needy cats and dogs in the Capital District of New York with a better way to find their way to safety and new lives. As of 2011, AnimaLovers is serving cats, only. AnimaLovers's mission is to: * To provide housing, veterinary care, and adoption for unwanted, abandoned, injured, or stray cats; * To educate adopters, as well as the general public, about the health and training needs of our companion animals; * To promote spaying and neutering as an efficient and humane means of animal population control; and * To advocate for legislation that will prevent cruelty to animals. In addition, AnimaLovers has expanded beyond the boundaries of cat and dog rescue and adoption to meet the needs of other animals as well by creating programs to help families keep their companion animals healthy by providing low-cost spay/neuter services and emergency veterinary care.
