My story

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

If you'd like to meet Butter Jr., please read his full profile. Once you've done that and would like to move forward, we ask that you then visit our website to review our adoption process and requirements and schedule an on-site appointment (or visit during our walk-in hours).

There's a lot to tell of Butter Jr.'s story but we'll try to condense it - in a few words, he's fabulous and miraculous!

Butter Jr. initially came to land here at GGOH after a TNR project at a farm - the colony of cats was approaching the out-of-control status. We welcomed Butter Jr. in and due to his super friendly nature, he was quickly adopted. Fast forward a year and a half later, and Butter Jr. is diagnosed with FIP. The family reaches out and we welcome Butter to begin treatment. We were thrilled to see how Butters was responding to treatment, especially as he was suffering from the neurological form of the virus. After 21 days of treatment with great improvement, he went home to continue his care.

A mere six days later Butter Jr. was brought back to us in rough shape. We don't know the underlying reason, but he had lost weight, was jaundice, couldn’t hold his body temperature, was unable to eat and was dehydrated. We quickly jumped back to emergency care at the facility and then sought specialized veterinary care where he spent a week with constant care and the need for a feeding tube. At the end of that week Butter Jr. returned to us for critical care. It was very touch and go but Butter kept telling us, in his own way, to hang in there as he was really trying to beat this. And, well, look at him now! Here we are several months post-treatment and he is alive and thriving. And the best part, he is ready for a new home and family. At this point we're sure you're asking what of his prior family - well, while we cannot disclose specifics, we can say Butter Jr. is looking for a new home. No one can predict the future, and we certainly could not have predicted this, but we are happy that Butter Jr. is here for the long run and we are so proud of this boy and his will to live - he truly is a miracle kitty!

If you are looking for a young, active, full of life cat that will keep you entertained and on your toes, look no further - Butter Jr. is all of that and more. He is super affectionate and gets along with cats, dogs and children. He loves life and is not afraid to show you that fact. Come meet him, we know you'll fall head-over-heels for him. Really, you will!

Butter Jr. has an approx. DOB of 8/11/2020.

More about this rescue

Established in 2003, we are a no-kill rescue/re-home program that takes in abandoned, homeless and unwanted animals. We work tirelessly to find new, permanent homes for our rescues. Our program's Director began this journey when our county's humane society was closed down.

A note from our Director:

"I have been a lifelong rescuer; all of my pets (currently, 10 dogs and 5 cats) are rescue animals. They mean the world to me and I want to help as many animals as I can while I am on this earth. Back in 2003, I gathered together many animal lovers in the area and we started our rescue efforts; we've continued to grow over time and are now operating as a 501c3 organization, which has helped us strengthen our efforts to save the animals. We want to see that no animal goes without love, shelter, food or a happy life. We work on educating the public about the overpopulation problem, we promote spay/neuter programs, and we do group tours at our facility to teach about the rescue re-home world. To get our youth community involved, we visit schools to teach about responsible pet ownership, animal abuse and neglect, and what they as an animal advocate can do to help prevent these tragedies. We are proud of what we do here at our rescue and we believe it is our job to protect those that speak another language and quite honestly, we just could not imagine a world without them. I invite you to join our efforts by becoming a sustainable monthly donor, a volunteer with our program or, simply to be another voice for the animals. Contact us today to find out how you can help."
