Story
Not good at first impressions?  Awkward in social situations?  Well so is Molly, and that's why she keeps getting passed up by adopters.   Hello, I'm Molly, and life took an unexpected turn for me. My dad faced job loss, and with it, our home slipped away. He made the tough choice to entrust me to the caring folks at Rescue Outreach. My new foster home is welcoming, complete with feline step-siblings, but my heart longs for a place to call my own. Despite the challenges, I'm embracing each day. I find solace by the window, captivated by the world of birds. Bedtime and mornings are my cherished moments, where I revel in cuddles, playful toe-chasing, and curling up with my foster mom. Yes, I'm still a bit on edge with new sounds, but I'm determined to grow more confident. Let me share a secret—I'm a relentless purrer, and chin rubs are my absolute favorite. According to my foster mom, I boast the longest legs and stand tall like a supermodel!  If you understand the nuances of feline adjustment, I could be your perfect companion. I'm not aggressive, get along famously with other cats, and while I enjoy being picked up, I prefer shorter sessions. When comfortable, I'll nuzzle you, signaling my readiness for affection. On a practical note, I'm a litter box pro. Currently fostered in Brookfield, I'm on the lookout for that special someone to make my forever home. Ready to welcome me into your heart? Animal is Fostered in: Brookfield, WI He/She is scheduled for alteration on ***.  If adopted prior to this date, adopter will sign an alteration contract and submit a $100 reimbursable deposit at the time of alteration.  We ask that the deposit be in the form of a CHECK.   Adopter will be expected to bring the animal to this surgery appointment on day, time and at location scheduled.  If the adopter fails to bring to date of surgery, the deposit will NOT be refunded.  We value the time our Veterinarian's provide us.  We are charged a fee for cancellations or no show appointments.  Missed appointments also delay care that other animals could be receiving. For more information, or to apply for adoption, visit our website at: www.RescueOutreach.com Please note the following will be performed on all animals prior to adoption: Microchip Spay/Neuter (unless medically unable at time of adoption, in which case this will be discussed) Heartworm Testing (dogs);    FELV/FIV Testing (cats) Age appropriate CORE vaccines.  Dhpp, Rabies (if old enough)-dog;  CVR, Rabies (if old enough) - cat  - WE DO NOT ADMINISTER BORDETELLA unless indicated.   PLEASE NOTE- puppies and kittens may need to complete vaccination schedule depending on age at time of adoption.   Dewormed All breeds are best guess from veterinarian based on physical exam.  All animals come from high kill shelters with poor access to resources.  Once they arrive to our rescue they are quarantined for health purposes and spoiled in loving foster homes until their forever home is found!  Our organization is operated 100% by volunteers who give their time and love out of the goodness of their hearts.   ##1841986##

I am Amelia Purrhart! But you can call me Amelia and I am Sugar and Spice and I have the personality to back it up!  I would benefit from another feline friend to play with! I like to run and jump and play with my foster moms cat.  I have been around a couple of dogs and I just left then alone. But foster mom is unsure how things would be. I am sweet but also will growl if I don't like something.  I do like to be petted and I will purr away for you.  I am still a little afraid of things. People are big... I am small. However, my foster mom thinks I will get good at it with some time and patience.  I have a beautiful carmel, brownish coat. Everyone I meet says I am beautiful! Wont you give this purrhart beauty a home!!??  Requirements: Children 10 yrs and Older (Due to my shy nature) Animal is Fostered in: Kenosha, WI For more information, or to apply for adoption, visit our website at: www.RescueOutreach.com Please note the following will be performed on all animals prior to adoption: Microchip Spay/Neuter (unless medically unable at time of adoption, in which case this will be discussed) Heartworm Testing (dogs);    FELV/FIV Testing (cats) Age appropriate CORE vaccines.  Dhpp, Rabies (if old enough)-dog;  CVR, Rabies (if old enough) - cat  - WE DO NOT ADMINISTER BORDETELLA unless indicated.   PLEASE NOTE- puppies and kittens may need to complete vaccination schedule depending on age at time of adoption.   Dewormed All breeds are best guess from veterinarian based on physical exam.  All animals come from high kill shelters with poor access to resources.  Once they arrive to our rescue they are quarantined for health purposes and spoiled in loving foster homes until their forever home is found!  Our organization is operated 100% by volunteers who give their time and love out of the goodness of their hearts.   ##1914585##

Story
Mango is a gorgeous, sweet feline who is looking for a loving home. She is 3 years old, tests negative and is spayed. This orangey-red kitty was found in a pole-barn with her siblings and their mother. Nurturing Mango over the past several months acclimated her safely indoors; she will do well with another cat to play with. And she loves to play, and goes crazy over string-on-stick toys, catnip-stuffed toys, and knows how to use a scratching post. Spoiled already, Mango entertains herself as well, surrounded by windows to the great outdoors; she is fascinated by birds and squirrels finding the sun-rays for an afternoon nap. Mango knows terrifically how to relax near you too and give a few sociable head-butts. She has grown accustomed to brushes, combs and gentle petting. She is independent like most female kitties, she is a little shy but readily looks to engage a trusting bond.

Story
Penny was rescued by a family friend from a ditch on the side of the road. She lived with my girlfriend and her family (who had dogs and cats) until my girlfriend moved out and took Penny with her. Penny is a very good cat, lazy but loves getting petted and is overall very well-behaved. We have one other cat, and the only times they have issues is when the younger one provokes or attacks Penny. Penny would be best off as an only pet, but can co-exist with cats and dogs and is fine unless they provoke her. Penny has recently experienced multiple seizures (for the first time in her 6 years of life) and has been put on Phenobarbital which she needs to take orally twice daily for the rest of her life to stop the seizures from occurring. Because of this, we are no longer able to keep Penny due financial and life constraints. We are terribly saddened by this, as she has been such a great companion over the years. Penny has never peed outside the litter box, other than when having a seizure.
