Story
Look at this stud!! Wendell is such a stately looking gentleman. He has been one of the favorites at the rescue! Wendell was recently being fostered by a prospective family with the intent to adopt. Unfortunately, due to no fault of his own, things didn’t work out as planned and Wendell is back at the rescue. The family has 2 larger dogs and the new dynamic was posing to be a problem. Wendell is not particularly bothered by dogs, but in this instance, the dogs were too much for him. But this is why fostering works! We always want the best fit for the adopters as well as the animal. Wendell is ok with other cats and small dogs would be fine. Will you give him a chance? Do you want to foster or adopt 2.5 year old Wendell?If you’re interested in adopting Wendell, please fill out an adoption application at https://www.care4strays.org/adoption-applicationIf you would like to foster Wendell, you can fill out a foster application at https://www.care4strays.org/foster-application Please note our service area is the Pascack Valley within Bergen County, NJ, and its surrounding area. Please consider our distance when applying to adopt an animal as we personally deliver all adopted animals to their forever homes. ##1644338##

How cute are these two?! Meet Madeline & Ricardo! These two were doing their best to survive on the streets of Paterson. They were taken in by a good Samaritan when they were both just kittens. The rescuer reached out to us for help as she can no longer care for them. Ricardo is the cutest 2-year old male tabby. His gorgeous best friend is 1 ½ year old, Madeline. She is a very special jewel with the most beautiful calico markings and two different colored eyes - one blue and one amber! They have been spayed/neutered, are FIV/FeLV negative and have been given a clean bill of health by our vets. Ricardo and Madeline are the sweetest pair who deserve a home of their very own together. They will be adopted as a pair only. Ready to meet this dynamic duo?If interested in fostering them, please fill out an application here:https://www.care4strays.org/foster-applicationIf you’re interested in adopting Ricardo and Madeline, please fill out an adoption application at https://www.care4strays.org/adoption-application Please note our service area is the Pascack Valley within Bergen County, NJ and its surrounding area.

 Tony and Tanya are just gorgeous! This mother son duo is just perfect. Tanya was found with her 3, 1 month old babies in early July, making Tony around 8 months old and Tanya estimated at 2 years old. They are playful and loving. They adore each other and will be adopted together. They need a little time to get comfortable with their family, but once comfortable they are total sweethearts. They enjoy snuggling on the couch and receiving plenty of head rubs. A quiet home would be best. You won’t regret adopting this beautiful pair!If you’re interested in adopting Tony and Tanya, please fill out an adoption application at https://www.care4strays.org/adoption-application Please note our service area is the Pascack Valley within Bergen County, NJ and its surrounding area.

Story
 Elfie was found as a stray, thin and lethargic with an extremely bad infection in both eyes. She was immediately taken to the vet for evaluation and treatment. Elfie was given antibiotics for her eye infections, but one of her eyes couldn’t be saved and was surgically removed. She has no sight in her remaining eye but may see some shadowing. After surgery, she went into heart failure and one of our hero vet techs brought her home for the night, not expecting her to survive. To everyone’s amazement, Elfie made a complete turn-around that night. What a fighter!  She is an 8-year-old blind beauty, thriving in her foster home. Elfie is sweet, playful and gets along well with the resident dogs and cats. Elfie will be adopted into a home with other animal companions.If you’re interested in adopting Elfie, please fill out an adoption application at https://www.care4strays.org/adoption-applicationPlease note our service area is the Pascack Valley within Bergen County, NJ and its surrounding area.  Please consider our distance when applying to adopt as we personally deliver all adopted animals to their forever homes.Link in bio.   ##1979714##

Where are all the orange cat lovers!!  Ralph (Happy Days) Malph is a goofy, playful boy born around June 2023. This little ginger man was surrendered because his human was moving cross country and couldn’t take Ralph along. He’s already captured the hearts of everyone at the rescue with his outgoing disposition. Even though Ralph had come from a home, he had not yet been neutered. Well, no more skirt chasing for this Casanova, but he’s “still got it”… a sparkling personality, that is. If you’re interested in adopting Ralph, please fill out an adoption application at https://www.care4strays.org/adoption-applicationIf interested in fostering Ralph, you can fill out an application at https://www.care4strays.org/foster-applicationPlease note our service area is the Pascack Valley within Bergen County, NJ and its surrounding area.

We tried and tried and tried to get a good picture, but Lusee is not winning any awards for Miss Photogenic. Don’t let her permanent scowl fool you! Lusee was living in a colony in Hackensack near a dangerously busy road where the cats are fed by a good Samaritan. We received a call asking for our help with two of the cats who were friendly. William (who has gone to his forever home) and Lusee were set up for vet appointments and then taken safely into our rescue.Lusee is an adorable 3 year-old gray tabby girl who is thankful to be safe and warm. She was unsure at first, but now she’s loving all the affection and pets she is receiving. It’s time for Lusee to have her happy ever after!If you’re interested in adopting Lusee, please fill out an adoption application at https://www.care4strays.org/adoption-applicationIf you would like to foster Lusee, you can fill out a foster application at https://www.care4strays.org/foster-applicationPlease note our service area is the Pascack Valley within Bergen County, NJ and its surrounding area.

Story
Bear is a sweet little guy. He is 11 years old and very healthy. He is an indoor cat. He was adopted with his brother as kittens whom unfortunately passed on last year. I feel badly because my son is older and moved, his brother is passed, and I work and go to night classes. I want him to receive the attention and love he deserves instead if being so alone. He is very gentle, house trained, and has no known health issues. He would be perfect for a parent living alone who needs a friend. He has a long life to live and deserves the very best.

Story
Meet Hartley and Sir Mittington. These 5-month-old brothers are handsome grey tabbies. They weigh about 5 lb now and Sir Mittington is polydactyl. Hartley and Sir Mittington are a bonded pair and need a forever home together. These kitties are endlessly entertaining their foster mom with their silly antics, playing together, cuddling and cleaning one another. Sir Mittington really enjoys settling in next to you on the couch and head scratches. It's wonderful holding him, as he will wrap his mitts around you and purr contentedly. He's curious and adventurous, typically with his brother following closely behind. Hartley is a big time cuddler and enjoys curling up next to you in bed. He will sleep by your side throughout the night and provides wonderful companionship (as well as being a mini-heater of sorts!). Hartley is a loving boy who enjoys pets and hanging out by your legs while you're on the couch. The kittens are neutered, microchipped and vaccinated and healthy. Hartley has a mild heart murmur but no signs of cardiac disease. The adoption fee for each kitten is $200. These extremely sweet boys will fit in well with a low key household (adopters with kids 10 and up).

Pebbles is a beautiful 7-month-old girl. Her mom was a tuxedo and her dad was an orange tabby; hence her gorgeous markings. The foster family says "Pebbles is a talker.

Pebbles will need a short period of time to adjust to her new family, but will be a lovebug once she does. She loves to be pet, but we are working on picking her up. Pebbles has two siblings, Sia and Bengal. She would love to be adopted with one or both of her sisters." Pebbles is vaccinated, microchipped, spayed and healthy. Her adoption fee is $150.

This beautiful girl is named Sia (like the singer). She is a 7-month-old calico with gorgeous markings of black and orange tabby.

She loves to play and loves back rubs. She is fantastic with her other siblings and the adult cats, but has not had contact with dogs. She would love to be adopted with one of her siblings, Bengal and Pebbles." Sia is vaccinated, microchipped, spayed and healthy. Her adoption fee is $150.
