My Story

Meet Verona! This beautiful calico girl is about 1 year old. She was rescued in Rochester by the Verona Street Animal Society. She has been a Tabby Town resident since November of 2017.

She has a feisty and spunky personality that we have seen since she arrived at Tabby Town. She has a lot of energy and loves to run around and play. She loves toys and anything she can chase. Once she settles down she is affectionate and enjoys petting and attention.

Verona became frustrated in her condo. The constant noise and action of Tabby Town have stressed her out. This has resulted in her getting more of a cattitude. We recently moved her into a larger area for her to have more room to stretch her legs and to play, the move has definitely helped and we have seen quite the personality change.

We haven’t seen many negative interactions with other cats, but due to Verona’s high energy she can overwhelm a calmer or shy cat. She would need to live with another confident cat, or no other cats.

Verona really needs a home to call her own. She needs to feels safe and happy in order for her to reach her full potential. She would do best in a home without children.

Verona is a special adoption, if you are interested in this adorable lady, please stop by or call the shelter at (716) 822-4910 and ask to make an appointment with Tabby Town’s amazing behaviorist Sue, who will handling her adoption process.

Verona is spayed, current on vaccinations (Rabies and Distemper) and has been tested for FeLV (she tested negative).

Adoption Process

Adoption Procedure Policy
All our cats and kittens at Tabby Town (TT) are rescued with the goal of adoption. Our organization partners with six local animal welfare groups; each group follows a specific protocol for adoption and TT implements adoptions according to each individual process as required by that organization. There are great similarities among the groups; the most significant difference is that some groups restrict de-clawing. We collaborate with all our animal welfare partners with the understanding that we will follow their specific protocol while working toward a universal adoption process. To that end, our highly trained team of volunteers follows strict guidelines while taking into account each individual situation from both human and animal perspectives.
Here is the process:
-Visitors come to TT to meet cats with possibility of adopting
-If a cat is selected, family goes in a private "meet and greet"to spend time with cat/kitten
-If there is a positive result on both sides, TT's vetting process begins, which includes a thorough questionnaire about animal ownership history and veterinary relationships, attitudes towards animals, as well as financial viability, along with a comprehensive verbal interview. If the prospective adopter rents as opposed to owning his home, written permission from the landlord is required to finalize adoption
-All animal records are reviewed with prospective adopters to provide full disclosure about the animal including history and specific details about the animal's personality, medical conditions, nutritional needs, etc.
-Prospective adopters complete an adoption agreement form which is a legal contract, and pay an adoption donation which ranges from $45.00 to $125.00 depending on cat's age, medical concerns, special needs, etc.
-The animal can leave with the new family that day if everything goes well, the family is prepared for the animal at his/her new home, and assuming there are no concerns or issues that may warrant further investigation. Copies of all paperwork are given to the new family, along with any relevant supplies, etc.
-Each adoptive family receives a certificate for a free first veterinary visit (along a comprehensive list of local veterinary clinics,) to be redeemed within ten days
-TT's team snaps a "new forever family" portrait and frequently posts our new adoption stories on social media to be celebrated and enjoyed
-TT's team of volunteers performs direct follow-up over the course of the following weeks to make sure everyone is adjusting properly and to answer any questions
-TT has a 100 percent return policy for any reason, with the protection and care of our animals as first priority at all times
-TT is always available during the life of the animal, to provide support and answer questions, and to give medical referrals, behavioral advice and to keep track of how each adopted animal is progressing and adjusting
-TT receives literally hundreds of emails, photos, visits, and posts with wonderful stories about our cats and kittens who have found forever homes
-Most cats may be put "on hold" pending adoption (if available,) for up to 24 hours. A deposit toward the adoption fee is encouraged for this request. Under special circumstances a kitten may be put on hold subject to our manager's discretion
