Hello there. My name is Melisandre, but you can call me Mel. I'm around 5.5 months old and fit as a fiddle. Did you know that only 1 out of every 5 orange tabbies are female? That means that I'm a bit more special than all of those common orange males. And if you look up other facts about orange tabbies, you'll learn that we all have that little "M" mark on our forehead, we're known to be pretty chill and laid back, and we also can be a little chatty. I'm probably all of those things.
I'm ok in most situations. I get along with all of my foster canine siblings, but I honestly prefer to be in a little bit more quiet section of the house. I'm quite affectionate, but prefer to have that affection doled out on my terms. I'm not a fan of being grabbed at, but I love to sit next to my foster dad, while he's working. When I'm next to him, I enjoy rubbing up against him and sitting right next to his computer. I'm also not that fond of being held for long periods of time, but then, again, I've been known to sit quietly on my foster mom's shoulder for extended periods.
I get along with both dogs and cats. I'll do fine with children, who know not to handle me roughly or grab at me. I'll do very well in a quiet, calm household.

We work hard to find the perfect home for all the dogs and cats in our care. Listed below is the sequence of events that we go through to assure that our pets and our applicants are the perfect match for each other:
1. Fill out and return our adoption application form.
2. After receiving your application, we will verify with your vet the care on your current or previous animals.
3. We will contact you to discuss your current situation and which pet you are interested in adopting.
4. After discussion, we will arrange a time for you to meet your prospective new family member. We may suggest you bring your other pets to this meeting.
5. If the initial meeting goes well and both parties agree to move forward with the adoption, we will arrange for a home visit.
6. If, at the home visit, both parties agree that the home is good match for the adoptable pet, we will move forward with the adoption.
7. We ask the new family to have a crate, food, toys, treats, etc. ready before the animal is transferred to the home.
8. At the home visit we will review the Home Visit Checklist and Adoption Checklist, review and sign the adoption contract, collect the adoption fee ($200 for dogs, $75 for kittens, and $50 for cats) and take the Happy Tail photo.
9. We will collect the medical records for your adopted pet and send them to you. We will also provide information to you on how to register your pet's microchip.
