Mother Cat and Kittens Looking for a Home

Kitty, Snowy and Sable are a terrific trio in need of a forever home. Zoey the female Cairn Terrier is also up for adoption.

 

Once upon a time, Kitty the Cat gave birth to two kittens in someone's backyard. The family then came to and are in need of a home. Here is this week's compilation of the newest arrivals to the shelter.

Kitty the Cat

Kitty is an affectionate gray and white Tuxedo cat. She is approximately one year old and recently gave birth to Snowy and Sable. The kittens are too young to leave their mother 

Animals for Life said Kitty will be available for adoption around July 10, after she is spayed. Staff said they are hoping for the following outcome: 

Wouldn't it be wonderful if she and her babies could live out the rest of their lives together in a new home? We would love to see that happen, but will also consider a solo adoption for her if the situation is right. She is so sweet with people that she's sure to be a popular girl!

Snowy and Sable

Snowy and Sable were born only three weeks ago to mother cat, Kitty. The family was found living in someone's yard shortly after the kittens were born.

Animals For Life came to their rescue and they will be ready to go to their new home around July 10. The kittens are active and already exploring their foster home. They will be vetted and spayed/neutered prior to adoption.

Animals for Life is accepting applications now on Kitty as well as Snowy and Sable. Those interested in getting the process started and meeting the trio may contact Animals for Life.

Zoey, a Female Cairn Terrier 

Zoey was dropped off at the doorstep one rainy night and she is looking for a family that will love her forever. She seems to be fairly well house trained, loves to sit on the laps of shelter volunteers and thrives on attention.

Zoey is a little shy upon first meeting but warms up quickly. This one to two year old female gets along well with the other dogs and enjoys watching the cats in their cages at the shelter.

Animals for Life staff think she will be a great addition to a home with cats. Zoey likes to take walks and she is always happy, especially when getting her belly rubbed.

She would love a home with kids since she absolutely loves the company of small children.

We got our beautiful 13 year old orange female cat at Wonderful Animal Adoption on Spring Hill Road. She and her mother and brothers were rescued by them. The babies were only 3 weeks old. Would do it again - in a heartbeat.

Got my kitten there as well. VERY sick little baby! We spent over $600.00 to get her well.( Thats beside the $175.00 to adopt her) She had respritory problems, flies, eye infection,ring worm and malnourished. She did not have shots - as we were told. We were told she was a he. We were told "he" needed to be neutered -SHE was already spayed. She is the happiest little baby now. We love her and spoil her. By the way, Denise - The shelter on Spring Hill Rd is NOT " Wonderful Animal Adoption - its SPCA. The only reason I would adopt there is to save another life!

How on earth can you confuse a he with a she? Couldn't you tell just by looking on Day 1 whether it was a he or a she?

Normally in 8 week old kittens, it's pretty difficult to tell male from female, I understand from her Vet. Since we never had a baby that tiny it was all new to us, so we took her word for it. Either way, we fell in love with her immediately and don't regret one second of our choice. I forgot to add to the list of health issues listed above that she also had terrible ear mites. Poor little thing. Hope that answers your questions.

Thanks, JoAnn but it WAS Animal Adoption when we adopted our kitten in 2000. She is 12 now - hasn't been SPCA that long.

I will NEVER EVER go back to that horrible place on Spring Hill Road. It was called the Adoption Network back when I was looking for a little dog four or five years ago. The man who runs the place is Fred Acker, and he is neither a businessman nor a gentleman. He's violent, often in trouble with the law, and should be in jail. He's giving the SPCA a bad name!

Hey Shirley....... You forgot to mention how he rips people off! Charging us $175.00 to adopt a kitten is hidious! He said it included shots and nutering (spaying) I got none of the above. I wrote an email demanding some of my money back and got nothing in return. I think his brain Zigged when it should have Zagged! Not the sharpest knife in the drawer - for sure. People STAY AWAY and spread the word to others!

I never got the chance to find out anything! Acker met me at the parking lot. When I told him that his phone message said he was having a public adoption, he immediately called me a liar! He accused me of acting crazy and ordered me off the property! I was so upset that I wrote to the Monroe Town Hall and told them what happened, thinking I would get the turkey fired. I got a phone call explaining that I wasn't at the Monroe Animal Shelter as I had thought, but they knew all about this guy and he was under police investigation. Any businessman - any gentleman - given the same circumstances, would have said something more like, "I'm sorry you were inconvenienced. Why don't you try the animal shelter down the road?" At which time I could have said, "Oh, I thought I was at the animal shelter!" The mystery of the phone message would have been solved, he could have given me his business card, and I wouldn't have felt threatened, and as though I wasted my time and gas getting there for nothing. Acker would have had another potential adoptee returning at a more convenient time. But NO! He flew into a rage for no reason. Only a fool with something to hide would have acted the way Acker did. And doesn't anybody find it suspicious that he only allows adopters onto his property BY APPOINTMENT? He never has a public adoption. Never a time for anyone to drop in? This is definitely a place to avoid!
