Missy's Golden Years


Update April 2: Thank you to Shirley for giving Missy a forever home!
Edward loves Missy, but he can no longer care for her during his illness. He and his daughter would like to find her a new, loving home where she will be comfortable in her golden years.

Missy is a 15 year old Calico short-hair. She is spayed and declawed in the front. As an indoor cat, she does not like to leave her familiar surroundings and loved ones. She likes to stay in her room and leaves to explore, periodically.

Please help provide peace of mind for this family by helping spread the word to get Missy adopted. Hope can help you with start up costs and supplies.

Loving Larry


Update 2/14: Larry, along with 20 pounds of food and two bags of litter, arrived at Michelle’s house on Valentine’s day. He rubbed against her legs and checked out the entire apartment before he nestled in. Michelle is grateful for her lovely Valentine’s gift, and we are grateful to Michelle for giving Larry a new home!

Can you help find a home for Larry?

Larry absolutely loves human interaction, and he is in need of a new home where he can cuddle to his heart’s content. He’s a charming orange tabby who is about 8 years old. He gets along well with both dogs and cats, and has been well cared for by Dr. Gross at the Suburban Animal Hospital. Larry is neutered, declawed in the front, and microchipped. He is current with his rabies vaccine and will have an additional checkup on February 14th.

As they are dealing with the challenges of serious illness, Larry’s owner and family would be deeply grateful to anyone who could adopt this affectionate kitty.

Adoption Opportunity: Spanky the Cat


Update 2/5: We are happy to report that Spanky went to live with Anne! The family is relieved, knowing that he's in good hands.

Spanky was a kitten when Anne adopted him from a rescue, 7 years ago. Now, Spanky needs to be rescued again as Anne's health prevents her from caring for him.

Spanky is friendly and affectionate, but as with many felines, he prefers to be the initiator. He is good with other cats, but his dog interactions are unknown. He has always been a healthy cat, with a local vet in place.

If you are interested in adopting Spanky, please contact Colette at 239-985-7728.

Make Friends with Tazzie

Update 12/1 Tazzie has a new home! Thank you to everyone who helped to spread the word.

Catherine's last wish was to find a good home for Tazzie, a 9-year old female calico, spayed, with claws. Catherine found her when she was about 6 months old and they have been together since. 

Tazzie is friendly with people, but has not spent much time with children. She has always been a single pet, and prefers dogs to other cats. Her personality is reserved, but she welcomes new people into her life. She would do best with a single adult or adult couple. She is perfectly content being alone for a day or two – not a needy cat, but she prefers being around people and likes to watch TV, nap together, and snuggle at bedtime.

Tazzie needs to find a new home. Hope can help you with start up supplies and support. If you are interested in adopting Tazzie, please contact Colette at (239) 985-7728.

Touched by an Angel


Update June 20: Angel has found a forever home.

Angel lived with Effie in assisted living until Effie's recent passing in Hope.  Angel is a white and grey 9-year old kitty who loves to be with her "person." She is healthy, spayed and up to date on all of her shots.  Her veterinary records will be available to her adoptive family.

Although Angel has temporary housing, she is not used to sharing a home with other animals and would greatly benefit from one-on-one attention and care.

If you are a stay-at-home person who likes to have lots of cuddle time, consider giving Angel a new home. Contact Colette at (239) 985-7728.

A Tale of Two Cats


Update May 30: Sasha and Phillip were fortunate be able to remain together, in what is described as a ‘loving home.’

Bridgette recently passed away in Hope.  She left behind two bonded sibling cats, Sasha and Phillip.

Both cats have lived with Bridgette since they were kittens. Both are male, neutered, and their front paws are declawed.  They are indoor cats only.

Sasha is approximately 12 years old. He is friendly once he knows you.  Phillip is approximately 13 years old and is the more social of the two. They get along with other cats but it is unknown as to how they would react to dogs.

A neighbor is caring for the cats, but is unable to give them permanent homes. Bridgette hoped that the cats would be able to stay together.

Gato Needs an Amigo


Update May 30: Several people expressed an interest in taking Gato home. The family chose the one that seemed the ‘perfect match.’ Gato and new family, seem very happy together!

Flor passed away in our services, leaving behind her 4-5-year old cat, Gato (‘cat’ in Spanish).  Gato is a spayed female cat that lived with Flor since she was a kitten.  She is an indoor only cat and her front paws are declawed.  She is described as friendly, loving, gentle and liked to sit on Flor’s lap, watching TV.

Can you help us find a home for Gato? Hope can help you with start up costs and supplies. Call 239-985-7728.
