Bella is looking for a home!
(11/17/2012) Bella is an approximately 2-year old grey and white cat who we rescued from Busch Campus at Rutgers University. She is very sweet and friendly, loves to be pet, and has been spayed and vaccinated for rabies and distemper. Her kittens have already been adopted, but Bella is still looking for a permanent home. Bella just had a followup vet visit and received a clean bill of health, so she is ready to be adopted! If you are interested in adopting this sweet girl, please contact us.
We need to find a home for Bella soon because her foster family can not keep her any longer; they are expecting company for Thanksgiving who are allergic to cats. If you can't adopt Bella but would like to foster her, please contact us.
Please note that prospective adopters will be asked to complete an application form, and sign an adoption contract if the application is approved. Our adoption fee for Bella is $100. The adoption fee helps cover our veterinary costs.

Gandalf and Bilbo are looking for a home!
(9/15/2012) Gandalf and Bilbo (left) are two 8 week-old grey and white boy kittens who were recently rescued from Busch Campus. They have have been neutered, had their first FVRCP vaccines, and both test negative for Felv and FIV. They will need their vaccination booster in October 2012. These two brothers are playful, outgoing, and affectionate. They love being pet and scratched. They will let you approach them and pick them up. As rescues (semi-feral), they are still a little shy and squirm when held, but they are improving in leaps and bounds. They are gradually getting used to being held for periods of time and purr voraciously when their foster mom comes into the room! Bilbo is the more adventurous and inquisitive of the two, while Gandalf likes to sit back and observe before getting into the fray! They are litter-mates and are a bonded pair; therefore, it is ideal that they be adopted together. If you have any questions about adoption or advice on raising two kittens together, please don't hesitate to contact us.
Gandalf and Bilbo are currently being shown for adoption at the PetSmart in Princeton, NJ (111 Nassau Park Blvd, Princeton, NJ 08540; (609) 520-9200). Prospective adopters will be asked to complete an application form, and sign an adoption contract if the application is approved. Our adoption fees are $100 for one cat or $150 for two cats. The adoption fee covers our veterinary costs.
