Hello- I'm DARLA! I am a 5 months old, dilute calico female, with short hair. My siblings and I were rescued from the cold winter weather-- I am so thankful to the volunteers at Advocates 4 Animals! We were left to fend for ourselves and it sure wasn't easy. I have a very tiny burn on the tip of my left ear-- I was just trying to keep warm in the engine of a car, but luckily I ran out just in time! I get along well with other cats, with dogs and with both children and adults. I have tested negative for FIV and Leukemia and will be up to date on shots, spayed and treated for the prevention of ear mites, fleas and worms. In addition, I am housetrained/litterbox trained. I just have one final vet visit to go- so please contact Advocates 4 Animals today if you are interested in me! Please note, I will be shy at first because of my tough past- but if you pet me, hold me and talk to me- after a little bit of time I will warm up to you and be forever devoted!
***Please note, cats are extremely routine oriented pets. It may take 2 week to fully adjust to a new home environment. Please remember to be patient when bringing a new feline into your home. ***
Please contact Advocates 4 Animals to begin the adoption process.
1. A phone or e-mail interview will be conducted
2. If approved, an Advocates 4 Animals member will contact you and schedule a 'meet & greet' with the adoptable pet The 'meet & greet' will be held in your home.
3. At that time of the home visit, we will assess if the pet(s) is a good match for both the family/individual adopting the pet and the home environment.
-All individuals living in the home must agree to adopt the pet into their home. All members of the home should be present during the 'meet & greet'-- including additional pets who live in the home.
-If Advocates 4 Animals determines that the pet is not a good fit for the potential adopter, this will be discussed at the time of the home visit.
-Every pet is different. Some pets have highly specialized needs (ie: type of environment, other pets, etc.) while others adjust easily to various environments. Felines typically take 2+ weeks to begin adjusting to their new home. All pets have been housed in foster homes while they wait to find a home to call their very own. All adoptable rescue pets are up to date on shots, treated for the prevention of ear mites, fleas and worms and have been spayed/neutered.
-Advocates 4 Animals requires an adoption donation fee of $50.00. The adoption donation assists us in rescuing and rehabilitating additional homeless pets. Our organization is run solely on donations and with volunteers. Without your support we could not continue our efforts!
Please contact Advocates 4 Animals and introduce yourself. Please be sure to let us know which pet you are interested in potentially adopting. We will respond within 48 hours of your request. Thank you for adopting a rescue pet!
