Cat Care Society has teamed with The Animal Rescue Site to raise funds to help Shelter Cat Jarrett recover from a fractured leg. The backstory: Jarrett was brought to Cat Care Society in early June when a Good Samaritan found him wandering in their back yard. He had bite wounds and scratches around his body, but most concerning was that Jarrett was walking with a limp. X-rays determined that Jarrett had a non-displaced fracture to his metacarpal bone in his front left leg.

Jarrett now has a cast to keep his front leg steady and in place and will remain on cage rest for the next four weeks. Once the fracture has healed then Jarrett will be ready for adoption! He is a very trusting soul and all he wants is a loving home to call his own.

Link to Donate - we're seeking 125 individuals to give just $16 each to help Jarrett's leg recover.

Adoption Tales By CCS Shelter Assistant Karlyn Mendez

Our 'Forever Home' recap from June 27th:

London (pictured here) - “Jasmine” found a home with one of our new volunteer socializers and her family. She is doing quite well in her new home and her personality has improved ten-fold. She chirps during playtime with owners and loves the fresh air from the window.

Wyatt & Alex - “Oder & Uller” were adopted by two men. Both cats like watching owners do their yard work and hate the washer and dryer. Oder likes to bat toys and Uller window watches.

Benji - “Arthur” also got a home with one of our volunteers. He shares his home with 4 other cats. He is still a bit timid but is content and purrs a lot.

Douglas - “D.C.” (Stands for Douglas Cat) is a very wired and hyper kind of guy. Definitely doesn’t need coffee to wake up! He is an only child and is adjusting to his home.

Cheddar - “Brio” feels very at home and tolerates the older cat. She enjoys her owner’s lap and loves pets.

Cat Care Society is looking for Volunteers for Kitten Fostering

Kitten season is in full swing and Cat Care Society is in need of families who can foster orphaned kittens, nursing moms with kittens, and pregnant mom cats. The time commitment for fostering kittens is anywhere from two months to two weeks depending on their age, health and temperament. CCS will provide all medical care for your fosters. We do require all foster kittens get a medical checkup at the shelter at 3 weeks, 6 weeks, and 9 weeks. This is to ensure their overall health and also to administer important vaccines required of young kittens. Once they are old enough to be spayed and neutered they can come to the shelter to find their furrever homes!

Required: 

Spare room away from household pets

Driver’s license/insured auto for transport

Why so many adoption specials? Quoting from the just released Cat Care Quarterly:

“'Why so many adoption specials?', you may be wondering. 'Don’t adoption specials devalue the cats we care so much for?!'

No, the specials don’t devalue the cats at all. We’ve had a few questions about the specials, and thought it might be wise to address these questions in a Cat Care Quarterly cover article."
