Alice was taken to the shelter- a shelter where 99% of the pets who enter it’s doors do not make it out alive unless an approved 501(c)3 rescue organization steps up in time (and there’s not much time given). Alice was pregnant and about to give birth any moment. But she was also facing almost certain death behind shelter bars. Thankfully, here at Advocates 4 Animals, we heard Alice’s story just in time and we were able to pull her to safety. Alice’s kittens were born several days after her rescue and all were happy, healthy and have since been adopted into loving, forever homes. But Alice is still waiting for her chance at adoption. She has so much love to share. Alice knows she is not a tiny kitten- but she is a beautiful, friendly adult cat who will be a wonderful addition to a happy home. She hopes to be adopted soon.

Cats are the #1 breed/pet killed in United States shelters/pounds (followed by Pit-Bulls and then Chihuahua’s). Add to that…shelter/pound euthanasia is the #1 cause of death in cats— more than any disease or illness. In today’s blog, we have highlighted some of our current adoptable adult cats who have been saved from death row at local shelters/pounds. Next time you are ready to adopt a pet, please consider adopting an adult cat- as they are in great need of assistance. They have so much love to share and hope to have a chance to show you how much happiness they will bring to your home!
Lavender was given to the shelter when her “guardians” were bored of her. She sat in the back of her tiny cage, huddled in a ball with her head against the back corner. She did not purr, she did not even move to open her eyes when we came to save her. She had already given up. She was scheduled for euthanasia that week. Now Lavender is here at A4A, happy, healthy and ready to be adopted. She is a beauty and full of love and fun!
