Unfortunately, we sometimes come across cats and dogs that are strays. In these cases, we do our best to find these guys a terrific fur-ever home!
Prior to adoption, all animals are assessed for health and character. They are given vaccinations and are spayed or neutered, and cats are tested for common viral infections (FELV and FIV).
In most cases, our cats are adopted as indoor only cats, and adopters must agree to provide continued preventative health care, and medical care as needed in the future.
If you are interested in taking one of our furry friends home with you, please contact us at the clinic and arrange to come meet them face to face!
As most of our clientele know, RVC occasionally houses stray or surrendered cats while they look for their furever home. Sometimes we get extra special cases in, like Sobek and Anubis. These two have been with us for 4 months now and they are still looking for their family. They came from the same household and were surrendered by the an owner that was no longer in a position to be able to care for them.
They have been together most of their lives so they have an amazing bond, they will often clean each other and cuddle. Because of that bond it would break our hearts to separate them so we are looking for a family that is able to welcome two new cats! Anubis has a very shy personality when it comes to new places and people but once he warms up to you he loves affection and to ride around on your shoulders. Sobek is more confident and willing to roam around the house right away but he also loves scratches and to be carried around. And both are just content to sit on your lap while you’re watching TV or reading!
We have had some trouble integrating them into our cat family at the clinic, as they don’t seem to play well with others and will pick fights with a couple of our resident cats. In order to keep everyone safe and happy, they have to be separated from the rest of our cats in their own room and let out to the main area for short time periods . Because of these issues Sobek and Anubis need to go to a home with no other cats. They did not live with dogs previously, and when they have come into contact with them at RVC, they seem very nervous, so ideally they would be welcomed into a home with no current animals or possibly in a home with dogs that will give them their space! Sobek was experiencing a feline asthma attack when he was surrendered to us. He was successfully treated , He had a mild recurrence at one point when we were painting our clinic! Because of this he would need to be in a home with no smoking indoors and minimal use of strong scents.
