Commitment Of The Heart

At Pet Patrol Cat Adoption and Rescue, we treat our foster kitties like our own family pets. So when a foster cat becomes elderly, develops controllable medical concerns or is just not ready for adoption, we do not euthanize them, even when faced with high medical bills. As long as the cat is not suffering and can still enjoy life, Pet Patrol will provide ongoing medical care, a good foster home, and a lot of love.

This commitment of the heart comes with a cost. While our foster caregivers are all volunteers, the medical care is financed from our nonprofit group’s limited funds, which are needed for veterinary exams, vaccinations, medications, and spay or neuter surgeries.

Donations play a key role in how many cats we can rescue each year. As a result, we are seeking sponsors for some Pet Patrol cats whose time is short, or who have little chance of finding a special home. Being un-adoptable to the general public, these kitties would love to live out their days with Pet Patrol volunteers, who have opened their hearts and homes to them.

The following profiles are of Pet Patrol cats who are part of our Commitment of the Heart Program. If you wish to sponsor one of them, call us at 519.669.1979 (you can provide one payment or monthly payments). A Pet Patrol volunteer will send you more information about the kitty and photos. Your commitment of the heart will help these wee ones to live a happy life, carefree and filled with love.

Rescue:

Farrah may never have had a proper home before Pet Patrol rescued her, but she certainly knew how to provide for her litter. Being unspayed and abandoned on the street, it was just a matter of time before she became pregnant, and she found the perfect shelter to have her kittens: a garden shed that backed onto a restaurant. The shed was dry and filled with storage, so she could make a nest. The orchard in front of it, leading to the house, was over grown but provided her little ones with a wonderland for playing. The restaurant dumpster allowed Farrah to scrounge for food daily. A student began feeding Farrah cat food, when she saw how thin she was, and soon the little kittens emerged too. A Pet Patrol volunteer went over and it took only 3 hours to rescue the four kittens, and finally Farrah was brought in the next evening. All were frightened and wary of people, because they had never been handled before. It took time and patience, but finally they came around and enjoy the affections and good life people can provide.

Personality:

Farrah is a beautiful pewter grey kitty, with highlights of blue when she lays in the sun. She is not a big cat, but compact and solid. Farrah is enjoying her life without the extra stress of hunting for food, and protecting her active kittens from predators. She is quite a couch potato now, and is very good with the other cats in her foster home. She is still shy with new people, but allows her foster Dad to pet her every evening (it has become a ritual). She has no interest in going outside, that has only lead to fear, starvation and exposure to the elements in the past. Farah enjoys life on a comfy bed or in front of the fireplace. She is part of our Committment of the Heart Program since she chooses other pets over people. 🙂
