SOS Feline Rescue would like to take every cat in need, the unfortunate reality is
that we cannot. However, if you will provide us with the information listed below, we can assist you in your effort to place the cat. We have many contacts in the rescue community and will send the information to all of them. If you are willing to foster the cat we will do a courtesy post on our Petfinder page.
Please provide ALL of the following information:
Good photos of each cat
, a complete description of the cat including name, age & gender,
whether or not it's up to date on vaccines and if it's spayed/neutered,
known behavior issues, known health issues, personality info, time frame you can
keep/foster the cat, your location, your contact information, and whether or not you intend to make a donation. Because rescue organizations depend on donations to survive, offering one makes it more likely that a rescue will take the cat.
Saving Our Strays Feral Cat Program
Feline Rescue does not have the staff or resources to trap feral cats
for you. However, we are happy to assist you with your effort and to
teach you the proper way to
humanely trap cats and manage a feral colony. You may use our traps and
recovery carriers and we will give you specific
instructions on how to do TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return). Please send us an
e-mail if you are
interested in learning more about our program.
Our goal is to empower others so that, together, we can help as many cats as possible who are in need.
If you plan to advertise a pet for adoption PLEASE READ the following information
Include the following information in your
ad: GOOD PHOTOS of the cat, a complete description of the cat including
name, age & gender, whether or not it's up to date on vaccines and
spayed/neutered, behavior issues, health issues, and personality info. Always charge an adoption fee of NO LESS than $25.

When you feel you may have found a good home, schedule a day

. By delivering the cat you have the opportunity to see the home and
to meet the potential adopter. The adopter is always "potential" until
you finalize the adoption by leaving the pet with his new owner.
Always go with your gut feeling when making the
final decision on an adoption. If your gut tells you it's not a good
idea, it's probably not. Do not leave the cat if you are not completely
comfortable that it will be safe and well taken care of.
NEVER give an animal away for free!
Animal abusers, dog fighters looking for
bait, etc., all scour Craigslist for free animals. Giving an
animal away for free is a sure way to get it tortured and killed.
