Find-a-Friend Friday: Achilles

April 5th, 2013 10:11 am by Kelly


 

Achilles is a ruggedly handsome guy who comes from a hoarding situation. He’s in relatively good physical condition is well-socialized given his history. Achilles lost most of his left ear, though the HSGKC doesn’t say how. You’ll have to ask them when you go to meet this beautiful boy – you know you wanna!

Bonus points: Achilles is friendly with other kitties, so why not take advantage of HSGKC’s Adopt-a-Buddy program?

 

 

Achilles
Ragdoll: An adoptable cat in Kansas City, KS
Medium • Senior • Male

Date of birth: 2004

3/30/13: Achilles is a pretty Ragdoll kitty. He has beautiful blue eyes and Seal Point markings. He is 9 years old.

Achilles had been living in a hoarding situation with about 30 other cats. The cats were in fairly good condition, but they did not get a lot of socialization. Achilles is actually quite social given his history. He loves to roll around on his back! It may take him a little time to transition into a new home, but he’s doing really well with people here. He gets along with other cats, too.

Achilles has a damaged ear but it’s completely healed. He’s been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and tested for FIV and feline leukemia.

MORE ON ADOPTING OUR CATS…

> Our goal is to send you home with a healthy pet and any information and support you may need to help your new pet adjust to his or her new home. All of our cats and kittens are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and tested for FIV and feline leukemia. Kittens who are too young to receive all the necessary kitten boosters and/or first rabies shot may be brought back to us for those vaccines at no extra charge. Take advantage of our ADOPT-A-BUDDY program: Adopt two cats or kittens together at a greatly reduced adoption fee!

> Most of our cats are not confined in cages but instead live in our spacious and sunny cat rooms. It’s a great environment for them, it allows us to get to know them well, and it’s a nice environment for you to come in to visit — and find your perfect match!

> An application is required to adopt a pet and applicants must meet our adoption requirements. If you decide you’d like to adopt one of our pets, we reserve the pet for you but we generally don’t send the pet home with you that same day. Please visit our web site at hsgkc.org for more information about our adoption process, our adoption fees and all that’s included, and for a pet adoption application.

Thank you for searching for a shelter pet!

 

 

Find-a-Friend Friday: Gigi

The Humane Society of Greater Kansas City has so many wonderful cats available for adoption, y’all! Take for example Ms. Gigi here. She’s been living at HSGKC HQ for years now and gets on well with humans and other cats, despite her feral beginnings. At eight years of age, she could use a proper home to retire to. Preferably with some kitty friends! Maybe even a second cat from HSGKC? Hey, it’s an idea. THINK ABOUT IT!

 

Gigi
Tabby – Brown/Domestic Short Hair Mix: An adoptable cat in Kansas City, KS
Small • Senior • Female

Date of birth: 11/03

3/1/12: Gigi is a very pretty little Brown Tabby girl. She’s very petite and she has a gorgeous coat. She loves other cats and she’d really like to find a home with another kitty or two to hang out with. She has a very gentle nature.

Gigi was a feral kitten who was fostered by one of our staff members when she was very young. She’s still quite shy, but she’s also extremely sweet once she feels comfortable with someone.

Gigi is 8 years old now and has lived at the shelter for most of her life. She’s never lived in a cage here; she’s always had free roam of our cat rooms.

Gigi would do best in a quiet home and she’ll need her new person to be patient with her until she settles in. She’d make a nice companion for another cat and having another cat in the home would be comforting to her. She’s a real sweetheart and just needs to be given a chance.

Gigi has been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and tested for FIV and feline leukemia.

 

Find-a-Friend Friday: Clementine and Heather

Sisters Clementine and Heather need a home, asap!

Clementine and Heather are a pair of sisters who were originally adopted from The Humane Society of Greater Kansas City when they were just wee little kittens. Several years and a new baby later, and the two are back at the shelter and once again in need of a home. Here’s what HSGKC has to say about them:

Clementine & Heather
Calico/Domestic Medium Hair-White Mix: An adoptable cat in Kansas City, KS
Medium • Adult • Female

Date of birth: 5/04

11/18/11: Clementine & Heather are sisters who are looking for a home together. Clementine is a beautiful white cat with a medium hair coat. She’s an affectionate girl and she gets along with other cats. Heather is a Calico kitty with a pretty coat and an adorable round face. She is very friendly and curious. Both girls get along with other cats. They are 7 years old.

We’ve posted more photos of Clementine & Heather on their individual Petfinder pages.

Heather and Clementine originally came to us when they were little kittens. At that time they were very sick with an upper respiratory virus and it caused horrible eye infections in the kittens. Heather had to have an eye removed at that time because it was so badly damaged. But she’s had no other upper respiratory or eye problems since she was young. Both of Clementine’s eyes were saved. She occasionally has some eye discharge problems and needs medication when that happens.

Heather and Clementine get along well together. They’ve been together their entire lives so we’d like to find them a home together. They were originally adopted when they were young and returned recently due to a new baby in the family and not enough time to care for them.

 

Please consider opening your heart and home to these beautiful girls – both of them! – in their time of need. ‘Tis the season, am I right folks?

Find-a-Friend Friday: O’Malley

O’Malley, a fluffy, brown and tan colored Shepherd/Chow Chow Mix, smiles for the camera, tennis ball and fuzzy bone in hand. Errr, paw.

I am totally in love with this week’s Friend in need, the super goofy and crazy adorable O’Malley. I know, I know; I excitedly make such proclamations at least once every other week, but still. That doesn’t make my squealing any less earnest. Besides, I am a sucker for “special needs” animals.

What’s O’Malley’s “special need,” you ask? He’s missing one of his front legs, which had to be amputated due to an especially serious injury. Not that O’Malley lets this minor inconvenience slow him down; not much, anyway. If you were to ask him, he’d probably laugh at your “special needs” labeling. He’s smiley like that.

O’Malley is currently staying with the kind folks at The Humane Society of Greater Kansas City (HSGKC), who describe him thusly:

O’Malley
Shepherd/Chow Chow Mix: An adoptable dog in Kansas City, KS
Medium • Adult • Male

Date of birth: 9/17/08

O’Malley is one of our MOVIE MUTT SUPERSTARS! Go to our web site to see a fun music video of O’Malley.

11/3/10: O’Malley is a cute and fluffy Shepherd/Chow mix pup. He’s friendly and sweet-natured. He is 2 years old.

We transferred O’Malley to our shelter from the KCK Animal Control shelter as part of our Ray of Hope program. His right front leg had been badly broken. We took him to a vet to try to save it, but the injury was too severe and we had to have his leg amputated. O’Malley gets around well, though, and he loves to run and play– he even fetches! (see his video)

O’Malley gets along well with female dogs. He gets along with most other male dogs as long as they’re not too dominant. If you have a dog you could arrange to bring him or her to our shelter to meet O’Malley to make sure they get along.

O’Malley has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and tested for heartworms. He’s short and stocky and weighs about 50 lbs.

MORE ON ADOPTING OUR DOGS…

> Our goal is to send you home with a healthy pet and any information and support you may need to help your new pet adjust to his or her new home. All of our dogs & puppies have been spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed, treated for fleas & ticks, tested for heartworms (6 mo. and over), and are on monthly heartworm preventative. Puppies who are too young to receive all the necessary puppy boosters and/or first rabies shot may be brought back to us for those vaccines at no extra charge. You will also receive a leash, collar, 5 lbs of Science Diet, toys, and educational materials including an excellent dog training DVD. And we’ll give your dog a bath before he or she goes home!

> Please visit the Pet Adoptions page of our web site for more information about our adoption process. An application is required to adopt a pet and applicants must meet our adoption requirements. You can download a pet adoption application from our web site and then fax or email it back to us.

> Please note that most of our dogs do require a fenced yard, although there may be some who are appropriate for apartment living or circumstances where a fence may not be required.
