Feline Rescue is an all volunteer, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in northern Sonoma County where there is a high percentage of economically disadvantaged residents. Pet cats, often not spayed or neutered, are abandoned with alarming frequency due, in growing part, to the declining economy and skyrocketing foreclosures and evictions. We also have a burgeoning number of "roaming" feral or semi-feral cats, also not spayed or neutered.Featured Cat of the Week!
There are absolutely no institutional services available for cats in need in our area. There is no local shelter, no contract with Sonoma County for cats, and no local city services for injured or ill cats. We are a "shelter without walls" and "animal control with a heart," operating with a tiny budget and no paid staff or administrative overhead.
DOB(Approx): 1-2 years old
Breed Mix: DSH Orange Tabby
Neutered, vaccinated, complete vet exam
If only cats would talk! AJ's story would certainly be interesting. Here's what we know. He was clearly an abandoned pet because he is so very human-oriented. A homeless young man "Trevor" found AJ at the river park in Healdsburg and befriended AJ. When Trevor made his way to Cloverdale, he took AJ with him. AJ lived on the street, with Trevor and others feeding him. When AJ was attacked by another cat, Feline Rescue took responsibility for AJ's vet care. AJ is now in a very caring foster home, just waiting for his forever home.
AJ is handsome, a buff colored Tabby boy with gold eyes and an easy purr. He is very, very people friendly, loves to be petted, loves laps. He might be fine with another sweet cat or gentle dog...should be fine with respectful children.
One exception to our "indoor only rule".....After months of trying to keep AJ indoors, his foster mom relented and now is allowing him outside during parts of the day, and she's home almost all the time. He stays in the yard and hunts for bugs and lizards and is much, much happier. While there always risks, even in a very safe area like this one, we're making an exception for AJ. We seek a home for him where he will be able to go outside in as safe an environment as possible.
We have a few videos of AJ which we're happy to share.
