Fonzie is an adorable and oh-so-sweet little baby boy. He and his siblings are waiting patiently for their forever homes but surely won’t last long! Fonzie can be met and paid for and then will be able to go home on Friday, Jan. 25, after his neuter surgery. His adoption fee is $60 and includes his neuter, vaccines, FIV/FeLV test and microchip.

We received an email telling us these kittens’ momma was poisoned and died..and these little kittens were surely headed for a life outside in Paterson, N.J. Well not so! This shot was snapped yesterday at our vet! We were able to convince the young woman whose cat it was to turn them over to us. They are receiving the best care possible and this grant allows us to continue to do so.

Big Leo came to us in December 2013 when we received a call from the local Wounded Warrior Program. Leo’s family had been affected by deployments and later by traumatic brain injury. When an extended family member was brought in to care for his people, the extended family member dumped Leo on the side of the road in another county to avoid caring for him.

We brought Leo into our facility and have housed him since. He was deficient in vet care, hadn’t been neutered and had tummy issues due to poor quality food. In our care, everything has been brought up to date, he’s been “fixed” and is getting the attention and exercise he needs, allowing him to be a calm, well adjusted boy!

UPDATE: May 8, 2014: Big Leo went to his forever home. He now has a big fenced yard, four children, a trampoline, lots of tree branches to chew on — it’s a rough life. I will miss him terribly, but we did right by Leo, and he is in a wonderful home with lots of children to play with and watch over. Godspeed, Big Leo.
