She's Been Waiting Nearly 800 Days for a Home

Wednesday, February 1, 2012 - 4:45pm

Funny, assertive and loving Serena came to the ASPCA after a staff member found her living on the streets. That was in December 2009—779 days ago! That makes Serena the animal in our care who has waited the longest to find her family.

So she could get a break from the shelter life, Serena is currently at our administrative headquarters in Midtown Manhattan, sharing an office with ASPCA Vice President of Marketing and Licensing Elysia Howard. Naturally, we asked Elysia to tell us more about Serena. Here’s what she had to say:

Serena is a VERY cool cat. She is a spunky, forward, I-am-the-center-of-your-universe girl who will take over your space as fast as your heart. She will unabashedly plant herself in the middle of the room, in the middle of your conversation, on top of your desk, and even claim the very chair you are sitting in. All the while looking you in the eyes with this "Is this all you have for me?" expression.

Serena is so special that I don’t mind if being petted is not her thing. She grants me a few caresses to make me happy, and will lick my hand so I know she loves me back. Serena is looking for someone to accept her as she is: a smart, sassy lady!

If you’re an experienced cat adopter in a 14+ household, and you’d like Serena to be your only cat, please call our Animal Placement department in New York City at (212) 876-7700, ext. 4900. If you’re outside NYC but are able to come meet Serena and then work out transportation for her, give us a call. She’ll be here waiting for you!

Hi there,,,,

I have read about Serena, she's adorable in her black and white furr. And I do realy wanted her to be my fourth daughter -- I have three cats at home right now, and they don't mind to have one more fellas at home --

Is it possible for me? to take serene home?

bcouse I lived a thousands miles away from her country, I live in Indonesia. And I don't have sufficient credits to pick her up.

If u don't mind, -- but if you do mind, please let me know -- is possible if you take Serena to come here?

it's sad to know that she's waitting to long to have a home, and love.

This is my Adress and phone number, it will be so glad to hear from you as soon as possible.

Thankyou and huge hug and kiss for Serena
