Every day we post photos of cats and dogs on our blog who are looking for good homes. Like most of our readers, we wish we could bring every single one of these deserving pets home. (Sigh.) The great news is there is a much better alternative.
If you’re looking for a cat with a big personality, Teresa is the one for you! This playful feline is an ASPCA office foster cat, and she keeps the staff entertained every day with her many quirks. She loves attention and affection from her special people, and she’s ready for anything that comes her way.
Teresa would thrive in a teens-and-up home without other cats. To ensure her optimal urinary health, she’ll need her new family to provide her with prescription food. Our Adoptions team can talk you through Teresa’s care routine. Adopt Teresa today!
Teresais available for adoption at the ASPCA Adoption Center. If you are interested in adopting please call our Adoptions department in New York City at (212) 876-7700, ext. 4900. To learn more about Teresa, please visit her page.
When Nubbins the cat was found, he was emaciated, riddled with birdshot, and had tumors hanging from both of his ears. But the minute he was removed from his carrier by his rescuers, he started purring. He knew he was finally safe; relief was here at last.
Dr. Patricia Wagner, a veterinarian at the ASPCA Animal Hospital, performed surgery on the sweet feline and fell in love with his kind demeanor. Soon after, Nubbins joined Dr. Wagner’s household. He is incredibly grateful for his second chance and gets along swimmingly with the family’s resident parakeet.
In fact, kitty and bird are stars of the 2014 ASPCA calendar. Check out this adorable behind-the-scenes video of Nubbins sitting for his photo shoot.
Have you received your 2014 calendar? Want another one for friends or family? (They make great gifts!) Make a small donation to the ASPCA, and we’ll send you our 2014 calendar today. Thank you, as always, for your support. It makes stories like Nubbins’ possible.
It’s nearly impossible to begin a new school year without laying out some cash—but the good news is that when you shop for everyday necessities, you can raise money for the ASPCA at the same time!
When you use the online shopping portalWe-Care.com to shop at your favorite stores, the ASPCA automatically receives a donation at no cost to you. You can find outfits and bookbags, of course, but from computers to eyeglasses, so many other back-to-school items are carried by We-Care’s merchants—the site also hosts more than 10 textbook sellers!
You can sign up for our We-Care.com secure browser extension here. It takes less than a minute to set up, and once you do, a reminder will let you know when you’ve visited a participating merchant’s website.
Thank you for thinking of animals while you shop for your family. This support has made a real difference for the ASPCA!
