After a full year in our care, Joy the cat has found the perfect home with a fellow survivor of Hurricane Sandy, the October 2012 storm that devastated the Northeast and left many people and animals homeless.
With lots of love and socialization from ASPCA staff, Joy learned to head-butt hands for pettings, rub against legs and zip around on her cat tree. As the last Sandy cat available for adoption, Joy was featured in hundreds of television and print stories. After seeing one of these stories, her future pet parent called the ASPCA and a match was made.
Joy is doing great: We hear she's very playful, purrs loudly when given tasty treats, and is totally at ease in her new Brooklyn apartment. We are thrilled that she has found a home in time for the holidays, but millions of other animals are not as lucky.
Your gift to the ASPCA allows us to care for countless at-risk animals—not only when disaster strikes, but also through ongoing programs like animal relocation and community partnerships. Your support has a real impact all year long. Please help us give animals nationwide—animals like Joy—the second chances they deserve.
