Finn

Listing Date: October 17, 2020

Birth Date: October 26, 2016

Breed: Domestic Short Hair

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Vaccination Status: Up to Date

Physical Description: Beautiful, gray domestic short hair neutered male

Personality Description: Finn is a sweet, cuddly, beautiful baby. My daughter is sadly allergic to him. He's the doggiest cat you'll meet. He greets you when you get home, he comes when he is called and sits under the table while you eat. He isn't a huge day time snuggler, but he loves to snuggle at night. He does have a little cat sister (who we are rehoming as well) that he plays with NONSTOP, so we feel that a single cat home would be best.

History: My daughter is allergic to him 🙁 as well as we have a 3 year old spayed female who he terrorizes all day (he's not aggressive with her but he just plays crazy all day-doesn't let her walk in front of her without him jumping on her, chases her up the stairs). We have to get rid of her as well, but we have found a home for her.

Personality Description: Vivi loves to play but will also cuddle up once she's tuckered out (naps with my husband all the time). She loves to rub on your leg when she's ready for a snack but all in all she's extremely self-sustaining.

History: My husband and I have tried desperately to be a 2 cat household for the last few months (ended up adopting a 2nd cat that we mistook for our cat Vivi when Vivi went missing for about 2 weeks back in June) but unfortunately the 2 kitties we have just aren't getting along and it's time to see if we can find Vivi a new home. When I adopted Vivi originally she came from a multiple cat household, just our recent unique situation is one that just isn't working out. When she's introduced to her new home she's perfectly fine with both dogs & cats. She just turned 3, is perfectly healthy (& spayed) and is up-to-date on all her vaccinations.

He is such a beautiful and gentle soul, and he truly deserves his happy ending.

History: Cody is a former feral, possibly 9 years old and he is nearly blind and has some tooth loss. He has spent his entire life outdoors just trying to survive. He is FIV pos. but he can still live a happy and full life.

Ollie

Listing Date: December 31, 2019

Birth Date: September 1, 2017

Weight: 70 pounds

Breed: Mixed - hound/pointer

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Vaccination Status: Up-to-date

Physical Description: Black and white

Personality Description: Ollie is a happy, energetic, and loving dog. He is great with other dogs and kids and loves to play and receive attention.

History: I found Ollie outside of my house in rural Warren County, NC when he was around 10 weeks old. He was small, cold, and hungry. I thought that I would keep him for a few weeks and here we are two years later. He is a highly energetic and loving dog that loves to run, play with other dogs at the dog park, and sleep next to you. Shortly after moving to Durham, I realized that I wasn't going to have the time or money to take care of him the way he needs to be taken care of. I work 9-10+ hour days and he stays either crated or holed up in my room. I am looking for a home where he will have plenty of room to run outside off-leash or with an owner who will take him to the dog park or on daily runs. He loves to be petted and to have attention, so I am ideally looking for someone who wants to give attention to a very loving and lovable dog.

If interested in Ollie, contact Alex Borst at [email protected].


Gypsy

Listing Date: December 27, 2019

Birth Date: December 1, 2016

Breed: Mixed

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Vaccination Status: We got him a rabies shot and 1st of 2 distemper. Needs 2nd distemper mid-January.

Physical Description: This is a wonderfully sweet stray kitty that has been living in our neighborhood. We were able to crate him and take him to our vet and found that he's in great health, neutered, about 4-5 years old, 7-1/2 pounds. Negative for FeLV. He's got beautiful green eyes, a very healthy coat and per our vet, is in great health.

Personality Description: This kitty is very trusting of people although remains territorial about his food - understandably. He walks around with his tail high indicating happiness and lets us scratch his head, ears, etc. With a little patience and time he will be the best indoor cat. He was easy to crate and is very curious. Also loves to eat.

History: Patches is a stray who's been living in our neighborhood (downtown Chapel Hill) for a few months now. He has no chip and has his ear tipped which would indicate a feral cat but he's quite friendly and we think may have had college students taking care of him.

He doesn’t bark at other dogs and is calm-mannered. He loves to relax, but his favorite things are running outside, playing fetch, and hiking.

History: He has protein-losing enteropathy, which means his body doesn’t process fat. He cannot have regular dog food, rather his vet has formulated a diet that works well for him. It’s $80 a month for this food. Furthermore, I make couscous and baked tilapia twice a week for him and store it in the fridge. His health insurance is transferable, and 90% of all possible future medical is covered. It also covers his monthly supplements, which cost $6 a month. He’s more than worth it. He’s the most loving dog you’ll ever meet. Call or text me (720) 793-6960 if interested to set up a meet and greet!

Simba

Listing Date: October 30, 2019

Birth Date: March 27, 2019

Breed: Tabby

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Vaccination Status: vaccinations are up to date

Physical Description: Beautiful orange tabby male with "classic" pattern.

Personality Description: He is very playful and may benefit from a home with an owner who can give him a lot of play time or with another energetic kitten to keep up with him and wear him out. He has a very loud purr and loves neck scratches. He is affectionate, but not yet a lap cat. He’d rather play with you than lay on you! He is a great jumper when playing with his feather wand toys and happily walks off with his “prey” after a successful pounce. He is a good eater and litter box user and scratches only on the appropriate posts. He will take treats directly from your hand. We will provide all medical records and his favorite toys.

History: He was found on a busy road in Chapel Hill when he was 5 months old. He has since been fully vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped by his foster parents. They hoped to assimilate him into their home, but the current cat in the home is very territorial and does not tolerate him or his energy level. She assumes his rough kitten play is an attack, so she growls, hisses, and ultimately hides from him and needs to be in a separate room. This is not fair for either cat. We'd love to help this fun boy find his forever home.

If interested in Simba, contact Susan at [email protected].

She wants to please humans and is a quick learner. She knows basic commands. She requires daily exercise. Luna gets really excited around new dogs and requires a slow introduction.

History: Luna was found in Greensboro in October 2019. All efforts were made to find her owner without success. She has since gotten a clean bill of health from the vet. She has received all her shots and been microchipped. The next step is to get her spayed. She has learned a lot since being found including basic commands. She will make a great per for an active human that enjoys the company of a loving dog.

Zoey

Listing Date: October 4, 2019

Birth Date: March 17, 2014

Weight: 17 pounds

Breed: Domestic Short Hair

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Vaccination Status: rabies shot up to date

Physical Description: Black and white

Personality Description: Zoey is 5+years old and is an only cat. She is indoor only. I adopted her 5 years ago, she was found on the street, without a mom. I am giving her up because of behavioral issues. She is still very loving, but she has a lot of small issues that I can no longer handle and are just causing me a lot of anxiety. I believe she would thrive in a home with an owner that is there more often. Some of her behavioral issues are: Pooping right outside her litter box. I started using multiple boxes and the problem has gotten a lot better, but i don't have enough space in my apartment for a permanent solution. (She never learned to cover her poop or pee, so that probably does not help). Hissing at everyone that comes over, even when they are not in her space, she hisses when people talk sometimes even. Very territorial. Very anxious, jumps up with the smallest noise. I have used the calming collar, feliway and solutions of that kind. I recently took her to the vet and got Gabapentin for situations where i know she will be stressed. She has not been around other animals, so I don't know how she would react to them.

History: She is microchipped

If interested in Zoey, contact Laura at [email protected].

Shelby

Listing Date: September 24, 2019

Birth Date: September 24, 2016

Weight: 38 pounds

Breed: Staffy mix

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Vaccination Status: UTD on vaccines/Hearworm negative

Physical Description: Hi! I'm Shelby. I have short, silky tan fur and eyes that match perfectly. I am quite petite (35lbs.) but I am muscular and energetic.

Personality Description: I am looking for my soul mate. I love to play fetch and I am super fast and athletic. I also play a mean game of tug! I will keep you giggling for hours with my antics. I am a little nervous in new places so if you had a back yard in which we could play, that would be great. I would do best in a home without other dogs. I like to play with other dogs but I need some time to get to know them first. It's the same with people. I need a little time to make sure they are cool and then I will love all over them! Indoors I am quiet and sweet and I settle down quickly. My favorite thing is to sleep snuggled up against my person. I am super affectionate and it doesn't take me long to make friends. I like to go into my crate when I need a rest and I never go to the bathroom in the house. I only chew the things that I am supposed to chew. I know lots of commands and will do what you ask me to do. I am smart enough to figure stuff out quickly and have trained my foster well. I will do ANYTHING for a treat. My perfect home would be a quiet environment with active people who would like to play with me some every day. Although I like to play outside I don't need tons of exercise to be happy. I can be left alone in my crate for several hours but I don't think I'd like to be in it for the entire day. I'm not really comfortable around small children or cats so a home without those would be best for me. I am definitely a "best friend" doggy and I am looking for that person or persons who will be a best friend back to me. Please contact my foster mom, Laurie LaBean, if you would like to meet me. I am hoping to find a home in the Mebane/Hillsborough area so she can pet sit me (she said it would be free!) when you go out of town and then I can play with my best friend Chester from time to time!! Her number is 919-641-9595.

History: Shelby was abandoned at a local boarding kennel.
