Furry Nation Salvation has TWO main locations for adoptions. We always post the location of the animal with any social media posts or ads you may see.
If you are a single adopter please put your name in both sections.
Please know- WE DO VERIFY THIS INFORMATION. Many times a tenant will SNEAK their pets into their apartment and when caught- many pets end up at the shelter as they don't want to pay the high pet fee.
Example: 3 pets: Lab-7 years old, Tabby cat 4 years, Guinea Pig 2
1) Dog- Randy- 5 years old (current pet)
1) Cat-Rudy-died at 7 due to kidney issue
2) Dog-Bobbie-Died at 2 (car accident)
3) Hampster- FreddyBear- (Current pet)
Declawing is a major surgery which involves not only the removal of the claw, but the removal of the last finger bone (known as the distal phalanx) of a cat's toe. Declawing as been linked to aggression, peeing outside the litter box, and over-grooming behavior. Not to mention life long pain (arthritis, back pain) as a cat is forced to walk differently once their toes have been amputated.
Dry food left out is fine, but PLEASE don't forget to give your cat AT LEAST half of a 5.5 oz. can of wet food (add a few tablespoons of water too if you can) EVERY DAY as this is the best chance for your cat to live 15-20 years without major health issues. Better yet, give your cat wet food twice a day with the added water. Cat's are known for their LOW thirst drive and need much for liquids in their diets. They will not drink the amount of water they need on their own (not even with those fancy cat fountains). Wet food is much higher in moisture/water content than dry food is and the reason it is so important (wet food is 80% moisture while dry food is only 10%) . Giving your cat a half of a 5.5 oz. can once every single day comes to $7.50 a month (pennies a day!). A lack of sufficient water causes dehydration, which is the #1 cause of death in cats 5 years of age and older. Dehydration can lead to painful and sometimes fatal urinary tract and kidney diseases, obesity, heart problems and diabetes. Simply put: "CAT'S NEED WET FOOD NOW - FOR FEWER PROBLEMS LATER."
Good oral hygiene can help prevent diseases or secondary infections, such as liver, heart, kidney, and joint disease from bacteria originating in the mouth and spreading through the body by the bloodstream. There are brushing and NO-brushing techniques to help your furry family members. Enzymatic pet toothpaste (beef or poultry) & toothbrush is the best way, but there are oral care gels, dental wipes, and even a liquids you add directly to your pet's water bowl. Dental disease is very painful and pets suffer silently - Please help them fight this disease! My dog and cat fight over the toothpaste (yes they see this time as a special treat), so don't think this task is impossible.
