CatBugs Pet Rescue, Inc.
We greatly appreciate any and all donations, cash or otherwise. If you would like to donate dog or cat food, litter, wire cages or pet taxis, or other supplies, please contact us so that we can make arrangements to pick it up or have you drop it off. We are currently feeding about 60 kitties and 20 dogs/puppies on a daily basis, including a feral cat colony that our volunteers have managed for over 6 years via TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return).
CatBugs volunteers and foster parents care for many pets with special needs - elderly pets with chronic disease, dogs with heartworm disease, animals with broken bones, and many others that were in danger of being euthanized before they were rescued by our agency.
The costs for ongoing quality medical care far exceed the amount we receive in adoption fees and we rely on donations to continue saving lives. If you'd like to donate to help us care for these animals, some in our adoption program, some in foster homes permanently due to their health issues, please donate below.

**ADOPTING A FRIEND**
Adopting a pet involves a serious commitment by the new pet guardian. Before an adoption is finalized, we ask applicants to complete a "Lifestyle Questionnaire" so that we can determine the needs of the adopter, and the needs of the animal being considered. Getting a good "match" is very important to us.
Preventing pet overpopulation and euthanasia of healthy animals is also very important to us. Because of this, we have a Mandatory Spay/Neuter Policy. All animals are sterilized before any adoption is finalized.
We require that kitties be adopted as indoor pets and that dogs also be housed indoors, unless outside for elimination or supervised exercise/play time with the family or other pets. A fenced yard is preferred for large breed dogs that need alot of exercise, and absolutely no chaining or tethering is allowed.
Our requested adoption donation for cats/kittens ranges from $40.00 to $100.00 which includes spay/neuter, testing for feline leukemia/FIV, age appropriate vaccinations against infectious diseases (FVRCP and Rabies if old enough) deworming, and flea preventative as needed.
Our requested adoption donation for dogs/puppies ranges from $75.00 to $200.00, which includes spay/neuter, microchip, heartworm testing and treatment if necessary, monthly heartworm preventative while in our care, age appropriate vaccinations against infectious diseases (Distemper/Parvo/Bordetella, and Rabies, if old enough), deworming and flea preventative as needed.

We do not have our own shelter at this time, but what we DO have, is a foster care network comprised of wonderful caring volunteers who take the animals into their privates homes where they are loved and nurtured and socialized with normal homefront activities occurring all around them. Keeping them in foster homes enables us to get to know the animals individually, and it also allows us to monitor their health more closely than if they were living in a shelter environment. It also enables us to detect any behavioral issues that might need to be addressed before the animal is placed with an adoptive family.
**WHO WE ARE**
We are a small group of volunteers dedicated to helping homeless animals in Bradford, Clay, Duval and Putnam Counties. Several of our volunteers have extensive hands on experience working with animals or in animal rescue; others have vet tech experience and some even work as dog trainers and pet sitters. One thing we all have in common is a genuine love for animals and a shared mission to help educate the public about the importance of spay/neuter and responsible pet ownership.
Primarily our focus is to rescue animals from death row at local animal control facilities, and to rehab them and provide for them medically and emotionally until they can be placed into suitable permanent homes, based on their individual needs and those of their adoptive family.
We operate solely from donations and the generosity of animal lovers who support our mission of helping homeless animals.
