Rosie is sweet, smart, friendly, playful, and affectionate. She loves being near her people and gets along great with other cats and other dogs. She uses the litterbox perfectly and is a real pleasure to be with. This poor girl was found as a skinny stray in a parking lot where it was only a matter of time before she was hit by a car. Her foster mom, a DARS volunteer, rescued her and Rosie has been living with her family of 4 dogs, 2 cats, and 3 children ever since. Rosie is less than a year old and is a bit on the small side. She is a wonderful little houseguest with perfect manners. This little girl will make some lucky family a great pet. Not only is she sweet, but she is also beautiful. Her picture does not do her justice. She has the most beautiful big golden eyes which bring out the gold in her black and gold tortoiseshell coat. She loves to be petted and does a great job at keeping human laps nice and warm. To inquire about making this sweetheart a permanent member of your family, please email us at and ask us to put you in touch with Rosie's foster mom for more information or to arrange a meeting.

PET IDENTIFICATION is important to ensure the safe return of your pet if he/she gets lost. Even if your pet normally stays inside, accidents can happen! Many people put collars on their pets, but fail to put a rabies tag or ID on it. Without any ID, shelters are unable to locate owners and many pets are euthanized annually just because an owner does not come looking for his/her pet and the ACO has no way of finding the owner. Additionally,local ordinances in ALL communities require that every pet wear his/her rabies tag at all times. If you cannot keep a collar on your pet, try getting a microchip. Shelters have scanners to check for this implanted computer chip and, thus, locate an owner. Also, keep contact information up-to-date with your Veterinarian and with the microchip manufacturer.
