We are at the PetSmart on Sawmill Road the fourth Saturday of every month from 12-2 p.m. for adoption events. If you would like to meet some of our kitties, this is an excellent chance to see them in all their feline glory and decide if they are the cat for you!!!
Black and Orange Cat Foundation consists of a small group of volunteers working on trap-neuter-return (TNR) efforts for feral cats and spay/neuter services for stray cats in the Plain City area. Plain City is a rural farming community that is situated in two counties--Madison and Union counties. Because we are a farming area, there are a huge number of "barn cats" that need to be fixed. We are the only group in this area working on an ongoing basis to spay and neuter feral and stray cats.
Never heard of TNR? Trap-neuter-return involves humanely trapping feral or "wild" cats in traps baited with tuna or other yummy kitty foods. The cats, once trapped, are then transported to the vet to be spayed or neutered. We desperately want to cut down on the cat over population problem that is overwhelming so many shelters and TNR is helping us do just that.
But while the cats we trap are feral, there are often kittens or tame cats in these colonies that can be placed in homes. The kitties on these pages have all come from sad situations. With a lot of love, medical help, and plenty of good food, these guys have all become lovebugs looking for forever homes. Won't you please consider one of them so they will never be lonely or hungry again?
If you see a kitty on our pages that you are interested in adopting, please visit our web site to download an application: www.bandocats.org Once there, click on the Adopt page, scroll to the bottom, and you will find a downloadable application. You can either email that back to us at email@example.com or print it out, fill it out, and fax it to us at 614-873-0972.
Our adoption fees are $75. If you adopt two kittens from us, we usually only charge one adoption fee, because we love for siblings to stay together. Two kittens do so much better together than just one!! All of our cats and kittens are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. We also try to have all of their series of vaccines finished, but for some of the smaller kittens, booster shots may be required after adoption by the adopter. All of our cats and kittens are tested for feline leukemia/FIV and are negative (unless indicated otherwise--we do sometimes have special needs cats that have tested positive for feline leukemia/FIV listed on our site). We also make sure that they have been treated with Frontline for fleas/ticks and dewormed. We do everything possible to make sure the cats are as healthy as possible prior to adoption.
While we do not have an actual shelter, we do have three cage spaces at PetSmart on Sawmill Road in Columbus. Pumpkin is in the top adjoining cages. Please visit and discover what a nice kitty she is. While you are there, you can also fill out an adoption application right in the store. The store employees will then fax the application to us and we'll do everything possible to get the application reviewed as quickly as possible.
