Meet Joey King

** HAS SPECIAL NEEDS. PLEASE SEE HEALTH SECTION BELOW **

NAME: Joey King

AGE/GENDER: 5/18/2020 Female

BREED/HAIR LENGTH: Domestic Short Hair

LITTER BOX TRAINING: Good

OTHER CATS: Joey would be happiest in a home without other cats.

DOGS: Joey is not a fan of big dogs or high energy dogs. She might be okay in a home with a small, low-energy dog.

CHILDREN: Cat respectful children, 8 and older.

LOCATION: In a foster home

ADOPTION DONATION: $150

HEALTH: Joey has a condition called mega-esophagus. Having an enlarged esophagus puts Joey at serious risk for regurgitating food after eating, and this can quickly lead to aspiration pneumonia. Joey needs an adopter who will be committed to ensuring she eats using a special food stand (see pictures) and then holding Joey in an upright position for 1 hour after eating each meal to ensure the food goes into her stomach and does not come back up her esophagus. She will require a wet food diet, and cannot have dry food.

She is spayed, microchipped, flea treated, dewormed, and is current on vaccines. Your adoption donation goes toward offsetting the cost of this vet care as well as other incidental and general care costs.

HISTORY: Joey came to us from another Washington shelter as a special needs case due to her mega-esophagus. Because the shelter was unable to provide Joey with the care she needed to eat safely, she came to us with a bad case of aspiration Pnuemonia and had to be hospitalized.

NOTES FROM FOSTER HOME: Joey is a sweet girl who would be happiest in a quiet, low-key home. She is not a fan of other animals, though has been accepting of small, calm dogs in her foster home. Joey has the sweetest little meows and will use them to invite you to feed her. She eats twice per day using a specialized feeding stand - which her lucky adopter will get! Joey needs to be held up for 1 hour after each meal, making her a great TV watching buddy!

About Motley Zoo:

Welcome to Motley Zoo Animal Rescue! We are a rock and roll themed, volunteer-run, foster based, 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue organization based in Redmond, WA.

Motley Zoo is a FOSTER BASED organization, which means our rescue animals are cared for in private foster homes (or partnering pet stores) where the animals receive one-on-one care and attention in a home environment until permanent placement is found. We do not have animals available for casual viewing and same day adoption. Due to the volunteer-run structure and decentralized/virtual nature of a foster based group, an approved application is required to make an adoption appointment for any of our animals.

If you are interested in one of our Adoptable Roadies, please email adopt@motleyzoo.org and request an adoption application. We will work toward getting you approved as an adopter so that we can set a time for you to meet your new best friend!

Motley Zoo also runs "Rock Star Treatment Dog Daycare" in Redmond, WA where proceeds from this service, help support our rescue's vet budget- however, this is NOT a shelter. For more information about daycare or training, check out www.rockstartreatment.org.

Please visit our website www.motleyzoo.org for more information!

Thanks for considering adoption- we look forward to helping you find your best match in a furry friend.

Rock on-
