SHANKS was saved by an independent rescuer back in late 2018. He was a tiny kitten. Well fast forward to 6 months ago, the lady was killed by a drunk driver. We were asked to help with her rescues and to our dismay, her house was a horrific hoarding case. We pulled 55 cats that were still alive. Our rescue took 26 of those cats into out rescue. SHANKS is the fourth one to be ready for adoption.
SHANKS can be shy at first. He gets comfortable very quick and is curious about everything. He can get startled, but will come back and investigate. He will then throw himself on the floor and demand attention. He is such a sweet love bug. All he wants is pets and love. Loves to play. He really loves to play with anything and makes you laugh with his silliness.
SHANKS comes running when it's time to get his can food. He will actually let you know to hurry up! He has the cutest face and his "white tint" all around his black coat is very unique.. His purr box is very loud. He's looking for his REAL FUREVER home.
SHANKS (named after the anime ONE PIECE) is a DOMESTIC SHORT HAIR / TUXEDO MIX. He is over 4 years old. He has lived with cats and gets along with them just fine. He has also lived with dogs. He has never been around children.
SHANKS is currently at our rescue in Hemet, California.
OCTOBER 2022: With all the needed social distancing, we are still doing adoptions. VOLUNTEERS are the only ones allowed to let you meet the kitty. Not PETSMART employees.
Volunteers are usually at Petsmart between 9 - 10 am to 12 pm - 1 pm. Please note that it is totally up to the volunteers if they are comfortable with allowing you in the cattery. (COVID). Steps 1-5 of the ADOPTION PROCESS need to be done before we do OFFICIAL MEET & GREETS.

The cats/kittens at a foster/rescue home, we will do meet and greets at any of the 3 Petsmart locations listed below.

The crazy rescue mama will drive kitties to their new home, once the adoption has been finalized. So gas donations always appreciated!
********** PLEASE NO CALLS. NO ONE IS AVAILABLE TO TAKE CALLS **********
If the CAT/KITTEN is still listed (meaning here or other websites) they are still available. It does not mean they don't have other pending applications or meet and greets.
Please note: Just because you fill out an application and are approved does not obligate you to adopt the cat/kitten. If he or she is not a fit...we have plenty of other cats / kittens available for adoption.
We are a SMALL rescue based out of Hemet, California. We are all volunteers that run the rescue. If we haven't reached out be patient.
SHANKS is ALREADY fully vetted.
The adoption fee of $200 covers:
FELV/FIV test (Negative/Negative)
Stronghold Flea Control
We are NOT a government FUNDED shelter and all our donations and adoption fees are for our rescued cats/kittens. So, we do not do DISCOUNTS.
If for some unfortunate reason you missed out on the kitten/cat you emailed about...I'm sure that we could help you with another rescue baby! Just ask!
