Leo found a great new home and has been adopted. 2017 is turning into an amazing year for rescue animals as they’re being saved by North Shore Animal League, and then finding great news homes. Keep checking back for the latest rescue pets looking for a great home.
We are so excited to introduce yet another cutie this week, as we continue our teaming up with North Shore Animal League America. As most of our loyal readers know, we here at Movie TV Tech Geeks have been teaming up with North Shore Animal League America to feature adoptable pets – cats and dogs – every week for well over a year now.
North Shore Animal League America is the world’s largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization. For over 70 years, North Shore has been rescuing animals and advocating their proper care. Since opening in 1944, the organization has saved the lives of over 1,000,000 cats, dogs, kittens and puppies.
The shelter is located in Port Washington, New York, where it facilitates animal rescue and adoptions, as well as plays a lead role in the no-kill movement. North Shore Animal League America continues to innovate better and more sustainable ways to care for pets, in order to create a brighter future for animals everywhere.
Even if you don’t live in the area, you can still contact North Shore Animal League, and they can guide you to the closest no-kill rescue shelter in your area for a similar dog or even arrange travel arrangements. If you have a friend you think would be interested, pass these articles on as we hope to continue to find loving, suitable homes for even more pets.
With their vision, “To put an end to animal cruelty and euthanasia and to create a world in which all companion animals find compassionate, permanent homes.” North Shore Animal League America continues to make a positive difference in the lives of countless animals.
Now…give a warm welcome to Leo!
Rescued from the New York Tri-State area, Leo is a three and a half-year-old gray, domestic tabby cat. He has a soft, short fur coat with white patches on his face, chest and paws. Not only does Leo have a soft exterior, he also has a warm, loving heart. He is a very quiet and laid-back feline, who is ready to forge a life-long bond with his forever family.
After being rescued by North Shore’s staff, it was determined that Leo has epilepsy. Fortunately, this condition is completely manageable, as Leo simply needs to take a daily medication to keep him in tip-top shape.
It has been said that pet owners smile more, laugh more and form special friendships with other animal owners and lovers. Leo will surely bring these improvements to his new owners’ lives and help them lead a more joyful life.
Cats are extremely versatile and adaptable animals, making them the perfect pet option for almost every household. As mainly independent animals, cats are often low maintenance and are perfect for those who live an active and busy lifestyle who may not be able to take on the responsibility that is associated with owning a dog.
Jennifer Workman, the Feline Behaviorist at North Shore Animal League America notes, “He is handsome, bright, alert and friendly. Leo is hoping for a home with a family who accepts him for the loving feline he is and is willing to help him adjust with patience in his new home.”
While he may be a very calm cat, Leo also has a playful side. He loves to spend time with his favorite two-legged friends, playing with toys and getting as many belly rubs as he can. His infectious spirit and warmth truly make him the perfect addition to any suitable family and home.
If you have experience with a cat with special medical needs, or if you would simply love to provide and loving and relaxed home for this wonderful young cat, please e-mail DoritS@animalleague.org.
