Tail Waggin'  mobile adoptions coming to a location near you!

Do you or someone you know live or work at a ranch, vineyard, farm, warehouse or barn / workshop?

Country cats represent a portion of the feline population that thrive on free-range living rather than bunking down for the night in a typical home.  Like any other domesticated animal, they still need warm shelter, food and water.

Our country cats program ensures that these free-spirited felines receive a safe, warm living environment. Their health exams, vaccinations, microchips and spay/neuters are all done. In return, you’ll have a forever pal (or two) who’ll play sensible sentry with you 24/7.

Interested?  Call Don at 707.577.1917 or email him at dmalone@sonomahumane.org.  

Have a Warm Lap to Spare?

When it comes right down to it, isn’t love really the only power that can rock someone’s life?  Of course, living in earthquake country can do the same thing.  But we’re talking about what it means to share your life with a four-legged friend in their golden years.  No matter how you describe it—companionship cultivates happiness.  If your low-key lifestyle has room to embrace the company of an older cat or dog—or if you’re entering your golden years too—then our fospice program might be just the right fit.

What is it like to be a Fospice caregiver?

First of all I think of Fospice care as a natural evolution of the concept of fostering animals who are starting life’s journey.Fospice animals are nearing the end of that journey and deserve the same compassion and love as tiny foster animals. Read more>>>

Kingston - 10 year-old

Kingston: 10 year-old

IN NEED OF FOSPICE:

Kingston is a very handsome purebred German Shepherd. He is looking for an experienced home to live out his golden years. He would do best in a cat free home with kids 16 and older. He would be happy to be the only dog, but may be able to co-habitate with an easy going, large, senior, female dog. Any dog that may share his space should be introduced appropriately; slow, gradual, introductions; several over a period of time is advised. Kingston showed some sensitivity to being handled by men; this took place while he was in a bit of discomfort due to untreated arthritis. He is currently on pain medication and is doing better with handling. Since Kingston is a Fospice candidate, his medication is provided at no cost to you by Sonoma Humane Society. This distinguished gentleman can't wait to come home with you!

Edna

Edna: 14 year-old

IN NEED OF FOSPICE:

Edna is a really great cat that is part of our fospice cat program for elderly cats. Edna does not have a terminal illness, but is just an older cat that requires a twice daily medication. We are offering complimentary veterinary care for Edna for the rest of her life as an incentive to bringing her into your home. If you are interested in Edna, a staff veterinarian will be happy to discuss her and our fospice program with you further.

Juniper: 12 year-old

Juniper: 12 year-old

 

IN NEED OF FOSPICE:

This little tuxedo has teeny tiny little paws but a not-so-tiny attitude...she's quite opinionated and would greatly prefer a household where she's the only kitty.  Her markings are unique: she almost looks like she only put her make-up on half of her face.  But we think that just makes her all the more charming!  Loves to have her face scratched and being petted is the best thing!

Patrick: 8.5 year-old

Patrick: 8.5 year-old

IN NEED OF FOSPICE:

Patrick does not have a terminal illness, but does have multiple health issues which will require care and regular veterinary check-ups.
Patrick came to us with severe dental disease which resulted in him having to have numerous extractions. Those were performed in mid-September and Patrick is now doing very well.
Patrick also has had some skin allergies and is currently on a hypoallergenic diet.
Sweet Patrick also has a heart murmur, which a staff veterinarian will be happy to discuss with you further if you are interested in adopting this sweet boy.
At one point in his life, Patrick was a barn cat but he's turned over a new leaf and is a wonderfully gentle and affectionate kitty who's super loving and eager to please. His color's described as black but we're not sure that every part of him got the word! He's got more than his share of gray. But we do know that he's 100% ready for someone to give him a safe, secure and loving home!

Pumpkin: 10 year-old

Pumpkin: 10 year-old

IN NEED OF FOSPICE:

This SWEET, SWEET older kitty quickly became one of the cat cuddler's favorites after she was given a second chance by our shelter vet, after having all her teeth pulled and struggling with some digestive issues.  She's on the mend now and ready to share many years with someone who appreciates what a loving home can do for a wonderful cat.  She's variously described as sweet, loving, gentle, affectionate, and very eager for any affection you want to share with her.

Abby: 12 year-old

Abby: 12 year-old

IN NEED OF FOSPICE:

This "mature" girl is the sweetest, most loving kitty you could think of.  She's quick to greet you and wants nothing more than to climb onto your lap for some quiet loving attention.  She's eager for love and has a plaintive little meow to let you know that she wants some of your time and attention.  She's had lots of experiences in her life but now is looking for some quiet time with that special someone...someone who is willing to give her the best for the rest. As a Fospice kitty, we'll cover her medical bills if you'll give the great life she deserves.

Abby is a cat who is in our Fospice Program. She has some arthritis which slows her down but is getting fish oil to nourish her joints.
