Animals in Need of Homes or Foster Care/Animals Wanted Lost and Found

Senior cat needs home

BonBon, a 17-year-old, DSH, neutered tabby, must find home or foster by Tuesday, 25 April. Current caregiver has fostered the cat for three years here since his mother died, but has had to sell the home and is moving out of state. This is a short notice, but HSSNM turned out to be his last hope. He had tried all other shelters and even shelters in Albuquerque. He first contacted HSSNM on Wednesday, but was given the wrong telephone number to contact our cat adoption coordinator. We corrected that today, but it seems imperative to try to help this man who has been a faithful caregiver for the cat. BonBon will come with litter box and cat carrier. If you can help, call Joe Calderon, telephone: (804) 241-3177.

Cats need good homes

Micah available for adoption (Joshua recently adopted.)

Joshua"s and Micah's family has suffered some serious changes in just the past few months. Their lady owner passed away recently and her husband, their gentleman owner who is 85 years old, needs a lung transplant to stay alive and at his age this is a very difficult situation at best. He needs to move to Texas to be with his daughter and needs to find a new home for these two seven year old kitties. Micah is the dark cat and Joshua is the orangish one. They are large by cat standards, reportedly at about 15 pounds each, but full of love to match their size according to their daddy. They do get along with dogs, they are up to date on vaccinations, neutered and declawed. They have a current medical history with Calista Animal Clinic and have no known current medical issues. At their age these two senior cats qualify for HSSNM's "Senior to Senior" free adoption program. We need adopters or fosters until we can get them into our PetSmart adoption program. Please contact Frank at 575-523-8020 if you can help.
