Meet Rusty

« »

Rusty came into ACAR when his caregiver determined that they didn’t have the time for their beloved, exceptionally sweet, gentle, young adult kitty.

Rusty has a single simple request: to be placed in to an indoor-only home for his safety and longevity. This wonderful, big, light orange fella is about 2 1/2 years old. He likes to entertain admirers by batting around his toy mouse and loves an open lap for petting and cuddling.

Rusty will do well with most children, all adults, non-aggressive house cats and well-behaved dogs. He is current on all necessary vaccinations, is neutered and has passed his wellness exam.

In addition to the featured pet of the week, there are also young kittens ready to go, a good number of young adult cats, and a limited number of older adults cats all looking for a home.

To find pets to adopt, check out adoptable pets at petfinder.com in the 03906 zip code.

Adoption hours are every Saturday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Monday, Wednesday and Friday noon to 5 p.m. at the adoption center/foster home of Marilyn Harley, 251 Route 4, Sanford.

To feed cats in their care, ACAR needs cat food. ACAR is spending a fortune on canned cat/kitten food, dry kitten/cat food and litter just to meet its day-to-day basic needs. Food donations may be dropped off at Another Chance Thrift Shop on 37 Market St., North Berwick, or 251 Country Club Road, Sanford .

The rescue thrift store is open Wednesday through Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to noon. All thrift store profits benefit the animals. Donations of items to the thrift store are welcome.

To assist the rescue’s mission of providing a safe environment and quality care for abandoned, abused and lost pets, you can become a Support for Life member by pledging $10 a month. The monthly donations help ACAR meet ongoing expenses and continue its work as a true “no kill” organization. Donations may be sent to: Another Chance Animal Rescue, P.O. Box 552, North Berwick, ME 03906.
