We are a 501c3 tax exempt charity.

Please e-mail us at info@petadoptionnetwork.org if there is one of our kitties that you are interested in meeting but can’t get to our center on a Saturday or Sunday.  We will work very hard to make an appointment that will benefit both you and the foster home.

valentinesStory of Claus

Claus01Claus is looking forward to 2015 to take care of the issues he is experiencing. He needs to see 2 specialists regarding his issues. Unfortunately he is either missing or has a shrunken eye and will need to see a veterinary ophthalmologist.

UPDATE:  Claus visited the veterinary ophthalmologist last week for a consultation. Claus very patiently allowed his foster Mom to hold him while the doctor examined his eye and Claus received numbing drops to reduce his discomfort.  The examination was over quickly and the vet said that there was a non-functional small eye left inside. He couldn’t tell whether it was from trauma or an infection, but Claus is okay now and the best course of treatment is to remove the eye and seal the lid within the next few months to prevent any infection. The current plan is to wait for evaluation for his heart next month by ultrasound and if Claus is able to undergo anesthesia, remove the eye and perform his alteration through his regular veterinarian.

1-17-2015 update:

       Claus was able to get a cardiac ultrasound recently. Claus is thought to have a rare, congenital defect called pulmonary stenosis which means that blood flow in the vessel from his heart to his lungs has a smaller opening. This restriction causes his loud heart murmur but does not indicate that he has severe disease. Currently, his heart shows no disease changes and he has no symptoms of any heart disease! His imaging veterinarian recommends that he is monitored for symptoms, but is optimistic that he may not have issues related to this defect.
Claus was so good for his ultrasound that the vet promised him some kitty treats because he kept still! His personality keeps emerging and while he is still a very active and playful kitten and befriends adult cats to play, he wants to cuddle up and nap with a person or another cat. In the near future, he will have his alteration and sealing of his non-functional eye and will be looking for his furrever home!

Claus’ supporters are listed on our Kitten Page.

Megans Shelters

Shelter for feral cats

The photo above shows a simple how-to: The blue inner box is an 18-gallon Rubbermaid “Roughneck Tote” or similar. Cost about $8. Line the bottom with a few inches of straw (not hay). The purple outer box is a larger, 35-gallon tote, e.g., Rubbermaid “Latching Tote” or similar. Cost $6-15. Whatever brand of totes you buy, make sure that one easily fits inside the other with enough room for the installation. The pink is 1″ rigid polystyrene insulation, also available at Lowe’s or Home Depot. A large sheet costs about $10, and cuts easily with a utility knife. Having difficulty cutting a hole in the plastic?  Soften it first with hot air from a hairdryer.

Our Foster Homes Are Full
Because we are a no-kill organization, we must find homes for the cats we presently have before we can accept anymore cats.  Please check other rescue organizations, maybe they can help.  Some people are hesitant to take an animal to a shelter.  If no responsible home can be found that may be the best solution.  Do NOT be tempted to turn an animal loose outside.  Living a life on the street or abandoned in the country only results in short, miserable lives.  An existence plagued with injuries, disease, starvation and predators.If you have adopted from Pet Adoption Network in the past and have a question regarding  a previous adoption, please contact us at (585)338-9175zcatline
