Markiza, aka “Markie,” has been in my foster care for about 2 weeks and she is such a delight. She settled in nicely to my home. Her favorite spot is sleeping on my bed, but she likes to explore. She enjoys looking out the window and will come sit with me for petting and snuggling.

She will come out and sit at her spot when it is time to eat. She stares at me until I give her the wet food. Markie has a little wet food twice a day but mostly eats the grain free dry food.

I have 2 cats and a dog, and she occasionally wants to play with my female cat, although that is only one sided.

Markie is very playful for a 10 year old cat. She will run across the room in bursts of energy. She likes to play with the string and also my laser light.

She would make a wonderful companion for anyone.

If you’d be interested in learning more about Markie, or potentially meeting her in person, please contact our foster team at foster@anticruelty.org

IMG_1511Mumba wanted to make his own blog post this week, but he realized he only knows how to sit on the keyboard.  No typing skills whatsoever.  So he asked for help.

He says that he is pretty content in his foster home, but he would love to go out the door with his forever family


See….this door right here.

He is happy to pack himself up to travel, anytime


So keep the handsome boy in your thoughts……IMG_1561

If you know anyone who is interested in the friendly, playful, furry-eared Mumba, please contact the Anti-Cruelty Society.

It’s a beautiful summer Sunday, and I just wanted to let everyone know what Mr. Mumba has been up to.

This morning he slept in.  His favorite activity!


Shortly after rising, he decided, for no known reason, to spend some time in the shower.


He had a nice morning stretch


Then,  a few minutes playing “King of the mouse toys”,


Mumba then posed in some flattering light…..seriously handsome here


He hid where no one could find him (well……sort of).


And after so many activities, at 10:30 AM, it was time for a nap.


If you would like to to meet this active boy, please let us know, foster@anticruelty.org.

Happy Birthday Mumba!


Mumba is turning 2 today (at least according to his ACS records)  and he knows exactly what he wants.  He would like to find the gift of his forever home with his forever family.


Mumba is sweet, rambunctious boy who loves to sit on your lap, but adores a good play session with his fish toys.  It is very important that he squeezes in at least 5 naps a day among all the chasing and eating.  He’ll enjoy anyone’s company as long as he has a little time to get used to his surroundings.  He has been shy in the past, but seems to have mostly outgrown that at the mature age of 2!


Seriously, can’t you see Mumba in your life??!!??

Meet real-life Grumpy Cat/ full-time Elvis impersonator, Oreo. Can you believe that this hunka-hunka purring love is still looking for his forever home? He spent several months in The Anti-Cruelty Society’s Charlotte’s Corner prior to going into foster care. He spends much of his days napping and sun bathing in the light that pours through his foster home’s windows. He is a bit on the independent side, but will occasionally come lay next to you when he wants to be shown some love. If you can provide him with a nice home and a little space, you should get along famously.

Meet Spices! His foster mom, Deborah had some very nice things to say about Spices’ stay.

“Overall, I think he is doing pretty well.  He is in my second bedroom and whenever I go into the room he may hide for a second but then comes right out and walks around the room.  He typically walks right near me but then may run back a little bit.  If I put the back of my hand out he head or side butts my hand and lets me pet his back 4 or 5 times and then he steps away again or he swats very delicately at me (without claws).  Yesterday, I had my adult niece come in the room with me and he walked around the room the whole time and let me pet him and he even sniffed her hand.

I sleep in the room with him at night and he typically sleeps on the floor about 3 or 4 feet away from me.  This morning he flopped on his side right beneath the couch I slept on and kind of rolled over a bit and exposed his stomach to me.

In terms of eating, he really didn’t eat anything Monday night or during the day Tuesday but then I brought him some turkey and he sat right next to me and ate the turkey from the dish.  He had some turkey yesterday too.  If I put it in my hand, he comes and sniffs it but doesn’t eat it out of my hand.  This morning he finally ate some cat food (dry Science diet)!  He is also drinking a lot of water and using the litter box.

Spices has started to play a little too.

He still can be skittish and a little unpredictable but I think he is just learning how to be a cat!”

20141202_073046Queen is one special dog who has stolen the hearts of staff and volunteers alike here at The Anti-Cruelty Society!

A member of our Foster to Forever program, she is currently available for adoption while enjoying life out on the town with her foster family.

Queen is a special needs dog as she has grade 3/4 luxating patella on both hind legs – which is something her adopter should keep in mind before making her a part of their family. Learn more about Queen on her official adoption profile here.

We recently received a wonderful update on Queen’s progress in her foster home – here’s what her current caretaker had to share:

“I began fostering Queen November 17 and what a delight she has been.

She was nervous at first but Rooster, my other dog, helped calm her down.  She has been great with Rooster and my cats (they show a passing interest in her but not much).

With encouragement and tasty snacks, Queen has settled well into routine, including walking with myself and my dog walker. Despite her initial hesitancy, she now goes up and down the stairs quite well. Her luxating patella does not slow her down.  She is housebroken, so the first thing she does when she gets outside is go to the bathroom. Then she has time to sniff around. We go farther each time we walk.  She follows Rooster’s lead, and even likes to run a little bit. She lets me know she wants to run because she stretches her legs and then begins to walk similar to a trotting horse. Then she will do a short burst run and then stop.  Rooster and I join her.She wags her tail when other people walk by. She is interested in other dogs she sees and remains calm, even if they bark at her.

Rooster and QueenShe also likes hanging out with the animals and people inside the house. She enjoys watching the activity, being petted, or chewing on her bone. She also plays tug of war with one of many stuffed animals I have.

I know that she will be a wonderful addition to whomever adopts her. She has a sweet personality, is playful, and gets along well with other people and animals. She shows zero aggression. I hope she finds her forever home soon.” – Rosemary (foster mom)
