Adopt a Cat

Rescue Ridge is a ‘last-chance’ shelter. Staffed primarily through the efforts and donations of volunteers, we find homes for animals that other shelters and people have given up on. Through the kindness of various boarding kennels and foster families, rescued animals are cared for until they find that final family to love them.

Bunny lived with her five sisters in a lovely home until her elderly Mom passed away. A kind caretaker called us and asked if we could help these lovely girls. Bunny is around 10 yrs old, mostly black except for two small white spots on her chest and under her arms. She is a loving, sweet girl who is good with others. She is perfectly housetrained and with some extra attention to let her know that she is loved and will finally be "home" again, she will be a wonderful companion for some lucky person. This lovely cat will roll, snuggle and purr her way into your heart. A real sweetie.

Pebbles is a courtesy post - Please do not contact Rescue Ridge but instead contact Anthony at 732-779-7792, 732-505-4689 or a_tonzola@yahoo.com. Adorable petite 1 year old female silver marble tabby with green gold eyes. She has been spayed, has her shots, is healthy and very playful. She was rescued as a 4 month old kitten from a colony under the boardwalk. She is somewhat shy and hides with quick movements but loves sleeping on the bed with you at night and getting pet while she eats. It is recommended she be adopted into a home with at least another cat for company and no small children in the home. She is OK with friendly dogs. Her ideal “owner” is one that can continue to give her lots of love or an experienced cat person. She has made great strides since coming in from the street.

Sassie- Sassie's story is very sad. When her owners were evicted, they let this poor housecat onto the streets to fend for herself. While living on the street, she struggled to find food and was attacked by ferral cats. Sassie was in terrible shape. When she was rescued, this 3 year old Tabby cat weighed 5lbs, had a fever of 105+, was completely dehydrated, and had no white blood cells due to infections and fleas. Her prognosis looked grim. The vets did not think she would make it through the night but were determined to give her a fighting chance. Finally, after 2 weeks, to everyone's disbelief, Sassie was recovering! At her 1 month vet checkup, it was discovered that she was pregnant and X-rays showed there was only one kitten. Sassie is shy when she meets new people but once you gain her trust, you will have a friend for life. I would love to keep her, but my husband is extremely allergic to cats. She is healthy and up to date with shots. She has been spayed. If you are interested in this sweet girl please contact Rescue Ridge.

Nia is a 9-week-old gray tabby, who needs a loving, single-cat home. She arrived on our doorstep about two weeks ago with no mother or siblings in sight. After bringing Nia into our home, we quickly scheduled an appointment with our veterinarian. Unfortunately, we discovered that Nia was born with Leukemia through some routine blood tests. She is incredibly sweet and playful, but has some special needs due to her condition. She must be in a single-cat home and must be kept indoors at all times. Would you be willing to foster or adopt this special needs kitten?

"Millie is a beautiful white cat. She is about 2 1/2 years old. She is very friendly, loving, and active. Millie loves to be pet and seeks human attention. She tested positive on her FeLV, feline leukemia test, much to my, as well as the doctor's, dismay. She shows absolutely no symptoms. The vet said she is most likely just a carrier, which means she will not show symptoms, but she cannot be around other cats. She can spread the virus through urine and saliva. She is a perfect pet for a family that only wants one cat. She cannot pass the virus onto humans or any other animals.

Petri was found as a seat @ about 2 wks old. Today she's about 2 ½ - 3 mo old. Shes what u would call a Calico Marbled Tabby. She has long thick whiskers, fur on her ears, her lips make a perfect smile :), n a short but thick coat that's silky soft. Although she's considered short hair, she does have some length compared to other short haired kitties. Her features are striking! I tried to see wat cat breeds match n so far I've come up with... maybe she's part Norwegian Forest Cat??? The features fit besides the hair length. So I believe she's a Norwegian mix... She gets along well wit other cats, ferrets, & so far small dogs. Have yet to see her with a big dog... Extremely playful & spunky. This cat is hysterical & very entertaining! She is also a smuggler! Once she's played out she goes looking for a warm lap to climb on. Once she finds that lap, she is very thkful & shows it too! She will then continue to give u kisses & the purr machine begins! She even continues to purr in her sleep. She also loves to jump in bed n snuggle up during the cold nites. She's an absolute mush!!
