Mama

image1

Cat Domestic Short Hair Senior Female Small 

Meet Mama! Our longest resident! Mama is a former stray/semi feral cat that we have known for roughly 8 years!! She was a former colony cat at one of our feeding stations in Dorchester where we fed daily. Mama is called Mama because when we first came across her she had a tiny black kitten that followed her everywhere she went. Her kitten was taken in by the Animal Rescue League of Boston back in 2012 and found a home then. In April of 2017 we realized Mama was drastically losing weight, despite having a ravenous appetite. We took her in and sure enough she is diabetic. Since then her diabetes has been regulated and she is on insulin injections twice daily. She has adjusted to life indoors well but doesn't enjoy the company of dogs and most cats. She is spayed, microchipped, vaccinated felv/fiv negative and estimated to be roughly 8-9 years old, a young senior. Mama has been in our rescue for over 2 YEARS and has made tremendous strides. She allows a lot of handling which is required to give her insulin injections twice daily. She would still prefer to be an only pet but has shared her space successfully in the past with a calm foster cat. If you are interested in adopting Mama please fill out an application.

Forrest

Dog Pit Bull Terrier Adult Male Medium

Meet Forrest! Forrest is estimated to be roughly 1-2 years old and is approximately 50 lbs. He is suspected of having a congenital disease, Cerebellar hypoplasia. He would be best described as special needs. He has extremely large front paws and is known to crash into things, run not walk and fall. Oh Forrest. This sweet boy has stolen our hearts. Forrest came to us in early February after being bounced around the shelter system in Rhode Island. He had originally been found as a stray in Providence November of 2018. Forrest is VERY dog friendly. He attends day care routinely and has gained fuller functioning of his motor skills since entering the rescue several months ago. Forrest would do best in a home with another dog, preferably a dog that would be up for the challenge of being his friend. Sadly he is not suitable to live with children or cats. Forrest is neutered, up to date on vaccines, house trained and crate trained. If you are interested in meeting and potentially adopting Forrest please fill out an application.
