This week we are going to highlight some of our longest stay cat residents in hopes that they will find their forever homes!

Benita came to SVASC as part of a hoarding case in late July 2020. She is one of the last of her group to find a home. Here is what Benita has to say about herself:

"Hello! Are you looking for a totally gorgeous, sleek black kitty to join your family and provide you with love furever?

My name is Benita and I'm a 2 year old kitty that came to SVASC with a bunch of my friends. Boo! Anyways, now I'm looking for some new digs to call my own... and I've got a hunch that that may just be your place. I'm a little on the shy side, especially when you first meet me, so I really will need some time to warm up to the idea of expanding my friend group, but I could be open to it for the right folks... Anyways, I'm a pretty awesome gal once you get to know me!

I was previously a strictly outdoor kitty, so I probably wouldn't mind an indoor/outdoor home to call my own. I'm sure that I would adjust just fine to being an indoor kitty though. Please chat with SVASC staff about what living situation would suit us the best; they'll be happy to offer tips on acclimation. I previously lived with other kitties and would probably be my happiest self with a pal to keep me company."

If you are interested in Benita, submit your application here: https://www.shelterluv.com/matchme/adopt/SVAS/Cat.

SVASC is operating by appointment only, and requires and approved application before coming to the shelter. Questions can be directed to staff.svasc@gmail.com.

This week we are going to highlight some of our longest stay cat residents in hopes that they will find their forever homes!

Double Dutch came to SVASC from a hoarding situation with about 30 other cats! She is one of the last three still looking for a forever home. Currently Double Dutch is residing in a foster home. Here is what she has to say about herself:

"Are you looking for a totally adorable, petite kitty to join your family? Well, your search ends today because I'm ready to start enjoying the finer things in life.

My name is Double Dutch and I'm a 1-2 year old kitty. All of the kitties from my home were in rough shape, but I am one of the kitties that felt the worst; I am itty bitty at about 5lbs currently, but am still putting on weight. I am a little shy because I wasn't handled too much in my previous home, so I may take some time to come around to new folks; take things slow and I'll warm up!

Since I can be a tad bit shy, I may need some extra time to adjust to my new home; ask SVASC for tips on helping me acclimate to my new home. I previously lived with several other cats and seem happiest when I have a buddy; I would do best in a home with another confident kitty that would be able to help me come around some, though it's not a requirement. I did previously live with dogs and kids, so I may be okay trying that out again, as long as they are calmer.?

We have guinea pigs again! If you missed out on our last piggies, now's your chance to scoop up another wonderful pair! We have 2 females (mother and daughter) and 2 males (brothers) that are ready for their furever homes!

If you are interested in adopting a pair of these guys, please go ahead and fill out an application here: https://www.shelterluv.com/matchme/adopt/SVAS/Rabbit

Please be sure that you are knowledgeable of Guinea Pig care requirements before applying. They have a life expectancy of 4-8 years and will require regular vet care and handling during that time. Guinea pigs are social animals and so we will not be splitting these two up.

For more information on these guys, please call us at (540) 943-5142 or email Erin at ewiles.svasc@gmail.com.

**The adoption application linked is for rabbits; please go ahead and fill that out anyways.

This week we are going to highlight some of our longest stay cat residents in hopes that they will find their forever homes!

Scattergories came to SVASC from a hoarding situation with about 30 other cats! She is one of the last three still looking for a forever home. Currently Scattergories is residing in a foster home. Here is what she has to say about herself:

"Oh hello! Are you looking for a friend to keep you company while you're stuck at home? Or maybe a pal for movie nights? I must say, I'm great at Uno...

Anyways! My name is Scattergories and I'm a 3 year old sweetheart! When I arrived, I was so sick that the staff weren't sure if I'd even make it, but thanks to the dedicated staff and vet teams that stood behind me, I'm feeling better than ever. I'm a very sweet girl, but may take a second to warm up. Once I do warm up, though, I'm all about snuggles and play time!

I am pretty used to having other cats in the house and am actually rooming with a buddy right now, so I think that I would do well in a home with other kitties. I may actually do better in a home with friends than I would in a home without other cats. I did also live with kids and feel like I could easily do that again, if the kids were respectful of me and my space."
