For every pet living with a happy family, there is an animal in a shelter waiting to find a forever home. So today, we want you to meet Kinsey, Allister and Grady, three rescued cats who’ve become the best of friends.
Workers from the Franklin County Humane Society of North Carolina rescued the trio from a kill shelter last-minute on Aug. 15. “Kinsey was all by herself, and the other two were brothers,” says Society cat team leader Allyce Johnson. “After being in a newspaper-lined shelter cage with nothing to see or do – and no affection – these kitties immediately blossomed upon coming to us.” The 6-month-olds now live together in a foster home – Allister and Grady are tuxedo cats while Kinsey sports gray and black markings – and are ready for forever families. “They purr the moment they’re picked up and love to play,” shares Johnson. They are FIV-negative, up-to-date with their vaccinations, have been spayed/neutered and are micro-chipped.
Founded in 2002, the FCHS is a non-profit, volunteer organization that strives to solve the problems associated with homeless dogs and cats in the county. FCHS uses foster homes to house its pets as they wait for forever families, and also provides comprehensive healthcare to its animals. The organization is also responsible for developing SNIF, or Spay & Neuter in Franklin County, a program designed to provide spay/neuter services to low-income families.
