"Splinter" came to us on May 8, 2018 from Glassville where he'd been part of a colony of feral cats that was trying survive. Splinter was born about August 7, 2010, so was about eight years old. In his life he had sustained several wounds and injuries. Today he displayed a very badly infected ear. It was extremely infected and he needed help.
Splinter's ear was cleaned and he was placed on antibiotics to ensure the infection would not spread further. He wasn't sure what to think of us at first, but this old guy is happy to be warm, safe and have food delivered upon demand. He is doing well, although he's still a little timid and quiet - he's not absolutely certain we're okay, but he's well on his way to realizing that! We'll take good care of him. He hopes to have a safe, warm and loving home soon. He's tired of those long, cold, hungry winters and has paid his dues. Splinter tested positive for FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus). Please read about it below.
I'm interested. How do I meet Splinter?
Submit a Pre-Adoption Application. You can get one by clicking the link below or drop in at DunRoamin' to fill out one in person. Please check out our Adoption Contract also to see what we ask of our adopters. (We'll ask you to fill that out once you have been approved and have chosen that perfect new family member.) You can get it to us in one of the following three ways:
a. e-mail the Pre-Adoption application to email@example.com;
b. mail the application to DunRoamin' Stray and Rescue, P.O. Box 574, Florenceville-Bristol, NB, E7L 1Y8; or
c. drop the completed form at DunRoamin' Stray and Rescue, 55 Allison Road, Riverbank, NB. We're in the basement of the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic - just park on the left side of the building and go in the white basement door on the left. We're open from 9 am - 5 pm Monday to Saturday.
Our adoption fee is $135 for cats and $145 for kittens. This includes their spay or neuter, vaccinations for the first year they are with us, testing for Feline Leukemia, Testing for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus and parasite control.
*** FIV is contagious to other cats through blood and saliva. It is reasonably difficult to spread, however, and now believed to be mostly spread through deep bite wounds. Obviously, it would be ideal if FIV-positive cats only lived with other FIV-positive cats, but currently some of the large rescue centers in the US have been studying multi-cat households with FIV-positive cats living with FIV-negative cats and have found the risk to the non-FIV cats to be very small, assuming that the cats are all spayed/neutered and used to living in groups (ie: not as likely to fight). Zdeno is currently living in a foster home with six other FIV- cats and there are absolutely no issues! He's great with them!
