Augustine is a 9 year old solid black female and one of the rarest seen kitties at the shelter. But it wasn’t always that way for this girl. When she first arrived at ARC back when she was just a kitten, she was shy but we spent many hours with her and were able to pet her just fine and even pick her up and carry her around.
When it came time for Augustine to join the general population she didn’t adjust well and after just a few days, she had made her way into the Wolves Den (a room in our basement with a pet door leading to the outside, where Rascal and many others have lived throughout the years) and was well on her way to going feral.
Not wanting this sweet girl to miss out on a chance for a home, we scooped her up and took her into the downstairs laundry room, so we could work with her some more. I believe she even spent a few more days back in the Romper Room before again being let and making her way to the Wolves Den where she lives to this day.
She is best friends with Rascal and will be at ARC her entire life. For kitties like Augustine this is the only home they will ever have and we do our best to make it a good one for them.
The success of the Animal Refuge Center’s Sponsor A Pet Program has stood the test of time, and is more important to our work now than ever before. Maybe you don’t have room to adopt another pet at this time. Some of these pets may never, ever find their Forever Home, and the Animal Refuge Center will be the only home they ever have. A lot of these pets have waited awhile, and pets who were previously thought unadoptable have found their home with a stroke of luck. With your Sponsorship, you can help keep a homeless pet safe, warm, fed and loved until they do.
Sponsor This Pet!
