~ Just look at this face!  We've not yet found that forever home that would be just right for Sally, but we won't give up!!  Rescued over a year ago with an injured hip & leg, Sally has been waiting patiently for her very own forever home.  Having only 3 legs does not slow her down at all.  She is young, healthy, & fully vetted.  Sally will need time to warm up to a new environment/person & we feel she'd do best in a quiet/low activity home (no dogs or young children) & should warm up to a friendly feline with the proper introductions.

Located in the Charlotte, NC area, please share with anyone you think might be able to give Sally the home she would feel most comfortable in. ~ For further information or an application please email ~ Thanks!

I wish I knew someone in your area to recommend her to.  She seems like an awesome cat!  Reminds me so much of my cat Jet, who is also a tuxedo rear-leg amputee.  Best of luck finding a good home for her!!

How sweet she looks! She is marked the opposite of my Oscar. I hope she finds a home soon, Huckleberry is the last one for us to take in and I have my hands full with all of them. Good luck!

~ Look at this sweet girl heart Sally is still waiting patiently for that special forever home to find her. She has come such a long way & as you can see from this sweet video (Sally Playing) having only 3 legs does not slow her down!! Sally may be very shy at first in a new home & with new people, but they will be so rewarded in time & with patience. Just look at how she is in her foster home today! Fully vetted & located in the Charlotte, NC area we'd love to find Sally a local home that is low-activity & quiet. ~ For further information or an application please email ~ Or feel free to share with anyone you think might have the perfect home for Sally. Thanks!

I will share with my sister in law who lives in that general area.  they are very big in the rescue animal community.  no promises but maybe they know someone.

Rusty "The Bunnyman" adopted us in 2014.  Aug/Sept 2017, back left leg amputated (HSA cancer).  He remained cancer free over 900 days. Cancer returned as of emergency visit on day 931. 15 days later, he gained his wings 04/18/2020 due to congestive heart failure.  He will always watch over his fellow tripawds and their hoomins with Head Scritches and Sand Paper Kisses.
