Every day there are thousands of homeless pets in shelters in metro Atlanta who all have the same wish – a forever home. They are dreaming of waking up in a home where they are loved and cherished and are a member of the family.
In December 2014 Furkids, an animal rescue group in in metro Atlanta, rolled out a new adoption/fundraising campaign called “Operation: HOME.” Donors can sponsor a cat at the gold or silver level. Gold level sponsored cats have had their entire adoption fee paid and can be adopted for no fee. Silver level sponsored cats have had $50 of their adoption fee paid and can adopted at a reduced fee ($35 for cats over six months of age and $75 for kittens under six months of age). The sponsorship will stay with the cat until they are adopted – no time limit.
I will be featuring Furkids cats and kittens who are sponsored under the “Operation: HOME” program. These adorable furkids want nothing more than their very own human and a warm place to sleep at night.
Today’s featured cat is Achilles – a 10 month old male buff tabby kitty. Achilles has been sponsored at the “GOLD” level so his adoption fee is ZERO. Here is more about Achilles from the Furkids website:
Achilles was rescued from animal control along with his mom and four4 brothers when they were just a few weeks old. They were given a mythological gods naming theme. These five boys have been living large in their foster home. They are big, rowdy guys who romp, play and wrestle together.
Achilles, named for the Greek war hero, is a buff tabby boy, the lightest coloring of his orange brothers. His fur has a marbled pattern. Achilles is active and outgoing, happy to be a part of whatever is going on around him. He enjoys human attention and will give you lots of purr to show his contentment. He even likes belly rubs. Having his own forever home is his dream. Achilles would love to be adopted with a sibling, so consider making a pair of these cute kittens a part of your family today!
