Featured Pet for Adoption: JASPER

Meet Jasper! This big handsome boy was found living outside on a bad street in Philadelphia. He was in absolutely terrible shape; skin and bones, terribly dirty, worst ears I have ever seen and had a completely infected mouth. Yet, even then, he was so sweet and grateful for kindness.

Over the past few months he had dental surgery and had almost all his teeth extracted. He is now back to eating and grooming himself. His ears are cleaned up and they don't seem to bother him at all anymore! He is estimated to be about 7-8 years old and is fully vetted but he is FIV+.

Jasper's personality is amazing. He is a total lap cat and all he really wants is affection. He gets along fine with other cats but would also be fine without feline companions. He has so much love to give and really deserves a home of his own where he can get all the love he craves.

Please consider opening your home to this very, very handsome boy!
