The kitten that we featured in the blog the other day has found a home. Her foster parents, who are friends of C.A.R.E., told us that this cute kitten who they called Lu Lu, found her forever family. We're thrilled for Lu Lu, and we hope that she'll be happy with her people. Hooray for little Lu Lu! It's always a good day when a homeless animal gets adopted. Please consider adopting a pet in need. You'll never regret it. Contact C.A.R.E. for information about adopting or fostering at (215) 462-1889. You can also e-mail us at or We only place animals with kind, loving, and responsible pet owners.

Foster From a Friend

A friend of C.A.R.E. is currently fostering a kitten that is now available for adoption. This kitten is two months old and has a dynamic personality. She likes people, other cats, and even dogs. Please see the information below for more details. This information was written and given to us by the foster. If you wish to adopt this kitty, kindly call the the number on the bottom of this post.

My family fostered a kitten from the PSPCA who is now old enough to go to her permanent home! She is a brown tabby who was found by herself in North Philadelphia. She is litter trained and completely healthy.

She loves people and gets along with other cats as well as our 80 lb German Shepherd.
This adorable kitten is content to sleep in your arms and loves company. She would be a great companion for any living situation.

The kitten was fostered through the Philadelphia SPCA, and needs to be spayed there. The kitten comes with a litter box and food and water bowls.

You can save this kitten’s life and be her best friend forever!

If interested, please call Chelsea at 610-787-0636 or email for details.

Another Adoption Day for C.A.R.E. Cats

Summer has been pretty wonderful so far, especially for C.A.R.E. adoption days. We were at Queen Village Animal Hospital again last week. Once again, we were in the front of the office meeting nice people and trying to find forever homes for our wonderful kitties. Now that Panda has found his home, Simon and Theodore are looking forward to finding their special family too. As you can see, they love each other very much. That's why it's so important that they find a home together. We can't separate these guys. They're best friends. They snuggle (like they are in this picture) all of the time. So they truly want to be together for life.

Valerie joined us again, and many people who stopped by thought she was the sweetest thing in the world. She is indeed! All you have to do is look at her adorable face. Now tell us you're not in love!

If the weather is calm, you can look for us outside Queen Village. We're usually there on Saturdays, weather permitting. If it's too hot for you, it's probably too hot for the animals too. So we'll be there only if the weather allows. We'll try to post in advance when we'll do another adoption. Look out for the days, as we sometimes do adoptions during the week. Until then, visit our Petfinder site to see more C.A.R.E. cats who are looking for their special friend. We also have some animals that are not pictured on our websites. Please call the C.A.R.E. line for information on these pets. You can reach us at (215) 462-1889. Or drop us a line at one of our two email or

Adopt an Older Animal Today!

Miss Ethel just wanted to be loved. It was hard for her to find individual love and attention, though, because she lived in a house with almost 30 other cats.

One day some volunteers from C.A.R.E rescued her. Finally, she would find someone to love her! And she had a lot to offer because, being a lap cat, and a constant snuggle kitty, she would become the best friend to the lucky person who took her home.

Nobody told Ethel that a lot of people don't like to adopt older animals. And Ethel was about six years old when the C.A.R.E people came to her aid. Why wouldn't someone take her and love her? Was it really because she was no longer a kitten? What was wrong with her? She was cute and loving. What more could anyone want in a pal? She just wanted to be someone's friend. Yet no one seemed to want her. All they saw was her age. And nobody was interested in adopting a six year old cat who already had a name.

Ethel also had some other special needs. She lost most of her teeth, walked tipped to the side, and lost control of being able to retract her claws. Maybe Ethel just wasn't meant to find her forever home.

Then one day a lady came along; she had a cat, and wanted a friend for him. She wanted an older cat who nobody else wanted because she wanted to give that cat a chance. She knew that kittens had a better chance of finding homes. She understood that most people wouldn't take older cats with special needs. So she said she would take one. C.A.R.E. Introduced the lady to Ethel. And it was love at first sight (for the lady and Ethel alike). Ethel made herself at home when she visited with the lady by walking right up to the resident cat's toy box and choosing one of his toys for herself.

That visit was over six years ago. Since then, Ethel has become the queen of that household. She never lets her age or her needs get in the way of showing her people how much she loves them. She has become very comfortable in her house, and she lets everyone know that she's the boss.

  • Like Ethel, there are many older animals in shelters that just need a chance. Many adoptable dogs and cats are put down in shelters every day because people don't want to take an older animal. Just because an animal is no longer a kitten or a puppy doesn't mean that it doesn't deserve a home. Older animals will show you their true personality as soon as you meet them. A kitten's or puppy's personality can change as the animal grows. If you love animals, and you want to make a difference, consider adopting the ones who need a home most of all. Most people will choose the babies. They need homes too, and they usually find their forever families. Be the person who helps the ones left behind. It won't be a mistake. You'll be saving the life of your best friend.
