GaDaH has received our second batch of saved kitties from Kabul, Afghanistan working with a veterinarian and rescue in KABUL, Afghanistan to help save some of their abundance of stray and abused animals.
BEAR was flown into Washington DC, with 12 other kitties on 16th March and driven another 17 hours up to the rescue in Sebec, Maine.
BEAR is neutered, rabies, feline panleukopenia, herpesviral and caliciviral infection, dewormed, monthly preventatives, microchipped, weighs around 7.5 pounds and has an estimated date of birth of 5 May 2020.
Bear is living in the house in a fenced off area with several other kitties and is doing great. He will allow me to pet him and he does purr and snuggle, however it is important the family is understanding to allowing time to decompress and give him space in a safe, secure environment is critical.
Considering the ordeal that these kitties have endured they have adapted into great companions. Whilst here at the rescue they have been kept indoors, however, I do believe that they had been mostly outdoor in Afghanistan, as they do act like they want to go outside, however, individual families will have to make that decision on their home and living environment and if need be, build or purchase a cat condo to give the cats the best of both worlds.
Bear is available for an adoption fee of $200 each, or $150 each if adopting more than one kittie. We realize that this is considerably more than cats that can be bought online or with local rescues, however, it is important to remember where the boys have come from and understand that $200 doesn't come close to covering even a slight portion of costs incurred.
This fee is not negotiable. Canadian adopters need to know that customs charge 15% taxes when entering into Canada.
Due to borders being closed, it is up to families to call the US and Canadian borders to find the current details on border crossing. Animal Welfare is deemed essential in the US, but quarantine rules entering back into Canada must be followed. We have had families being allowed to travel since Animal Welfare is deemed essential in the US, however, of course following quarantine rules must be followed when returning to Canada.
