Low Cost Cat Adoption at Tabby’s Place in New Jersey

0

RINGOES – It might be sweater season, but there’s a cozier way to warm up this fall.

How about cuddling with a fluffy kitty from Tabby’s Place, a cat sanctuary on Route 202 in Ringoes?

Since 2003, Tabby’s Place has been a world-class cage-free sanctuary for cats arriving from desperate circumstances.

Tabby’s Place has been a haven of hope for these animals, regardless of age, medical condition or temperament.

The Tabby’s Place team strives to treat every person and every cat with respect, compassion and generosity of spirit.

The goal is to get each of those 100 little furballs adopted, but Tabby’s Place also understands how many New Jerseyans can be in a financial rut due to various situations, and adoption can be too much for the wallet.

So by October 23, the sanctuary will be offering a reduced adoption fee of $50 (reduced from the usual $135) per cat, or $100 for a perfect pair.

“Tabby’s Place is a patchwork of calicoes, tabbies and whiskered wonders, with a perfect choice for everyone,” they said.

Some purring friends to adopt include giddy kittens like Earl, cuddly adults like Oscar, and more.

Benji came to Tabby’s Place via a Good Samaritan who found him when he was 11 months old. This tuxedo boy has clearly been around humans before. Benji loves scratching behind his ears.

Need a good dance partner? Disco is your cat. Well not really. She loves to curl up and nap, but she can be drawn to a brightly colored wand or ribbon. Disco came to the sanctuary from a busy Jersey City hideaway. She seems to be ready for a loving and comfortable home.

Clementine

Clementine is looking for her “forever” home. She arrived at Tabby’s Place after her family was no longer able to care for her. She is a loving and calm woman and in her old house Clementine lived with another cat. She would be a great addition to a multi-cat household or as a solo cat. She is quite flexible.

Oscar

Oscar hasn’t been at Tabby’s Place very long, but he has already won the hearts of so many volunteers. He has a gentle attitude and a curious attitude. Oscar was donated to a local veterinary hospital by his former owners. Although Oscar is kind, he has special needs that will require extra medical care for the rest of his life. Hope the right family is there to give him a good life.

Charly came to the sanctuary after an international rescue after the explosion in the port of Beirut, Lebanon, in 2020, with a cohort of felines. Charly was quickly adopted but unfortunately tragedy struck again and Charly’s person died. So Charly returned to Tabby’s Place, hoping for another forever home. It’s a real loving beast that loves attention and rubs against your legs.

S’mores

Combine layers of feline, sweetness, and personality, and you have this handsome tuxedo boy, named S’mores. He prefers to spend most of the day curled up in a comfortable place, enjoying a good old-fashioned nap. Every once in a while he gets an attack from the zoomies, and if you shake a bag of treats he’ll straighten up right away. S’mores is a bit older, but he’s healthy and has many years left to brighten up your life.

What does adoption include?

Each cat or kitten has received extensive medical care and has been sterilized. They have also been dewormed, treated for fleas and other parasites, tested for FIV and feline leukemia, vaccinated and microchipped (with lifetime registration). These services are valued at over $600.

Can’t adopt right now? You can virtually adopt a “special needs” cat by making a donation at http://www.tabbysplace.org/sn/. Donations can also be made at Tabby’s Place and mailed to the sanctuary at 1100 US Highway 202, Ringoes, NJ 08551.

At any given time, 30-40% of Tabby’s Place residents suffer from chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and paraplegia.

For those looking for a sweet little pumpkin to end their fall, Tabby’s Place is open by appointment, and potential adopters can view adoptable cats at https://www.tabbysplace.org/adopt/, and contact [email protected] .org to arrange a visit.
