FIV+ Freedom Ride Month


July is FIV+ Freedom Ride Month for our Positively Perfect cats!!! What does that mean? If you adopt an FIV+ cat, we are sending you off with all the basic supplies including a carrier for them to travel home in style in!

Biscuit, Agatha, and Oreo all deserve loving homes!!!!

Read more about them on our Adoptable Cat page here: https://qcawc.org/adopt/cats - see Biscuit, Agatha, and Oreo's pages. As always, our FIV+ cat adoption fees are waived (no fee) to help them find furever homes!

What is FIV you might be wondering? It is Feline Immune Deficiency, a virus that only impacts cats (dogs and people can’t get it). It might sound a bit scary, but please don’t let it keep you from learning more about these lovely cats! Cats positive for FIV can live long, normal lifespans.

FIV+ cats typically remain symptom-free for years before showing signs of illness. FIV makes it difficult for the cat to protect themselves from other infections. For zero risk of transmission, FIV positive and negative cats should be kept separate, but it is only transmittable through serious fighting.

Want to meet them? Then please visit us! Allow at least an hour of time for the adoption process. All normal adoption procedures are in place.
