Adoptable Pet of the Week: Ophelia

Share This!


Ophelia’s foster parent says, “Ophelia has been in a home interacting with nine kids ranging in age from 2 years to 9 years, so she’s had lots of exposure and love from children. She also has been around full-grown cats, which she has taken some time to adjust to, and a 55-pound dog, whom she loves to play with. She is very active and longs for an adventure. As much as she enjoys being around the children, she also enjoys being left to her own playfulness and is good at communicating what she needs with her body language. She has been well loved, well cuddled and would be a great kitty.”

Adoption fees for cats are $95 and $50 for the second cat when adopting two together. This includes a basic medical exam, spay or neuter surgery, microchip implantation, rabies and other vaccinations, intestinal parasite check, a heartworm test and deworming.

Thanks to our sponsors, new owners of each adopted featured pet will receive a complimentary first wellness visit from Park Veterinary Hospital & Urgent Care and a free full day of camp at Camp Bow Wow.
