Exceptional Cat Foster Oppurrtunity = Romeo
Exceptional Cat Foster Oppurrtunity!

Exceptional Cat Foster Oppurrtunity: We have accepted into our shelter a 1-2 year old, special needs cat, too frail to be a part of our regular adoption program and he requires placement in a permanent foster home or very special adoptive home. Romeo was found as a stray by a good citizen in early Spring 2014, and he is so very sociable and likes to be petted, but he has a medical condition caused by a trauma. It is called a diaphragmatic hernia. This condition causes Romeo to have labored breathing and he gets out of breath if he exerts himself too much. The vet has said that surgery is not an option because the injury has already healed. He eats only canned soft food. Romeo can probably live a full life and his condition doesn't cause him to have any other medical issues. He would very much like to be in a home where he can play floor games and be somebody's lap cat. By selflessly opening up your heart and home to Romeo, you are giving him a chance to enjoy a loving, attentive home setting instead of a busy shelter environment. You can even foster our cat living in an apartment or condo (with your landlord's approval), as Romeo's abilities to jump and run are very limited, so a small space can actually be beneficial. To meet Romeo and learn all about how to foster or even adopt him, call BCHS at 618 664 4068 or email BCHS at bchs4pets@sbcglobal.net or fill out a foster home application.
As a foster home, Bond County Humane Society will provide you with food, litter, vet care and medications. Anything you buy yourself is considered a tax-deductible donation. We ask that you treat Romeo as if he were your own and keep us updated on his status. If you ever have questions, never hesitate to contact BCHS. Contact BCHS to foster/adopt our loving and special Romeo now! Thank you! [updated October 31, 2014]

Shelter hours are 1:00-5:00pm Mon & Tues, Thurs & Fri. (Sun, Wed by appointment ONLY). Contact BCHS today to join, volunteer, adopt, foster, donate!
