Extra Care for Long-term Residents

At ROAR most of our residents come through our doors and after a short period of loving care here at the shelter, leave for their new homes. But, sometimes, even a sweet, beautiful animal gets passed by due to no fault of his/her own. The timing just isn’t right and the perfect match takes a little longer to be made. Because of their lengthier stay with us, these animals receive a little extra care. Some are given foster homes where they are exposed to real life family noises and smells as well as others animals and a real home life. Others receive extensive training in behavior classes and by ROAR’s trainers. The animals flourish in these situations instead of becoming more and more despondent while waiting for a home.


Badger is still waiting to find his forever home! He is currently in a foster home with another easygoing kitty. They play together very well and according to his foster mom, he is just a wonderful, loving sweet boy who is a joy to have!
Badger is inquisitive and loves to explore, whether it’s climbing into an open drawer, slinking under a dresser or sofa, or climbing on top of his scratching post. He is only two-years old and enjoys playing with his toy mouse, watching the birds outside and cuddling next to you on a bed or sofa. A vocal kitty, Badger will greet you with meows when he enters the room you’re in.
We recently learned that Badger has a heart condition known as Hypertrophic Obstructive Cardiomyopathy (HOCM). He is currently on a daily medication and will require check-ups to monitor the progression. However, he takes his medication easily and none of this discourages him and we hope it won’t discourage you!
Badger is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Please call the shelter to schedule an appointment to meet Badger.
***Please remember to keep your cats indoors, 
especially during this time of year.***
