Extra Care for Long-term Residents

At ROAR most of our residents come through our doors and, a 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. ZORRO and SAMPSON are two of our favorite examples.



Andre & Antwan        

Andre and Antwan are young, very sweet, large black cats who were found on ROAR’s doorstep in a sealed brown box with holes for air. The matter is still under investigation with Ridgefield’s Animal Control Officer. However, ROAR was able to make both boys available for adoption. These handsome, two year old boys are looking  for their forever home with families who will love and cherish them as  they should be.  Andre and Antwan are active and get along with most of the other cats in ROAR’s shelter but it depends on personality. Antwan is the bigger of the two at 16 pounds. Andre is 12.4 pounds. Andre and Antwan would do best adopted out separately. They are house trained, up-to-date on vaccinations and are neutered.

***Please remember to keep your cats indoors, especially during this time of year, as predators are active preparing for the harsh weather ahead.***








Katie is a seven-year old boxer mix with a beautiful brindle coat. She is extremely sweet, gentle, and is VERY smart and social. Katie came to ROAR as a local surrender. Her owner loved her very much but was no longer able to keep her. Katie is well trained. She is currently housed with a very timid dog and she is doing wonderfully. Katie is not fond of cats. Therefore, a “catless” home would be best. She is up-to-date on her vaccinations, spayed, heart worm negative and micro-chipped.
