Valley Animal Center: J.J.

IN THE February 10 ISSUE

FROM THE 2018 Articles,
andAnimal Rescue Adventures

by Joseph Riloquio

Joseph Riloquio is an Administrative and Humane Education Assistant with Valley Animal Center in Fresno, California. VAC shares their animal rescue adventures with us every month. Check out KRL’s interview with VAC to learn more about what they do.

J.J. is a female, nine-month-old domestic shorthair tabby. She was surrendered to Valley Animal Center when she was just three months old. She was found abandoned with her four other littermates and was rescued by a Good Samaritan.
J.J. and her brothers and sisters were nursed back to health by our animal care team. Once they were ready to find a home, they were placed on our cat adoption floor. J.J. and her siblings were so adorable, friendly, and playful they all quickly found homes to call their own!



Sadly, J.J. was returned a few months later. Her adopter was not fully prepared to care for a kitten and felt it was better for J.J. to come back to Valley Animal Center to find a proper home. So, by no fault of her own, J.J. returned to VAC and is once again continuing her search for a forever home.

Though she had a rough start, this adorable kitten is ready to find a new family to love her. She is very friendly, loves playing with our other cats, and would be great for any type of home.

We will continue to care for J.J. until she finds that perfect home. While we were happy to see her again, and love having such a playful kitty around, we know that she deserves a great home to call her own.

If you would like more information about J.J. or any of our adoptable animals, please call or visit the Valley Animal Center. Our cat and dog adoption centers are open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. All of our animals have been spayed/neutered, are up to date on their vaccinations, and are micro-chipped as well!
