Goose is a male six-month-old kitten who is now available for adoption at Valley Animal Center. Goose is a very special kitty looking for a special owner to care for him and give him endless love and cuddles.



Goose was rescued in March where he was found covered in pesticides. At just three-weeks-old, Goose suffered severely damaged eyelids as a result of the pesticide exposure. Goose entered our foster program where his foster family loved and nurtured him until he was healthy enough for surgery. After a five-week recovery, it was discovered that Goose’s eyelashes were growing on the inside of his eyelids causing him pain and irritation. To relieve his suffering yet again, Goose underwent a special corrective procedure. Goose has now fully recovered, and is ready to find his forever home. animal rescue

Goose loves playing with his foster family. He is great around dogs and other cats; he is harness-trained, and enjoys car rides. He is a very social kitten, and he loves saying “Hi” to all of his human friends! Like all of our adoptable animals, Goose is up-to-date on his vaccinations and is neutered. If you would like to give Goose his forever home, please stop by Valley Animal Center to meet him! Goose is available for adoption for just $90 at the Cat Adoption Center, open 7 days a week from 10 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Due to the number of surgeries Goose underwent, the medical expenses for his care were costly. If you would like to help support the cost of his medical bills, please donate by calling us at (559) 233-8690, or visit our website.
