Please contact ARF for more information about this pet.

We welcome specific questions. Due to high volume of applications, we may not be able to respond immediately. Your patience is appreciated.

If an animal is on our website, it is still available but might have other applicants. If you find yourself interested in one of our animals, it is in your best interest to submit an application immediately. Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but does get you a head start with the adoption approval process.
We do not schedule meetings until you have an approved application.
As an all-volunteer, foster home based organization, ARF does not have a facility where applicants can visit our animals. The majority of our dogs and cats are brought to adoption events by our volunteers. We invite everyone to come to our events, but we must give priority to pre-approved applicants.

Male, neutered, about 1 year old (as of June 2016), microchipped, up to date on vaccinations, currently in a foster home, to be adopted with his sister Dory, adoption fee for the pair $130.

Please meet Nemo and his sister Dory. We received these two kitties in late October when they were about 3 months old. They had been ferals and were terrified of people. We spent a lot of time and gentle persistence to develop their trust and become fun, loveable, gentle souls. They turned into little sweeties that slept on our bed with us and Dory became my lap cat. They are still shy until they get to know you, but are definitely worth the time. They probably will do better in a house without little children. They get along wonderfully with other cats and have had minimal experience with dogs. Nemo is a soft shiny tabby and Dory is a beautiful light tabby with lots of orange and blond highlights .They are neutered, chipped and up to date on vaccinations. Dory and Nemo have excellent kitty manners. They do not claw furniture or climb the drapes and they always use the litter box nicely. These two are a bonded pair and so must stay together and have special pricing of $130.00 for the pair. Because of their shyness they don’t do well in a cage at adoption events so we will let you meet them in our home with an approved application and an appointment.
Please consider adding these lovely fur babies to your family.

If you are interested in meeting Dory and Nemo, you can fill out an online adoption application at Once your application has been approved, an ARF volunteer will contact you to arrange a meeting with the cat. Filling out the application does not obligate you in any way.

If you’re invited to meet an animal, plan to arrive on time or early,
as we cannot hold animals.
All household members must be present at time of adoption, including dogs.
We appreciate your cooperation.
