Please do not call the vet practice. The phone lines are clogged and interfering with the practice for regular clients. Please see the notice below.

Thank you for your overwhelming response to assist in various ways with this rescue. I have been asked to outline what is the current plan to handle this situation.
First, and most important, please DO NOT call the vet's office any more. While they appreciate the interest in adopting, fostering, assisting, etc., we have now clogged their phone system so only 1 in 10 calls coming in actually is dealing with their veterinary business. Their regular clients are having a really hard time making contact. As much as they appreciate the support, it is becoming a problem for their office.
INFORMATION ON THE CATS: I am hoping to have a status, and list of available cats with some information on age, color, sex, health, etc., by sometime on Wednesday or Thursday. As soon as this information is received, it will be made available. Please be patient.
FOR THOSE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING DIRECTLY: We have identified an adoption screening coordinator, Linda Gray. If you are interested in adopting one of the cats in this rescue, please email her directly at [email protected]
, and include in the subject line "VT aby/bengal rescue - adopter". Linda will send you the questionnaire necessary to begin the screening process. Please return the questionnaire to her upon completion.
FOR THOSE INTERESTED IN FOSTERING: Donna Gonyea has agreed to act as our screening coordinator for potential foster homes/placements. If you are interested in fostering any of these cats, please email her directly at [email protected]
, and include in the subject line "VT aby/bengal rescue - foster". Donna will send you the necessary foster documents to begin the screening process. Please return the questionnaire to her upon completion.
TRANSPORT INFORMATION: Specific information regarding transports and transport needs, to adopters and fosters, will be coming in the near future.
Again, thank you for your interest, support, patience and cooperation in dealing with this situation.
