Adopted! Pet of the Week Spanky

Adopted! Pet of the Week Spanky

Update: Spanky is in his forever home. Don't forget about his furry friends!

Spanky is a bit of a standout with his roughed up ear: due to hematoma surgery, it is permanently bent back. Spanky has an independent spirit who enjoys affection on his terms. He'll run to you to be petted, and even gives head butts.

When he's had enough, sometimes he gives a little growl. But most of the time, he simply turns around and walks away.

For over a year now, he has been waiting for a patient rescuer to come forward. A special person, with cat experience, who will give him lots of time to adjust and feel secure in his new home. Someone who will let him develop his trust at his own pace.

He is a quirky character who is lovable and entertaining. He's still somewhat playful, but he also loves to just hang out and chill. He tolerates other kitties; however, he would probably be happiest as an only cat. That way he could have all the attention to himself so that he can truly blossom, develop, bond and show affection. A quiet adult home would suit him best.

About Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League

Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League is a limited-access humane society and provides services to more than 7,000 cats, dogs, puppies and kittens each year. Operating continuously since 1925, we have been positively impacting animal welfare and addressing overpopulation in Palm Beach County through a variety of services.

Through the adoption and spay/neuter programs, our vision is to ensure that there are no homeless animals and every animal has a home in Palm Beach County.

Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, Humane Society of the Palm Beaches, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, receiving no state or federal funding. It is dependent exclusively upon private donations, grants, bequests and fundraising events to provide quality programs and services to the community. Your donations directly support the services and programs in place to help animals in need.

Our mission is to provide shelter to lost, homeless and unwanted animals; to furnish medical and other services for the care of companion animals; to care for, protect, and find quality homes for homeless and neglected animals; to advocate animal welfare, community involvement and education to further the bond between people and animals, for the mutual benefit of both.
