These animals are mostly seniors who have been unable to find forever homes because of age and/or health conditions. Since SARG is a no-kill organization, and these animals have been with us for a long time, we would appreciate contributions for their continuing care to cover medications and special foods. It's easy to make a donation to sponsor one of them using PayPal.
Sweet Pea is a senior bichon mix female. She turned 13
years old in August, 2020. She was turned over to us by the executor of her
deceased owner's estate. Several people offered her what
would have been great homes, but we decided she should remain as a permanent foster
because of some health issues, and because she suffers from separation
anxiety and does not adjust well to change. She cried for the first
two weeks in her foster home and has now bonded with her foster dad
and follows him everywhere ... she whines when he goes to the mailbox
without her and is very upset if she is left alone for any time at all.

Godiva is a very loving cat who loves to come and see what you
are doing. She is 6½ years old as of January, 2020. She enjoys
being petted and playing with anything that has a bell or a
feather. She is active and is naturally curious.
Godiva lives in Louisville, KY, with her foster mom.

My name is Hobbes. I am a year old as of December 1st, 2019. The vet
thinks I am going to be a big boy when I grow up. I’m an orange-and-white
tabby kitty. My foster mom calls me a Creamsicle cat. I’m not exactly
sure what that means, but she smiles when she says it, so I think it must
be good. I have a foster home where I am very much wanted and loved, and
I think I'll just stay here indefinitely!

Chloe is a little Shih-tzu who came to us with multiple health
problems, including cataracts on both eyes and diabetes. Her
elderly owner had brought her to a local vet to be euthanized
because of the health issues. She has
had surgery for the cataracts and is on a schedule of regular vet
visits to control her diabetes and other health issues. She is
9 - 10 years old as of 2019, and she will remain in the care of
SARG as a permanent foster.

Katie is a 9-year-old calico kitty who is declawed on her front paws.
Unlike some calicos, who can have a bit of an attitude, Katie is very
sweet and affectionate and loves to be petted and held. She weighs a bit
over 9 pounds and has a very soft, strikingly colorful coat. She
probably would be most happy as an only kitty. She is now in a long-term
foster home where she is very much loved.

Mimi is a black "special needs" kitty -- she was born feral with two
litter mates in June, 2009. We believe that these kittens have Siamese
somewhere in their lineage. Her litter mates were less feral in
behavior, and have been adopted. Mimi lives in a long-term foster home with other
cats and plays and gets along well with them. She loves to
cuddle in bed with people at night, and at that time loves to be petted.
During other times, Mimi will let people get only so close, although
she'll play with people who have interactive toys.
