I wouldn't say having only 10 cats listed for adoption is necessarily suspicious. It is - at least partly - a sanctuary and not an adoption center. If I paid from five to ten thousand to get a cat in there, I would probably expect he is going to stay for life, why else would I pay that kind of money? It doesn't appear to be so huge that the cats wouldn't get any individual attention. Overcrowding is much less like when the entry fee is that high.
This doesn't mean it is a good place, we just don't know. Do we have anyone in that area who could take a look?

FeLV cat -New Jersey- I need to find him a Sanctuary Hmmm. Only 10 cats listed for adoption on their petfinder site. And only one of those, an FIV+ boy, is listed as special needs. This also makes me suspicious about the long term viability of the place. You have to be committed to finding homes for the cats. They need human families, attention, and they won't get that in a giant sanctuary setting. And if you're not focused on adoptions, you have to strictly limit your intake to avoid becoming overwhelmed. _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org
