Adopt Charlie Brown. Sandy Geddry

When Responsible Pet Care’s shelter manager begins her day she is greeted at her desk by Charlie Brown. Every morning he makes time to visit with her and to help her do her paperwork.
Charlie Brown is an eight year old cat. He lives up to the reputation that orange, male cats have of being very laid back and lovable. He is very happy being around people. He would be the cat that will meet you at the door when you come home from work.
Charlie Brown is perfect except for one small thing. He has tested positive to having FiV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus.) This is a feline disease that does not infect humans. The research indicates that FiV cats can live with other cats in a harmonious relationship.
If you have a soft spot for fluffy, orange cats call Responsible Pet Care to make a private appointment to meet Charlie Brown.
