Adopt Azrael Sandy Geddry


Not all cats and dogs are snuggly, feel good animals. With many of the pets that enter a shelter it takes time and patience to make a bond.

When Azrael entered Responsible Pet Care as a stray it was obvious to the staff that he had not been cared for in a long while. He was fearful and did not allow anyone to come close to him. He was not accustomed to having someone touch him or speak to him in a soft manner.

The feline caregivers at the shelter worked their magic with Azrael. It took small, cautious steps but they were able to break through to Azrael and earn his trust.

Azrael is a turn around kitty. He has learned that humans can be good to have around. He needs a home with a person that will be patient with him. The reward for that patience will be realized when a bond is formed between Azrael and his new person.
