Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I found a kitten, can you take it?
A: Our facility is currently full. We are willing to take the responsibility of vetting and adopting your found kitten, can you foster? If you cannot foster, maybe someone you know can. It’s time to network on your social media platforms and tag us @forpetssakerescue. We will work with anyone who can foster. We will pay for vaccines, spay/neuter, deworming, flea treatment, microchipping, and provide any supplies we have in house.
Q: Can I surrender my pet?
A: We limit owner surrenders. The quick answer is no. We find that cats tend to become depressed in a kennel, stop eating, and go into organ failure. We ask pet owners to find them homes. Be proactive, not reactive. Rehoming takes time. Do not wait until the last minute. Home to home scenarios are always the best transition for pets. Our resources are focused on stray, injured, and those that are too weak to fend for themselves. Try https://rehome.adoptapet.com/ to find more adopters!
Q: How can I adopt?
A: Please go to our Adoptions page. You will find available animals and applications for adoption.
Q: I live in a different state. Do you transport?
A: We currently transport from MS to CT and IL. If you are in a state along those routes, we can definitely transport an animal to you. Our transports take place to each destination once a month.
From MS to CT, we travel along I-81.
Q: Can you transport my cats?
A: Transports are a not that simple. We have different partners that will take different cats with different expectations of vetting completed. Priority will always go to the cats in our facility and those in foster. If you have an animal that is healthy and can be transported, please email email@example.com their name, age, gender, vetting completed, personality info, if the animal likes cats, dogs, or children. We will need 2 photos (one front facing and one of the body). Please make sure photos are clear and do not have a lot in the background.
Q: Do you take dogs?
A: We are a cat only facility. We do not have the resources to house dogs. On occasion, we are able to place a puppy or small dog in foster homes. Large dogs are much harder. We will always try but we need the following: name, age, sex, vetting completed, and personality information including what the dog is and isn’t good with such as cats, dogs and children. This does not guarantee placement but it does help. You can email us this info. We recommend you create a post on Facebook and tag us @forpetssakerescue. Tip: Include as many photos as you can. One direct image of the dogs face without hands or humans in the image is best. Let their personality shine!
Q: Does FPSR help spay/neuter community cats?
A: We are a cat rescue. Our resources concentrate on rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming cats. We are not a TNR group. There are TNR groups nearby. For Harrison County, please contact Fixin The Coast. For Jackson County, contact Feral Feline Coalition. For Hancock County, go to their website for more information.
Q: How can I volunteer?
A: Our facility is open 10am-2pm daily for volunteers to help with litter boxes, water bowls, general cleaning (washing dishes, sweeping, mopping), putting away laundry, etc. If you are unable to come physically, we have crafting projects for children and could also use sewing with hammocks. Please reach out to us for further details or if you have an idea not listed. Once a volunteer has been trained and is familiar with the facility, they are welcome to come anytime.
Q: Do you have an Amazon wishlist?
A: Yes! https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2EAPSWHT5MFQI?ref_=wl_share
Q: Where can I mail donations?
A: Our mailing address is PO Box 468, Long Beach, MS 39560.
Q: Do you offer community programs?
A: While are a small rescue with limited resources, we offer what we have to our community. Please follow our facebook for updates. As of July 2022, we do offer vaccines for cats and dogs free to the public. Please call 228-202-7125 to schedule an appointment.
