Josh is a 2-year-old cat who has lived with a Lake Erie Metro Animal Rescue foster family for a year, said Kay Spielman of Dearborn, a volunteer for Lake Erie Metro Animal Rescue, a no-kill shelter which showcases homeless pets at , 43665 Ford Rd. from noon to 4 p.m. on the first and third Saturdays of each month.
Josh weighes about 15 pounds and has a relaxed personality. During his visit with Canton Patch, he didn't appear overly curious or particularly fearful. Spielman said he's comfortable around both cats and dogs.
"He loves attention and he likes to be held," she said.
He has been neutered, tested for feline AIDS and leukemia and worms and has had the required vaccine shots. The $50 adoption fee covers the cost of his care.
LEMAR volunteers' main goal is to place all the animals in their care into permanent homes. In the meantime, the no-kill shelter is looking for volunteers who are willing to offer foster homes to cats or dogs (or both). Donations are appreciated in the form of pet carriers; cages; litter boxes and litter; towels; sheets; blankets; pet food; treats; brushes; leashes; collars; bowls; and animal toys. Cash can be donated in the form of gift certificates or payment of vet bills.
