Pet of the Month

Augusta and Savannah

 Augusta and Savannah are two special ARC kittens who are looking for their forever home(s). The pair had been abandoned at a construction site and were crying loudly enough to be found by a passerby. Luckily for the two kittens, that passerby was Traci, an ARC volunteer. Traci took them home and fostered them even though she had cats of her own. Augusta and Savannah are now a little over one year old and have been spayed. They currently are in the cat room in Thao Dien, where they can be found relaxing and hanging out with the other cats.

Since their rough start, the kittens have always been a bit skittish on first meetings with people, but then warm up and become very loving. Augusta, the little white and ginger girl, is typically the most laid back of the two. Savannah, a watchful ginger, is often found grooming and taking care of her sister. The two have always been together, and all of the volunteers would love to see them adopted together, but that isn’t a requirement.

Jasmine

 This gorgeous 5-month-old girl was found in the Thu Thiem area unable to walk properly and very weak and scared, apparently after being hit by a vehicle. She was rescued after a caring security guard, who had been trying to catch and help her since the previous day, flagged down a couple of Sunday cyclists. Together they managed to get her to SPC with ARC’s help for treatment and care. Dr. Nghia had hoped he could save her front leg, but it was too badly damaged and it had to be amputated. However, within two days of the surgery Jasmine was bouncing around and ready for anything— nothing is going to hold this little girl back! She is in a lovely foster home, and is making great progress, but really needs to find her forever family to continue growing in confidence. She is friendly and affectionate and gets on with other dogs. She will grow to be a small to medium-sized, and first we thought she might struggle with stairs, but she seems to conquer everything in her way.

If you would like to meet Augusta, Savannah or Jasmine, please contact the ARC adoption team at arcpets@gmail.com
