Adopt Me: Chico has had a rough start in life

He is FIV positive, but that doesn't mean he can't enjoy a good quality of life for quite some time!

ThoroldNews, in partnership with the Welland SPCA, brings you this feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.


Meet Chico, a one-year-old male brown and white tabby found as a stray.

Chico is FIV positive. FIV is only contagious to other felines and cannot be transmitted to humans. A cat can be infected with FIV and enjoy good quality of life for quite some time before developing any complications.
Some cats live a long and healthy life and never have any problems secondary to their FIV Infection. We recommend that FIV positive cats be adopted into single cat homes or into a home with other FIV positive cats.

For more information on adopting Chico, please contact the Welland SPCA at 905-735-1552.
