Adopt Me: Richard is looking for a special home

He is FIV positive, but he can still 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 Richard, a six-year-old male from the Niagara Falls shelter.
He is a very friendly guy, who likes meeting new people.
Richard 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 Richard, please contact the Welland SPCA at 905-735-1552.
