Recently we lost our cat Penelope that had been in our lives for 17 years. After her passing my father spoke of getting another cat because of how lonely he was. My family had never adopted a pet before so I did some research using Petfinder, and found out the great rescues in the area. Northeast Animal Rescue was one of them. You could tell just by their website how dedicated they were to their cats in trying to find them the best homes. So after some time looking through the website my dad put in a application to adopt a cat. Two days later he got a phone call telling him he was approved. Jayme made the adoption process easy by talking with my dad thoroughly about what kind of cat he was looking for. She recommended to him Cherokee Rose a dilute calico cat with the personality he was looking for. They set up a date and time for my father to meet Cherokee Rose. We met Jayme at their Great Northeast Petsmart location so we could meet her. When you walk in the first thing on your left side is where some of their cats are kept and you can't miss them. At the time we arrived the volunteers were cleaning out the litter boxes, cages, giving them food, and the love and attention they deserve. We were taken into a back room to meet Cherokee Rose with one of the volunteers and Jayme. Right away my dad knew she was the one for him. She is so sweet, loving, gentle, and well behaved my dad was ecstatic. Jayme described Cherokee Rose to my dad exactly how she was. Jayme knows so much detail of each of her cats it is simply amazing. After the meeting, and my dad deciding to get her Jayme walked around with my father in the store to show him exactly what Cherokee liked as far as eating, and playing. You could tell that she takes the time with each of her cats in understanding them so that way they can go to a home fit perfectly for them. I was really surprised she did that, and it was a lot of help. She made the adoption go easy and not overwhelming. The volunteers were extremely nice, and friendly. I am glad we got Cherokee Rose from them. I would highly recommend Northeast Animal Rescue to anyone in the Philadelphia area. They are simply amazing and can not express how greatly I appreciate all that they did for my father, and for helping Cherokee Rose find her forever home.
