Dolly's Personality

Dolly is a truly amazing kitty. She is not shy one bit. This beautiful girl is very friendly with everyone she meets. Dolly's outgoing personality saved her life – she was found outdoors looking for food, love and a safe haven from oppressive heat outdoors in August. She loves being petted – anything to get the love and affection she was denied while living outdoors fending for herself. Dolly is also very playful – she still acts like a kitten!

What Type of Home Dolly Needs

Dolly's forever home needs to have plenty of room for her to roam around and have multiple people to interact with. She would be great for a family with older kids. Dolly will probably need to be the only cat in her forever home. She hasn't been 'tested' with dogs. She may do find but would insist on being the 'queen of her castle.'

Where Dolly Came From

Dolly came into our care by accident. One of our volunteers was visiting family in Nashville, TN when she spotted this beautiful, emaciated girl. Unable to find an animal rescue in Nashville to help, our volunteer boarded a plane with Dolly and brought her to Northern VA. To honor her roots in Nashville – home of country music – we named her Dolly (Parton).

PLEASE NOTE:  we only adopt to residents of the DC metro area, which includes DC, Prince Georges and Montgomery Counties in MD, and Arlington, Fairfax, Prince William, and Loudoun Counties in VA.
