Emma & Bevan-SENIOR STARS!

Ferdinand’s Familia & Rescue specializes in Disabled, Old and Behavior-issue Animal Relations.

All adoptions require a home visit.  This is not just for the animal, but for the human too!  Most of the time the Adoptions work out, but every once in awhile a baby will come back to the rescue.  The animals are secure and safe until they find that perfect home.

These 2 Senior Stars are looking for homes!  Both are special needs!  If you would like to meet Emma or Bevan, please send us a message or email Janice@ferdinandsfamilia.org.  THANK YOU!

It’s Cat & Kitten Season!

Ferdinand’s Familia & Rescue has a couple of cats that were kittens from last season still waiting for a home.
