A cat that suffered frostbite and a loss of tissue in both ears during a recent snowstorm is now available for adoption at Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control, the organization said today.
Circe, a 2-year-old black female cat, was found and reported during the last storm when wind chills were 45 degrees below zero and life-threatening to animals left outside.
After being reported, she was named by the shelter staff and medically treated using donation-based dollars, the statement said. During her recovery, she had a ?sweet and friendly personality,? the shelter said.
Because of the high number of people who have expressed an interest in adopting Circe, Animal Care & Control is accepting adoption profiles for her only Thursday and Friday, the statement said. The shelter will then use a lottery system to select one candidate to meet and interact with Circe on Monday.
If the first candidate doesn'?t adopt her, two alternates could be given the opportunity.
To apply to adopt Circe, print a Pet Adoption Profile from the Animal Care & Control website at www.fwacc.org and fax it to 260-427-5514, or fill out a form at the shelter at 3020 Hillegas Road from noon to 5 p.m. Thursday or Friday.
When you fill out the profile, write ?Circe Adoption? on it, the statement said.
