This video comes to you from the Diana Currie Nichols Feline Leukemia Sanctuary and adoption Center in Austin Texas.
Our Feline Leukemia Adoption Center is the first of its kind in the nation. Since 2011, we’ve been taking in FeLV+ cats from the Central Texas area, as well as all over the country and continent. We are currently participating in humane research studies in partnership with the University of Florida to learn more about feline leukemia virus, and are regularly making new discoveries about the disease.
Historically, cats with this virus are euthanized upon diagnosis; but here at APA!, we know that FeLV+ cats live normal, happy lives; and though their lifespan has the potential to be shorter, we believe their lives matter, too. So, we are dedicated to the humane research and improvement of shelter knowledge on the virus. APA!'s FeLV+ cat adoption fees are waived and the APA! Medical Triage and Wellness Clinic will provide treatment for illnesses related to their FeLV+ status for their lifetime.
If you want to adopt a cat, consider a FeLV cat. You can go to the website austinpetsalive.org and search all dogs and cats that are available. You know you want one. This is the day.
