Paula is an adorable cat with a great sense of humor. She is the perfect balance of independent and interactive. Her current family fell in love with her because she does summersaults and likes to show off her belly. She gets along well with dogs (she's always lived with one) and she tolerates children.
She purrs loudly when she sleeps which makes for great white noise. She was rescued from the mean streets of LA when she was about 2 (her owners had simply left her in the streets). She was initially very shy and kept to herself but over the last 9 years she has evolved into an affectionate companion but not too affectionate, she also likes her independence. Paula currently lives with another cat Isis (also listed for adoption), a dog and a 4 yr old boy and would do well with or without other animals. She's a fairly low-maintenance cat and has no significant behavioral problems. She's in good health, negative for FIV/FeLV, spayed and up-to-date on all vaccines.

Brooklyn Bridge Animal Welfare Coalition, Inc.
Our rescue group was formed in December 2007, but all our Board Members have had extensive experience rescuing and working with abandoned animals. We often work with other rescue organizations to find appropriate and safe foster and adoptive homes for our pet clients. We regularly go to areas with abandoned animals and collect them. The animals are taken to a licensed veterinarian examined, treated and spayed or neutered. Every effort is made to work with the animal and our foster and adoptive families to find a suitable forever home.
For those animals who are truly wild and feral, we release the animal in a safe and secure location after it has recovered from its medical treatment. We also work with certified wildlife rehabilitators to rescue injured and orphaned wildlife. Our organization is focused on improving the welfare of the abandoned animals in need of help in Brooklyn. In furthering that goal, our resources are focused on the animals.
Aside from a few minimal overhead costs such as our website and phone services, our entire budget is spent on animal care such as medical and food costs.
