Abys in Need – URGENT! Harley in Orlando, FL

Oh, this is just too sad. Poor guy. And you know “due out date” is probably a euphemism for the “E” word…It looks like his front leg may have been injured, too.

Animal ID: A313516 Room No.: WCI21

Hi, my name is Harley. I am an approximately 9 year old ruddy and white neutered male. I am fearful and I weigh approximately 7 pounds. I have been at Orange County Animal Services since Monday, March 16, 2015. My due out date is Sunday, March 22, 2015.

Find out more about our adoption process here. Each animal may be available for adoption, pending acceptable temperament testing and a health screen.

If you are looking for me, please come to Orange County Animal Services
at 2769 Conroy Road, Orlando, FL. The phone number is (407)836-3111.”

I know people on the Aby Facebook Club are working on getting him out, but I wanted to share him here, as well. Florida is really bad for older pets – especially cats – being turned out to fend for themselves when their humans die and the children come down to take care of their parents’ belongings. The adult children either don’t realise how much the cat meant to their parent, or they don’t care…but it happens a lot down there.

  1. Hi there.

    I could provide temporary fostering for an Aby. But, I can’t get to Florida, and I can’t afford plane tickets. If there was a way to get him here, I could at least take care of him until someone else wants him permanently. I have 8 cats, and I don’t want to mix an unknown cat into my “herd,” but, I have a large basement, and large cages that I’ve collected over the years, and I can at least offer him companionship, warmth, food, and shelter with no “expiration date.”



  2. Does the Aby rescue have someone in Orlando? I’m local. I don’t have the space to foster, but if they need feet on the ground to prevent his falling victim to his due out date, let me know. I’ve asked in one of the local groups of OCAS volunteers whether they can tell how firm the rescue interest mentioned on his page is, and I’ll share him locally, too.

    Two homeless Abys in Orlando in the past month. This is starting to look like a sign.
