Wes is another cat that was transferred from Georgia to the SPCA of Hancock County, and he is still in need of a special home. Here's why.

This lovable boy who absolutely loves snuggles has come back positive for Feline Leukemia, or FeLV.  Basically, FeLV affects the white blood cell count, making it harder for poor Wes to fight off infection and disease. He is more susceptible to sickness, so Wes might not live as long as a normal cat. His differences make him less desirable to some people.

He doesn’t let it get him down though, Wes is very content just to sit in your lap all day and be petted like any other normal cat. There isn't any question that he enjoys the attention as he has a motor/purr like nobody’s business!
In order for Wes to go into a home with other cats, they would first have to get the specific FeLV vaccine and stay up to date on that, or else they might get it themselves.
Wes is the favorite cat of many of the staff here at the shelter, he's the perfect boy to snuggle with after a long day.  Find out for yourself!  Please make an appointment at the SPCA of Hancock County  and meet our boy yourself.
The SPCA of Hancock County serves Ellsworth, Mount Desert Island and beyond, and is still operating by appointment-only for the safety of the animals, as well as visitors and staff. If you are looking to adopt, please check their website where they have an adoption application and the available animals listed. For general inquiries, please call them at 207-667-8088, email info@spcahancockcounty.org, or send them a Facebook message. The shelter is located on Route 3 in Trenton.
