The Tookany Valley Chronicles: Pet Adoption Edition – Jet

“Jet is an 8-year-old male cat who was surrendered to the shelter,” according to Ms. Katie Nagy, Humane Educator at the Montgomery County SPCA.

According to Ms. Nagy, the situation that Jet found himself in is described in his SPCA file as “Jet’s owner had to move to an apartment where there were no pets allowed and could not take him along.”

“He is a sweet cat who is very deserving of a new home to live out the second half of his life,” stated Ms. Nagy.

“Please consider inviting Jet into your family by contacting the Montgomery County SPCA Abington location for more details and to request an application to adopt Jet,” stated Ms. Nagy.



According to a statement from the Montgomery County SPCA, in order to adopt an animal you must:

• Have valid photo identification.

• Be at least 18 years of age.

• Be the owner/renter of a property or have the owner’s/renter’s permission (this includes adults living with their parents).

• Provide proof that pets are permitted under a rental/lease agreement (if applicable).

Adoption hours at the Abington Shelter of the Montgomery County SPCA are Monday through Friday from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Saturday from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM, and Sunday from 12:00 Noon to 3:00 PM.
