FIV+ Cats = Pawsitively Adoptable! 

FIV or Feline Immunodeficiency Virus is an incurable virus that can cause the immune system of infected cats to be compromised. Immunodeficiency is the medical term used to describe the body’s inability to develop a normal immune response.

As a result of immunodeficiency, most infected cats do not show symptoms and have normal life expectancy, however they are prone to developing other infections and certain types of cancer.  Click here to learn more.
