Let’s Make Home Happen for Coral!

Coral is a special needs kitty cat. She especially needs someone who wants a lot of love and affection because Coral is a serious lap cat. She loves her people and wants to be near them at all times. If you stop petting her, she will gently reach out for your hand as if to say, “wait, I was really enjoying that, please continue!” She will reward you with affection and the most enthusiastic purring. Coral does have special needs, she gets fluids for kidney disease three times per week, but is very good about the process. At 9 years old, Coral would do well in a quiet home with or without other low energy pets. If you foster Coral, the DCSPCA provides the equipment needed to administer her treatment. Their veterinarian will also instruct you on the procedure of administering fluids.

During the COVID-19 state of emergency, the DCSPCA adoption process has changed. If you are interested in fostering or adopting Coral, or any of our other available pets, please visit After choosing a pet and submitting the online application, you must make an appointment to meet the pet you want to adopt. You can also find updates and resources for pet owners during the pandemic on the website and the DCSPCA Facebook page.
