Meet Helena

Check out this beautiful girl!  Helena is a bit of a shy girl and would love a forever family that is willing to give her time to adjust.  She promises not to take too long, though. She is very friendly once she warms up.  She loves being brushed, getting chin and head scratches, and just spending time with her people.  She would make a great companion for someone looking for a laid back kitty that just wants to enjoy life and take naps in the sunshine.  She promises to give you all of the love she has, and only asks for your love in return.

Helena is part of our "state capitals" group and came to ARF from a home with MANY cats.  She is used to having feline companionship and would do best in a home with another furry friend.  She would do great with kids of any age and, given a proper introduction, would probably do just fine with gentle doggies.

Helean currently resides at the Oswego PetSmart, 350 Fifth St, in Oswego.  Come by and check her out.  She can't wait to find her forever family.


Helena is micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccinations,  spayed, and litter box trained.

Helena's adoption fee is $135.  If you are interested in meeting her, please fill out our Online Application today!  

Once your application has been approved, an ARF volunteer will be able to contact you to arrange a meeting.

Helena is still available for adoption but might have other applicants. Learn more about our pet adoption process.

All pets adopted from A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation include the following as part of their adoption fee:

  • Spay/neuter or a certificate for a low-cost spay/neuter when medically recommended
  • Microchip and registration, a permanent identification to reunite lost pets with their owners
  • Initial de-worming and flea and tick treatment
  • Age-appropriate testing for heartworm/FIV-FELV
  • Age-appropriate vaccines
  • Pre-adoption medical exam
  • A certificate for a free healthy pet exam at one of A.R.F.’s participating veterinarians within 7 days of adoption
  • Offer for a no-risk 30 day free trial with Trupanion pet medical insurance

If a cat or dog is on our website, it is still available for adoption but might have other applicants. If you find yourself interested in one of our animals, submit a no-commitment application immediately. Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but does get you a head start with the adoption approval process. Due to a high volume of applications, we are often unable to respond to questions until your application has been approved in approximately 3-5 business days.

We do not schedule meetings until you have an approved application.

A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation does not have a facility where applicants can visit our animals.  The majority of our dogs and cats are brought to adoption events by our volunteers. We invite everyone to come to our events, but we give priority to pre-approved applicants.

If you’re invited to meet an animal:

  • Plan to arrive on time (or early), as we cannot hold animals for any reason.
  • All human household members and dogs (if adopting another dog), must be present in order to be considered as a potential adopter.

Thank you for your interest and cooperation!
