William Shakespaw

To cat or not to cat, that is the question! William Shakespaw has a tale to share, and lucky the family who gets to be his future audience. This highly entertaining boy was locally rescued, and despite some significant issues with his heart, has become the Bard of Bianca’s Furry Friends, scooting into the arms of his visitors, never turning down a good long nuzzle with human or furry friends—including doggos! William will need an echocardiogram in the fall, and possibly a balloon valvuloplasty to improve his heart health. We’re looking for a foster home that we hope will become his purrament one, and predict you’ll immediately be reciting sonnets to each other, professing your undying devotion while cozying up together in the first home he’s ever known.

Our quality veterinarian team provides all the services you would expect from a private veterinary practice, and when you visit our Pet Health Center, not only do you receive low-cost pet care, but proceeds help support our mission to save lives.
