Call him Rocky for short.

Rockland the Tenth, or Rocky as his friends call him, is in need of a Christmas miracle. He just wants to go to a forever-home for the holidays.

  • Quick Facts
  • Breed: domestic shorthair
  • Age: 3.5 years
  • Sex: male
  • Size: 14 pounds
  • Color: orange, tabby
  • Spayed/Neutered: yes
  • Housetrained: uses litterbox

This is Rocky's fourth time in the shelter, but not because he's not a lovable dude. Those at ACCT Philly describe him as "super sweet" and a "fabulous hugger."

He's fallen on hard times because, unfortunately, his family could not bring him along when they moved. 

While Rocky is a FIV-positive cat, he had been living with another cat for more than a year with no issue. Being FIV-positive doesn't mean he can't live a long, happy life around other cats.

ACCT Philly can help those looking to adopt Rocky understand the virus and become informed on how FIV-positive felines are just like any other.
