MONROE, La. (KNOE) - Meet Emerald! She’s about a year old and loves attention. She’s available at River Cities Humane Society for Cats.

“Yes she does have special needs you can see her face here, she’s got a little bit of a bum eye, she has glaucoma, so she does get drops every day,” says Amber Meeves with the shelter.

She says Emerald would probably do best in a calmer home.

“Quieter home, maybe older kids, maybe no dog or an older dog just something calm,” says Meeves. “If you’re interested in adopting Emerald here you can go to our website and fill out your pre-adoption application for her and we’ll give you a call and schedule an appointment to meet her. I mean, she’s so sweet, so friendly and honestly special needs cats are a lot harder to adopt out because people are worried about the special needs and the cost.”

They’ve also got applications for fostering and volunteering on their website.

You can reach out through Facebook or call at (318) 343-3031 if you have questions.

The shelter is open between 12 p.m. – 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and they’re located at 5302 DeSiard Street in Monroe.
