Her Story: Girly Girl was brought to WCDC after her owner; Starly Susan Pupke was involved in a terrible accident. Pupke was a well-known animal rescuer in the local area. On November 3rd, while over near Lane Community College, Pupke noticed an abandoned cat on the side of the road. She quickly pulled over to the other side of the street with hopes of rescuing the cat from oncoming traffic. Pupke began crossing the street, and was acknowledged by the first approaching driver who slowed to a stop to let her pass. However, the car behind did not see her in the road and sped up to pass around the stopped car ahead, hitting and killing Pupke instantly.
Pupke’s passion for animal rescue was greatly acknowledged throughout the community. She was a selfless, caring individual who dedicated her life, even to the very end, to saving the lives of animals in need.
Girly Girl is the last of Pupke’s pets in need of adoption. She is a very calm and affectionate cat who loves cuddling and sitting on laps. Girly Girl was raised in a rural area, so she is not street smart, but may be an indoor and outdoor cat in the right location. Though she is a little wary of other cats at first, she is quickly accepting to them after spending some time adapting to her surroundings.
If interested in adopting Girly Girl into your home you may reach WCDC by phone, email or by visiting their offsite adoption center at Petsmart on Coburg Road.
