VIDEO: Find Me My Furever Home – Henderson at the Chilliwack SPCA

Henderson, also known as Biggy, has FIV, a virus similar to HIV in humans

Find Me My Furever Home is a weekly video featuring animals up for adoption at the Chilliwack SPCA. It is put together by The Progress in partnership with the Chilliwack SPCA.

This is Henderson, also known as Biggy. He’s a five-year-old stray male cat who’s up for adoption at the Chilliwack SPCA.

When he came into the shelter, the SPCA found out Biggy has feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV), similar to HIV in humans.

“FIV is not contractible to humans, it is just contractible to other cats,” said Chloé MacBeth, Chilliwack SPCA branch manager.

Biggy does not need to take daily medication, but he is more susceptible to infection and some cancers due to the FIV. He must be adopted into a home without any other cats, or with cats who also have FIV.

“He’s a really sweet guy and needs a very special home.”

Biggy’s SPCA ID number is 505352.

If you’re interested in adopting Biggy, or any other animal from the Chilliwack SPCA, call 604-823-6612. Hours are Friday to Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. You can also call to make an appointment outside of those hours.
