It is estimated that about 3% of seemingly healthy cats are actually positive for FIV. Most cats are not tested before they are adopted and most owners have no reason to suspect their cat has this virus. Many, many healthy cats have happy, full lives without anyone knowing they have the virus.

Our FIV+ Cats
At Lange Foundation’s Halfway Home Kennel, we have a spacious area dedicated entirely to our FIV+ cats. They receive the same loving care we give every one of our animals. Come and meet some of our FIV positive cats. All are loving, wonderful, and silly little felines waiting for you take them home!
If you are interested in adopting or fostering one of our FIV+ cats, please let us know! We would love to chat and help you make the right decision.
Tom is a 5 year old big orange fluffy cat! He was a stray taken in at East Valley Animal Shelter. When we rescued him we discovered that he was FIV+. Most people don’t realize that he can live a long healthy life as long as he is taken well care of. He would be a great addition to any family. He meows at everyone that passes by hoping that someone will choose him.
Leo loves people and other cats, but not dogs. He was recued from East Valley and has a slight limp in his left front paw. We had orthopedic surgeons and neurologists examine the arm and not find anything wrong or worth operating on. He does fine and doesn’t mind a limp at all. He is immediately in your lap once you go into the room he is housed in. He is such a sweet boy!
Spicey was rescued as a kitten. She is FIV+ which is why she has been at the kennel for so many years. Spicey really does love attention. She really does want to be loved. It just takes a gentle touch and a bit of patience. This gorgeous, dilute calico gal looks at you with those big eyes, and the melting begins! True, she may never be a lap cat, but she will give lots of love just the same.
Bill is a sweet loving boy. He was born in 2002. He really just wants to be loved and pet.
