Kelly McGettigan and Matt Combs were looking for another cat. It was Cassie's story, a big Phillies fan that stuck with them.

Kelly McGettigan and Matt Combs were looking for another cat. It was Cassie's story, a big Phillies fan that stuck with them.

They adopted Cassie in January of this year.

Kelly says, "She was left outside of an animal hospital in a carrier. I just wanted to make sure she had a home."

So they gave her just that.

"She's the happiest cat I have ever met. She's always happy," said Kelly.

As you can tell from her outfit, she's quite the Phillies fan.

"We told her that she could have a treat after every time the Phillies won, so we didn't think we would be giving her treats that often," said Kelly.

"In the last couple of games, she has really been loving it,' said Matt.

Save the Animals Adoption Center was founded in 1993 and is housed in the Windcrest Animal Hospital in Wilmington, Delaware.

Angela Taylor is the Director at Save the Animals Adoption Center.

"We take in mainly cats sometimes. We do dogs as well, but we primarily stick with the kitties," said Angela.

There are other animals waiting to be adopted, such as Huey.

Angela says, "He would be good in a home that has lots of space for him to run and play. He would really do well with another cat too, an older cat to sort of entertain him."

Brothers Arrows and Valentino arrived at the rescue on Valentine's Day.

"They don't necessarily have to go to the home together, although they would love to, they get along great with cats. They love to play, and they love to snuggle, and they're really sweet boys," said Angela.

Toby is 9-years-old, and would enjoy a quiet home.

Angela said, "He's a really sweet boy. He lived with other cats so gets along well with other cats. An older couple or someone without kids or grown kids would probably be best for him."

April is 5-years-old, and needs to take daily medication.

"She has FIV, so she has some special needs. But she's been living a very healthy life." said Angela.

And Babe is a 7-9-month-old kitten found as a stray with her sister in Wilmington.

Babe has been vaccinated, spade, and she also uses a litter box.

If you're interested in Babe or any of the animals you've met today you can visit the Save the Animals Adoption Center website.
