Adoption Corner!
As I post this today, Queenie
has been in our shelter for 911 days! She actually came from another shelter where she stayed prior! Our "Queen" is 5 years old, very playful & well trained. She needs to have a throne of her own! If you have an active lifestyle or could use a cuddle, Queenie could be your sidekick! She knows commands such as sit, down, stay, place, drop and more!

Please consider fostering to adopt, or just come meet her to see if she would make a good fit!  Don't let 1000 days happen!

Meet Noah, the purrfect male cat for the right family. Twice the forever families that were thought to be perfect for Noah turned out to be less than perfect. That's it. The third time will be the charm! Noah is a sweet soul and likes to lounge in the sun. He gets along well with other cats and will just purr all day. He's not much of a lap cat but he will sit near you and snuggle. Noah is about 5 1/2 years old.
