Meet The Kitties
This means that each kitty can run around, relax, play and be social with the other cats inside. Each shelter window opens up to an enclosed caged in area that allows them to enjoy the sunshine and breath in nice fresh air. They even have a patio to watch the birdies fly by and chipmunks run around. This shelter is dedicated to Honey, a 12 week old orange tabby kitten who, despite Anna's attempts to bottle feed and care for, tragically died on June 6, 1999.
When you adopt from us it will allow us to take in another homeless cat or take in another kitty from another shelter that is not handling being in a cage very well. You help change the life of ultimately 2 cats for every 1 cat that you adopt from us.
We specialize in finding forever homes for young adults and older cats. The largest portion of calls we receive from people looking to as they put it "get rid of the cat" – are for cats over the age of 7. Most are because their owners are going into a nursing home or simply because they have gotten another pet and have decided they simply don't want their current cat anymore. We also find that black and black/white cats are the least likely to find homes because there are such high numbers of that color.
Every spring thousands of unwanted kittens are born. Often they suffer from disease, are eaten by predators, or die from the cold. Spay/neuter prevents this suffering. Well-meaning people often feed a hungry stray cat, but can become overrun with cats in no time. A female cat can go into heat at 4 - 6 months of age and can have up to 3 litters per year.
