Please Adopt Us

The list of people who want to adopt a kitten grows longer every day, and while we will try to accommodate everyone who wants a kitten, it makes us sad that we have several beautiful adult cats who are waiting for adoption too. It also makes us hope that the message about the importance of spaying or neutering may be reaching people who would otherwise be dropping off litters of unwanted kittens to us. If you want to adopt a cat, please stop by the shelter or call us.

Our featured cat this week is Deacon, who has been featured before and is still with us, although we cannot imagine why no one has adopted him. He is a beautiful, loving, friendly ginger tiger who loves people and gets along well with the other cats and loves to sit in a comfortable lap in our rocking chair. He is most unusual looking and looks almost like a real tiger. Please come see him.

Our other great cats are: Barley, who has the sweetest face and is mostly white with tortoiseshell markings; Butter and Chloe, two beautiful tortoiseshells; Ceilia, our shelter mascot who would just love to be in a real home with a soft lap or chair to cuddle up in; Mango, our newest cat, another ginger tiger, sweet and still a bit shy; Panchie, whose owner just died, he is gray and white and only two years old, too young to be an orphan.

Our two dogs include Ziggy, a big, beautiful, well-trained Labrador-husky cross who would love to be adopted by someone with the time and energy to take him for long walks (he is two years old, has a beautiful tan coat, knows his commands, loves to ride in the car and even does tricks). And then there is Chauncy, our remaining chihuahua who has captured the hearts of all at the shelter and loves to sit in Lisa’s lap and give her kisses. Chauncy is brown and white, adorable and would make a wonderful addition to the home of any chihuahua lover. Her buddy Oscar was adopted last week and Chauncy misses him.

In addition to the cats and dogs, we have two little guinea pigs, Hamlet and Zoey, both about eight months old.
