Looking for love? Look no further than the shelter. Tiger Lily is a very affectionate tabby and white feline. All she wants is to be near you and get pets, and she also loves to gives kisses. She’s a tad on the plump side but still quite cute. Come meet her and fall in love.

Leo wants you.

Another sweetheart is Sweetie. She’s only two, a dilute calico with an orange mark on her face. She’s a good size girl and is really starting to warm up to the staff and volunteers. Good chance she’ll turn into a lap cat once she finds her permanent family.

Our last female feline is one-year-old tuxedo Mary. This girl is very pretty with her long legs and lean physique. She may be a bit contrary, as per her name, but if she takes to you she’ll be devoted forever. Why not come in and meet her to see if she could be your girl.

As for male cats, three great guys are residing here. Leo is a beautiful five-year-old white and dark orange cat with an orange heart-shaped birthmark on his face. He is a gentle soul looking for someone to shower with his love. He’s not a lap cat but does love to snuggle and get kissed on the head. Lefty is a large buff and white four or five year old who is an indoor/outdoor cat. He’s such a great guy that he hangs out with the staff and volunteers rather than in the cat room. He’d love for someone to come through the door and fall hard for him.

If you’re not into orange/buff and white then white and black Chaps could be your guy. He’s very mellow and would just like someone to hang out with. Could that be you? He likes to spend some of his time outdoors, but would rather be napping in a comfy spot.

And we have one more pet that may be more to your liking. Hamlette is the friendliest guinea pig to ever stay here. He’s under a year old, brown and white, and loves to be held and pet. He’s also a big fan of carrots. If you have a child begging for a guinea pig you couldn’t do better than Hamlette.
