At this time, our Island animal shelter remains open for official business and by appointment only.

Anyone looking for a dog? Bear needs home. Bear is a seven-year-old, Australian Shephard/Chow Chow mix. He’s neutered, up-to-date on all his shots and ready to go. This is a really nice dog, about 65 pounds in size, who will be a great family pet. He may have some issues with other dogs so he would need to meet a prospective housemate or be an only dog. Contact the shelter to schedule an appointment.

Bug and her Mom, Mabel, are looking for forever homes. Bug is an eight-month-old, silver tabby, Manx kitten who the staff describes as a 12! She is a real doll and as loving as can be. A real lap cat, she just crawls up and snuggles in. Mabel is a silver/gray and white, tabby with a super sweet personality. This is another very affectionate cat. She’s only about a year or two old so still a playful youngster.

Our other female looking for a home is Tux. She’s six years of age with a beautiful, silky long coat. And her markings are tuxedo, of course. She’s recently been shaved due to being matted, but it will definitely grow back. This girl has really started coming out of her shell and couldn’t be sweeter or more affectionate.

Also available for adoption are Pee Wee, a six-year-old, tabby and white Manx, who is very sweet and gentle. This is a sweet boy who loves attention, but he likes to greet you with a hiss.

Jack is a twelve-years-old, orange male who needs a home ASAP! He’s still very depressed and needs a home to feel secure again.

We have a special needs cat looking for a home as an only cat. Summer is a nine-year-old, calico ragdoll mix with blue eyes who is very beautiful and sweet as can be. This girl has a true ragdoll personality, adores attention and loves to play. She suffers from a respiratory issue that has been difficult to treat. Her test results were negative for FIP and she is now on medications that should help her out. The adoption fee will be waived for anyone who has it in their heart to give her a home.

Our other tabby cat looking for a home is Holly, who has been with us for three years now.

Who wants a Guinea pig(s)? We have two adorable sisters, about seven weeks old, who both need homes. One of the two girls is brown and white with adorable white eyebrows and a white blaze, while the other is a white and black. Volunteers have been handling these babies to be sure they adore people when they go to their new homes.

If anyone would like to make some donations from our wish-list we are in need of laundry detergent, bleach, air fresheners, paper towels, and toilet paper.

We’d like to thank everyone for their donations of used towels and such, but request that you refrain from making donations of this type at this time.

If anyone is in need of cat or dog food, we have plenty and are happy to share.
