We are thrilled to report that tabby and white Willie has found the perfect home with all the affection he could wish for. What great news.

Any Persian cat lovers out there? The pet of the week is Snort, and we’re surprised that she’s still here. Snort, who is aptly named, is a 13-year old, tri-color (calico) Persian with eyes of different colors. She is very sweet, gentle and affectionate and still enjoys playtime. She has lived with both dogs and cats but would probably be happiest as an only pet. This girl is up to date on everything and ready to go.

Our other resident is Alice, a two-year old, torbi and white cat who is a really loving yet funny girl who is extremely playful. She adores people and enjoys a comfy lap to sit in, but she would do best with an experienced cat owner since she believes she’s the one in charge.

The Animal Shelter of Martha’s Vineyard is here for our community. We’re always available and our door is always open should your adoption not be a perfect fit. Also, if anyone is in need of cat food, dog food, or a crate, we have plenty and are happy to share. The Island Food Pantry also has pet food for those in need. Just give us a call during regular shelter hours.

The shelter phone number is 508-627-8662.
