Kittenpalooza for website white space

We’re having a Kittenpalooza! This Saturday and Sunday, November 8th & 9th, several of our foster kittens will be at the shelter to find new homes! To help them get to their new homes a little quicker, we have reduced their adoption fees to $35, plus a $40 refundable spay/neuter deposit.

There will be tons of cute faces to see and we hope all of our kittens find their new homes this weekend! Prefer an adult cat? Our adult cats are also partially sponsored during our “Birthday Bash”, so all cats 6 months and older have an adoption fee of just $42 (reg. $109). We hope to see you this weekend and would love to send you home with the purrfect cat!

Birthday Bash This Friday, Saturday & Sunday

Our very special supporter, Melanie Dinham, is celebrating her birthday on Nov. 7th.  Her birthday wish is that all the adult cats at the shelter will soon find loving homes.  And so, in honor of her birthday, she and her husband Jason are sponsoring the adoption fees for adult cats this Friday, Saturday & Sunday.

Thank you, Melanie!  We all wish you the happiest of birthdays!!
