Collette & Chaz (sorry-photo not available)


At 7 weeks & 1 3/4 lbs. we still need a little more time before it is safe for us to undergo our spay/neuter surgery. Whats the big hold up? We just wanna play and explore. Give us two weeks in your house and help us fatten up!

Gila, Alligator & Crocodile

Don`t be scared by our ferocious names-we don`t bite. But we are stuck here until we gain enough weight to receive sterilization surgery. Let us out to play at your house so we have a better chance to receive proper socialization than if we were to be stuck here.

Mena (Adoption Ambassador alert)!

Mena is a conflicted kitty here in the shelter and is having a hard time when removed from the cage to meet with potential adopters. Behavior staff are sure she will do well when in a home environment-away from the commotion and over stimulation of the public adoption room. Experienced cat foster required as patience in handling will be paramount as she will need some time to adjust to her new surrounding before a lot of contact should occur. Mena communicates well so fosters that understand the cues she will display should do well with this very special assignment.

Not an Adoption Ambassador? that`s okay so long as you have the patience and understanding of kitty language & lore an out of shelter adoption will GREATLY benefit little Mena as this foster assignment for all intents and purposes should be considered a true rescue attempt.

Interested in helping little Mena? contact and we`ll put together a plan to make this happen!











Introducing Selah! A very pretty little lady, Selah came to the shelter when her former owner could no longer care for her. Selah just arrived in the adoption room and is still getting acclimated to the busy shelter environment — but she has lots of personality and will no doubt be a lot of fun to have around! She’s curious, talkative and loves tasty treats.We’re hoping to recruit a foster to bring Selah home for the Adoption Ambassador program. Swing by the shelter to meet her in person and contact us if you’d like to bring her home for this unique foster project.



The following foster animals have been claimed and/or already placed in foster care.

Freda & Diego

Dottie is giving us run of the house (after we get used to her bathroom and learn to recognize our potty pan)!


Shruti (new foster) is making sure I am going for regular walks to assist in healing my hip (I`ve recently had hip surgery).


Gabrielle is helping me to gain a little more weight by allowing me room to explore & play! My veterinarian tells me I could stand to gain some.

Ducky (thanks Peter-new foster!)

Peter is keeping a close eye to see if I become symptomatic again. Until then I`ll have fun in his specially designed “Cat Town” (kitten play area constructed with cardboard boxes) with a lot of nooks to explore and toys to find!

Rin (thanks Tamra!)

Under observation in an in-house (that`s in shelter to us animal welfare folk) foster care situation. I can now tell first hand how much Tamra loves all of the various critters under her care.

Top Cat, Tiger, Gigi, Halloween (thanks Ruth!)

We got sick while awaiting placement but experienced Foster Ruth knows just what to do to carry us through!

Yuki (thanks Karen!)

I`ve got a touch of eye discharge but my little immune system seems to be keeping it in check so far. Karen knows to tell the doctors if my symptoms worsen!

Donner (thanks Cheryl!)

Yayy! I get to have a play date with Cheryl!

Lupin (thanks Jonathan!)

Jonathan is getting everything ready in his household to keep me happy while I finish up my treatment!

Rudolph (thanks Carli!)

Carli is helping me to grow and keeping a close eye on me to make sure I`m gaining weight.

Leonardo, Bill & Sampson (thanks Melanie!)

Melanie is ensuring we grow in a behaviorally beneficial environment while keeping up with our medication schedule!

Foxtrot (thanks Wendy!)

Wendy will be helping me to eat and grow and plans to show me a fun time!

Sandy (thanks Kristina!)

Kristina is giving me room to play and grow at home (until I reach target age/weight)!

Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Madagascar (thanks Lindsey-new foster!)

Lindsey (a new foster) is helping with maternal support, age & weight gain.

Tuna (thanks Angela!)

A former “Colony Cat” whom we assume has been at one time part of a TNR (that`s trap/neuter & release to us animal welfare folk) group. Unfortunately the colony manager seems to be unreachable and Tuna`s colony dispersed. Tuna bears the eartip to prove this as credibility. These colony cats are usually feral in temperament but miraculously Tuna has turned out to be a real sweetheart! Tuna needs foster time out of our shelter and limit her activity to ensure a partially healed leg fracture. No medications necessary. Just provide a quiet and easy going environment and time should take care of the rest. 4-6 week stay required.
