Foster Homes

Can't adopt but still want to help?  Fostering is a great opportunity to temporarily care for a pet. Take a cat or kitten home with you to give them some extra attention.

Community events, fundraisers, craft fairs, and offsite adoptions are just some of the events we take part of in order to maintain our ability to provide the best care for our adoptable pets.

None of our events would be successful without our volunteers!

Cat Whisperers

Cats come into the Shelter at all ages. Little ones, 6-8 weeks, can easily be socialized with a bit of cuddling from people. As the kittens approach 12 weeks that socializing becomes more difficult.

Volunteers who stop by the Shelter and spend time petting and playing with the kitties are extremely important.
