Cats for Adoption

river1River is a big, handsome, young, neutered male DSH grey fellow. He is friendly and playful and approximately 4 years old.

blossom1Blossom is a beautiful long haired grey tabby spayed female. She would be a great apartment cat as she is calm and quiet. She is approximately 10 years old.

apple1Apple is a lovely, chubby, spayed female tabby looking for her forever home. She is approximately 7 years old and would prefer a home without other cats.

Barn Cats!Barn Cat1 We currently have three barn cats available for farm properties. These cats come spayed/neutered and vaccinated. They are wild cats so keep their distance from people but do make the best ratters for farm properties. If interested please contact the shelter. Adoption fee is by donation.

Other Animals for Adoption
