Dogs for Adoption

We currently have no dogs available for adoption, please check back!

Cats for Adoption

Gabrielblackie2 is a big hunk of a cat. He is a bit shy to start and will take some time to warm up to his new surroundings but will be quite a nice addition to a household. He would prefer a home on a farm or somewhere he can have safe outdoor access.

Have rats?Feralsiamese1 Will work for food! We currently have two pairs of young adult feral cats looking for working homes. They are considered un-adoptable due to their fearful nature but make the best ratters! They come spayed/neutered and vaccinated. They do need to be fed and have a barn or shop for shelter and will need to be contained in a secure area for the first few weeks. Adoption fee is by donation to our program to help end the over population of homeless cats. Please consider providing a home for a pair of these beautiful wild souls, with Victoria's worst year for rats you wont regret it!
