Featured Cat: Benji
Happy Birthday to me! Happy Birthday to me! I am going to be one years old on August 23, 2021. Please help celebrate my birthday with a home of my own. I don't like other cats so please don't ask me to share you with another feline. However I do like lots of action. I like food, playtime, teens, kids, and even dogs in that order! I am FIV+ which just means I may have a suppressed immune system later in life but if kept indoors (as all cats should be) then I will enjoy a normal life without any worries at all. I was born with a mild Pectus Excavatum which is a congenital defect resulting in a chest wall deformity. My hollow breast is mild and will not cause me any harm. I want to be your center of attention. I have a reduced birthday fee. Please come by to sing my birthday song! You can fill out an application here.

Please help to support our kittens
We are taking care of over 60 kittens this season and need your help! We are looking for donations of Fancy Feast canned wet kitten food. Please follow this link for easy order from our Amazon wishlist. Thank you!


Until we can visit the shelter in person again, we'll be hosting a virtual kitten shower. With the warm weather we had this winter, kitten season is here earlier and stronger than ever. Our kittens are in desperate need of wet food. Any help is appreciated!

Please consider something from our registry, gift cards or donate to the shelter.
