Our cat spaces are still overflowing! We’d like you to meet just a few of the wonderful cats and kittens who are waiting for a home.


Melody’s name is very fitting since she often sings beautiful melodies while being petted. She is a very sweet girl, approximately 2 years old, who enjoys attention and having her bum scratched. She likes to explore and will often come out of her cage while we are cleaning and go over and underneath everything, smelling all the new smells she can find. She doesn’t care for the company of other cats (and we assume she wouldn’t appreciate a dog, either) so she will need to be your only pet.

Slim Jim

Slim Jim is a handsome boy who does fine with other cats. He is living with many in our cageless community room right now. He’s a great boy who will follow you around. Who could resist that face? Slim Jim is an adult, we aren’t sure of age but he will add a lot of personality and love to your home.


Qetsiyah – is a beautiful 4-month-old kitten, just one of the many kittens we have who are available now or in the very near future. Qetsiyah is ready to go home now and settle into a happy life. You’ll have a hard time not staring at this cute face all day.

Because the shelter has so many cats right now, we are offering $50 off the adoption fee of any adult cat (1-8 years old), through September 15. Visit Melody, Slim Jim, Qetsiyah, and our other cats during our open hours or by appointment. Fill out our application at www.responsiblepetcare.org/cats to get preapproved.
