Hi, I’m JADE, a lovely 1-year-old little black kitty. I appreciate cheek and chin scratch, and I give some rather impressive head butts. I am an adorable, personable kitty. Your house is not a home until you have a little black kitty named JADE to call your own. Please adopt me today!

  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hi, I’m KITTEN #3, a 10-week old shorthair brown tabby, and tortie female kitten. I am a little perpetual motion machine. My littermates and I have numbers rather than names because we want our new family to find our purr-fect name. I know I will steal your heart and keep you constantly entertained. Because I am an energetic kitten that needs plenty of play time, won’t you consider taking advantage of the 2 fur 1 adoption special and take me home with one of my siblings? You get two amazing little kittens for the price of one. Your house is not a home until you hear the pitter patter of little kitten feet!

Hi, I’m DAX, a bunny-soft 5-year-old white and brown tabby boy that has the unusual distinction of 4 polydactyl feet. Yes, I have extra toes on all four of my feet! I can be shy at times, but wait until you see me fold my lovely white front paws in while I raise my head for scratches, all the time purring gently. My uniqueness is a package deal, so please consider adopting me today. Sailors thought many-toed cats were good luck. What about you?

  • Domestic Short Hair

Hi, I’m MINI, a sweet and cuddly 8-year-old fella. My previous owner, dearly, loved me, but after showing signs of stress with very young children in the home, I was brought to the shelter to find a new home. I am happy to get attention from anyone and everyone. I am a true love bug! I would do best in a home with older children who respectful of kitties like me. If I sound like your new best friend, please come adopt me today and help me find my happiness again.

I am FIV positive (feline immunodeficiency virus), which means I can live a normal, full life with a few simple adjustments like being indoors only. I couldn’t be a bigger love bug or a more relaxed kitty. If you are looking for your new best friend, please consider adopting me today. Bring a little ginger sweetness into your home tonight.

  • Domestic Short Hair

Hi, I’m INDY, a sweet and spunky 11-month-old white and brown tabby girl. My previous owner didn’t like when I got up early in the morning, insisting in a somewhat anxious tone to go outside. So, I was brought to the shelter to find a new home. When you hold me, you will realize that I am not fat but just a big girl. I enjoy attention and love treats. If I don’t say so myself, I am a loving, friendly, gorgeous kitty. Will you help me find my happiness again and adopt me today?

Hey there! I’m DUBLIN, a 6 year old black and white kitty. I have been living on the streets for some time with no family to call my own.

 . GARBO .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hello. I'm GARBO, an independent two year old girl who is looking for a new home. I used to be aloof and shy around humans and other cats, but lately I'm much more comfortable, and my playful, friendly side is emerging. When you are giving me those pats and scritches I so enjoy, please watch my body language because I sometimes get overwhelmed and just need time to myself. A patient, cat-savvy person who will give me plenty of time to settle safely into my new home, will find that I'm a delightful companion.

 . CAPTAIN .
 . CAPTAIN .
  • Domestic Medium Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
Ahoy Matey! CAPTAIN here. I’m a rather handsome 2-year-old long haired ginger kitty. I am FIV positive (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus), which means I can live a normal, full life with a few simple adjustments like being INDOORS ONLY. For more information about FIV, come to the shelter for a visit. My affectionate nature is winning hearts over so don’t wait too long to see if I would be the perfect match for you and your family. I purr like a lion; make incredible biscuits; and a true love bug. I have a few scabby areas behind my ears, but that is due to a flea allergy. I’ve been treated so all those pesky fleas have jumped ship and my skin is now healing. Please consider adopting me today. You'll have a friend for life, and I will be forever grateful.

 . COLETTE .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hi, I'm COLLETTE, a 9 year old engagingly social ginger and white shorthair who's a real charmer. I am long-limbed and lively. Maybe, I was a dancer in my former life. I do have a digestive problem where I tend to binge eat my food, so right now I only eat small amounts of dry cat food, several times a day. If you are looking for an affectionate cat with lots of heart who will make each day just a little brighter, I'm your girl! Please come adopt me today. A generous donor has prepaid my adoption fee.

 . RICHIE .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
RICHIE is a gorgeous gray-and-white eight-year-old boy who is silky-soft and wonderfully patterned. This awesome cat, who was returned for no fault of his own, is a super-friendly guy who loves petting, cuddling and shoulder time. He'll sit on your lap chatting with you if he likes the topic, or curl up next to you and go to sleep. Mainly he just wants to know you are there loving on him. Easy to do with this sweet guy! A generous donor has prepaid his adoption fee.

 . FINN .
 . FINN .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
FINN and PHANTOM are part of our BEST BUDDIES program, meaning they are a bonded pair who must be adopted together. These lovely, look-alike 8-month-old brothers were very skittish originally, and are still shy, but thanks to the cat-whispering work of some of our volunteers, they are much more social now. According to the woman who brought them in, FINN is very loving, but not a lap-sitter, whereas PHANTOM, who has one white whisker to distinguish him from his brother, once he gets over being skittish is a big lap-lover. Both boys love to play and both have been tolerant with young children. They had been outside cats, but loved the warmth and comfort of the home of the woman who brought them to us. These two need a calm home with patient people who will give them lots of quiet love.

 . SIMBA .
  • Domestic Long Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hi, I’m SIMBA, a handsome 10-year-old ginger boy. I’m a little uneasy as I get settled into shelter life. It’s hard to ignore me especially when I turn my beautiful eyes towards you, asking for attention. If my eyes don’t do the trick, I will call to you in a voice that could really use a little bit of WD-40. I can be a mighty lovely guy, but please watch my body language. Please don't pass me up because of my age. Provide me with a comfy bed and an occasional petting, and I will be the perfect companion for you. I'm a Fabulous Featured Feline, so my adoption fee is only $25.

 . PEPPER .
  • Domestic Long Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hi, I’m PEPPER, a beautiful plus size 11-year gal. My 20-pound body is quite round, haloed by about 3 to 4 inches of fluffy gray fur that shines when you brush me. I have incredibly long lovely whiskers that curve forward when I sniff something and long white furry tufts between my toes. My previous owner could not take me to California when she moved, so I was brought to the shelter to find a new home. I have not been around other animals or cats. I enjoy the attention, sweet nothings, brushing, and plenty of play time. I do have my limits and will walk away when I am done with you. If your heart is big enough for me, I’m the cat for you. Please come adopt me today. I'm a fabulous featured feline so my adoption fee is only $25.

Hello, I'm STELLONE, a 3 year old shorthair black kitty. I am not a tough guy movie star; I'm just a somewhat timid boy whose owner could no longer keep him. I am gentle - one of those softies who rolls over and presents his tummy when he knows he can trust you. If I you have the time it will take to make me feel safe in my new home, please come adopt me today. I would really like to be happy again.

Hi, I’m HANSEL, a large handsome 3-year-old black cat. My former owners couldn't keep me, so I was brought to the shelter to find a new home.

I am a friendly, sociable lover boy who enjoys chin and jaw scritch as well as sweet-talk. I even tolerate other cats. If you have a loving, secure home, won’t you consider adopting me today? I would love to find my happiness again.

 . NEKO .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
My name is NEKO, and I'm an 11-year-old girl who was surrendered to the shelter because the new children in my home were allergic to me. Right now I'm overwhelmed at this sudden change in my life, and am very timid. However I do like petting and sweet talk, and even though I have a quiet, sometimes solitary nature, I'm also a friendly kitty who will play gently with you once I feel safe. I would like to be in an indoor-only home without children or other animals. I am a Fabulous Featured Feline and you can adopt me for $25!

  • Domestic Long Hair

Hello, I'm MISS M, a regal, peaceful 10-year-old longhair gray kitty. My human passed away, and since the family couldn't keep me, I was brought to the shelter. I need a patient owner who will allow me plenty of time to adjust to a new home. I'm a quiet girl who doesn't ask for much, but a soft bed, some gentle companionship and a warm lap would be awfully nice. A GENEROUS DONOR WHO LOVES SENIOR KITTIES HAS PAID MY ADOPTION FEE!

 . KELLER .
  • Domestic Short Hair

KELLER here! I'm a one-year-old lean and sleek male tabby with stunningly beautiful stripes, and a great personality. Just for the record, I DON'T LIKE BEING PICKED UP, but I DO like chin scritches, petting and ear rubs. I'm a fastidious groomer, and an all-around good guy. I'm hoping to find a new home with humans who are looking for a companion cat who likes being with them, but is still fine doing his own thing. That's me!

Hi, I'm KIT CAT, a big friendly 7 year old shorthair ginger boy with a beauty mark on my head. I can be a bit skittish at times, but I am learning to trust people so things are looking brighter. I have a sweet heart and really like attention in the form of gentle pets and scritches, and I like to play,but please watch my body language, because sometimes I get overwhelmed and just need time to myself. I'll let you know, in a polite way, when I am done. A person experienced with cats like me would be preferable, giving me time to settle into my new home and feel comfortable. In my previous home I was indoors mainly, but I do like being outside in a safe, enclosed yard. If you have a loving home, please consider adopting me today. I know in time I will be a wonderful companion.
