Featured Pets


This handsome guy is Griffin, a 3-4 year old, brown tiger, neutered male, who came in as a stray. He has been a little unsure here upon his arrival with all the new surroundings. When you give him some pets and he gets comfortable, he really shows you his true colors. Come spend some time with him!

Ms. Kitty

This gorgeous girl is Ms. Kitty, a 6 year old, gray and white, spayed female, who was surrendered by her owner. She is super sweet, and her past owner said she is very cuddly. She needs to be the only cat in a home, and would do best in a calm atmosphere. She is good with older kids.


This handsome guy is Peanut, a 5 year old, orange and white, neutered male, who was surrendered by his owner. He has been a little bit unsure here since he has arrived, but has enjoyed all of the gentle pets he received. He is a very sweet boy, and just needs some extra time to warm up!
