Starting today July 8 we will be having an adoption special on all adult cats! Adoption fees will be $50 for any adult cat and half price for the second. All cats will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated and wormed. We have a wide variety of cats looking for homes… shy? busy? friendly? outgoing? playful? We have them so stop on by for this great event. It will run thru the end of July! Please share and let’s help these cats find their forever homes.
