1/2 Price PET" Adoptions
You probably know by now that when an animal has been at the shelter for 1 year, we consider them a "free" adoption. Well, our pets (dogs and cats) usually don't stay at the shelter for that long, but it seems so unfair to keep them any longer than we have to. So, it has been decided that we will now have 1/2 Price PET Adoptions for those pets that have been at the shelter 6 months or longer. And, we have been having great success with this program. Our available pets change monthly, so keep posted, just in case your new best friend might show up on this page!
Pilgrim is the nicest cat, loves to be petted and talked to, just not much on being picked up - a lot of cats are like that - just go with it! Pilgrim is 3 years old and neutered, loves people and loves to rub around your ankles. We think if you are sitting watqching tv, he'll be right ther on your lap, but it's at his own choosing and that's okay. Most of us would prefer a little independence in our cats. So, if you think Pilgrim might be a cat you would like to meet and possibly take home, come meet him. He came to the shelter on November 12, now making him available at a 1/2 price adoption fee.
Veronica is a 2 year old, spayed Boxer mix, loves people and loves to be with them. She has a lot of energy and her person was just unable to keep up with her. Veronica came to the shelter on November 9, so she is a 1/2 price adoption fee now, but we know that once you get her home and work with her a little bit, all that excitement will calm right down and she will be the best dog ever. She is good on a leash, very smart, housebroken and loves people. She likes some dogs, so it would be best to do a "meet and greet" if you already have a dog. Veronica will make someone the perfect side-by-side companion and she's more than ready!
Darrell came to the shelter on November 12, the busiest boy ever! His person took on a puppy and realized that wasn't such a good idea, being a little older. Darrell is very smart, good on a leash (once all the excitement is over) and housebroken. He's only 1-1/2 years old and neutered, a Terrier mix. Darrell just needs a person with as much energy as he has and that knows how to train him and calm him down. He loves people and gets along with most dogs. Darrell will make someone the perfect ride in your truck partner, fishing buddy or you name it, he's a winner! Darrell is available at a 1/2 price adoption fee - just needs the right person to come meet him!
Tiana is a beautiful, sleek, shiny black cag with huge gold eyes. She is 6 years old and spayed. Tiana's person had to move and couldn't take her with. She is one of our cats with just a little "cattitude", very independent and likes things her way, but that also makes her a no-trouble-at-all cat - not needy like some :) Tiana came to the shelter on December 10, so she is now available at a 1/2 price adoption fee. Tiana tends to like men better than women, so if you are a guy needing a new girlfriend/bestfriend - she just make be purrfect for you :) Come meet Tiana and see if you don't agree!
Silver Paws is the most gorgeous longhair silver/blu cat with huge gold eyes. He is 4 years old and neutered. Silver Paws can be a little unpredictable but we think that's just because he is in the shelter atmosphere. He loves to be brushed and petted - but when he's had enough he will definitely let you know. Silver Paws is a pretty big cat - weighing about 16 lbs. He entered the shelter on December 14 because his family was going to be traveling for an extended time and unable to take him along. We think he's still a little miffed about that! We would love to see Silver Paws find his furrever home. All he needs is a patient person that doesn't want a cat smothering you all the time. You let him do his thing and he will let you do yours! Purrfect!
Natasha is a really pretty Torbie cat - you know Tortoiseshell colors with Tabby stripes. She is 2 years old and spayed. Natasha loves to be petted just not picked up, and that's okay, we know a lot of cats like that. She's not a needy cat, nor is she a showy cat. She just likes her own space and doesn't need to get into your space. She's what we would truly call a no-trouble-at-all cat! She has been with us since December 8. Her person became unable to care for her. Natasha would make someone the purrfect best friend because she doesn't have "cattitude", she just has a quiet, gentle personality and would love to meet you and go home with you today. She might hide under the bed for a few days, but she will eventually come out to visit :)
Zelena and Anton (below) came from the same home with a few other friends. She is 5 years old and spayed, a very sweet cat, not a needy cat at all. We think sometimes when cats aren't real "showy" like Zelena, that's why they are usually with us a little longer than others. Zelena loves people and loves to be petted. She would love to be your lap cat for napping or just watching t.v. She's very quiet and well mannered and very sweet. She would be the purrfect companion for an elderly couple that are quite settled in and she would settle right in, too! She has been with us since January 3.
Anton and Zelena (above) came from the same home, joining us on January 3. He is about 6 years old and neutered. His person passed and no family to care for him and several of his friends. Anton was very standoffish at first, but now he is everybody's best friend and can't wait to be petted and "fed" :) He weight 28 lbs. when he first came to us - now he is at 22 lbs. That's still a little heavy, but he seems to be okay with it :) Anton is another no-trouble-at-all cat, but he does like company and loves to be petted.
Lana is a beautiful Tortoiseshell cat, 2 years old and spayed. She was a bit feral when she came to the shelter with her kittens, but has calmed down a bunch. We can actually pet her now and she likes it :) Lana arrived on January 4, so she has been with us just over 6 months now and the first 2 were hard for her, but she's all better. She would make someone the purrfect in/out cat in time because she does have outside experience. Once she knows her surroundings, she will be the best friend you've ever had!
FuManChu came to the shelter on January 18, his person had to move and he couldn't go along. He is a very nice cat, just a cat that doesn't need all that fancy attention. An occassional pet on the top of the head is just fine with him. He likes to just lay and watch what goes on around him. He likes to watch the kittens playing but sees no need to participate. FuManChu is a very handsome boy, almost all white with a gray tail and a few gray spots on his head and of course his fumanchu :) He is the purrfect cat for the person that just likes a "little" company :)
