Adopting a Senior Pet can be quite rewarding.  We often have pets that are over 7 years, which is  considered Senior for dogs and 8 years is considered Senior for cats.  We have found that these pets still have a lot of life in them and they are so appreciative to have a new home.  You will be so happy if you adopt a Senior, you don't have to put up with that puppy or kitten rambunctiousness!  Senior pets are secure with themselves and are happy just to be with you and be a part of your family. 

 KitKat is a pretty little cat, we think about 8 years old and spayed.  She loves people and loves to be with them, but is still a little shy, being new to the shelter.  Her person had to move to the nursing home, so KitKat came to the "shelter nursing home" :)  She's a sweet girl that would love to meet you and go home with you today - furever.  We think she has a little Abyssinian in her background with that "ticked" coat.

So, please check out our seniors and see if you might give one of them a chance at a good life with your family.  Their time is precious and they will love you for sharing that time with them.


From time to time we take in an animal that has "Special Needs" and we will post that animal here.  Always that pet becomes very "special" to us here at the shelter and we can assure you that pet will also become very "special" to you, if you decide to adopt.  We hope that when we post that pet on this page, you will consider giving that pet a chance.

 Char isn't what you would really call "special needs", she has a place on her neck that is like a cyst and needs to be drained occasionally.  She is the sweetest cat and it doesn't seem to bother her, she just needs a person that can address the issue and meet with the vet to see what is the best route to take with her.  She loves everybody and loves to be held and petted.  Char is 1 year old and spayed.  She will make someone the purrfect best friend, she just needs a little TLC.
