One of the many unfortunate consequences of living outdoors is the risk of contracting Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) as cats fight for food and territory. A small number of cats in our shelter have this disease but it is not a kiss of death, nor does it necessarily require these animals to be only-cats. Please learn about this disease and see the photos of our FIV cats that would dearly love (and deserve) a home of their own.


Say the words “feral cat” and most people imagine a fierce, aggressive animal. In truth, most are frightened. But they are the survivors. Many have survived abandonment, or being lost. Some are the children of lost or abandoned cats so they have never known a warm, safe, loving home. With love and gentle patience, many can overcome their unlucky past. Learn more about feral cats and see some of our cats that are slowly but bravely learning to trust – some of them for the very first time.

Early Spay / Neuter

Pet overpopulation is a significant problem and one that can easily be addressed by the simple act of having your pets spayed or neutered. Learn more about it.

Fun and Games for your cat

Can indoor living be stimulating enough for the most curious, active cat? Yes.

Finding Lost Pets

When your pet is lost, time is of the essence. The sooner the process begins, the better your chances are of getting the animal back.

Planning for your pets

While none of us likes to think about the end of our life, responsible pet owners have to plan for the care of their animals should they become ill or incapable of caring for their pets.
