Stop the cycle!  Spay or Neuter your pets!


The last three years have been the busiest kitten seasons we've seen!  Every rescue is completely overrun with cats & kittens and ours is no exception!

Kittens can breed before they're 6 months old!! Kittens born in the spring are already old enough to breed. If you have an unaltered pet, please spay or neuter. There are low-cost options available to EVERYONE! "I can't afford it" is no excuse! You can’t afford not to!

Altered kittens/cats make better companions. Altered kittens/cats are less likely to get many types of cancer. Having your animals altered reduces the number of kittens and cats that ultimately end up in shelters (and are often euthanized)!!

Please spay or neuter your pets! Encourage friends and family to spay and neuter! Let's do our part to help end over-population!

Five Reasons You Should
Adopt TWO Kittens

(instead of just one):Yvonne&Yvette

1.  One kitten can become lonely and bored.

2.  Two kittens will keep each other busy instead of bugging you.

3.  Having two kittens can be very entertaining.

4.  You'll have fewer behavior issues with two kittens.

5.  You'll save TWO lives instead of one.
