Stop the cycle!  Spay or Neuter your pets!


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

Kittens can breed before they're 6 months old! 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 all 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.

Maya was found under a house and came to us with 4 babies.  She was quite feral and took her sweet time trusting us.  But now she enjoys having her face rubbed and her neck scratched. more about Maya
Randi (born 5/23/20) showed up on a front porch all by her lonesome. She has blossomed into a lovely, playful girl who also loves to sit and cuddle. She plays well with others, but has not been more about Randi
If you need for a queen bee for your hive, I just might be your girl.  I get along with other cats (who are chill/will let me take the lead) and prefer one-on-one attention. I love treats; the more about Violet
Margot is a petite little girl weighing in at just around 6 lbs - she is fully grown. Margot came to us as she was being bullied by the other kitties in the house. She is a little on the timid side more about Margot
Freya is a sweet girl who adores other kitties and is good with dogs. She is very sweet and once she gets to know you, she is a very sweet kitty. Copy and paste the link for an application! more about Freya
