Shelter Update – Cats

Shelter Update – Cats

We have received the “all clear” from our Staff Veterinarian. Our Cat Adoption Room is now open. Potential adopters are welcome to stop in our Cat Adoption Room anytime during open business hours.  Please note in order to help find you the best match, we are no longer doing adoptions or meet and greets after 4 pm (6 pm on Wednesdays). Thank you for understanding.

Unfortunately because of the high number of cats currently at our shelter, we continue to be unable to accept cats as strays or surrenders at this time. Please reach out to other local shelters and rescues. We sincerely apologize for this temporary inconvenience.
