We have no kittens available for adoption at this time. Please check back.
A note on kittens: PAL prefers to place kittens in pairs or in a home with another pet. Kittens require socialization, constant attention, and company. Adopting kittens in pairs offers the best possible environment for their social and emotional development. All applications for kittens and cats are considered on a case by case basis.
Joey came to the shelter from a multi-cat household. He is an incredibly handsome young man and a very nice cat once he feels comfortable with you. He can be shy when new people come into the shelter but he's affectionate and good natured with the shelter staff. Joey needs a home when someone will be patient and kind to him and we know he will be a loving companion in the right home. He is great with other felines but would do best in a home without young children. We think he would adjust to a "cat friendly" dog. Joey loves to play and his antics will make you smile. We hope that someone will give this sweet boy a chance - you won't be disappointed.
Tessa is one of the prettiest cats that has come to the shelter. She is a big cat with thick gorgeous fur and a face that should be featured on a cat calendar. She has been friendly with the shelter staff and likes attention, but Tessa is a true Diva when it comes to other cats and her purr-fect home would be as an only cat with no children. She appears to be fine with calm dogs. Since she has been a single cat, she has become very affectionate and will seek out attention thank you with a soft purr (the kind that puts you to sleep!). Tessa asks for what she wants and also likes her independence. She is truly a beautiful free spirit!
Boots is a big boy with handsome tiger markings. He is friendly and good natured. He is happy as long as he has a window to watch the happenings of the outside world. He is compatible with the other cats but we think he would be even happier if he was the only feline in the home. Boots needs a home with adults or older children as we have noticed that the noise and excitement of young children seem to scare him. Many visitors to the shelter have commented on his beautiful markings. He was abandoned by his former family so we are hoping that Boots leaves soon to his forever home.

We are hoping to find a loving home for this pretty petite girl. Her first two years of life have been difficult. She was very shy and afraid when she first came to the shelter. After a few weeks of being patient and kind to her; she has once again decided that people can be trusted. She is friendly and seeks attention. She purrs with happiness when you pet her. She probably would like to be the only feline in the home so she could get lots of love. It is great to see the transformation with Reba - it proves that kindness and patience can do wonders.
Cadee is a thin petite girl who was found as a stray. She is a recent addition to the shelter but she appears to be compatible with the other cats. Her absolute favorite time of the day is mealtime(especially that yummy canned food). She is friendly and good natured. With some good meals and a little TLC; Cadee will make some family a wonderful companion.
This cute and sweet young male cat is one of the newcomers to the shelter. His former owner had many personal problems so Jasper was relegated to the great outdoors. Jasper was scared outdoors so a kind neighbor came to the rescue. He was dirty and unkempt but he is already grooming himself and growing more handsome each day. Jasper loves his canned food and purrs with delight at mealtimes. He will make a wonderful companion if someone shows him some kindness and love.
Iris came to the shelter from a multi-cat home. There were many cats in this home and they were removed by law enforcement because they were not receiving adequate care. Iris is a "work in progress" because she was not handled a lot and is shy. We are slowly earning her trust with patience and understanding. Iris is very compatible with other cats.
We have a special spot in our hearts for this type of cat. There is nothing more rewarding than to gain a shy cat's trust with the ultimate gift of seeing that cat leave the shelter to a loving home.

Neutered Male Special Needs: FIV +
If only cats could talk, we are sure that Bruschi would have quite the story to share. This handsome boy was left on his own to scavenge in the dumpsters until a kind soul trapped him to get him neutered. Turns out, Bruschi wasn't feral at all, but instead, a big love bug who just needs a lap or bed to lay on. He is now in foster care and his "mom" says he's very low maintenance, doesn't play for long periods, and is not destructive at all. His favorite way to spend the day is napping with his chin on his foster mom's lap while she works on her laptop. He is quite happy being the one and only pet in a quiet home with no kids.
Bruschi is FIV positive. FIV+ cats like Bruschi who have no symptoms can live long and happy lives. We think he deserves a chance at a wonderful, loving home after such a rough start. For more information on Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), please click here.
Mr. Miyagi ain’t got nothin’ on me! I’m affectionately referred to by my friends as a “wand toy ninja master.” I will sit up, perfectly still on the cat tree as the wand toy is flashed by my face – with as little effort as possible I will punch a single paw out, snagging the toy with the greatest of ease! In fact, almost everything about me makes me the perfect ninja – I’m dressed in (almost all) black. I am petite and light on my feet. I am athletic quick, and agile. I move with silent speed that only the most practiced students of martial arts could know – you might see me on the floor, look away for a moment and the next thing you know I’m above your head on the cabinet!
Although I may seem a natural fit for a secret and stealthy lifestyle, there are few things about me that prevent me from being a true ninja warrior. The first is that I’m just too adorable to go unnoticed! Many people comment that just one look at my cute little face and it’s impossible to un-see me! The second is that I cannot help but leave my hiding spot when I’m talked to - hearing my name called with “kissy noises” along with the promise of petting are just too tempting for me to resist checking out! Lastly, although it’s hard for me to admit, I am just too darn sweet to be an assassin! I love petting, attention snuggling and playing with ribbon toys with people so much that I am often unable to contain my purring!
In true warrior style, when it comes to other cats, I do appreciate a mutual understanding with my feline friends. I really like to have feline playmates who can respect my need for play and my occasional need for space. That being said, I think I would enjoy having a compatible feline playmate in my new family, but I wouldn’t require one. At school, I am frequently hanging out with Skittles and in my previous home, I lived with Sofia – both of my pals are also available for adoption should you be looking for more than one cat. If you’re looking for a cool and confident ninja cat to steal your heart, you’ll be happy to know that I’m more than qualified for the mission!
Hey everyone – Opie, here. I hear you might be looking for a new friend and I just want to put myself in the running. I’m sure you can already tell that I’m pretty good-looking, if I do say so myself. I used to be a bit overweight, but thanks to my caretakers watching what I eat, I am now fit, trim and feeling great! Some people say that my big, round eyes, compact build and thick, shiny coat remind them of a seal – I like to humor them by doing a seal impression when I get brushed, rolling around gleefully to make sure you get me from every angle! I also love to explore, which you may not know about me when you first meet me. See, when I first moved in here, I was pretty shy. I wasn’t sure of things, and so I would try to scrunch myself into a corner whenever someone came to pick me up. I was always polite (because I’m a lover, not a fighter), but I just didn’t really feel safe enough to be myself. All that changed when I met Otis – he’s a funny little youngster that’s also looking for a home and man, is that guy hilarious! Once we started hanging out together, I just couldn’t hold it in any longer – I wanted to PLAY! I like to watch everything he’s doing and then get involved if it seems like fun. I admit, sometimes we’ll cause some trouble together and then I’ll just run and sit quietly, leaving him holding the bag! But he doesn’t mind – we’re pals, after all, and we always end our adventures with a long, peaceful nap. After Otis helped me come out of my shell, I realized that life is pretty entertaining. I try hard to be a good cat – I’m gentle and accepting of any new cat I meet (even if they’re kind of weird), I remind you if you’re late to give me breakfast (most important meal of the day), and I make sure any interesting toy you show me goes to good use! I also think I have found my voice in the world, and even though it’s kind of small and squeaky, I have a lot of great things to say – and now I’m hoping for a good friend who will be happy to listen!
Hey there! My name is Ike and I have to be honest – they told me to sell myself here, but that just isn’t my style. I consider myself an “average Joe” – I’m friendly, quiet, laid-back and I don’t ask for much. I’m happy with my daily meals, my good friends and a comfortable place to call my own (especially a soft bed or blanket that can be kneaded into just the right shape for a good nap). I don’t really love to play with toys, but I do love when my people make me a special treat to enjoy. I don’t love to be squished, but I happily greet my caretakers at the door every morning, looking for a good head-butt, a kindly stroke and a side-swipe rub against anything vertical. I’m just a big black cat, not petite or flashy-colored like my feline friends. But while I think all this makes me pretty normal, the people who love me seem to think it all makes me Someone Very Special. They say that I’m “content” and “humble” and “down to earth.” They say that my head-butts make them feel loved, and that I have something called a Gentle Soul. I don’t know about that, but I do have a secret - I have always had a quiet kind of life, and I have never lived with other pets. Now I live with other cats in quite a busy environment and sometimes, I get a little down on myself and maybe a little worried that I won’t find the perfect home. This makes me pull out some of my fur when I groom myself and I’m a little embarrassed about it, but whenever this happens, my friends tell me it’s no big deal! They say that that someday, the perfect person will come along who sees me for me. They will think that my thick black coat is handsome and distinguished, and that my body is just bigger because I have so much heart. They say that I will feel less like pulling out my fur when I am in a warm, safe home where I can feel confident about myself and my surroundings. And they say that My Person will be very lucky to have such a kind and unassuming friend to share life with, and that this person will let me snuggle and snooze for the rest of my days. I do hope that happens because, despite my low-key personality, I have an awful lot of life to live and love to share. If you have a vacant cozy spot in your home that you think should be full of cat, then I guess you should meet me and see if you are the Perfect Person that I have heard so much about!
Smidgen was trapped by a local animal officer because she had been living outdoors and she was shy and unapproachable. After being spayed, this pretty little female cat has decided to turn her life around. After showing her a few days of kindness, she has become a delightful cat who loves attention. Smidgen is friendly with people and the other cats at the shelter. She would love to spend the rest of her life in a nice warm home - no more outside life for her.
This very handsome male cat with incredible tiger markings came to the shelter from a local animal control officer. Watson is very friendly and "purr-sonable." We had great difficulty getting a picture of him because he came running to us wanting to be petted as soon as we came into the shelter. Being a stray, he loves mealtimes with canned food at the top of his favorites list. Watson is very nice feline who wants to be a beloved member of some lucky family.
I've been adopted with Smidgen!

Vibrant, sassy and with a few extra toes, I’m well aware that I’m the life of the party! Although I’m a younger girl, I have the confidence of character of a lady twice my age – I know what it is I want, when I want it and I’m certainly not shy to let you know! In my everyday life, I have a great balance between napping and playtime, and when I’m awake, playtime is certainly a preferred activity! I love toys, whether it be a toy filled with treats, some catnip, a stuffed toy or a wiggling ribbon, they’re all for me! My giant mitts do give me an advantage during playtime, and I have two signature moves – hold the wand high above my head and I’ll leap to great heights to grab it. Hold the wand low and I’ll roll over on to my back to catch and release it over and over!
When I’m out in the room I’m constantly bright-eyed, engaged and involved in the goings on! I pay very close attention to detail and I’m quick to involve myself when there is something happening. If there are birds outside the window playing by the feeder, I’m the first to jump on the cat tree to watch. If someone comes into the room, I’m right there to greet them. If another cat is receiving attention or playtime, I quickly move in to get my share! I certainly don’t want to regret missing out on something great, no matter how small! At school I am frequently hanging out with Nala and Sofia, and I think I could adjust quickly to life with another kitty in my new home. If you are looking to adopt a kitty with purrrrsonality plus, then I’m your girl!
Why hello there – I see that you are admiring my beauty! I am proud to say that I have truly been blessed with some gorgeous movie-star looks. With my sparkling blue eyes, exotic fluffy coat and endearing personality, many would say that I was born to be on the silver screen! As much as I’d like to be in the spotlight, I will say that I’m a little too shy for the hustle and bustle of the red carpet scene – lots of activity, sights and sounds can be overwhelming for a small-town girl like me. However, I don’t think I’d be opposed to hitting up a couple of low-key after parties, especially if there are yummy treats, grooming brushes and wand toys to indulge in! Outside of my career, I’m one of those actresses who really does appreciate having an easy-going, private life, spending my free time with my nearest and dearest. Many adoring fans are fascinated by my quiet and mysterious allure, but only my closest friends know just how playfully quirky and curious I really am!
During my time “out and about,” I tend to be a busy-body. I like to keep exploring, investigating and interacting with the scenery. I will admit that sometimes it takes me more time than others to build my confidence in new places, especially if there are a lot of new people - like any good actress, I have to really get to know the set and the crew before I can really act the part! When I’m with my feline cast mates, I can sometimes let my fame go to my head – I will occasionally try to boss them around, whether it be to tell them that I do want to play, that I don’t want to play, that I’d rather not be pounced on or that I’d like a toy to be just for me…you know how us stars can get sometimes! Overall, I really am fond of the company of other cats, but it does take me some time to adjust to sharing a trailer. In my previous home, I lived with Nala (who is also available for adoption) and we wouldn’t mind finding a home together again should someone have more than one role available! If you are seeking a stunning sweetheart to fill the role of “adored and adorable house pet,” then please contact my adoption agent today!
When I found out I was going to college, my first thought was “Hey, I’m only 10 months old, I must be pretty smart!” And then my second thought was “Oh, no, not homework!” But it turns out that, except for this essay about how great I am, I haven’t had to do any! Life really is one big party – most of my days are spent goofing off with my roommate Opie (who is also available for adoption). He and I just cruise around, looking for things to get into – turns out, you can make a toy out of any object and a game out of any experience. Wait, we should talk about toys – they are amazing! My favorites are the little fuzzy mice – I will collect every mouse I can find and then tell Opie he can’t have even one (the expression on his face is priceless, it gets him every time). I also love toys that dispense food – can you imagine…TOYS….that dispense FOOD! Talk about innovation! Anyway, after I’ve had all the fun I can manage, I might tumble around and wrestle for a while. Sometimes, this is a bit much for my more studious feline friends, but I just tell them “Hey, lighten up!” so if I get new buddies after college, I hope they’re ready for some silliness. After that, I enjoy curling up for a good sleep or getting a really great snuggle from my humans. They say I’m really “squishy” which I guess must be a good thing, because it makes them hold and cuddle me all the time. And then I start purring and purring right away, which could be kind of embarrassing if I had an ounce of self-consciousness. But I don’t, so it’s all good! All in all, if I’m being serious, I would say that I am a double-major, earning my degree in Happiness and Huggability. But who needs to be serious – life is all about fun and frolic, and I don’t intend to miss a moment of it!
Sunset is a big handsome boy who was the beloved companion of an older man. Unfortunately his former owner can no longer take care of Sunset and the difficult decision was made to find him a new home. Sunset is friendly and affectionate. We have no history that he has lived with other pets so he would probably do best as a single pet. He is declawed and very happy as an inside pet. We know it would make his former human "Dad" very happy if we can find a loving home for Sunset.
Penny's perfect human would be patient and know how to make a perfect paper ball for her to chase. She loves cat trees and looking out the window. She seems like she would love to be an indoor/outdoor cat, so a safe neighborhood would be best for her. Penny is a bit shy at the start but very playful and fun loving, she loves anything she can chase. She loves to lay in her cat bed and get petted and is contemplating being a lap cat, but on her terms. Penny does not like to be picked up or carried she prefers to move on her own, she is independent as cats can be, but lets you know when she's ready for lovin'. She is currently in a home with other cats and a large dog, after a short adjustment time, she has accepted them, and seems to fit in just fine. The perfect home for Penny would be one with no small children who may want to pick her up, and a patient family that will let her take her time adjusting. We know there is a perfect home for her, willing to accept her catittude and independence and soak up the love she's ready to give.
Adam came to the shelter in a rather unusual way. He was rescued from a tree in the front yard of the shelter by the Spencer Fire Department. It was a cold day and Adam was way up the tree and not coming down. It was supposed to snow that night so and the local animal control officer requested the help of the fire department and they responded (for which Adam is grateful). He is a handsome and friendly young male cat. He LOVES people but does not seem to have the same feelings towards the other cats at the shelter. Adam was just neutered so perhaps his attitude towards other felines may mellow. We had a hard time getting a picture of him for the web because he wanted to sit on our lap or rub between our legs.
Lola lived with an older person for many years. After her death, Lola went to live with a family who had two large dogs. Lola was very scared of the dogs so she took up residence in the bathroom. The family contacted the shelter because they felt that it was unfair for Lola to spend her life in their bathroom. Although her web picture is not the best; she is a pretty girl with gorgeous green eyes. She has a sweet and calm disposition. She was scared when she first came to the shelter but she is adjusting. She loves attention and purrs and head butts when you pet her. We think she would be happiest being the only cat in the household (and definitely no dogs). Lola is spayed and declawed. She would make a wonderful companion for an older person or couple.
