Cats For Adoption
DMH/Brown Muted Tabby/Torti
Hello - my name's Gabriella!! My foster mom says I am the most fun cat she has ever fostered! I play and play and play - I act like a kitten all the time and other times I think I'm a dog! I chase balls, strings, feathers, dancers, and feet - HAHA! I like the big old dog in the house, but haven't met another adult cat so no clue how I'd feel about living with one. I'm a lot like the dog - I go to the door to go out (but they don't let me out), I go to the pantry for treats, and I follow people around the house all the time. I want to know what you're doing, making, or building and will do my best to help you. I have to admit that I'm fresh and while I like to be picked up and will curl up next to you, I'm not much for being pet a lot and will give "love nips". I definitely need a home where my family will play with me cause I have lots of energy and I am very active. One of my favorite toys is a pen light and I will chase that red dot til I'm out of breath. So, if you are a cat person who loves very personable, quirky, beautiful, typically female felines and will commit to several daily play sessions, pick me!
Note: Gabriella is in foster care and will be shown to approved applicants by appointment only.
Looking for a companion who can carry on a conversation? I’m your man! My name is Leroy and I’m a fast-talking, long and lean, “chatter box” charmer. If I were a person, it’s likely you’d come across me in the sultry city of New Orleans, swaggering down Bourbon Street during Mardi Gras with my walking stick, handing out beads to the ladies as I stroll by.
I have a charismatic confidence and I just love to interact with every person I meet. It doesn’t matter if we’re longtime friends or recent strangers - I have plenty of playful and polite attention to share! When I’m not “chatting it up” with the locals, I enjoy bounding and chasing after a wand toy and spending the rest of my time watching the world out the window, especially the birds gathering at the feeder outside! If you think you might like a southern city charmer to show you the happening hot spots of nighttime life, then ask about me today!
My name is Ellie and I'm one adorably quirky young lady! My personality is just as unique as my gorgeous markings and I've got a clever, curious and comical nature that keeps a smile on everyone's face.
I can be a very social girl and when I'm excited to see my human friends, I show my enthusiasm with an endearing awkwardness - I'll arch my back, bounce my front feet of the ground and rub against my friend's legs! One of my favorite daily activities is playing with toys. I'm a big fan of wand toys, mechanical mice and little stuffies that chirp. Don't have any of those? No problem! I can keep myself entertained just as easily with a cardboard box, milk bottle caps and a window for bird watching. Add in a cat tree or scratching post and I'm set. If you think that confidence, playfulness and tons of fun are what you are looking for in a feline companion - then I'm your girl!
Lucy is a very pretty and petite cat. It was a difficult adjustment for her coming to the shelter from her home. Her former owner could no longer keep her because of health issues. It took Lucy a few weeks to become comfortable and relaxed at the shelter. She is very compatible with the other cats which is surprising since she was the only pet in her former home. Lucy is “low key” and content to just hang out with her new friends. She is a little shy when she meets new people but she is friendly and affectionate. Because she lived with an older person, we feel that she would do best in a home with no young children. Lucy is a lovely girl who would love to provide some companionship for another person or family.
Digger's personality has evolved at the shelter. He was shy and cautious when he first came to the shelter. He is now quite confident and friendly. He is very compatible with the other cats at the shelter. Digger is quite handsome with expressive yellow eyes. He is strictly an indoor pet (which helps to keep his white fur clean). We think he may have received his name because he is very meticulous in the litter box making sure that "everything" is completely covered. Digger has a very gentle and loving disposition.
DSH/Black and White
Buddy is the perfect name for this handsome cat. He is a big boy with a nice disposition. Although he was the only pet in his last home, he appears to be compatible with the other cats. Buddy is declawed so he must be an indoor pet. He has never lived with young children so a home with adults or older children would be best. Buddy is a friendly feline who needs a new family.
What a change a few weeks make! I arrived at college as a quiet little wall-flower, but will be leaving college with the confidence and courage to continue exploring the world and learning how great people are as companions!
Although I have built up my confidence I can be a little slow adjusting to new people in my life; just remember patience is key, along with neck and ear massages. Once you become one of my friends, I will happily trot over to visit and rub against your legs or climb on your lap to seek attention. I also have a hidden playful side and will roll around on the floor, but I try to reserve this behavior for special bonding moments.
Although I am tolerant of other cats, I would prefer to be the only feline in the household. If you have room in your heart and home for me, please stop by and find out for yourself how warm and affectionate I truly am.
Note: Abby is in the Becker College program and will be shown to approved applicants by appointment only.
Senior Feline Companion - Reduced Adoption Fee of $50
Norman was found in August 2013 with his flea collar embedded in his neck. He was so incredibly sweet and gentle that we had to give him a chance. Thanks to PAL foster mom, Tracie, Norman recovered from his injuries and is up for adoption.
During a recent vet visit, we received discouraging news - an ultrasound showed that Norman has heart disease. What does this mean for Norman's future health? Right now, he is on a very low dose of blood pressure medicine which only costs $4 every 5 weeks. He will need to be regularly monitored by a vet.
Norman is the perfect balance between playful adult cat and purring lap cat. He loves to play with his catnip toys and turbo scratcher in his foster home. He also likes to carry on a conversation and tell you about his day. When he is not playing with his toys he really loves to curl up on your lap and get his head petted. It is unknown how Norman would be with other cats or dogs since he has been living the single life in his foster home. It you are looking for a fun loving cat who also knows how to chill out, Norman is your guy.
PAL would love to find an adopter who has some experience with feline heart disease. Norman's journey has been long and difficult, but he's a survivor and we want him to find a home where he will be cherished and loved for the rest of his life.
Senior Feline Companion - Reduced Adoption Fee of $50
Mabel, who is a very sweet feline “senior citizen,” came to the shelter because her human Mom passed away. She has all the good qualities that maturity brings. She is affectionate, quiet and easy going. She has been examined by a veterinarian who commented, “Mabel is a very healthy and happy cat.” She is a pretty girl with big double paws on her front feet. She would make an ideal companion for a mature person or couple.
Special Needs: FIV+
Special Home Needed:
Workshop Cat or Only Pet in the Home, FIV+
Autumn spent 2 years outside having multiple litters of kittens until she was rescued. She is a typical temperamental Torti who is also FIV+. She needs an indoor only home or shop as an only pet with no kids. Autumn is a very difficult cat to place, but we are hopeful that someone will be touched by her story and offer her a forever home.
FIV+ cats can live a long and happy life. For more information on FIV, click here.
Special Home Needed:
Barn Cat, Workshop Cat, or Only Pet in the Home
Penny has been with PAL for over a year. She is a very independent cat who does not want or need a lot of attention. Penny should be an only pet. Is she hard to place? Yes. But we still think that she can find a forever home where she will be accepted and loved for her quirky personality.
Recently Adopted Cats
Special Needs: FIV+
Tobee is a big handsome hunk with a sweet and unassuming personality. He was found as a stray in a local town. Although he is FIV+; he is the picture of health. He is “plump” and has a beautiful black coat. Tobee is just a tad shy when he meets new faces but he warms up quickly. He appears to be compatible with other cats so he would be great as a companion for another FIV+ feline. Tobee is a gentle soul who make a great companion for some lucky family.
FIV+ cats can live a long and happy life. For more information on FIV, click here.
Note: Tobee was transferred to another shelter that has great luck placing FIV+ cats! He has another FIV+ "roommate" to hang out with in his own room until he finds his forever home.
Chester came to the shelter from a local animal control officer. He had been found as a stray. As you can see from his picture, Chester was rather “tattered and forlorn” upon arrival. In spite of his medical issues, he was (and still is) the nicest and friendliest cat. He has been neutered - had his hernia repaired - is being treated for intestinal parasites and an eye infection. He purred his way through all the veterinary procedures. Chester has become one of the favorites at the veterinary clinic. His favorite time of the day is mealtime. He will eat any kind of food that is available. Chester definitely had some rough times in his life before he came to the shelter. But he is now healthy and happy and ready to give some family a lot of love and fun.
Lola is a stunningly beautiful tortoiseshell cat. Her former owner loved her dearly but was forced to surrender her because of personal issues. It took Lola a few days to adjust to the shelter but now she loves attention. She purrs and rolls on her side when you stroke her. Lola is GREAT with the other cats (she previously lived in a multi-cat household). She would do best in a home with older children. We are hoping to find a quiet, low activity home for this very sweet natured cat.
Maddie is a one of our very special cats. She will bring much love and affectionate into someone's home. This pretty Torti was brought to a local veterinary clinic by a good Samaritan after being found outside and homeless. Emaciated from neglect, she devoured her first meals at the clinic and began the road to recovery. The staff quickly became enamored with Maddie's sweet disposition.
So why is Maddie special? Well, we think that at some point in her life she was perhaps hit by a car because she walks with an unusual gait and has some weakness in her back end. In spite of her physical limitations, she is a very happy cat and has no problem using her litter box. It is hard to imagine how Maddie survived on her own and although we’ll never know the beginning of her life story, we will help her find her happy ending! Maddie awaits her second chance in life. Her wish is a warm home with a loving family.
A note from Maddie's foster mom: "When I enter the room she looks at me as if to say, "Yay, I am going to get petted and talked to now". She is always on the bed and jumps down to greet me as I sit on the floor. The first thing we do is head bop each other - my official greeting - then she proceeds to rub her head up against everything in sight as if to tell me that she is claiming everything around as her own including me. After we are done with the official greeting, I pick her up and hold her like a baby. She ABSOLUTELY loves being held on her back cradled in my arms. as I rub her all over she is kneading the air in happiness. She would stay there all day if I let her. She is so happy for any attention and love that you give her that she doesn't want it to stop. I cannot believe a cat that has had that rough a life is just so trusting and caring toward humans. She is a loving little girl and anyone would be lucky to have her in their lives."
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.
We are Downtown Abbey fans at the shelter (the people not the cats). We named this cat Abbey hoping that she finds a “castle” of her own to spend the rest of her life. She really doesn’t need a castle just a home where she is loved. Abbey is a beautiful girl with a nice disposition. She has taken ownership of the Garfield bed in the shelter. Abbey is very compatible with the other cats. She was found as a stray in a local town. She is a pretty girl with a great personality!
Jessa is a beautiful black cat with striking yellow eyes. She was very traumatized when she first came to the shelter. She was aloof and stayed to herself. With time she has become friendly and actually looks for - and likes - attention. Her past history includes mistreatment from a man. She still remains weary of men who come to the shelter. Jessa has made lots of progress from a sociability standpoint. She has also become comfortable with the other cats. She went through a rough period in her life so we are hoping that an adopter will give her the stability and love she deserves.
Grayson was abandoned by his family when they moved and he sadly sat on the front porch of the house for weeks waiting for them to return. Then he started getting really hungry so he moved to the neighbor's porch and ask for help. He is incredibly good looking with a very nice disposition. He has a very calm and friendly disposition. He seems to be so appreciative of the help (and good food) we are giving him. It is hard to understand why he was left behind by his family.
I've been adopted!
DSH/Orange Tiger and White
The only thing on Reba's Christmas list is her wish for a new home. She has been at the shelter almost a year. Reba is our feline make over for 2013. In the shelter, she was not a happy girl. Her unhappiness was largely due to the fact that she does not like other cats. We moved Reba to her own "private space" and she blossomed into an friendly and affectionate cat. We also discovered that she loves Cody, the shelter mascot. So we think that Reba would be very happy in a home with a dog (a mellow one like Cody). She is a very low maintenance cat who is content with life. All she wants is some occasional "stroking" but then she is content to go off and "do her own thing." She spends hours laying in the window and watching the great outdoors. We are hoping that someone will open their heart and home for Reba.
This pretty gray tortie came to the shelter from a local animal control officer. She loves mealtimes but maintains her slim figure (good genes). Annie is shy with new people initially but is very sweet natured. She loves to be brushed - she purrs and rolls on her back asking for more. Annie would do best in a home with adults only. She is an indoor pet and would be very happy as an apartment dweller. She is compatible with the other cats at the shelter, but prefers the company of the girls. She is quite playful and she amuses herself with many of the toys at the shelter.
Some canned food and a brush - that is all you need to make Annie happy.
Adam is a very nice cat with handsome tiger markings. He loves people and wants to be your feline friend. He would prefer to be the only feline member of the household but he has been exposed to a few dogs whom he seems to like. He is strictly an inside pet. You may recall that 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. He was adopted and his new family loved him dearly, but due to unforeseen circumstances, were forced to return him. He eagerly awaits his forever home so if you are looking for an affectionate and good looking male cat, Adam is your boy.
This picture does not do justice for this pretty little Siamese mix female. She was just spayed so she is resting for a few days in her cage before we allow her to mingle with the other cats. As soon as I open the cage door to snap a picture, she jumps up to greet me. Tamaki was found as a stray in a local town. She was so hungry and was happy to eat the dog food which was the only food that her rescuer had available. She is very friendly and affectionate. Needless to say, her favorite time of the day is mealtime. With some good food and TLC, Tamaki is going to blossom into a beautiful cat with a disposition to match. And as an added bonus, she has big double paws.
“What is it?! Can I eat it?! Can I play with it?!” I'm Curly and I’m one entertaining, youthful and bold fellow! Playing is by far my favorite pastime (next to eating) and I just can’t get enough of it! I’m innately curious and inquisitive (and I’ll admit, a little mischievous by nature) and I’m often the mastermind behind my brother and I’s “adorably naughty” schemes.
I’m social and interactive with my people friends, but I’m a bit of a squirmy, squiggly guy – I often don’t have time to sit and snuggle because there is plenty of playing to do! When it comes to time spent with my brother, Larry (who is also available for adoption – we’d make a great pair for someone looking for two), I most certainly make the all of the plans! Whether it is rough-housing (I do like to play WWE style), sleeping (snuggled up close to my brother on top of the cat tree) or just plain looking for a new adventure to tackle, it’s all on my time schedule - I want what I want, when I want! If you’re looking for a young friend who greatly appreciates that life is too short to be serious, then please consider meeting me!
Paisley came to the shelter as a stray from one of the local towns. We think she was part of a family at some point in her life because she is spayed and very friendly. She is a very pretty tortoiseshell with beautiful yellow eyes. She appears to be compatible with the other cats. We will post more information on Paisley as we get to know her better.
Opie is a really good looking dude with soulful eyes. He is shy of new people and experiences but very sweet natured. Opie would make a great companion for another feline. In fact, other feline friends bring out the playfulness in Opie. He is a gentle soul who needs a home where his new family would be understanding and patient. We are hoping this special boy finds his forever home soon.
Larry’s the name and friendly’s the game! I’m a soft, sweet and engaging young guy! Although I’m only a year old, I’m already on my way to having the great balance between playtime and snuggle time that housecats twice my age have developed! I’m a cute and funny guy, and can often be found flipped over on my back – for some reason, I enjoy viewing the world from upside down!
After I’ve joined in a good rough and tumble romp with my brother Curly (who is also available for adoption – we’d make great pair if someone is looking for two), I love to snuggle! It doesn’t matter if it’s curled up next to by brother or flopped in your lap for some purring and petting – I greatly enjoy them both! After I’ve slept a while, then it’s back to tumbling again! If you think you’d like a playful, handsome young man that is soon to blossom into an easy-going lap cat, then I could be the feline for you!
Why hello! It’s a pleasure to make your acquaintance! My name is Ozzy and I’m a laid-back, easy going kind of guy. My friends at school call me a “mush pie” and I’ve often heard the phrase “pleasantly pudgy” – I’m not sure what that means but I know I have a handsome spotted coat and an adorably round face, so that must be what they are referring to!
I am a humble, low key kind of cat and I certainly don’t ask for much – just some quality petting, chin scratches, kisses (and of course a couple of treats) are enough to keep me content! I certainly don’t mind being by myself, but whenever someone comes to visit me I rush right to the door to meet them with my happy “meow” - for a gentleman like me, it’s only good manners to politely greet everyone you meet! If a mild-mannered, “sweet as pie” guy is what you’re looking for, then search no more – I’m the cat for you!
My name is Daphne and I'm guessing my good looks have caught your eye. Well, I'm very flattered but I will admit that looks don't matter to me as much as personality does. Despite my star-quality, diva-like appearance, I am really quite the easy keep! I'm a petite, fluffy girl and I'm affectionately referred to by my friends at school as their "little marshmallow." I'm well known for being sweet, quiet and admittedly a little shy. I arrived at school with my daughter cat, Ellie, and we're a wonderful pair if someone is looking to adopt two fantastic felines! I am a doting and caring mom and am very tolerant of Ellie's playful kitten antics!
Although I'm not much of a lap cat, I do greatly enjoy brushing and petting - I can be an adorably roly-poly girl, rolling over and stretching out in front of you for a gentle pet on the belly. At home, I think I would make an excellent couch companion - I greatly enjoy sleeping and snuggling and love nothing better than a warm bed to curl up in after some quality petting and playtime. I am one gentle and beautiful cat - if soft-spoken elegance is your style, then we're sure to be the perfect match!
This calico girl is not only pretty but has a charming personality to match. She is "Mom" to the three kittens pictured on our web site. She took very good care of her kittens but she is now retired from motherhood. She is spayed and ready to be adopted. Katie is friendly and very "people oriented." She is also compatible with dogs. She would make a wonderful feline companion for a family.
Rudy has all those good genes that most orange cats seem to possess. He is gentle, friendly and affectionate. We are determined to find this boy a kind and loving home. His life has not been good up to this point. Rudy is shy initially but immediately responds to any act of kindness or attention. He would be very happy as an indoor pet. As you can see from his picture, he is quite content at the shelter - he loves his bed and the good meals.
Jack is a big handsome hunk of a cat. He tips the scales at 15 pounds. He is not fat - he is muscular and brawny. Jack is very personable and friendly. Although he has a a very outgoing personality, we would like to find Jack a home with no young children. He was teased in his former home by a toddler. He loves people, toys and mealtimes. Although Jack is a big cat, he still plays like a kitten. This special cat will bring companionship and fun into someone's home.
I've been adopted!
Mork, Mindy, and Mabel - We have been adopted!
Crissy, Puck, and Olivia - We have been adopted!
Meet Aviva and Chris!
We are an adorable 8 week old sister/brother pair. We are in foster care with other cats, a dog, a school-aged child. Aviva is a firecracker who is super outgoing and playful. Chris is a loveable sweetheart. They will both be a great addition to your home.
Tessa has been a lonely single girl for over a year and patiently awaits her forever love. This stunning beauty was abandoned by her family and spent a year outside on her own before a kind soul rescued her from dumpster diving. A rags to riches story, Tessa has been with PAL since December of 2012. Since that time, we have gotten to know her well. Tessa seems to like calm dogs, but other cats are not her thing. Tessa has a glorious thick heavy coat that requires daily brushing and regular professional grooming. She is friendly and outgoing with people, but likes petting so much that she gets herself over-stimulated. Her new adult only family will need to recognize this trait to avoid Tessa's "love nips". Tessa has been indoor only since she came to the shelter, but we think she would benefit and enjoy some supervised outdoor time so if you are cat and garden savvy, Tessa may be your soul-mate.
This skinny little waif was found as a stray and taken to a local veterinary clinic. She was in bad shape. She was flea infested and grossly underweight for her age. Cats are resilient little creatures. After flea treatment and a few good meals, her spunky personality emerged. Zelda is friendly, likes attention and LOVES to play. She enjoys every toy we give her. She also enjoys every meal (whatever is on the menu). Although she really likes people, Zelda does not appear to be enamored with the other felines in the shelter. When she gains a few more pounds and her fur coat thickens, she will be very pretty little girl. Zelda is recovering from a bad period in her life and we are hoping to find her a home where she can be the pampered feline princess.
Boots is now singing the words of the song "I wanna get out of this place." And we certainly understand his frustration. Boots has been a resident of the shelter for over six months. Many times Boots has been the "second choice" of adopters. We're hoping that Boots will be the first choice of some family soon. He is a nice boy who is very easy going. He is content to spend his days watching the happenings outside or lounging in the sun. He would do okay in a home with another cat (although he is getting a little frustrated with some of the "ladies" at the shelter) or he might be happiest as the king of his domain. Boots is a big brawny boy with beautiful tiger markings. He can be a little independent but that is part of his charm. He appears to be apprehensive of young children so a home with adults or older children would be best. Boots has his bags packed and is ready to move to his new home.
I've been adopted!!
Senior Feline Companion: $50
Chloe is a beautiful and sweet calico girl. Most calico cats seem to have a bit of an "attitude" but Chloe is the exception. She is very friendly and affectionate. She rolls on her side when you talk to her (as you can see in her picture). Her former human "Mom" (who loved her dearly) had to surrender Chloe because of health problems. She was the only feline in the home so we think that Chloe may do best as the princess of her palace. We have lots of items to send along with Chloe - her carrier, bed, toys, etc. She is 8 years old but she received regular veterinary care and has no health issues. We can tell that Chloe misses her home and we are hoping that someone adopts this lovely girl soon.
Molly is such a pretty cat with the cutest face. For the first few days she was scared and shy when she was surrendered to the shelter. And then she went into a heat cycle and was really confused. She is now spayed and her personality is delightful. She responds with purrs and rolls on her side when you talk to her. She may do best in a home where she is the only feline. She apparently was attacked by a second unspayed female cat in her former home. Molly would be a delightful addition to a quiet and loving home.
Bentley is a handsome male cat with beautiful blue eyes. His good looks are matched by his personality. He is friendly, affectionate and loves attention. It takes him about 30 seconds to become your buddy and he will be your friend for life. Wouldn't be look good laying on your favorite chair at home?
Teddy was named by the staff at a local veterinary clinic because he reminded them of a feline teddy bear. We are not sure what his "breed" is but he is a really good looking cat. He has a beautiful fur coat, big paws and a fluffy tail that he is always happy to show off. Teddy is super friendly and LOVES attention. However he is a cat who can get over stimulated if you give him too much attention. Teddy was recently neutered so that may help with his occasional "love bites." He was living as a stray in a local town. We think that perhaps Teddy would be happiest in a home where he could be an inside/outside pet. He may benefit from the additional stimulation of the great outdoors. Teddy needs a person who can give him love and attention but understand that it should be given in small doses. It was really difficult to get a picture of him because he wanted to be sitting on my feet or in my lap.
Adele is a beautiful "full-figured" 2 year old full of affection and happiest in your lap being pet! Her loving ways are kinda rare for a girl, but she is a true Diva with other cats and dogs and will thrive as your one and only where she can be showered with your undivided attention. Adele has a unique purr almost sounding like a bird (you have to hear it to believe it). With her good looks and great personality, we know this musical superstar will be a great addition to your family.
Nala is the feline gymnast at the shelter. She is quite agile, athletic and can create her own fun playing with a paper bag. She is friendly to any person who visits the shelter. She loves attention, petting and snuggling. She sometimes interacts with the other cats but also enjoys "doing her own thing." Because of her outgoing personality; we think Nala would adjust to a cat friendly dog. If you are looking for a fun loving and playful feline companion - Nala is your girl.
The description on this cat is full of positive adjectives! Jenny is a pretty petite girl with a sweet disposition. She was found as a stray and there was evidence that she had kittens in the recent past, but her kittens were never found. She LOVES attention. She purrs and kneads with her paws when you interact with her. Her sociability with other cats is also good. Jenny is a charmer and we hope that we can find her a home where she can be loved and appreciated.
This cute and sweet young male cat has blossomed at the shelter. His former owner had many personal problems so Jasper was relegated to the "great" outdoors but a kind neighbor came to the rescue. He was dirty, unkempt and scared when her first came to the shelter. The transformation has been remarkable. He is incredibly handsome with soft "bunny" fur. Jasper would do best in a home with adults or older children. He is still shy when he first meets new people but he is super affectionate once he trusts you. Jasper is wonderful with the other cats at the shelter so he would make a great companion for another feline.

Shelly - 8 weeks - female
My foster mom keeps saying that I am so beautiful, and that I have a gentle face. I hope you think so too when you meet me. When I first got here I was a little shy, but I am starting to realize how much I love humans, and I'm even getting used to that little person that runs almost as fast as I do. I am a simple kitty, I like my nap times and love to play. I'm the BEST as sneaking up on my brothers, I get them every time. I would love my furrever home to be one with another kitty that will love me, and humans that are patient enough to give me time to adjust. I'm ok with the dog in my foster home, but I don't think we'll ever be besties... I sure am looking forward to exploring my new palace!! I hope I get to meet you soon!!
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.
I've been adopted!!!!

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.
I'm being adopted by my foster mom - PAL is still fundraising to offset the cost of my surgery!!
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!
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.
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.
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.
