Featured Cat


Leah is a DSH torti. She came to us as a stray and is a bit timid. We believe that she is approximately 2 years old.

She is learning to get along with other cats here but we think she would like a quiet home with older children.

Leah does like attention but it takes her time to warm up to you!



Emily is a 4 to 5 month old female kitten. She likes playing with other cats but more on her terms. She is very sneaky the way she walks around checking everything out and then she stumbles across something that usually gets her in trouble! Very sweet girl!

4 to 5 month old tabby who was left on our doorstep a few months back, along with another kitten, Emily. She is definitely the more outgoing of the two. Gizmo doesn't seem to be afraid of anything or anyone! She for sure loves toys and cuddles! Very sweet girl looking for a new forever home!

Isaac is a 4 month old male tabby. He is just learning to make friends here at AAHS. He was brought to us as a stray and is very curious on how things work around here. He does have a very playful side and does pretty good with all kids.

Smokey is a 5 or 6 year old male grey and white DMH cat. He was an outside stray and he is looking to be more of the indoor cat now. He likes to be around other cats and he is super friendly. Smokey would do best in a home with children 10 years and up as he does not like a lot of noise going on around him. 

Stetson is a 4 or 5 year old male black DSH. He came in with Smokey and was also an outdoor cat. He is now looking to be more indoors, especially with our cold winters. He is a pretty vocal cat and he will let you know when he wants something. Stetson would do good in any home. Gorgeous boy!

Barney is a 2 year old male yellow and white DMH cat. He was found as a stray and he is quite the cat. He picks and chooses who he wants to be friends with. He can be kind of a stinker; he will instigate something with some of the other cats here and others he is super friendly too. Barney likes kids of any age and enjoys playing with balls or chasing toys.

Madge5 to

7 year old black DSH, front declawed. She enjoys sitting in our windows and watching the birds come and go out of our trees. She can get spooked easily but we think that it is still an adjustment for her. 

Madge enjoys playing with all of our kitties here at the shelter. Madge is also a lot of luv.....17 lbs of luv!!!!! She is more of a lap kitty. She just craves the human touch and will turn herself inside out when you pet her!



5 to 6 month old gray tabby female DSH.  She’s an old soul--very mellow and quiet.  She might be a bit overwhelmed with the shelter environment, so we hope she’ll come out of her shell and be more playful once she gets into a home.  She’s waiting for just the right human to love her forever!

6 to 7 year old DSH grey tabby male farm cat. He is still learning to be alright with the human touch. He is nervous and uncertain of this unfamiliar lifestyle. We think he would do best with another cat in a quiet household. He is a sweet cat that needs to have someone who is willing to let him come around on his own time.

Tigger is a 4-5 year old DSH female cat that came as a stray from the Redfield area. Tigger is a pretty quiet cat and keeps to herself for the most part. She is a very loveable cat and enjoys human interaction. You will find her at AAHS perched up high on top of the cages or looking out the windows.



5 to 7 year old DSH sleek black kitty.  Fancy is pretty social and enjoys playing.  She lived with other cats and a dog and would do very well with either.  Fancy is a very quiet cat, hardly ever meows!  She is such a lover!


Leonard is approximately 9 to 10 years old. He was an outside farm cat and was extremely scared about coming here but has now made the adjustment. This guy will melt your heart. He is one of the H.S. favorites as he is just so stinking friendly and has so much character. He likes to have his lounging time but he certainly has a playful side. With his older age, he has lost a few teeth but that does not slow down his eating habits at all! 


4 year old male. He's a bit reserved but not unfriendly.  He just likes to hang out and be mellow.  He is a registered Ragdoll. Beautiful boy!


Jill is 3 to 5 years old. She was a house cat that was surrendered to us due to unforeseen circumstances. Jill did live with a dog and kids but would fight with the dog and keep a big distance from the kids. Getting to know her here, we think that she would be most happy in a home as an only pet. She does not like to be picked up and carried around at all. Jill likes everything to be on her terms and she wants what she wants when she wants it! No ifs, ands, or buts about it! One thing that we have noticed is that Jill will turn herself inside and out for some wet food or treats! So, if you want to stay in her good graces, keep that on hand at all times!!


Young female black DMH.  She was abandoned in a home along with another kitty who has since been adopted.  This gorgeous girl is clean and quiet, and is learning to adjust to the other cats here.  What a doll!
