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!



Zeke is a 2 to 3 year old neutered male DSH.

He is super friendly and came to us as a stray. 
We are still getting to know him but what we do know now is he is great with other cats and really enjoys cat toys that make noises! It's like he just can't figure that out!! He would do well with any age kid as he is fun-loving and chill.

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.


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!


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! 

Rocky is a 5 month old male neutered kitten. He came to us as a stray and was full of ringworm to the point that he had no hair left on his body. He was approx. 3 weeks old at that time. It has taken a lot of hard work and lots of treatments but this guy has bounced back and has been fully recovered for a month now, with no signs of it coming back! 

Rocky is spunky and fun and is enjoying life all that he can now. He is such a fighter to make it through all that he has and still be as loving as he is! This little guy would do wonderful in any home!



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!

Bretta is a female white and grey tabby who is just learning how to act around other cats. She is a quick learner, though, and is doing great! She loves to have her back scratched and check things out around the room. She would do well in just about any home. Come see this pretty girl and she just might steal your heart!


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!



Gracie is a younger female.  She was found as a stray and we think that she had been a stray for most of her life.  She is learning to trust people and is getting better with us interacting with her.  She likes to watch all the other cats play but she hasn't quite decided yet if she wants to make friends with any of them.  We think she would do best in a home with older children and possibly a more quiet home. 



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!


5 to 7 year old black DSH.  She was left behind in a home with Bianca.  Madge is 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.  Like Bianca, 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!


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!!
