Cats for Adoption

tofur1Handsome Tofur is a senior flame point Siamese mix neutered male looking for a cozy retirement home! He has had dental, and blood work done thanks to Broken Promises Rescue, and is ready to warm someone's heart and lap. He is a super sweet gentleman.

Gomer Gomer1is a DMH black, neutered male mature cat likely between the ages of 8-12. Despite his haggard appearance, and grumpy demeanour, Gomer has managed to win the hearts of the staff at the shelter. He has been SNAP tested, had bloodwork, x-rays and been looked at by a vet and he is in perfect health, the only thing that may be broken is his soul. This guy has probably lived a hard life on the street for a long time. He enjoys the comforts of a warm bed and regular food, does not enjoy the company of other cats, and is just hoping for a quiet retirement home with a family who understands and accepts him for who he is.

Barn Cats!Barn Cat1 We currently have three barn cats available for farm properties. These cats come spayed/neutered and vaccinated. They are wild cats so keep their distance from people but do make the best ratters for farm properties. If interested please contact the shelter. Adoption fee is by donation.

Other Animals for Adoption

triscut1Triscut is an adult male rattie looking for a place to call home. He is a friendly fellow, a little shy but should do just fine in most households.
