Meet Holly!
This lovely lady is a sweet girl who we estimate to be about 4 years old. Holly came to us from a property that had other cats, and she is living peacefully with a feline roommate right now, too. Holly likes: petting, playing with string toys, and hanging with her roommate Odin. Holly does not like: being picked up too much, or being confined to small spaces. Holly is FIV positive, and you can learn more about FIV here.

Vaccinations up to date, spayed / neutered, special needs. FIV positive – more info.
Other cats.


At about 5 years old, Hattie is a mature, but fun-loving girl who cannot wait to find a new home! She is gentle, affectionate, and easygoing. Hattie was living indoors and outdoors before she came to the shelter. She has lived with other cats before, too. She is loving and will gently boop your hand to ask for pets 🙂


Hi, I’m Kayla! I’m about 2 years old and in search of a new home. I’m a sweetheart, enjoying all sorts of petting and love! I was found with my babies, who are looking for homes as well. We are all fixed and vaccinated. A little special thing about me is that I have 3 legs! Come visit me and get to know me!


Hi, I’m Sugar and I am looking for a home! I am estimated around 2 years old. I was trapped as a part of an effort to fix feral cats, but guess what! I actually think you people aren’t that bad! I’m not feral–in fact, my foster mom reports that I would curl up on her leg, make cookies, and lean in for more pets. I like to talk to my people with adorable little chirps. I’m still not a huge fan of being picked up or held, but I am learning more each day. I’d thrive in a place where I could have some independence, but still enjoy those sweet neck massage you people like to give. Here at the shelter, I like to lay low. You may not see my full personality. But if you take a chance on me, I’ll show you how I got my name 🙂 My adoption fee has been sponsored and there is no fee to take me home!


Hi, I’m Grayson! I’m about 3 years old and quite the character! I’m a boy who loves attention, loves petting, and loves to play. I also love my independence and don’t love to be cooped up. I’m a confident, curious cat who is looking for that forever family to call my own. I’m searching for a home with no other cats, please.
