The following are currently available for adoption, with descriptions courtesy of the respective organizations.


Nikki is a silver tabby about six years old. She is a funny little girl who enjoys everyone. Not a mean bone in her hears.

Sampson is about seven years old. He is a striking fellow with gray and white markings. He’s our greeter: he loves to sit on the cars and wait for you to leave so he can say good-bye. He is a love.

Jake is a special boy about 10 years old. He has a way about him – if a cat comes in and is timid, Jake will take the cat under his care and give the cat love and acceptance.

Annie is about eight years old. She has a sister who is practically her twin. They are sweet and tender hearted, and are good mouse catchers.

Gerr is a gentleman and very distinguished. His personality reminds us of someone sitting on a park bench, watching the people go by. Nothing gets by Gerr.

Joey is an eight-year-old striped tabby. He enjoys daily treats, is very energetic, and gets along with other cats.

Plummy is a three-year-old girl. She may be shy, but just until she gets to know you. Ask our volunteers. Once she knows you, she is very affectionate.

Ashton (pictured) and his best friend Chevy, who was too active to get a picture of, are five years old. Chevy is beige and white. Their personalities are so different, but they are always together. Like all boys, they love to roll in the dirt.


Beau is a five-year-old neutered male.

Tigger is a three-year-old neutered male grey and white tabby, with white toes. A love muffin with a fabulous personality.

Lily is a beautiful, super-affectionate silky black five-year-old spayed female who would dearly love a new forever home.

Deacon is such a character. He is a five-year-old neutered male ginger cat with personality to spare. He’s super-affectionate and waiting for somebody special to take him home.

Westie is a five-year-old ginger male cat that is very friendly and loves attention. Scratch his neck and he’s putty in your hands.

Annabelle is a very sweet, diminutive, and very shy young female tuxedo cat. Very beautiful.

Butter is a three-year-old female who likes to be petted.

Chloe is a tortoiseshell cat with major personality.

Kitty Randolph is a lovely, five-year-old spayed female tabby with a huge heart and a purr to match. Loving, beautiful, vaccinated, microchipped, and ready for a forever home.

Grandpa Eric is a truly great cat. Turned in as a stray, so we don’t know his exact age, but we do know that he’s a love and will bring great joy into somebody’s life.

Missy is our wonderful, loving pitbull. She needs a very dog-aware owner. She is well behaved, incredibly affectionate, and loyal with people.

MacKenzie is a very handsome, healthy, and athletic seven-year-old guy. He’s neutered and up-to-date on all his vaccinations.
