We are always looking for new ways to have the shelter be known and recognized for the GEM that it is in Youngstown. This means volunteers to help with everything it takes to run a shelter and find funding for the shelter.

A little secret

There are two tiny, itsy bitsy male kittens at the shelter. No, they are not Persians or anything fancy but they are too cute to be legal. They probably won’t last the day.


This photo of Jeremiah, a little brown tabby of 10 months old, was taken on the day he entered the shelter so he might look a little worried. He sure is adorable. He came from another Ohio shelter that lost their home and we stepped in to help. Come meet him soon.

Have you seen me?

SimonThis kitty is an indoor kitty but when he heard the birds singing he made a break for it when the door was opened. He belongs to a young man with Asperger’s Syndrome and the cat is with him most of the day. He is devastated over the loss of his cat. His mom called us today to see if we had seen him. We hadn’t but thought maybe you had. Let us know if you know of a found kitty like this. He is a 4 year old neutered male. He went missing in the Warren area.

Foster Found!




Yay, we found a great foster! Look for us at the shelter (or PetSmart in Niles or Petco in Boardman) next month when we are around 9 or 10 weeks old. Want to sponsor our spay/neuter surgeries? click on the Donate button and thank you in advance.

These adorable kittens are about 5 1/2 weeks old and need a foster until they are around 9-10 weeks old. They are utterly cute and playful and fun. There are six of them and no mommy. Your job would be to keep them safe, play with them and cuddle them and do the standard cleaning and feeding they need to grow up strong. Call us to find out more about these little sweethearts.




Born 8/16/2013, Edison was adopted last year but was returned due to unfortunate circumstances. He is the most adorable kitten in the kitten room. He is so friendly and loving. He follows you around and wants your attention. He likes being held. If you are looking for your new best buddy, come and meet him soon. He won’t last.


???????????????????????????????Marble is a friendly girl that likes to follow you on walks around the shelter. She was brought to the shelter by a concerned Youngstown citizen with her 5 week-old kittens last year. She’s a beautiful tortoiseshell with lovely markings. She is just four years old, born 4/1/2010. Come meet her at the shelter.
