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.

Stewie a CH cat

Stewie 2

This is Stewie, a very sweet and active boy with cerebellar hypoplasia, a birth defect that affects balance. He can take a few steps here and there but mostly gets around by scooting. He doesn’t have too much trouble climbing up on the furniture where he likes to take naps. He is a very personable kitty with lots of buddies in the special needs room (which he sneaks out of on a regular basis). So far, he isn’t able to use the litter box but he seems so capable that perhaps something could be put together for him so that he could. Or maybe he could have a special place setup with chux pads? He will also be a great lap cat. Come and meet Stewie and his friends today. He’s a very special special-needs kitty.


Huey is an adorable black kitty who loves people.  He was in a rescue in Chicago that was flooded in the recent storms and had no place to go until we rescued him.  He’s a really nice cat that will make a wonderful companion.  He gets along with other cats.  Come and meet him at the shelter.


Birthdate: July 1, 2008

He is a very sweet and active guy. He is a rambunctious clown.  He’s got sleek long hair on his very long body.  He reminds of us of a jaguar.  He was abandoned  in his home for two weeks until he was found and rescued.  When his rescuer could not keep him we came in and have given him a new chance at finding a forever home.  He’s more beautiful than the photos show.

Chantel is a beautiful girl looking for someone to love be loved by.  She may have another 10 or more years and it would be ashame to have to live all those years in a shelter.  Come and meet her during adoption hours at the shelter.


Robin is a a large (but not extra large) adult kitty with shiny black fur and lots of personality.  He’s soft as can be and is looking for his forever home.  He loves people and is very friendly. Come meet him at the shelter.
