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.

???????????????????????????????Squeak-A-Doo is such a sweet and loving guy. He came to the shelter when his owner became homeless and was going to a shelter of his own. He is such a personable guy and loves to visit the people that come into the room where he resides. He’s always looking through the window into the office and saying hello (meow) to us. He will make such a nice friend and lap cat. He’s just over 6 years old (birthday 11/30/2007)and his adoption fee is just $40.00.


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.




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.

Munchkin a cerebellar hypoplasia cat

CH KittyMeet Munchkin, a cerebellar hypoplasia cat. There was an underdevelopement in the balance center in his brain that won’t get worse or better.He is severely CH and can’t walk. He will require a great deal of care and cleaning. However, he is such a sweet boy. People come to the shelter just to visit and play with him. He is a very loving boy and gets along with cats and people alike. He likes to hang out with another CH cat named Stewie who is less severe and very funny. Come meet them both at the shelteer.

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.
