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.

Adorable little Willow has been adopted.  Congratulations to her and her new forever family!  

Willow is a very cute kitten who is waiting for you at PetSmart in Niles.  She is absolutely adorable and LOVES to play and comes right up to you to see if you will play with her.  Come and meet her in Niles.

Help!!! We REALLY need some Fosters. So many Cuties!

We have some sweet ones now that need foster with more coming in.  Look at these cuties and you won’t be able to say no (we hope).  Most come with mommies who will do most of the work while you enjoy the cuteness.  Call us or come in if you are interested.  Fostering is a lot of fun and most fosters come back for more.  One of these litters has some Siamese mixes and the other has polydactyls.


Diego has found his forever home.  Congratulations to Diego and his new family.

Diego is a really a BIG beautiful guy.  He was born 1/16/2011.  He’s a front-paw declaw and incredibly sweet.   He’s quite the puff ball with long shiny hair.  Come and meet him at the shelter.

Janet’s Famous Traveling Garage Sale this Saturday 5/25

Come peruse the amazing wares at Janet’s Traveling Garage Sale this Saturday at the shelter garage and parking lot.  Janet will not be undersold. Her prices are ridiculous and all proceeds go to support West Side Cats.  It’s from 10am to 4pm.


BubblesBubbles was accidentaly poisoned by a Hartz flea bath followed by a Hartz flea collar.  She spent the last week in the hospital where is was very touch and go.  When she finally started eating again we were able to bring her back to the shelter.   Unfortunately, all of the other cats seem to be upsetting Bubbles a bit.  She would like a quiet home where she can relax and devote herself to you.  She looks like a typical tuxedo cat but she’s actually a calico courtesy of the cutest orange spot you ever saw covering her back foot.   She’s still missing lots of fur due to the flea infestation but with the fleas gone the fur is growing back.  She was obviously loved sometime in her life as evidenced by her girth (she’s a little overweight).  Come meet her at the shelter.  All her healthcare is done and she is ready to go home and be loved by you.

Help us rescue cats like Bubbles by contributing to the shelter (tax deductible of course).


Magic went home before she got on the interwebs!  Congratulations to Magic and her new family.

Magic is possibly the most friendly cat in the shelter.  She absolutely loves people and comes to greet you when you come into her room.  Magic is a medium to long hair black cat who would love to be your best friend.  She also gets along with the other cats at the shelter.


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.
