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.

Juliette’s little family

???????????????????????????????Juliette was dumped in a bag and Very pregnant. Not anymore! The blessed event was yesterday and now we have Juliette plus five. She is such a loving kitty and purrs when you fawn over her babies. They are big kittens for only a day old and Juliette does “happy feet” while they nurse. We need a foster for them but we have to warn you that you won’t want to give Juliette up when she is done raising her family.



Camilla is a very affectionate kitty who lost her home when her owner became ill and unable to care for her. She is a white cat with orange tabby marking. She was born on 12/7/2010. She is a quiet girl looking for her forever home. She will be a very nice companion. Come meet her at the shelter.


Marianne caught this cute video of a new kitten named Sarge. He isn’t up for adoption but we thought you would enjoy this adorable guy. Just click on the link.




???????????????????????????????If you or someone you know have been wanting a big television, perhaps one of these might fill the bill. We aren’t technicians but we turned them on and they are working. We are asking $25 apiece. All proceeds with go to support our rescued cats and kittens.

Volunteers needed at Petco in Boardman

Scared KittensIf you would like to support the rescue and adoption of homeless and abused cats and kittens, consider volunteering at Petco. Your job will take you about an hour.

Petco provides us with a small number of cages that can house 2-5 adoptable cats and kittens. You will clean their cages and litter boxes, get them fresh water, food and clean bedding. That’s pretty much it! While you are doing this, you can let them out in a room provided by Petco so they can run around and play.

Stay longer and play with them all you like. You can do this once a week or more often depending on your schedule. Call us and we can arrange meet you at Petco and show you the ropes and get you signed up if you see it’s something you want to do. You’ll be making a big difference in our rescue efforts!
