Henny

Henny,

Henny was born 11/17/2009. She lived outside before she came here and was shy when we got her but not any more. She likes people and gets along with other cats. Because of her original shyness she has been at the shelter a long time. She is more outgoing and it’s about time for her to find her real forever home. Come meet this beautiful and sweet girl at the shelter.

Smoochie Actively Fundraises at Pet Expo

Smoochie in the newsNaturally, Smoochie made the front page! She did a great job of fundraising at Pet Expo in Niles while asleep. The photographer caught her in one of her rare awake moments. It’s must be really tough being La Princessa! And, it’s why we pay her the Big Bucks.

Einstein

???????????????????????????????Einstein came in with her 10-day old kittens last year (which have already been adopted). She’s 2 years old and was left outside when the owner moved. She’s a friendly cat looking for her real forever home. She also has a little puff factor going on. Come and meet her at Petco in Boardman.

Morticia

Morticia2

Morticia is just the sweetest kitty. She was rescued from a kill shelter and then the rescuer had to change locations and didn’t have room to keep her. We stepped in and are so glad we did. She plays like a maniac and is so friendly. She has long silky black and dark grey fur and is way fun to pet. Come meet her at the shelter.

Chevy, a Hard-to-Adopt kitty

ChevyThis is Chevy, a beautiful tortie with awesome green eyes. Chevy has been at the shelter for over a year. Chevy is not friendly unless she wants to be. She will come up to you and rub on your legs hoping you will pet her and the next thing you know, at least for some of us volunteers, she is swiping at you with her claws.

Maybe she is irritated by all the other cats in the shelter and would rather be in a home without other felines. We don’t really know. What we don know it that we would love to find her a home where she is loved and given plenty of attention. Come and meet her at the shelter where you will find her sleeping on the clothes dryer.
