IRIS AND IVY have found permanent homes. Please watch for more cats in the pink cage needing a forever home. As we adopt each cat out, we are able to rescue another, spay/neuter, microchip and vaccinate. Our job is to find a forever, loving home for each. Won’t you stop by and visit one of our locations... you just might find a lifelong, loving companion. Applications are on site.
