CARE they need, LOVE they deserve.
As the years go on, many animals come and go, and come and go. For some animals, those who are more "common" or "ordinary" tend to be overlooked for several reasons. These animals often remain in animal controls and animal rescue organizations for extended periods. They wait patiently while watching other furry friends get attention from visitors and then adopted. Their reality becomes a life essentially lived at our Adoption Center, for either months and for some, years.
The age, physical and behavioral attributes of a cat influences their length of stay at our Adoption Center. Unsurprisingly, younger, lighter-colored cats are adopted more quickly than older cats with darker coats. Ask anyone who works or volunteers in cat rescue, and they all seem to have a “cat who no one will adopt” story. Within our adoptable cat population, the darker colored, brown tabbies, cats over the age of 5-6 years, and those who are less interactive tend to stay with us the longest.
The goal for our organization was once very easy, to keep animals within our organizatin for the shortest time possible ultimately helping them get adopted. This is not always within our control. Over the years, many of these animals had or developed conditions rendering them less desirable, very difficult to adopt, or unadoptable. This being the case, we continued to provide these animals a safe place and the care they require. Since that day has never come for so many, they have learned and adapted to living at our facility. We do our best to make them feel at home, stimulate and enhance their lives the best we can. We are inviting the public to come and enjoy them weather it be up close and personal or from a safe distance. They all matter!
