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 is to keep animals with us for the shortest time possible, and help them get adopted as quickly as possible. This is not always within our control. We provide them a safe place, care they require, and we then rely on members of the community to adopt them. If that day never comes, they remain under our care. We do our best to make them feel at home.
Highly Adoptable - Interactive (approaches, allows petting, purrs or meows at potential adopter)
Moderately Adoptable - Approachable (not aggressive, may allow handling, being picked up is usually accomplished within time, not super playful)
Least Adoptable - Unapproachable (hiding, scared, running away from people, behaviors such as lashing out/biting/scratching)
We are thrilled to welcome you!
