We are happy to have foster applications on hand. However it’s not easy to find the right placement. Most of our fosters have resident cats so we like to place kittens there. However the kittens tend to be adopted out quickly as we showcase them at Pet Valu (Dawson and Golf Links)  – moving them from […]

I think it’s still warm.     We look for the right home…not the “right now” home. We love that phrase coined by one of our fosters. It’s true. We are never desperate to adopt out any of our rescues and have refused adoptions in the past. One was refused yesterday. It just wasn’t the […]

Since we had a few adoptions this past week, our volunteer made all the follow-up phone calls to adopters. We want to ensure things are going well, […]

This  weekend was a bit of an emotional roller coaster.  After putting a cat into foster care and warning the foster of the cat’s desire to escape outside, I got a call that evening asking if there was financial liability to loosing a cat. What? The foster couldn’t find the cat and wondered if it […]

November 30, 2014 – As though Someone knew we needed some encouragement, Sherise was adopted yesterday and we have inquiries about 3 more of our spayed females. Contact with the fosters will be made and visits will be planned this week.  Sherise’s mom was lonely and wanted a pet to love. We are happy that not […]

November 27, 2014   Often it is thought that rescue work is romantic…so rewarding and exciting. Rewarding and exciting it is but it is often stressful and sometimes discouraging. With so many adoptions at Animal Services last week, we thought we would not have to worry about having to rescue more strays however we were notified of several – […]
