We still have many kittens that need a home.

When these young cats  arrived they were almost feral, but through constant interaction with the volunteers they are improving. They are now comfortable with the volunteers, but still afraid of strangers. If you are interested in any and want to give them time to get to know you we would be happy to arrange visits where you could just sit and get to know them. You are welcomed to come as many times as necessary so they and you are comfortable together.

This is what can happen when people list pets as free to a good home.

Quote from a dog fighter

“The hardest thing is to get enough dogs and cats for baiting. One good source is the local newspaper that offer a cat or dog for free. My wife dresses up neatly and collects them for me. If that source is running dry we just hire local gang kids to fetch dogs and cats. They scour the backyards and alleys and take whatever number we need. They make sure they leave the doors or gates open so people just believe they accidentally left them unlatched and that’s how their animals got out and got lost.

Can you guess which cat this is?   Answer


Visit for assistance with wildlife emergencies throughout the United States.
  • We are in need of a donated car in good running condition. It will help us transport our residents to and from the Vet. Many of our residents are in their senior years and need more constant Vet care.
  • We are also in need of a outdoor shed for storage if anyone wishes to donate one.
