What a year 2020 was! Despite Covid 19 causing us to halt adoption events in the spring, we had a record breaking season and have placed hundreds of cats and kittens with their furever families. We battled eye infections, URIs, limb injuries, panleuk, coyote injuries, and more, saving kitties who would not otherwise have survived. Thank you to all of our volunteers, adopters, and supporters, we could not save lives without you!

New Year, New Mew! JerrBear is such a sweet, yet confident gentle bear! He is a curious, playful kitty and loves to play in kitty tunnels. He tilts his head sideways whenever he is trying to understand human conversation. He also like to cuddle under you blanket on cold nights. He will also let you hold him like a baby while he check out the ceilings! He will be best situated with another young kitty so he can have a BFF to play with.
