Brother and sister must be adopted together


Winston says:  

You’ve heard of the couple, Romeo & Juliet? Well, please say hello to Pete & Juliet, a brother and sister who are a bonded pair and would need to be adopted together.

They just came into the shelter in September and were originally strays. They are four months old and will easily fit into almost any family. They enjoy each other’s company, would get along well with children and even dogs.

They are incredibly sweet, playful, warm and loving.

Readers, why adopt one when you can have two? The plus side is you already know that they get along beautifully! Please stop into the shelter and see this wonderful couple!

Thank you! 

Sincerely, Winston

Cat’s Pride
Litter program

We participate with Cat’s Pride Litter for Good Program --- we’ve received 4,000 pounds of cat litter due to nominations from the community.

This is an ongoing promotion. The more nominations, the more litter we receive.

Litter as you can imagine, is a great expense for us, so this would be a wonderful savings for our shelter. 

The public is invited to participate as follows: 

1. Go tocatspride.comand sign up for the free Cat’s Pride Club 

2. Click on the “Nominate” button to help us receive litter. 

3. Enter bonus code: 4GOOD and you will double your shelter nomination. 

4. Buy a green jug of Cat’s Pride Fresh and Light – every time you do, another pound of litter is added to the total amount donated.
