We are part of The Trust Project.

We are hosting our annual Home for the Holiday’s cat sale, which lasts from Nov. 1 through Dec. 31.

Available cats and kittens that are 6 months and older are eligible for this sale and are only $75. We have gift certificates available until January for those traveling during the holidays.

The purpose of this sale, in our eyes, is to help find our longest-term residents homes before the end of the year.

This sale allows us to adopt out more cats frequently, so we can begin working off of our very lengthy waiting list.

To this date, our longest-term resident is Tak, an orange and white domestic shorthair, male. He has been in and out of the shelter for a large majority of his life. His last entry back into the shelter was August 2021. This was due to no fault of his own. He was abandoned by his adopter, who had adopted him in 2019.


Tak is a very sweet and loving boy. He handles the shelter environment incredibly well. In fact, when we have visitors, he sits by the doors in the lobby and stares at families coming in and out.

Tak does well with the other cats here, and there have only been a few incidents where he did not particularly like a cat’s company. Tak would do well in most likely any family home, and is ready for his next adventure.

If interested in adopting any of our cats or kittens, please give us a call at 218-237-7100.
