This 1930's house in Shelton has been converted solely for feline adoptions
Kitten Rescue has two different seasons. Kittens are normally born in early spring. January, February and March are the season when we have kittens from six months to a year, and also lovely adult cats. When inquiring about the adoption process families wanting to add a cat to their home are told that the cat or kitten must be an indoor only pet. The life span of an outdoor kitty usually is about a year. Indoor outdoor cats, if lucky, can live for three years, and indoor only cats easily if there are no health problems live for 15 years. Our shelter’s cats have been unwanted and in many cases found abandoned. Our shelter and our foster homes spend hours with socialization, make sure that the feline has proper medical procedures, immunizations, internal external parasite control and altering so the cat cannot reproduce.
Our website which is normally updated every 24 hours, will have pictures of the cats and kittens that we have available. The pictures that we have on Coming Attractions are of cats or kittens that are either not old enough for adoption or that are being tested for disease that they may have been exposed to. When they are old enough or clear of disease they will move to our adoptable category. They cannot be pre adopted as long as their pictures are on Coming Attractions. If you have found a picture of a cat or a kitten that interests you, the next step is give us a call. Unless the cats has just been with us a short time, we should be able to share information with you as to whether the cat should go to an adult only home or might do well with children. If you have very young children we may warn you that it is dangerous to have a young kitten with a toddler. We try very hard to match the right cat personality for your lifestyle and family to make the most successful adoption possible. When you have visited our shelter and found a very special new friend, you often will have to pre adopt until kitty is put on our list for spay/neuter. We have a limit on how many felines can be altered each week. If the kitty has already been altered, you can usually take it home that day. We will discuss the foods the kitty has been eating and send home samples so that your new friend does not get an upset tummy from food changes. A carrier will be necessary for transportation.
