As a no-kill shelter we often have long term residents who have special requirements such as…
Urinary Imbalances – The most common special need we care for in the shelter. These cats or kittens require different food to help manage the crystals or stones that develop in the bladder and cause pain when urinating.
Environmental Restrictions – Some cats and kitten come to us needing surgeries to better their lives, eye removal and limp amputations are common. However we also have residents who are deaf or are diagnoses with FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus).
Behavioral Challenges – We all understand that some cats won’t get along together and on occasion we have residents who just absolutely can not be placed with other cats or dogs making them hard to show off in our adoption area.
