Oh wow, you're so big, it's a little bit scary! I might need to protect my sister, Fünf, from you. But if you're a good person, maybe we can be friends. It just takes a little to win my trust. My name is Acht, and I'm a nice kitten, just quite shy. I do love my sister and am bonded to her, so we would prefer to be adopted together. We would do best in a home with a quiet household that has enough patience to let us take our time to open up and settle in, since we're still getting used to people. We're not really used to dogs yet but haven't shown obvious signs of hating them either. We might be fine with other cats, since we seem quite curious about them. But little kids that haven't learned how to respect an animal's space or keep indoor voices would like frighten my sister and me, so we would do best in a quiet home with no children or older children only. If you're looking to adopt a less-adoptable pet but still want a kitten, then maybe Fünf and me are for you! People are still less likely to adopt black cats like us, sadly, and because we're still working on being socialized and are skittish, people often pass us up for the more snuggly and outgoing kittens. Hopefully someone loving and patient sees us and decides to give us a good home too, though! Can't adopt but want to help out? Consider sponsoring instead! When you become a Pet Pal and give monthly on behalf of our shelter animals, you are ensuring they receive the best care possible during their stay with the SPCA on their journey to a forever home. You not only are their sponsor, you're their truest friend! show less

If you're someone who is looking to really rescue an animal, I may be the cat you're looking for. You see, I'm a very sad kitty right now. Not just sad because I'm at a shelter - I'm sad because my human passed away. That's why I'm here. To top it off, on my journey to the shelter, I was so unhappy, my toenail got caught when I was trying to escape and was ripped right off. Ouch, that hurt! It turned out the people here didn't mean me any harm, and they've helped me feel better, but I'm still sad and spend most of my days sulking in my litter pan because my scent gives me comfort (maybe that sounds weird to humans but to a cat, it makes total sense). But truth be told ... I would really like to be loved again. I really enjoy it when someone quiet sits by my kennel and just talks to me and gives me time to come over for pets and head rubs. My ideal home would be an older couple or adult that works from home, someone that can hang around the house and keep me company all day. I would love to be someone's fur baby again. As for other pets, I got quite aggressive toward a dog at the shelter and was ready to fight her - she just looked like trouble! So I don't think I would be happy living with a dog. Cats might be fine with me. As long as they're, like, good cats. I'll also admit, I am not a fan of those tiny humans. No offense, but when you make tiny versions of yourselves, they're so active and ask so many questions and want to touch my long, fluffy fur. Uh-uh, no kids for me! If you think you can be patient and kind and help a grieving cat's heart mend after the loss of her beloved owner ... please come meet me. I would love to meet you, even if I'm a little reserved at first. Can't adopt but want to help out?

Hey there! I'm Cindy Lou, the perfect playmate! I'm enormous fun and super clever. I have loads of energy and love learning agility tricks. Oh, and there's a creek behind the shelter - LOVE paddling around in that! Oh gosh, I'm excited just thinking about all the fun things I can do! I sure hope my future owner enjoys hiking and having fun outdoors - that would be the best thing ever! We could go camping and run the trails and climb and OH MY GOSH that would be amazing! I would also love to play on an obstacle course in the back yard. THAT WOULD BE AMAZING TOO! WE'RE GOING TO HAVE SO MUCH FUN! I guess I need to slow down a second and actually meet my forever human first, though. Waiting can be so hard! I'm still learning how to sit and wait at doors and not pull on my leash, but I do love my treats so that encourages me to work on it. Plus there are some things my future human should know about me. I was likely abused when I was younger. I was found as a stray so my history is pretty mysterious, but I flinch and close my eyes when hands are waved around my head. I also find it really suss when someone grabs my neck. This has given me a history of nipping, which means I must be in a home without small children. It doesn't help that I have a tendency to jump up and nip your sleeve when I'm frustrated or excited - I'm a little too powerful to do that with a small kid! And finally, I really do NOT like other animals. They're stinky and stupid! This means I need to be kept under control with a harness or head collar when I go for walks in areas popular with other dog walkers, and I would benefit from a desensitization program with a professional dog trainer. For this reason, I CANNOT go to dog parks or be off leash. Sounds like a lot of conditions, doesn't it? Man, I'm sorry about that. I really just want to make a best friend that can snuggle up on a couch with or go for hikes with when the weather is beautiful. I truly am a happy girl who always has a smile in her eyes. I love snuggles and chewing on a nylabone as much as I love going for adventures. What I really want is to have an amazing human I can spend my life with. Do you think that could be you?

Introduce myself. Right. Give me a moment, I'm a little bit shy ... My name is Frodo, and I'm a dark gray kitty with some white spots. I came in to the shelter as a stray with my siblings, the hobbit kittens, back in April of 2021. Now it's my sister, Precious, and me waiting for our forever home. We love each other and take comfort having the other around, so we need a home that will take the both of us and be very patient because we're both skittish around new people. But once I get to know you (and ESPECIALLY once I know you have yummies!), I show I'm not a feral cat. I accept pets from gentle people that keep my belly full, but I'm not so keen about jumping in laps like my sister, Precious, is. I love, love, love canned food, and snuggling with my cat friends is another favorite activity of mine. I may take time to trust a new two-legged friend, but when a good home is ready to commit to Precious and me, we promise we'll be worth the wait. We would do best in a quiet home with older kids (teens and up) just because younger kids like to make a lot of noise, and we get that, it's healthy for them, but that stresses us out. Rambunctious dogs can scare us but we'll likely be fine if the dog is used to cats and gives us our own space. We love other kitties, though! If we're not cuddling with each other, we're cuddling up to other cats in the Green Room here at the shelter. We could be indoor-outdoor kitties if our new family made sure to keep us indoors-only until we trust them fully, but a catio might be a better alternative for us. Can't adopt but want to help out?

Oh my. You're so big! I'm Fünf. I'm quite a shy little girl and am still getting used to people. I find a lot of comfort in snuggling with my brother, Acht, so it would make me a lot happier to be adopted with him. Despite being skittish, I'm a nice kitten, I just need someone who will be patient and give me time to open up in a quiet home. It is hard to tell how my brother and I would be with dogs, but we seem to be curious about other cats. Really little kids might scare us, and they honestly might be disappointed that we're not ready to snuggle all the time either, so a home with mature or respectful, older children or just adults might be best for us. If you're looking to adopt a less-adoptable pet but still want a kitten, then maybe Acht and me are for you! People are still less likely to adopt black cats like us, sadly, and because we're still working on being socialized and are skittish, people often pass us up for the more snuggly and outgoing kittens.

Hello! My name is Herbert aka Herbie aka Herb, and I am a very sweet boy! When I was rescued, my sisters and I were living in an old, abandoned car! We got placed into a foster home with one of the Animal Care Staff here at the SPCA and she opened us up to a whole new world! We had sooooo much food to eat, and blankets and beds galore! She gave us beds and took care of my sister, Pooh, when she had a major health scare. We played with the other cats and dogs in our foster home and loved every second of it! It may take me a little to warm up to someone new, but I am a total lap cat. I enjoy snuggles when I want them, and I love pets from my favorite people! I absolutely love other animals, especially other cats! I am bonded to my sister Pooh. We love each other and we cannot be adopted apart from each other! I love both my sisters though, if there is anyone out there wanting the cutest trio of kittens ever, we are right here ready to go into our forever home. What's three kittens, after all, except a lot of fun! After all, if you adopt all three of us at once, the adoption fee might only come out to $400 - a single kitten's fee is normally $200!

Hello! Are you my new best friend? Let me give you kisses! MWAH! My name is Hermes. I guess I should've started with that, sorry! I'm a bit awkward, but I really am excited to meet you. I'm a super sweet dog and generally a staff and volunteer favorite here at the SPCA because I love everybody. Sometimes I love you all too much! It can be hard for me to deal with the idea of being separated from my favorite people, so I hope my future family is dog-savvy and ready to be my security and rock. My health concerns and the fact I've been in and out of shelters and homes have made me a bit of an anxious guy, so you might notice I get obsessive and overly eager to please. I would LOVE to be with someone who already has some experience with dogs and is at a point in their life where they're settled enough that they can take some time to establish a good friendship with me, then follow up with being my mentor. No doubt, I'll be a super good boy for them! So about those health concerns ... I was born wtih this thing called hypospadias, which was surgically corrected when I was younger so it means I pee from my back end, below my anus. As one volunteer puts it, I pee backwards! This causes a bit of dribbling, especially on my own legs, so I need humans to use baby wipes on me after I go, just to prevent a painful skin condition called urine scalding. Ouch! That was NOT fun! On top of that, I need my daily thyroid medication, along with an antidepressant which helps a lot with my separation anxiety, and I eat a special prescription food because of my thyroid and sensitive skin. Sorry if this makes me sound like a high-maintenance dog! Maybe if I give you more kisses, it will make it better? I am incredibly affectionate and love humans of all sizes. And although cats are terrifying, terrible creatures to me, I love little human children. I can't go home with other dogs because I was brought to the SPCA after a dogfight. Hard to walk away from a history like that! But I do love every person I meet, so I hope a family gives me a chance soon! Can't adopt but want to help out?

So before you jump in my face, give me a second and listen: my name is Jemma, and I'm an old-fashioned dog. You may wonder, what does that mean? Well, back when some of you humans were kids, you used to keep dogs to guard the house. These guard dogs would bark their heads off whenever someone came to the house, and that was accepted as how dogs were. They got put in the backyard when visitors came, and strangers, even friends of the family, mostly left them alone so they wouldn't bite you. Guard dogs like me are fine dogs who are good with our family. We don't want to be dressed up in tutus or put in strollers or have birthday parties with doggie friends in a gazebo. Nowadays, old-fashioned dogs like that are called aggressive or reactive, and let me tell, it is really hard to get adopted when people see you that way! It is true that I've bitten strangers but I've NEVER bitten my familiar handlers. In situations where other dogs might lash out and bite, such as when someone accidentally falls on them or when it's time to trim toenails, I keep my cool. I am a terrifically loyal and, dare I say, sweet friend and am a really good dog, if you would just keep me at home and keep strangers away from me. Now to make me into a different kind of dog is going to take a lot of time, patience, and commitment but is theoretically possible.  I've been evaluated by 3 trainers and have a training plan. I am a quick learner and trust my handler absolutely. I've been willing to get to know various new staff members at the SPCA without issues, and you know what? They love me just the way I am, and hope someone out there can appreciate me as I am too.  Honestly, I would hope my future family would be willing to love me for who I am and work with me. The less we have to change for each other, the more successful our relationship will be, just like all other relationships in life. And before you worry that I'm a dog that needs immediat rescuing, just remember, at least I'm happy and safe with friends right now, and that's better than being in and out of homes that aren't the right fit for me. So please consider your circumstances carefully, and also feel free to call and talk to the Animal Care Manager about me. She'll want to talk to my potential adopters in any case, and can help you decide on a strategy or maybe redirect you to another dog that could use your help, if I'm not the right fit for you.

Hey there, new furriend! Do you love black cats? If you don't know the answer to that, you should come meet me and you'll learn you TOTALLY love us black or tuxedo kitties. I'm super friendly and loving and I'll greet you with my tiny little chirps. A good Samaritan found me as a stray wandering around and brought me to the SPCA, where they microchipped me, got me neutered (WHUUUUT???), and poked me with these shot things so I could be protected against rabies or whatever. It sounds awful but actually I like the people here. The attention is great, and they tell me that eventually, someone will come in and choose to adopt me. Being adopted sounds super exciting to me! I'm only about two years old and have a lot of life to live. I'd probably be happy indoors or as an outdoors/indoors cat. I haven't exactly revealed how I feel about other cats or little kids yet, but so far I've been fine with whatever wanders by my cage, especially if it's going to be nice to me. I love people watching especially and am a super curious boy! When I saw a dog, though, I got all puffy and aggressive. I don't think I'm gonna like those creatures much! Maybe with other animals, slower introductions would be best for a kitty like me. Because I can be a little sassy, any young children in the house should have a good sense of humor about animals - I can be very playful and may not be the best fit for a home that needs calm pets for sensitive children. Hopefully you'll come by sometime and meet me for yourself!
