Cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
There are cats here who are "normal" and will require only the "normal" adjustment period in a new home. But we have far more who need special homes - homes with people who are willing to give lots of patience and love. Most Winnie's Wish cats were strays; some were even members of feral colonies. If you are a person who isn't just looking for a pet, but is willing to open your home and your heart to a cat who might not "give back" right away, then you've definitely come to the right place!
Our organization is called Winnieís Wish for a very special reason. In August 2010, we found a kitten (or rather she found us). She was in absolutely terrible shape, but we hoped to bring her back to health and give her the kind of life she deserved. She didnít get that chance. She passed away and left us heartbroken. Her name was Winnie.
Winnie seemed to touch so many hearts. We launched an adoption campaign in Winnieís name. Winnie wished for a forever home. And the cats in our cathouse (who would have been Winnieís housemates) also wish for forever homes. The mission here is to get as many of these rescued sweethearts into loving homes as possible. Please help us get these babies placed. We can only take in more needy kitties when homes are found for the ones with us now. And remember - if you adopt a cat from us, it opens a spot for another homeless soul who will be able to live in comfort until his or her own home comes along. Help us keep the revolving door open for the many more out there who need us.
*Please note: We are only interested in indoor homes. We want these kitties to become full-fledged family members.
WE WILL WORK WITH YOU TO ARRANGE TRANSPORTATION TO JUST ABOUT ANYWHERE. SO DON'T LET DISTANCE KEEP YOU FROM ADOPTING ONE OF THESE GREAT CATS.

Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a cat or kitten versus getting cats for sale or kittens for sale from a cat breeder? When someone is breeding kittens, they are creating new cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of cat or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a cat for sale from a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a cat or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
