Facts about Didi

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tortoiseshell
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Didi was the only kitten in a large feral community. She hung around with an adult cat who became sick and then disappeared. It was December, and the dumpster where the cats hung out was in the parking lot of a restaurant. When the old fryer grease was set beside the dumpster, Didi would curl on top of it to absorb any remaining heat. After being trapped she was taken to our vet, who said she was far older than she looked (4 months instead of the 6 weeks she appeared). But once inside our heated rooms she thrived, and made friends with the other cats. Didi was named by the tech staff at the vet's (D.D. for " Dumpster Diver"). She is now 11 years old and still waiting for her forever home. Questions? Call Safe Shelter at 301 478 3206 any time.

About Safe Shelter Inc.

About Our Shelter...

Safe Shelter has been up and running for 11 years. I worked for a year at a large, long-running, widely respected no-kill shelter and this inspired me to try it myself. It is a small, low-budget operation that could really use some volunteer and foster help!

Come Meet Our Pets...

We have just started occationally showing animals at Tractor Supply in Lavale MD. The big fundraiser each year is a yard sale in Flintstone and if I have enough volunteers I try to bring some of the shelter animals to show.

Our Adoption Process...

Potential adopters physically meet the animal, and me. The person or couple is interviewed in person, a vet reference is checked (if possible), and I visit the home, tour inside and outside, ask any additional questions necessary, meet any live-in family members yet unmet, and sleep on my final decision. The next day I will call with a decision - either way. The adoption fee for a dog is $50, for a cat, $30. The adoption contract includes a takeback policy - in effect for the entire life of the animal- and the right to visit, with notice, and to raclaim the animal in the case of neglect or abuse.
