Important Note

Lacie is best friends with Cream Puff. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
Meet beautiful Lacie! She is a very special feline - she has a disorder called Cerebellar Hypoplasia (CH). CH is a non-progressive neurological disorder - meaning it will never get worse but never get better. It does appear to improve as kittens grow into adults because they learn to adapt and compensate, and they also get stronger as they get older. CH is most commonly caused by the mother being exposed to a virus called panleukopenia while pregnant, and the result is that the part of the brain that controls motor skills is under-developed. CH is also known as Wobbly Kitten Syndrom because of the wobbly "drunken sailor" strut these kittens have. To learn more about CH, go to

Lacie loves to be held and is very, very sweet! She is also playful - loves jingle balls and anything that dangles in front of her! We want Lacie and Cream Puff to be adopted together as the level of CH is very similar and they are very close. They are special cats who will need to go to a special home: the adoptive home must be carpeted because it will be easier for them to walk around. The main living area should be on one level, as neither Lacie or Cream Puff will be able to go up or down stairs safely. Both Lacie and Cream Puff use the litter box, and eat and drink from bowls. Lacie has been vet checked, spayed, vaccinated, de-wormed, and tested negative for FIV/Feluk. Call 507-451-4512 to meet Lacie in her foster home. Her adoption fee is $100. (C&AL)

About Steele County Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

We all know that kittens/puppies have a lot of spunk and energy and are perfect for some people. However, by adopting a more mature animal, you bypass the active kitten/puppy phase and it allows you to take the guess work out of what your pet will be like after he/she does some growing.

The Steele County Humane Society, Incorporated is a not for profit organization dedicated to:
* Providing quality foster care for homeless cats and dogs.
* Encouraging the adoption of homeless cats and dogs.
* Encouraging spaying and neutering to reduce the pet overpoplulation.

We rely on the love and care of volunteers to foster our animals until a permanent home can be found and are in desperate need of people willing to open their hearts and homes to these pets in need. Please call 507-451-4512 for more information.
