Important Note

Summer is best friends with Splash. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
Hi, I’m Summer, a gorgeous orange-and-brown tabby girl with sad, soulful eyes. I was born outside and lived with a group of cats until I was about eight months old. While I was outside I became pregnant with my first litter of kittens. When my kittens started to come all did not go well and they had to be born by C-section. That was hard for me and at first I didn’t seem quite sure how to be a mom, but through the weeks I’ve gained trust and confidence. I am still a very shy kitty in new situations, but once you give me a chance to get comfortable with my surroundings, I'm a very sweet girl and will come up to you meowing for attention and rolling over to show my belly. I will need a patient, quiet person that will be willing to work with me to help me feel safe and comfortable. I am a wonderful mother to my kitten Splash. We have lived together for six months and would love to find a home together.

Please apply online and ask my foster mom Kelsey all about me.

Our Adoption Process...

Prior to adoption, every CARE cat/kitten has received a thorough exam from a veterinarian, has tested negative for FIV/Felv (except as otherwise noted), been spayed/neutered, dewormed, given flea preventative, and been inoculated against distemper. Rabies vaccine is given if the feline is over 4 months. Any other desirable medical attention has also been provided. Also, each cat/kitten has spent its rescued time in a private home in foster care being loved and assessed for temperament and personality, needs, likes and dislikes.

After your approval by our volunteers, a legal contract is signed with an adoption donation attached (this donation helps defray the medical costs incurred); and, you receive a free vet office visit at a participating vet within the first week.
Adoption Fee is a Donation.
