Facts about Brier

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Orange Or Red (Mostly)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: C0942
  • Hair: Short
Brier is a lovely, somewhat shy, 2 year old girl. She and her B group friends belonged to a woman who unfortunately had dementia, and didn't manage to care for the cats very well; Brier is one of the most social of the group, and she will become your devotee if you tempt her with kitty treats!

Due to their shy nature, the kitties in this room don't get as much attention from visitors as the more outgoing cats. Brier will be a wonderful companion for anyone with the patience to let her love them at her own pace. Brier would do fine as an only cat, or would love to go home with one of her friends, like Brooklyn (the round-faced girl in the video with her), or one of the seriously camera shy kitties Benton, Bellevue, and Beaux. While all these cats were used to going in and out of their former home (through a window that was left open), if you want your new friend(s) to stick around, you will want to keep them strictly inside for at least a couple of months, until they are totally comfortable with you and their new home environment.

These cats are perfect examples of what rescuing a pet really means; if you can open your home and heart to a pair or threesome, we'd love to see Brier go with one or two of the most shy in the group. The second mouth to feed won't be much trouble at all... while Brier is likely to be sitting on your bed and sharing purrs with you quickly, the "emergency backup cat" (or two) will mostly keep to themselves for quite a while... they all have great litterbox habits and are quiet and easy care kitties. We don't recommend them for homes with toddlers or particularly noisy, boisterous children, but older children that can understand and empathize with a shy kitty should do just fine with them. Of the five, Brier and Brooklyn are pretty close to normal cats already, thanks to the efforts of our wonderful volunteers! The other three will benefit from being placed with either of the less shy gals, to give them a brave leader cat to emulate.

All pets arrive spayed/neutered, dewormed, microchipped and vaccinated. Adoption fee for Brier is suggested minimum $20 (more gratefully accepted). All pets are placed with a 30-day money-back trial period, to give pet and family enough time to discover any unknown allergies or other conflicts. Can't come to Republic? Don't let that stop you! We have monthly transports to both the Seattle area and Spokane, delivering adopted pets to their new owners. If you can add a little to your donation to help us cover our volunteer driver's expenses, that would be great!

Donate to Our Shelter...

Come Meet Our Pets...

The shelter is located at 49 W Curlew Lake Rd, Republic; we schedule appointments to meet the pets.

We do transports of adopted pets to the Seattle and Spokane areas at least once each month, and can sometimes schedule transports to other locations in WA, ID, OR, MT as needed.

Our Adoption Process...

Our minimum adoption donations are indicated on each pet's listing.

The first step toward adoption is to fill out the application, which we can email to you or you can find on our website:

Filling out the application in no way commits you to adopting - it simply enables us to get you preapproved, in case you decide you want to adopt. If you are then approved and offered a pet placement, you may always refuse the placement. If you accept a placement, we always give you three days (for puppies and kittens) or thirty days (for adult dogs and cats) to live with each other; if during that time you decide that your new pet simply won't work out, for any reason, we will accept the pet back with a full refund of your adoption donation. You could either return the pet directly to us, or have it picked up on our next transport! I must say, we are very proud of our successful placement record - we really work hard to make sure you and your pet will be a great match.

If you are out of our immediate area, we ask that you email some photos of your home, yard (including fence if you have one), any "animal-specific" areas (such as a dog run, cat tree, or sleeping area) and any other pets you currently own. Sometimes photos enable us to skip the pre-adoption home visit, which can speed things up considerably for out of area adoptions! For the vet reference, either a vet who is seeing your current pets, or a vet who saw a former pet, is acceptable. If this is your first pet ever, congratulations on joining the pet world! :-D We will consider your application without a vet reference, but we would like to know what vet you think you will use for your pet. Without a vet reference, please be sure to provide at least two strong personal references who would know how you are with animals.

If we have an upcoming transport scheduled to your area, we will make every effort to process and approve your application in time for the transport.
