Think we need to do a boosted post for Rudy ! He has lost a lot of weight and I fear he is shutting down. He needs a foster or adopter as soon as possible. He came weighing over 11.5 pounds and was down to 8.2 pounds last week when I weighed him. :( He is a sweet cat who needs out! I can pay the $20. I can leave money at the shelter if that will work for you.


Sherry is one of the softest kitties you are likely to meet! Her soft, silkly medium-length coat is a treat to stroke and pet. Sherry loves to get some love and attention from you, and if you aren't giving her your attention, she might just call you out to remind you not to forget about her. Sherry is a great cat! She is affectionate, she is playful, she seems to get along well with cats and dogs and kids! What more could you ask for?! If you are looking for a wonderful cat for your family, the please come and meet sweet, soft Sherry! She has been overlooked for far too long.


Our Carmel is as soft and sweet as the treat he is named after! This guy is a real lover! He has won over many visitors and volunteers in the time he has been at APL. You had better come quick to meet this handsome ginger as he will likely be snatched up quickly! Carmel is very affectionate and loves to rub up against you just asking for some pets and attention. He seems to get along fine with other cats in the free roam room and should do well in most any loving home, with or without other non-aggressive pets or kids. Carmel is one of the sweetest fellas you are likely to meet. Whoever adopts this ginger gent is a lucky family. Oh, and did we mention that Carmel is front declawed too?


Bambi is a sweet, petite, older gal looking for a loving home to spend her retirement years. Bambi is a tiny little cat with a cute scratchy meow to greet you with. She is really adorable! Bambi is estimated to be an older gal (maybe as old as 15!) No cat should have to spend their golden years in a shelter. Please consider adopting an older cat. They make great companions and have more years of loving left in them! Some cats can live to be 20 to even 25 years old! Please come meet our lovely little Bambi and give her a loving home with a soft bed to grow old in. She seems to do okay around other calm, non-aggressive animals.

Sophie is a beautiful grey and white gal with a medium-length fur coat. Sophie lost her home due to no fault of her own and is anxiously awaiting being in a quieter home where she can roam and relax and enjoy cat life again. Sophie was overwhelmed by all of the many cats at the shelter and often hid at first. She is getting used to the place and is coming out of her shell a bit. But Sophie does not enjoy sharing her space with so many other cats. She would likely do fine in a home with another cat or two who were non-aggressive and each had space to be on their own. Sophie is a beautiful cat who does not demand much of your time or attention. She enjoys doing her own thing, resting and relaxing in a soft spot.

Maxwell is a laid-back, low-maintenance cat who won't demand much of your time or attention. He enjoys pets, but also enjoys just resting and relaxing and doing his own thing. Maxwell would make a good companion for you in your low to mid-energy level home. Please give our Maxwell a chance at forever, won't you?


Rudy is a gorgeous, older, long-haired black and white cat who lost his home due to no fault of his own when his owner had to go to a nursing home. Rudy was quite shy at first and is still overwhelmed around so very many cats at the shelter. Rudy is a super sweet fella who enjoys being pet, brushed, sitting in your lap, and keeping you company. Rudy is a real sweetheart! But Rudy is losing hope at the shelter. He seems sad and depressed and is losing weight.
