Charlie Pride's Story...
Charlie Pride's Story...
OKOKWe all can't look like Clark Gable or Channing Tatum for those of you who are younger than 30! And after all, a rugged demeanor just indicates that you've lived life to the fullest, right? Although Charlie evidently has experienced a few tussles in his life, he is extremely friendly and only wants to be everyone's friend. This sweet boy is full of purrs the moment you approach him and then rolls over on his back, attempting to win you over with this show of trust.
*** Another thing to know about Kimba is that he is FIV positive. FIV is a lentivirus (or "slow virus") that breaks down a cats immune system. It CANNOT be spread to humans or to any other species other than felines. What's even better is that FIV is not easily spread between cats either. Casual contact (playing, snuggling, litter boxes, water and food bowls) does not spread the virus. It's generally transmitted when free roaming, intact male cats carrying the virus bite and attack other cats. FIV+ cats tend to be the sweetest cats of all because they're the real lovers, not the fighters. Most FIV infected cats show no symptoms for years and maintain a good quality of life with the proper care (housing them indoors, spaying/neutering, feeding them a nutritional/balanced diet, stress management and regular vet visits.) Basically they need the same things that any other cat would to remain healthy. Also, find out more about FIV by watching our video!

Our Adoption Process...
We ask potential adopters to fill out a matchmaker form. When they are ready to adopt an animal and the form and interview process indicates a good match, we have the adopter sign an adoption contract promising that the animal will receive good physical and emotional care. Fees vary and we often have adoption specials. Fees for senior pets are sponsored. Otherwise, dogs are $100, puppies $150 and up, cats are $75, kittens are $95.
