Barley's Story...
Barley (DSH, orange tabby 5 to 7 year old male) He arrived at the Shelter as an unwanted stray – blind in his right eye, infested with ear mites resulting in bloodied ears and unneutered. There he remained for almost a month with no one showing any interest in this poor frightened fellow. They were unable to see his potential just waiting to be given a chance. And that chance came when FUR swooped in and rescued him. Of course, he wasn’t quite sure if it was a rescue because there was a trip to the vet first! This big sweet, laid back boy didn’t take long to figure out that he had hit the jackpot. He quickly fit in with the rest of the general population and followed us around everywhere. Next to being loved after missing out for so long, food is his passion. And it is only natural that he shows a bit of possessiveness when it comes to meal times. After all, going so long without knowing where the next meal is coming from is a hard habit to break! Come meet Barley and let him steal your heart too!

Our shelter is a no cage, no kill sanctuary. Most of the cats in our care are here because they was no other alternative and for many it was their last hope. All of our cats receive love, affection and attention everyday. Every volunteer we have spends personal time with each and every one of them so we can tell you in detail all about their personality when you come to adopt. The more we can adopt out the more we can go out and rescue.

Why Adoption is a Great Option
