Pickles' Story
My family moved and left me behind in an apartment parking lot. That was fine. I like living outside. But then, the apartment manager called Animal Control. Not good! The woman who had been feeding me grabbed me and took me to the Howard County Cat Club. I'm grateful to her for saving my life, and I sort of like it here. But I really want my own home again so I can be free to roam and not have to live with so many cats. Are you looking for a buddy and mousetrap? I could be your guy! Just contact the Howard County Cat Club to meet me.

About Howard County Cat Club - no kill shelter

About Our Rescue Group...

The Howard County Cat Club is a registered 501 (c)(3) nonprofit no kill cat rescue. Our mission is to keep cats out of shelters because we believe that no cat deserves to live in a cage, or to be put to death because it is no longer wanted or in the way. We operate a behavior hotline to help cats and their human companions resolve their differences. We advise people who are trying to place their no-longer-wanted cats in loving new homes, and we foster cats in our "group home" when they have no place else to go.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are not having adoption shows at the moment, but we invite you to our shelter to meet our cats. Please call or write for an appointment.

Our Adoption Process...

Potential forever families must complete an application and sign a contract. Our contract stipulates that you will NOT declaw and that the cat will be returned to us if things don't work out. Cats who are adopted together must be returned together -- they may not be separated. Our contract also stipulates that you will feed wet food -- we do not want our cats to have dry food-only diets. We DO adopt to safe, responsible indoor/outdoor homes. And we almost always have ferals who must be relocated to barn homes.
