When we received an urgent plea from the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) to help out with some of the overcrowded shelters in NC that were affected by Hurricane Matthew in October, we knew we had to help. We took in 15 animals that had to be moved so room could be made for animals that were displaced from the disaster. All will spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped before they leave our shelter.

Who's that little bundle of fur chasing that toy on feet that move faster than a cartoon coyote's? It's a bird... It's a plane... No, it's Bertha! No bigger than a minute, Bertha is one of several kittens who came to us from North Carolina after Hurricane Matthew forced local shelters to reach to us out when they became overcrowded with displaced animals. She is definitely a player who is sure to make you laugh out loud as she dashes across the room after a mouse or leaps in the air in pursuit of a string toy. This friendly, curious girl would love to find a home with a family who is willing to indulge her need for play. But rest assured, when the games are over, she'll be ready to cuddle up and give you some love. Stop in soon and meet this tiny athlete. She'd like nothing better than to be on your team!
*Per JSAC policy, puppies and kittens under 6 months will not be adopted to families with children under the age of 6 years.
