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.

Cute as a button... that's Bristol, one of several kittens who came to us from North Carolina after Hurricane Matthew forced local shelters to reach out to us when they became overcrowded with displaced animals. An adorable brown tabby with white markings and a sweet little pink nose, this girl might be a bit timid when you first meet her, but before very long, her natural curiosity will bring her to your side, where she'll let you know how much she likes having her chin scratched. She likes nothing better than a bit of frisky play with her kitten friends, and would be delighted to find a home with another young kitty. But she'd also be fine as your one and only, as long as you promised to give her plenty of playtime. So come in soon and meet little Bristol. She's waiting to be your new best friend.
*Per JSAC policy, puppies and kittens under 6 months will not be adopted to families with children under the age of 6 years.
