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.
10-20-16 4-5 months old. This adorable little urchin is 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. A long-haired brown tabby with a serious face and a mouth outlined with adorable gray 'lipstick,' Beatrix will bring a smile to your face as soon as you see her. She may be sitting daintily in her cage with her paws crossed, or wrestling energetically with her toy mouse... either way, she's sure to make a good impression. Though she may be a bit shy and run away at first, this little lady wants to be caught and she'll be ready to enjoy some gentle petting as soon as she trusts you. She's waiting patiently for a new home where she can curl up in someone’s arms and feel safe forever. Please don't make her wait too long!
*Per JSAC policy, puppies and kittens under 6 months will not be adopted to families with children under the age of 6 years.
