Barton is a sweet but shy girl. She likes head rubs and will make a great cat once she has time to get used to you.
Adopters/Rescues: Rescues interested in pulling cats need to contact firstname.lastname@example.org or the shelter at 606-784-4930. Transport assistance is limited. The shelter cannot return long distance calls- shelter staff are often busy, please be patient and call back if no one is able to answer. Shelter email is email@example.com. Shelter email is not continuously monitored. Best way to contact us is via phone or stopping by the shelter.
This cat is at the Tri County Animal Shelter. Please call 606-784-4930 or go there directly to adopt...and do it quickly. Time is of the essence for the cats at the shelter. Cats will only be given 5 days to find homes and can be euthanized at any time after that point. Those with health issues and frightened/feral cats may be euthanized at any time. Volunteers do their best to keep cat listings updated, but not all cats may be posted due to time constraints. Cat adoption fee at the shelter is $55, which includes spay/neuter surgery, rabies vaccination, and first FVRCP vaccination.
Cat personality is assessed by shelter staff and volunteers and is best guess. As we will only have 5 days now to assess an animal it is very likely that their personality will change. We do not know how these cats will act outside of the shelter and are very limited in how we can assess behavior. It is highly recommended that you and all your family members stop by and meet a cat prior to adopting. Most cats have no background information so we cannot predict how a cat will react to different situations.
After adoption it is recommended you get your cat checked by your veterinarian and discuss combo testing (FeLV/FIV), vaccinations, microchipping, fecals (to check for parasites) and flea/tick prevention. It is not recommended to let your new cat interact with your current cats until it has been checked and deemed healthy by a veterinarian.

Please note: In most cases, the breed mix is our best guess based on the size/appearance of the dog/cat. Most of the dogs/cats we get are strays so their history is unknown.
Rescues: We are rescue friendly and would love to have your help! We have transport assistance to northeastern states, Ohio, Huntington WV, or Lexington KY. Can meet Pilots N Paws flights in Morehead KY or Huntington WV. Can work with your transport coordinator for runs starting in Morehead KY or Huntington WV. Please email us for a rescue application.

Dogs in the shelter receive their first DAPPv vaccination upon arrival. Rabies vaccination and spay/neuter surgery are done for the adoption fee. Additional vetting is available upon request and the adopter must pay the additional cost in advance. Please speak to shelter staff about any extra vetting you want done. Local adopters: Please note vetting is NOT done on site at the shelter and the adoption fee must be paid to the shelter before the dog is transported to the vet to receive vetting. Rabies vaccine and spay/neuter are mandatory prior to being allowed to take the dog home.
