Opal didn’t deserve to end up homeless in her golden years, but nevertheless, at age 14+ this sweet and petite gray tabby girl ended up in a local open shelter where her chances of finding a loving home were more than challenging. OAR to Opal’s rescue. Lovely Opal is as precious as the stone she was named after. She is unique, delicate, and the inspiration of love and hope. Opal is so thankful to have a safe, indoor/out-of-the-weather place to stay where she can show potential adopters that she really is worthy of love, kindness, and a true forever home. Opal spent some time in a foster home healing from her rough time while living outdoors. Opal’s foster mom reports that within just a few days she learned to trust her, and all was good in her world. Opal enjoyed spending her days snoozing and looking out foster mom’s bay window dreaming that this was the life she would have from here on out. Even at Opal’s mature age, there is still plenty of spunk under that furcoat; she loves a good game of romp. Opal purrs and purrs with delight while being brushed and petted, but of note, her tummy is currently off limits. She just ‘purr’furs human hands not venture to that area (at least currently; that might change in the future). In her foster home, Opal tolerated the resident kitties, but wanted just a little distance between them. That, too, could change. Being a homeless, senior kitty took its toll on Opal, but with the love of a human companion in a forever home Opal still has much to offer, and will be proof that when it comes to love, age doesn’t matter. Please pay a visit with Opal and you will see what a gem she truly is. Love changes everything...

Our Adoption Process...

We have many cats and kittens looking for wonderful homes! All of our cats are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, tested for FIV and Feline Leukemia, and microchipped. Adoption fee is $50. Because we like for our cats to go home in pairs, we have a standing 2 for 1 adoption special -- you can adopt 2 cats for one fee of $50.

Meet some of our cats and kittens, and fill out an application today! An OAR representative will get in touch with you to discuss your application. We do require a phone screening before an adoption so if you are coming to visit the cats and hope to take a cat or kitten home that day, fill out and submit the application at least a day beforehand so we can pre-approve your adoption.

As of 3/7/12, our adoption policy requires that the adopters of our cats not declaw the cats, no matter what the cat's age. We will, with our adoption counselors' help, provide potential adopters with information on alternatives to declawing. We also sometimes have previously declawed cats up for adoption. These can be a good alternative for adopters who are adamant about declawing.
