Important Note

Daybreak is best friends with Midnight. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!

Daybreak and Midnight will guarantee double the love and double the fun to their new family! These sweet 14-year-old kitties also have double the toes as they're both polydactyls! Over the past few months they've made tons of friends with our youth program, "Book Buddies," where kids come in and read to our child-friendly cats. In fact, Daybreak and Midnight are our longest-standing participants! These handsome brothers are bonded, meaning they must be adopted together, and each have different medical needs. Daybreak has hyperthyroidism and a heart condition which will require long-term medication and follow up echocardiograms. Regardless of having these medical conditions, both Daybreak and Midnight are undoubtedly young at heart! If you're interested in adopting these two and sharing their golden years with them, call us or come visit them today!

**Thanks to a generous donor, my adoption fees have been paid!**

Please call 703-746-4774 or email for more information and come visit me at the shelter today!
