A Charlotte, NC 28211 rescue helping to find loving homes for cats.
1 - 11 of 11 Adoptable Pets at This Shelter
We are in Mecklenburg county, Charlotte, NC. However since we focus on education and outreach it is not uncommon for us to be helping a kitty in another area. We also have some resources to help transport if you are the perfect match for one of our kitties. So don't let distance be an issue.
We specialize in healthy, fiv+ kitties. But do have other kitties in our program as well. Fiv is an immune deficiency which kitties get from fighting. Usually unneutered males fighting for territory, food sources and females. Once fixed and loved and fed daily the need to fight for these things disappears. Most of our fiv+ kitties are fostered with other non fiv kitties, and proven to be friendly.
There are lots of myths and misinformation about fiv. To simply it, an fiv kitty is a kitty with a lower immune system. If they get hurt or sick it could take them longer to heal. Fiv does not cause disease, it is a secondary issue of how your kitty will react to primary issue. Most fiv kitties die from geriatric issues without any more vet care than other kitties.

We are a foster home based rescued. Therefore, the majority of our animals are in peoples homes. This is perfect for adopters who have very specific needs on the animal they adopt. We know our animals well, and what types of homes we feel they will thrive best.
We are a small operation. Donations are welcome. Please email and we can put you in touch with various ways to donate. The best is to send in payment directly to our vet accounts.
