My story

Hi, my name is Valentina!  I’m an older lady who was found living on the streets just this year.  The staff guesses that I’m about 13 years old, but I’ve never been good at keeping track of time.  A nice lady had been feeding me for a couple of months, but she already had several cats, so she brought me here so I could be warm, and find a nice home.  I had a lot of mats in my fur, so they had to shave me when I came in.  I really wasn’t impressed with that.  But I have to admit, I feel a lot better, not so itchy any more.  My mouth has hurt for a long time, and here they tell me I have bad teeth.  They did one dental, but I’m going to need a second one in a couple months to fix the rest of my mouth.  Everyone here is really nice, they give me all sorts of food and attention.  They checked my blood before doing my dental, and they say I have early kidney disease.  I don’t know how you humans figure such things out.  But I’m telling you that my kidney’s feel fine.  I will need to eat a special diet, and someday I may need more treatments to support my kidney’s, but I plan to live for a long time yet.  Come in and meet me today, I would love to come home with you!

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

If you are looking to adopt a cat, we encourage you to visit our shelter. There are no scheduled appointments at CCS – simply drop by during the shelter’s open hours. When you visit the shelter seeking to adopt, a Shelter Assistant will greet you. They will ask you to fill out a “Cat Finder Assistance” form that gives an idea of the type of cat you are seeking. If you have children, we require they visit the shelter with you. Also, renters should come prepared with a copy of their lease indicating cats are allowed, or their landlord’s phone number so we can verify pet allowances. Once you have found a cat that suits you – which may take more than one visit – a Shelter Assistant will have you fill out an adoption application. You will then go through the adoption process to learn more about the specific cat you have chosen and to review the adoption contract. Adoption paperwork usually takes about 30-45 minutes to complete and review. They have undergone a physical examination upon entry into the shelter, and Dewormer and FVRCP vaccinations. If they are over 4 months they will have received a rabies vaccination. If they are over 12 weeks, they will have been snap tested for FIV, FeLV and Heartworm. All adoptable cats and kittens have been spayed or neutered. All cats and kittens leave the shelter with a 14-day health care assistance plan, a collar and ID tag, and an implanted microchip used to help return lost pets to their homes. We also provide a cardboard carrier to take the cat or kitten home. Adoption Fees Our adoption fees are: $150 Adoption fee for one kitten $ 75 Adult cats 6 months and older $50 FeLV and FIV cats Senior for Senior Free adoption for people 60 years or older who adopt a cat 10 years or older
