My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Its hard to believe but Pepper arrived at our rescue over 4 years ago. She had been taken care of along with a number of other cats by a kind person who was working in rescuing a number of neighborhood cats up until the time a house fire caused her to evacuate. Most of the cats were rescued and brought to our rescue where they were eventually adopted into loving homes. Pepper presented as the most challenging of the group as she was extremely wary of people. For a long time, Pepper steered as clear of people as she could; however, she has made some progress. She will come and play with her favorite toys and on occasion will allow limited petting. Pepper requires a home with experienced cat people who understand her fear and allow her to be Pepper. She has been vet checked, has tested negative for feline leukemia and FIV, is spayed and is up to date on her vaccinations. During her time at our rescue, Pepper has seen and interacted with many cats and seems to get along fine with all. She has never been observed with dogs.

If you are interested in meeting Pepper and believe you can provide the type of home she needs, please visit and complete an interest in adoption application.

Adoption Guidelines:

- You must be 21 years or older.
- All animals in your home must be up-to-date on vaccinations and spayed / neutered.

- We do not place animals as gifts for others.
- Adopted animals must be kept as indoor companions.

We aim to provide high quality care for the well-being of rescued cats and dogs until they are placed in forever homes. All animals are regularly vet checked, fully vaccinated, spayed / neutered and microchipped. They are routinely treated for fleas and worms as well as any medical issues.

Except for a limited number of cats fostered at our headquarters, our adoptable animals are cared for in loving volunteer foster homes. We get to know the pets’ personalities and needs very well, striving to make the best possible match for both animals and adopters.
