My story

Hi folks.  I’m called Short Tail, for obvious reasons.  I’m an orange and white tabby bobtail boy, probably a Manx mix.  I get along fine with some other cats but not all of them.  I love sitting in laps and getting head rubs.  If a lap is not available, then the screened porch is my favorite habitat.  The chipmunks, squirrels, and birds provide endless entertainment for me.  I think they love to taunt me because they know I can’t get them.  I'd love a home where I get lots of human attention--maybe you work from home...

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Cat adoption fee is $125, and $175 for dogs. We attempt to match the animal's characteristics with the family and their lifestyle. We require an application form, which becomes part of the adoption contract, a personal or phone interview, veterinarian reference if applicable, home visit, and an additional agreement about how the animal will be treated. Cats must be indoors only, not declawed. Dogs must be fenced or leashed when outdoors and treated as part of the family--indoors as much as possible, and always at night. Adopter agrees to provide regular veterinary care, and to return the animal to us if they ever give it up. We reserve the right to check on the animal's welfare from time to time, with appropriate notice.

As a volunteer group, we do not have a facility. Our animals reside in foster homes. We show them at local events and by appointment.

More about this rescue

We are an all-volunteer, 501(c)3 nonprofit rescue group, with emphasis on mixed-breed dogs and cats. We adopt primarily from our local animal shelter, although we occasionally take in hardship cases. We also assist individuals in our area by advertising on our website animals they need to rehome, if the animals have been spayed/neutered. We donate pet food to a local food bank as well as to the county senior center's pet food distribution. We fund free spay/neuter and vaccinations through a local veterinary service for low-income families. We gratefully accept donations, and we need volunteers for many events. More than anything, we need foster homes.
