Pictures are from 9/12/2021.  Opie is a 2 year old friendly, playful, curious lap cat that is incredibly athletic, and leaps and tumbles.  He is neutered, and vaccinated.  He was one of several cats that turned up on our farm when an abandoned house was torn down next to our property.  Opie kept trying to get in our house, and finally walked into a cage for us to take him inside.  Opie would be good paired up with Felix, who shares a room with him, and adopted him.  He is leash trained, and likes to go for walks as well as climb trees.  We prefer that Opie be an inside cat, except when he is walked on a leash outside.

$50 Adoption fee.

Adoption application

Go meet their pets

It depends on who has the pet. We don't advertise our address to keep people from dumping animals on our road anymore than they usually do, especially since this is also where we live. I like to visit with a person on the phone first before letting them come meet the pet.

More about this rescue

This is a small animal rescue for cats and dogs. I have several foster homes in various areas, and I also do courtesy postings for people who need help finding a home for their pet, which is about 80% successful. The pet doesn't have to enter a rescue or shelter and the owner is contacted, so they decide who their pet goes to. If a person can't send me pictures, and they don't live too far away, I will go and videotape the pet myself to place pictures on the internet, or have a volunteer get the pictures. There have been a few pets that haven't been able to find a home through this service, but it depends on what the pet is and who is looking on the internet. When we have space available we take transfers from a local kill animal shelter. We also step in and help people who find themselves with multiple animals and no way to pay to get them fixed. Usually I will get all the females fixed to get their circumstances under control, and in some cases I will also help with donated food when I have extra. If they want to find homes for some of the many pets they have accumulated, then I will place their pictures on the internet for them. We don't euthanize unless a pet is seriously ill.
