My story

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

Meet Slash, a nine-year-old male with a sleek short coat that glistens against the sun. His large stature carries an air of dignity, accentuated by eyes that have seen much, yet still flicker with kindness. Although his appearance tells tales of past adventures, evidenced by a few noble scars, Slash's heart remains untouched by time. This distinguished gentleman exudes a friendly demeanor, inviting you with a soft purr and a nudge of his head, seeking companionship and a loving home where his serene presence can be cherished. Neutered and composed, Slash promises to fill his new abode with grace and quiet affection.

Slash's adoption fee will be $50. He is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and treated for parasites.If you are interested in adopting this pet, please go to to complete an application.
