My story

You may recognize this handsome boy as Flame🔥 -- featured not all that long ago and then adopted! Unfortuately, he was returned soon after.😢 It seemed he became quickly overwhelmed in that particular home environment and wasn't exhibiting his best self.

Now, he is in a quiet and doting kitty foster home where he rules the roost -- and they are seeing his true colors in all the best ways!🌈

"Just letting you know that Flame seems very happy here. He has staked out some comfy spots in the sun and seems pretty interested in hanging out near us, although no extended lap sitting sessions yet. We kept him in the office the first night, but he seems very well behaved so now has full privileges. He also has been doing quite a bit of running up and down the stairs and is actually quite playful. We are enjoying him. You keep sending us the special ones!"

Let's make the second time a charm! Call our adoption team (831) 465-5000 x 10 or 13 to learn more OR fill out and Adopter's Profile to get things started!🐱

Additional adoption info

In response to COVID-19, and the current social distancing rules, all of our animals are now being housed in foster homes and our adoption procedures have changed. Please read the following ADOPTION STEPS on our website for further details! **Please Note: Most of our adoptions are beginning with a foster-to-adopt period, and because of this, we are temporarily unable to consider applications from households outside the counties of: Santa Cruz, San Benito, San Mateo, Santa Clara, and Monterey. If you rent, please have a copy of your lease or a letter from your landlord that states you can have a pet(s) ready. If you’re adopting a dog, introduce your future friend to any other dogs in the family (dog adoptions only).
