Story
All gray kitties. Many are called Russian Blue. We can't guarantee any pedigrees but this gray kitty is absolutely gorgeous. She was living in a colony in a trailer park and almost all of the cats were sick. She came in with two others and all required immediate medical care. Pilgrim is quite shy and tends to run away from attention; however, once in your arms, she settles in and accepts love. She is so excited when we come in with their wet food trays - no shyness shows once the food shows up. It's so cute. She is a kitty that will require her new family to give her some time to settle in and warm up so probably wouldn't be the best fit for a family with small children but we believe she will make a wonderful pet given a little patience and that precious chance that all shelter animals need.

Story
In late July, it was near the end of the day at ARF, it had been a washout day with storms. A young lady came in distraught holding a crumpled up, soaking wet kitten. She had been driving in the storm and the kitten ran out in front of her car and she hit it. She rushed it to a local vet where they took x-rays and gave an antibiotic injection. This young lady wasn't prepared for the aftercare so she brought the kitten to ARF. We were out of space and knew that this little guy needed round-the-clock care. Jenny, who runs the Catty Shack loaded the kitten up and brought him home. She named him Herbert but soon would have the nickname of Little Biscuit. The first night was touch and go. The little kitten wouldn't open his eyes or move so Jenny gave fluids through the night and gently syringe-fed around his swollen face. After 24hrs, Herbert stood up on his own, crawled into Jenny's lap, and instantly started making biscuits. That moment we both knew everything would be ok. A week later, another kitten in need was brought to Jenny's house after someone had found a little boy carrying it around a neighborhood in a bucket. Marvin was fighting for his life with a severe upper respiratory infection, and dehydration, and was covered in fleas. Jenny and Herbert took him under their wing, nursing him back to health. During their time of recovery, both Marvin and Herbert created such a special bond. They are best friends! These two are only a couple of weeks apart in age and are growing every day. We would love for them to get into a home before they turn into adults. Marvin and Herbert are great with dogs, children, and other cats. Please apply or stop in to see them!

Story
Meet Lillian who has quite the tale of survival. She was originally with one family as a kitten. After being rehomed along with two other feline companions, her journey took an unexpected turn as the new family she now trusted became a source of danger. Faced with the threat of abandonment, she found herself here at ARF. Even with all this, she is so trusting and loving. She has persevered during the time she's been with us after having suffered a cat "depression" due to the stress of these upheavals. Now, she just is looking for a haven where kindness will prevail and all the echoes of her turbulent history will fade way. Can you give this precious angel what she truly deserves? We hope so. Lillian has been spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, screened for FIV/FELV, screened and treated if needed for parasites, and treated for the prevention of fleas, ticks, ear mites and heartworm.

Meet Carl - this handsome black cat draws inspiration from the courageous character Carl from the Walking Dead, as they both share a determination to overcome life's challenges. Like his namesake, Carl is only able to use one of his eyes, but he is strong and has overcome the obstacles life has thrown his way. If you are ready to welcome a one-eyed wonder into your life, please consider making Carl a part of your family. This kitty is ready to embark on a new journey filled with love and endless snuggles after having had a very difficult outside life.

Meet Betsy - a loving black kitty with a heart full of untold stories. Found by one of our wonderful fosters living outside in the elements, this sweet girl now seeks a forever home. A teeny bit of shyness at first should not deter you from seeing the spirit within longing for a comfy blanket and warm lap to lay in rather than hard cement and cold soil. Will you be the one to open your heart and home to this jet black beauty and give her the love and security she deserves? Adopt her now and make a lasting impact on her journey to a brighter future!! Betsy has been spayed, microchipped, screened for FIV/FELV, screen and treated for parasites, updated vaccines and treated for the prevention of fleas, ticks, ear mites and heartworm. Please come and visit her during our open adoption hours.

Story
Lenny and Squiggy were surrendered by a family who tried to take them in and make them part of their clan. Their 6 month old cat just wouldn't accept them and would literally attack them. The family felt the little ones were being terrorized and tearfully decided that the best thing for them would be to give them up. These tiny cuties are currently in a foster home but will be available soon. They are absolutely precious. Very playful and fun! Their foster just sent this bio: Lenny is playful and full of antics! His favorite toys are fluffy mice and jingly balls. He tells you he loves you with very loud purrs and when you sit down for a bit he will find you and happily curl up on your lap. He is such a love bug!

Stash is a handsome fellow with a gentle demeanor. He is friendly and loves being held and petted. He will also chase strings and other toys. Stash did not react around other animals at the shelter and should do well in most homes with proper introduction to other friendly animals.

Catrick Stewart is a very playful boy. He loves chasing toys. He is also very treat oriented and is crazy about Temptations crunchy treats. He may growl a little if you hold him too long, and seems to prefer being on your lap or beside you to being carried around. He will nuzzle for more pets. Catrick Stewart would love a home where he can run around, and would likely be fine with other friendly animals with proper introduction.
