Story
Are you looking for a cool, calm, and collected sidekick? Look no further than Miss Gypsy! Gypsy was surrendered to the shelter because she was living a stressful and isolated life. Her owner knew Gypsy deserved better and surrendered her. Gypsy is an older lady, but still has plenty of life left in her. If you are a Golden Girls fan, think of Gypsy as Dorothy. Gypsy is easy to get along with if you respect her space. She would do best in a quiet home where she is the only cat, maybe even the only pet. She would be okay with older kids IF they can respect her space. Our Gypsy will let you know when she isn't thrilled about what's going on. Are you ready to bring a Golden Girl into your home? Gypsy could be the one for you!**Spayed, FIV/FeLV negative, and up-to-date on vaccines & monthly prevention**

Story
** FRONT & BACK DE-CLAWED **If you are looking for an older gentleman that is DECLAWED on ALL 4 paws, look no further than our main man, Oscar! Oscar was surrendered to the shelter after his owner could no longer care for him. Oscar is still warming up to shelter staff and really misses his human dad, but we are confident that once Oscar gets into a nice and quiet new home, he will perk up and be very loving. He is not thrilled about the dogs barking and his feline roommates, but did come from a home with three other cats. He would most likely do well with other female cats or submissive male cats. He would also prefer a home with plenty of recliner space and warm, sunny spots to lay in and take a snooze. If you think you could give Oscar an amazing home, apply today!

Story
Hello, my name is Mica. I'm a newer face at the shelter and I'm still getting used to this big, scary place.You see, I began my young life with my mom and littermates being cared for as strays by a really nice lady. She made sure we were fed, socialized and given a safe place to rest. The nice lady had us on the waiting list since we were just tiny kittens and finally we were able to be brought to FDHS to begin searching for homes of our own!Although I'm still decompressing and coming out of my shell at the shelter, I have proven to be a very sweet young man and the staff is confident I'm going to find a purr-fect home!**Neutered, FIV/FeLV negative, and up-to-date on vaccines & monthly prevention**

Story
This yellow fellow is Mr. Rusty! Rusty and his family are new faces at FDHS and are available for adoption. Rusty was born in June and spent the first half year of his life being cared for by a nice lady. She kept him safe and sound until he was able to be brought in to help find a home. He does not have a lot of experience with dogs, so you can imagine that he's pretty nervous at the shelter with his noisy canine neighbors. But despite being scared he is still very sweet and doesn't mind being cuddled and loved on. Rusty would make an ideal companion for someone looking for a cuddle buddy to binge watch your favorite show with.

Story
This beautiful girl is Sprinkles! Sprinkles joined the FDHS crew nearly two months ago when she came to us in pretty rough shape. She was thin, wounded and feeling pretty sick. Our veterinarians estimated her to be about 8 years old and after some testing also found that she has FIV.Sprinkles has been on a few different medications since her arrival and has already made significant progress in her health. We are confident that her condition can be managed and she still has a few golden years left on this planet.For being such a little cat with the odds stacked against her, Sprinkles has always been the sweetest thing. Even at her worst- her purr motor remained strong and her personality was always upbeat. We have all fallen in love with her toothless smile and her big heart.Being an FIV+ kitty means that Sprinkles is more susceptible to illness and must live strictly indoors. We tried bunking her up with our other available FIV+ resident- but Sprinkles made it clear she prefers a solo lifestyle.Sprinkles is looking for a quiet, loving home that's willing to give an older cat a chance at a happily ever after.

Meet Blair, the enchanting little black shelter cat who’s been waiting patiently for her forever family. This charismatic feline arrived at our shelter a few months ago and has since stolen the hearts of everyone who’s had the pleasure of meeting her.Blair’s affection for humans knows no bounds – she adores people of all ages, and her sweet and playful nature will quickly make her the heart of your home. There’s something delightfully spooky about her, a captivating charm that’s as mysterious as the night itself. Picture her perched in a sunbeam, her sleek black fur glistening, while she listens to the bewitching melodies of Stevie Nicks.When it comes to other feline companions, Blair has a bit of a bossy streak, preferring to be the center of attention. But this spirited personality only adds to her charm, making her a delightful and unforgettable presence in your life.While Blair’s history with dogs remains a mystery, she’s encountered the sounds and smells of them in the shelter environment. With her playful and adaptable nature, she may surprise you with her ability to adapt to a doggy companion with the right introduction and guidance.Blair is a cat who embodies the essence of love and playfulness. She’s a devoted companion who will fill your home with joy and your heart with warmth. Don’t let her wait any longer; bring this little black enchantress into your life, and watch as she casts her spell of love over you and your family.**Spayed, FIV/FeLV negative, and UTD on vaccines**

Story
Jonesy is 3 years old. He is so sweet, cuddly, affectionate, and playful with other animals. He needs to be placed in a home with ~ 2 other cats and/or dogs. I have to surrender him because I cannot have more animals at this time and he needs that to thrive and be his happiest self (or else he will get very loud all night.) He would do best in a house where he has space to run around, probably not an apartment. He loves to roll around upside down and be held like a baby. He does very well on a leash as long as you are not by a busy street. He does not bite or scratch (sometimes he will get you by accident while playing!) And will not scratch furniture if you have cardboard scratchers. He also likes to lick your face in the morning. He will not hurt small children but will typically avoid them. He may take a little bit to warm up to you but once he does he is the most loving kitty in the world. The fee is simply to ensure he goes to a good home.

Bwahahaha! You’re not gonna foil my plans! Actually you’re following them perfectly! The plan you ask? Why to adopt me, obvi! Sorry, I’m just monologuing as all villains do. I like talking and what villain doesn’t give the full dark backstory as to why they are going to take over the world? It’s a vital portion of the orientation. Anyways, if you couldn’t tell, I’m trying to follow in the large footsteps of the one and only Bowser from Super Mario Bros! I think I’m doing well, but will admit that I do like to cuddle here and there and really love laser pointers. Think you can handle a lil guy that likes to scheme? Come on by to my castle and we’ll see.I don’t come alone! What’s a villain without their arch nemesis and their sidekick? I’m paired with Mario Mario and Toadster!

It’s a Me, Mario Mario! Why I’m the main character of the group! I love the attention, and honestly I can’t get enough of it. I am the true definition of a cuddle bug and will be in your lap 24/7 if you let me. Kinda like how my name-sake likes to hit blocks with his head/hands, I will always, without fail, knead your lap before laying down. Gotta make sure it’s fit for a true king. If you think you can handle this main character energy, come stop by!While I’m the main character, I do come with some side characters too! I come along with Big Boi Bowser and Toadster!

I mean I don’t want you to be alone incase something happens! I have to always be ready for everything!
