Additional adoption info

At this time, due to both COVID-19 and a limited ability to staff the shelter, we are not open for "normal" visiting hours and are doing adoptions and meet-and-greets by appointment only to those with approved applications on file.

Please note that per the state of NH, in order to adopt cats/kittens to people out-of-state, the cat/kitten must have a health certificate signed by a licensed veterinarian (after an exam) prior to adoption. This means that anyone living outside of NH will not be able to do a same-day adoption, as once they meet and choose a cat, we will have to make a vet appointment to have them seen for their certificate (we do not have a veterinarian on staff).
