Available for Adoption





Chewbacca is a furry guy looking for his forever home! He was saved from the cold and lonely streets by a local shelter, and from there was transferred to us here. Chewbacca loves a good belly rub, but doesn’t care for fast moving hands towards him so he will do best in a home with no young children. If you are looking for a mellow dog to keep you company, look no further than our Chewy!

It’s the Caper of the Pink Tipped Kitty by our very own Sherlock!

Sherlock arrived with a mystery that left all of us stumped and ‘purr’plexed- how did this one year old boy get such a noticable pink spot in his fur? While we’d like to think it was just his simple curiousity that got the best of him, rubbing against wet paint, or something of the sort, we suspect that Sherlock was the target of paintball activity in a local neighborhood.

This sweet boy with a quiet purr is now ready to help you solve all your household mysteries, including the Case of the Missing Milk Ring, and the Tale of the Laser Pointer Dot That Would Not Be Caught. Want to make Sherlock your lifetime partner in crime? Stop in today and visit with him!

If you are interested in adopting or fostering one of our fantastic felines, you can fill out an on-line application.  You’ll find the form on our Forms page.

Thanks for looking!
In addition to our cats at the shelter and for your convenience, we also have a variety of fantastic felines available for adoption everyday at offsite locations:  the Grand Haven Chow Hound, Petsmart on Sherman Blvd. in Muskegon and the Holland Pet Supplies Plus.

Please stop by one of these spots to visit with our furry friends and let one of them steal your heart away!
