Adoption update: “Wanted to send an email about the kitten I was so blessed to have been able to adopt on September 7th. His given name was Felix but I chose to name him Fish!! He has warmed up wonderfully and I’m very proud to be his mom! Still not entirely sure how old he is but he was said to be about 5 months when I adopted him!! He still has lots of kitten mannerisms but he has grown and blossomed so much. He’s become quite the picky and spoiled type but he deserves it, thank you for connecting me to him and allowing me to adopt him into my little family.”
Adoption update: “I wanted to thank you for allowing me to adopt Atticus (now Foley) in August of last year. He is a sweet, rambunctious guy who loves naps, playing, and video bombing Zoom calls. He’s grown a bit, and has become quite the fierce house panther. Many a cat toy has met its end in his claws. But being a well-rounded gentleman, he is also a champion snuggler. I’m so appreciative of the great care received while at Animal Care and Control and the amazing staff and volunteers who helped him find his forever home. I wish you all the best in this holiday season and the year to come.”
Sweet puppy Pluto has gone home!
Thank you to big bun Alex the Great and his person for the donation of veggies for our buns and guinea pigs! They’ll be snacking very happily!
