What a wonderful personality Tamatao has! He’s affectionate, playful, and so very eager for attention. Tamatao gets along with everyone, and would be good with children. Tamatao is a 2 year old, short-haired, neutered male who is up to date with vaccines. However, Tamatao is positive for FeLV (feline leukemia). Although Tamatao is asymptomatic now, FeLV is a serious condition, and potential adopters should be familiar with it before applying to adopt. Click on these links to learn more:

Tamatao a 2022


Lucy is about 10 months old, and still kittenish. Lucy was originally semi-feral, and although she is still shy, she has made good progress in socialization during the time she has been in a foster home. However, she will need a patient owner who will allow her time to adjust to a new environment. A fish pole toy and Friskies Party Mix treats would help to break the ice. In her foster home Lucy gets along with other cats, and she enjoys looking out windows and sunbathing. Lucy’s foster mom says that Lucy is an affectionate love-bug who can purr up a storm, but she can also swat and nibble when she plays, and she does  not like to be picked up. Lucy needs a home where there are no dogs, and if there are children, only older teens.

Lucy is not at the shelter; she is in a foster home. If you are interested in adopting Lucy, email to request an application.

Neela Bengal(1)


Neela is a 13 year old Bengal who is spayed and current on vaccines. Neela is a friendly girl, and might get along with another cat since she has lived with a cat before. Neela is cautious and might not be appropriate for a home with little children, but she would never scratch or be aggressive. For her diet, Neela enjoys Iams dry food, Friskies pate, and drinks from her water fountain.
Neela is being surrendered because her owner is moving and can’t take her. Neela is not at the shelter, but she will come to the shelter to meet approved applicants.

Neela is not at the shelter. If you are interested in adopting Neela, email to request an application.
