FREE SPAY/NEUTER for COMMUNITY CATS

Do you have free roaming "community cats" or what people like to call "feral" cats that you see and watch over?  The Humane Society of Charles County has been generously awarded grants from the Petco Foundation and the Snyder Foundation for Animals to help stop the unwanted litters being born every season to these free roaming "community cats."  Read all about the "Friends Forever Community Outreach Trap Neuter Return" program which is available to help spay and neuter these cats free of charge.  Free spay/neuters are just an email or phone call away!

Cool Cats!

Meet Kitty Boo


Hello! My name is Kitty Boo, and I am a 10 years young beautifully soft black/white long hair female.  You'll love petting me because my hair is just so soft! I am very affectionate and independent, and would love nothing better than to be a couch potato and move when I absolutely have to.... you know, when I hear the kibble bell ring!  I am just a bit nervous around young children and will run and hide, so a more quiet home would be the best for me.

I enjoy sleeping at the end of the bed, top of the stairs, back of the couch... well, who are we kidding, I enjoy napping!  I'm used to both dry and wet food. I have never been around other cats and I prefer not to be around dogs, unless they understand that I am boss.  I am enjoying my freedom in the Humane Education room while I wait at the shelter for my new home.  I did well using the litter box. I LOVE all toys. I like to have scratching posts too! I love chasing and pouncing and crackling toys. Paper bags are lots of fun. I like access to go outside, but please let me back in when I would like in. I also really like to be able to look out of the window.  I'm really a down to earth nice kitty and I am so looking forward to finding my retirement home! Can you help?



Meet Thomasina


Hi! My name is Lady Thomasina and I am a 4 year old female domestic shorthair goddess with gorgeous brown/black tiger stripes looking for a new home to show off my gorgeousness! I am very lovable and I enjoy cuddling. I am also carefree and love to lounge around sometimes. I can live with other cats and have been very social in Kitty City at the shelter, but I do need some personal attention sometimes!  Are you looking for a true purrrrfect kitty?  You need look no further than ME!  f you adopt me, I will be the best addition to your family!

I do get along well with all the new people coming in to visit all of the cats, but want nothing more than to have a place to call my own!  A new family would mean the world to me since I've had no family that I can remember.  I was found wondering around Route 6 in March and then brought to the shelter where it was quickly realized that I was just AMAZING!  If you can handle all this amazingness, please call the shelter, I'll be waiting to meet you, right in Kitty City, Cage # 12.
