Meet Avery, a young female cat who's been here 921 days waiting for her forever home. She loves the feather toys and the laser beams. And you might think she's trying to topple you over with all her figure 8s around your legs, but all she's trying to do is mark you as hers. She knows that one of these times she's going to mark that special person that is meant to be all hers. Is it you? We'd love to see Avery in a home before her 1,000th day here happens.

Marshall is an URGENT need of a home. His is extremely stressed in his case.

Outside of his kennel, he is a great boy who LOVES people and enjoys being outside. Marshall is about 4 years old and is currently missing a lot of hair on his back and underarms which appears to be stress related as all his bloodwork came back normal.
Marshall would prefer to be the only animal in the home. If you're looking for your one and only, please consider Marshall. We are VERY open to rescues pulling this boy for foster care.
