In her former home, Blitz was housebroken and loved to sleep in her doggy bed.

Apollo looks forward to his walks and will give a solid four-on-the-floor when it’s time to leash up.

Age: 5 years

Zeus is the most handsome cat you will ever meet. He and his bonded partner, Zippy, will pose for the camera. They are always side by side and like to snuggle together. They both came to Paws Patrol a few years ago. They are currently our watchful eyes at the office. Both like to stay up above and around you and just out of reach. They are a little elusive and may not be lap cats, however they are the best-behaved cats. They may be shy but with enough time and in the right home, they’ll show their love and appreciation by rubbing around your legs and posing for photographs! Zippy is probably the second most handsome cat you will ever meet. He is always near his partner, Zeus. They always keep each other company. Like other cats, they enjoy playing with toys and will be your best friend when it is time to eat! They get along with other cats and are friendly but most likely will not be lap cats. If you are looking for the most photogenic couple of kitties, these two are naturals and will fill up your camera with snapshots in no time! Adoption qualifications required.

Fee: $40 for both. COVID-19 adoption specials: all kittens 12 months or younger are now $40 and all other cats are $20. Includes microchip, neutering and current shots.

Meet: By appointment, give us a call.


Age: 1½ years

Story: She gets her name from a type of lemur because of the way she jumps and looks! To be straightforward, Indri is special, picky and a bit weird ... let us explain! Indri came to us from a high-risk shelter where she was previously found as a stray with an unknown background. Due to this, she takes a bit of time to feel she can trust a human. She also is not a lap cat, but a cat that will be in your presence and only want pets on her terms. Basically if you’re looking for a quiet roommate that tends to mind her own business or your cat is looking for a friend, Indri is your girl! She does love wet food and treats. She also likes to play with toys and window-watch. She would like a kitty friend in her forever home and would do OK with respectful dogs. We also don’t recommend kids in her forever home.

Fee: 85$. She is spayed, current on vaccines, dewormed, microchipped (registered to you for life) and tested negative for FIV/FeLV.

Age: 1 year

Story: This precious female came to us pregnant after she was found by a caring human. Her kittens are old enough to be adopted, so she is also available. She is sweet — just barely past kitten-hood herself, and occasionally will get the “zoomies.” She is affectionate and would be great in a home with snuggle spots, sunny spaces and treats. She gets along with other kitties but to our knowledge hasn’t met dogs yet.

Fees: $80

Age: 8 months

Story: Bixby and his five siblings were rescued after their mother was found deceased in an alley. They were all in rough shape; we think their mom had been gone a few days. The kittens were bottle-fed and received all the TLC they needed from their foster parents. Bixby has always been the biggest kitten; he is sweet and snuggly and still loves to suckle on his foster dad’s shirt. He is energetic and playful, too. Bixby and his sister, Dot, are awaiting their forever homes.

Fee: $110 for one; $165 for two (includes neuter, microchip and age appropriate shots)
