Please understand: If your animal has significant medical or behavior issues, a past bite history or a feral cat:  We will be unable to help.  This non-profit is run by volunteers only and your request if it includes the issues above, you may not be contacted back.  

Found Kittens

We are in full swing of kitten season.  We are full and have no room to house more, however if you are able to foster until adopted or place we maybe able to help.  If you are looking for a group to medially vet the kittens, we maybe able to help.  

we try our best to help all animals in need, however there is only so many spots to put them in: so please consider being a foster.

Please make every effort to find the momma.  This task is critical in stopping the cycle, as well as giving the kittens the bast start they can have. 

 

Cat Surrenders

If you are attempting to surrender your animal, our policy is briefly outlined below: surrenders have a cost involved and often must you to foster until the animal has a placement.  Our adult cats live at an adoption center at one of our local Petsmarts.  We have had great success in finding over 100 adult cats and 75 kittens.  If your animal will not do well in this environment, this can not be an option.  We do the bast we can, however we can not fix every problem and your understanding in important.   

We are not a shelter. Our help is not a given or a guarantee.  Again, we assist in helping place surrenders whenever possible, however if there is an unwillingness to help us help YOU, this will not work.

If you have a litter of puppies or kittens and are unwilling to fix your momma and dad, we can not help.  If the animal you are inquiring about is a stray, please take it to a local vet or the shelter so efforts can be made to scan for a microchip and get the animal back to its owner.  We CAN NOT accept stray animals as there is a legal protocal that has to be met includng a 30 day waiting period (NO EXCETIONS). Please see your local shelter: Coco County or Antioch Animal Shelter website for instructions.  

We expect that you have done everything in your power to avoid a re-home.  We expect that you have reached out to all your network of people to re-home to a friend or relative.  Please contact us so we can change the microchip information.  If you have exhausted every effort please contact us with plenty of time to find a new owner.   

It is our mission to help animals in need to the best of our ability, however we make no guarantees that we can make all humans happy in this process.  

Thank you in advance for understanding.....Then Contact us
