We are under construction!
If you are coming to look at our adoptable animals, please park at the side of the building and walk to the back to enter through a set of double doors. You will greeted by a volunteer or staff member, who will show you straight through the hallway into our adoptions atrium. Our adoption hours will remain the same: 2-7pm M-F and 12-5pm Sat and Sun. Thank you for your patience and for bearing with us!
Meet lovely Lyra! This brownish-gray and black tiger cat is shy and noise-sensitive, but as she relaxes and gets to know you, she becomes quite sweet and loving. She may be hesitant to leave her cage amidst the busy, noisy shelter traffic - or even leave her bed or box, so approach her with calmness and gentle handling. She has quite a purr motor that turns on with petting and one-on-one affection, and she will often roll over, "make biscuits," and nuzzle you (and nearly everything else that's not nailed down) as you keep her company. Most of the time she's quiet but can be meowy for attention when relaxed (look for this). She tends to prefer cozy cat beds over toys for the most part (though soft toys can be an exception), and treats are welcome. She also tends to be a "social eater," meaning she may eat during petting and attention, so just go with the flow as you two keep each other company. Lyra originally lived in a previous home, but the owner had to move into assisted living, so now Lyra is seeking her fur-ever home that's quiet and laid-back with well-set daily routines and loving "cat people" who will take care of her and make her feel safe and comfy. Lyra's previous home had another cat, but she did sometimes hide from that cat, so if you have other furry roommates, talk to our adoption counselors to see if Lyra would be a good fit or best as a solo cat. Spend time getting to know Lyra and take her home today.
