Opt to Adopt Bailey and Riley

Tuesday, October 20, 2015


Bailey is a very handsome orange and white Domestic Shorthair.  He is incredibly friendly and often greets visitors when they come into his room.  Bailey loves to hang out with his human friends, and he will follow you around until you pet him or give him a belly rub.  He's an outgoing guy and enjoys sitting in laps.




Riley is Bailey's brother.  He is also an orange and white Domestic Shorthair.  Riley is a little shyer than Bailey, but he also loves attention.  Riley likes face rubs and hanging out with his brother as well as his human friends.  Riley has a deformity in one of his front paws where it did not fully develop.  However, he can get around just fine, and he doesn't let this slow him down at all.  

Both cats came to the shelter when their owner became too ill to care for them any longer.  They are very sweet boys who would make great additions to any home.  Bailey and Riley are approximately seven years old.  They get along with their feline roommates and are up-to-date on their vaccinations, litter box trained, and neutered.  They have tested negative for FIV and FeLV.  Bailey and Riley are brothers and best friends and must be adopted together.  

You can find Bailey and Riley in the Orange Room at Cat Care Society.  Please stop by to get to know these awesome cat companions.

Bailey and Riley are eligible for our Tails of the REAL Painted Cats Adoption Special.

During the entire month of October, you can adopt any cat with two or more coat colors for just $50.  You can check out all of our adoptable cats HERE.  Please note that the standard adoption process applies during this promotion.

Opt to Adopt Rosie

Thursday, September 24, 2015


Beautiful black panther, Rosie, would love to find her forever home and a human to love.  Rosie is a feisty cat with cattitude.  She's not too happy at the shelter because she doesn't enjoy being around other cats, but if you can get her alone, she likes having her head stroked.  Rosie likes to talk, and she'll let you know her opinions!  Kitten Chow is Rosie's favorite treat, and she likes hanging out on the cat tree in the shelter's upstairs hallway.

Rose originally came to Cat Care when her owner became ill.  Her owner recovered and was able to take Rosie home again.  However, her owner fell ill again and is no longer able to care for Rosie.  All of this transition has been confusing for Rosie, but she would love to find a new home.  

Rosie is approximately 14 years old.  Because she is a "senior" cat, she is part of the Perpet-U-Care program, which will pay for a portion of her veterinary care for the rest of her life (restrictions apply).  She prefers a home without children, dogs, or other cats.  

You can meet Rosie in the upstairs hallway at Cat Care Society.  Please take the time to get to know this sweet girl - you won't regret it!  

Special Needs September Adoption Special

During the entire month of September, you can adopt any special needs or senior cat from Cat Care Society for $40.  Individuals with disabilities and seniors aged 60+ can adopt any special needs or senior cat for $20.  Please note that the standard adoption process still applies.

Our awesome shelter manager, Heather Allen, says, "Augustine is a sweet and gentle cat who loves human attention.  He loves to run up and greet all visitors entering the room.  He gets along with his feline roommates and would do just fine in a multi-cat home."

Black Cat Appreciation Adoption Special

Thursday, August 13, 2015

Cairo, one of the beautiful, sweet black panthers waiting for adoption at Cat Care Society.

Monday, August 17th, is Black Cat Appreciation Day!  To celebrate our love of black cats, Cat Care Society is holding a week-ling Black Cat Appreciation Adoption Special.

From August 18th through August 23rd, you can name your price on any black cat or cat with some black fur one year of age or older, or you can spin the wheel to determine your adoption fee.  Land on light or dark blue, and have your adoption fee waived.  If the wheel stops on purple, green, or yellow, pay $8, and if it stops on red, pay $17 for your new cat.

Why should you adopt a black cat?  

  • Black goes with everything!
  • In many cultures, black cats are a sign of good luck.
  • They look like mini black panthers.
  • Black fur doesn't show up on your black clothes.
  • They are as loving, affectionate, and sweet as any other color cat.
  • Adopting a cat saves a life!
