Special Needs/FIV+ Cats
These kitties have a special need or have tested positive for FIV and/or FLV.  They have all been approved for adoption by our vets but may require special care or provisions.  

How adorable is this sweet old man?!! This handsome gent is Igor! Igor is approximately an 8 year old neutered male DSH. He came into us a scrawny, beaten up stray who was definitely in need of some TLC. Despite his poor condition, Igor’s affectionate, outgoing personality never faltered. Sadly, he did test positive for FIV and although he has finally been released for adoption, he will need a knowledgeable family who can provide him with the care and unconditional love he’s always deserved! It is not recommended that Igor be housed with other cats unless they too are positive! If you think Igor would make the perfect companion for your family, please stop on down and spend some time with him! We promise you won’t regret it.
Adoption Fee $25.00

This gorgeous guy is Ollie or as most staff call him “Koala”. Ollie is a 3 year old neutered male DSH who is considered one of our “special needs” companions as he needs to remain on a special gentle digestion diet as he cannot properly digest regular cat food. He gets along great with most other cats and older respectful children too but will need a forever home without dogs! Ollie LOVES to play and is very affectionate but he does not like to be held/carried and can get overstimulated at times. If you think Ollie the Koala could be the perfect addition to your family please stop on down and spend some time with him.
Adoption Fee $ 45.00

This stunning young lady is Nova. Nova is a 2 and half year old spayed female Domestic Medium Hair who gets along wonderfully with most other cats and children too! Nova is considered “special needs” as she is prone to urinary issues. With that being said, she will need to stay on a special urinary diet lifelong to help prevent common urinary issues from arising such as Urinary tract infections. Nova is using the litter box consistently here at the shelter while on her special diet! She’s a sweet and cuddly as can be and would make a great companion for a laid back, loving family. If you think Nova could be the one for you, please stop on down and spend some time with her.

Sweet Sierra is a 3 year old spayed female DSH who is waiting patiently for her people to come and fall in love with her! She is quite the love bug and enjoys lounging about in nice comfy beds and fluffy blankets! Sierra gets along great with most other kitties but she is FeLV positive, so it is not recommended that she be housed with other kitties unless they too are positive! If you think this sweet girl could be the perfect companion for you, please stop on down and spend some time with her!

Big lover boy Sebastian is always overwhelming us with his adorableness and lovable personality! Sebastian is a 5 year old neutered male DSH who came into us as an injured/sickly stray in poor condition. He was infested with fleas, his ears were loaded with ear mites and he was covered in sores and scabs. Despite being turned in in such rough shape, all he wanted was love and attention and of course that’s exactly what he received! Although Sebastian is looking and feeling so much better, he did test positive for FIV and is not recommended to be housed with other cats unless they too are positive! If you have the room in your heart and your home for a big handsome love bug like Sebastian, please stop on down to meet him!
