Batman is as fearless and attractive as his name suggests. His silky black coat is just like a black cape, and he is in need of a Robin! Adopt him and become his sidekick. Batman is about three years old and has been at the shelter for about a month.


Just a year old, this attractive guy is a spitfire, with loads of personality. He doesn’t like his picture taken and he wasn’t afraid to tell us! He would do well with lots of attention and someone who has time to play with him.



This lovely lady is a big girl who loves to eat and relax. Who doesn’t? She is about eight years old, and ideal for someone who is looking for a low-key companion.



Hanging out with Fiji is like taking a vacation; she is super cute and friendly. She is an all-black, short-haired cat who is around three years old. Black cats are the least likely to be adopted, so she has been overlooked many times. Please consider taking her home!
