Pet of the Week

Welcome to our Pet of the Week page! Once a week we will update this page with the newest featured kitty and we will keep all the previous Pets of the Week that have yet to be adopted on this page as well.

All of the cats on this page have been spayed or neutered. They have also been blood tested for both Feline AIDS and Feline Leukemia, vaccinated for distemper, rabies, and leukemia and microchipped for identification. The adoption fee is $75.00 and this includes all previous medical care, an ID tag and collar, cardboard cat carrier, and a booklet on proper cat care.

All adoptions are by appointment only so that we may guide you through the process and assist in the selection of the right cat(s) for your family. Please call Marsha at 937-376-5550 to schedule an appointment.
