Open Your Heart

Dixie PFWe have many wonderful cats looking for forever homes including Dixie. If you are interested in adopting, please review our list of adoptable cats and our adoption guidelines. All of our cats have been examined by a veterinarian, tested for FeLV/FIV (Feline Leukemia/Feline AIDS), neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. They have been de-wormed and treated for fleas. If you’re interested in meeting one of them for potential adoption, please contact us via e-mail at shelter4cats@gmail.com. The Shelter is open Wednesday 6-8PM, Saturday noon-3PM, and by appointment.

Cat of the Week

Piper is a very lucky cat! He was rescued from The Winchendon School drainage system on a very cold, winter weekend. After 12 hours, and with the help of many volunteers, Piper was successfully rescued from the drainage pipe and is in good health. He is a very friendly, lovable cat that enjoys being held. Such a purr machine. We are thrilled he will have a second chance at a good life with a loving family.
More available cats.

Thank you for the Support
