Pictures of dogs and cats who need a home
We have many amazing rescued animals looking for loving homes. All of them have been spayed or neutered and are up to date on vaccines and routine tests. With over 150 dogs and 50 cats available at any time, we know we can find the perfect companion for your family!
Adoptable cats are on view during store business hours. Small Miracles adoption counselors are on site at the stores most Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 3 p.m. Shelter volunteers also show adoptable dogs at the stores on select weekends.
KAR volunteers work to rescue cats and dogs from numerous difficult situations. A TNR (Trap, Neuter, and Release) cat is assessed for friendly or feral behavior. A friendly kitty will be prepared for adoption; a feral cat will be treated and released in a safe area. Which would it be for Oscar?
Oscar was a frightened mess. Our foster showed up at the vet carrying him in a live trap and wearing welding gloves. However, a few days later another volunteer found she could pet his back a bit a good sign! Need for further medicating confirmed that Oscar was just frightened, not angry, so there was hope.
When Oscar was fostered in the office, he received attention twice daily. Volunteers found they could pet him, as he began to purr and ask for belly rubs. To help him along, his original volunteer took him home. At first he hid, but after a few days he stayed out and eventually wandered around the house on his way to being ready for adoption.
His adoptive parents love him, he loves them, and they adopted Puma, also from the rescue, to be with Oscar. Oscar and Puma are thoroughly loved and treated like kings in their castle. Oscar is now a daddys boy; he follows his adoptive dad around the house and prefers to sleep with dad. But he also loves his mom and waits by the door for her to get home from work so that his whole family can be together.
