  • ADOPT-A-CAT at PetSense and support North Beach PAWS

    If you are looking for a kitten or a cat, we are now doing adoptions out of PetSense in Aberdeen as well as through the shelter! Please go see our purr-babies if you would like to add to your family. We have cats and kittens of all ages, sizes and color. Those who have not been adopted after a couple of days will return to the shelter for a break and others will take their place, so check back often. Or if you are looking for a particular kitty, let us know! We might have one just waiting at our shelter for the purr-fect fur-ever home with you! Due to the high numbers of kitties needing rehomed at this time, we are offering a special adoption fee of one for $80 or two for $100. When considering adopting, understand that kittens and teenage litter mates often do better in pairs as they will entertain each other and not rely on you (or your house) for their primary means of entertainment. They are less mischievous if they can wear each other out! They all come spayed/neutered and all vaccinations, deworming, and flea control is current. The shelter has invested up to $250 per kitty, so this is much more economical than getting a free kitten you have to pay for the altering, initial vaccinations, veterinary care and wellness check, as this has already been done! Your purr-fect feline companion awaits you!
