News

PLEASE NOTE: OUR MISSION is try to make people aware of the importance of picking the animal that is right for you and then doing right to that animal for the rest of its life. Getting the message out about the importance of spaying and neutering is extremely important to us. We are aware that there are many misconceptions about felines and we do our best to clear some of those up. When an animal comes into our care we do our best to make them feel secure and assess their health to see if immediate medical care is needed. They are tested for serious/contagious disease, wormed, micro-chiped, .altered and vaccinated. The next step is of course waiting for adoption. In some cases, the wait is very long. Ultimately, the perfect match comes along and off they go. So many of our adopters come back with pictures or heartwarming stories of their new lives. We are currently looking for dependable individuals that are willing to give about one hour a week to volunteer for cage attendants, transportation, vet visits, assist on adoption days or foster. There is no reason why any one ever has to be bored. Volunteerism is a win/win situation and one of the most fullfilling activities you can participate in.

Adopting a friend

. We reserve the right to refuse any application that we feel for whatever reason is not going to be a good match. We also reserve the right to not have to disclose the reason. ADOPTION FEES: FELINES CATS/KITTENS: & 110.00, if declawed, $130. ADOPTION FEES: Canines: $120 INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING: Heart worm test, worming, first shot, spay/neuter, micro-chip and Rabies vac. when old enough. In certain breeds we do charge $20 more which goes into our medical fund to help with increasing vet expenses.

Come Visit Us!

Our animals love window visits. If they are napping when you come, most likely they have just had lots of visitors or activity. We are currently located in the Petsmart in Schererville, Indiana, Petco in Calumet City, Illinois . Adoptions events are conducted at the two stores on Saturdays from 11:A.M. until 2: P.M. However it is always best to check us first if you are making a special trip or coming a great distance.
