Meet Charmander

Hi, my name is Charmander! I'm a RED pawprint, which means I need an experienced home that meets some specific criteria. Here is what would work best for me in my new home:

-Personality: Energetic, active, BOLD, affectionate
-Can Live with Cats: No, unless the other cat is also FIV+
-Can Live with Dogs: Unknown history - will need proper introductions to ensure everyone gets along
-Can Live with Kids: Cat-savvy kids ages 12+ (he's prone to overstimulation)
-Needs Indoor Only Home: Yes, Charmander is FIV+ and needs to be indoor only!
-History of Litter Box Issues: No
-Energy Level: High
-Bite History: No
-Needs Medical Procedure Before Going Home: No

Charmander is a big high energy boy who came to the shelter as a stray. We don't know much regarding his history, but it seems he was likely a scrappy outdoor cat in his previous life. Charmander was a bit scared and hissy when he first arrived at the shelter (we don't blame him), but is now showing us that he's actually a big ole lover boy. He gives the best (and most intense) head butts we've ever seen and loves head scritches. Charmander is a HIGH ENERGY cat who can become a bit overstimulated at times. He'd likely do best with a cat-experienced adopter who's able to read his body language AND provide him with plenty of mental stimulation. Charmander is FIV+, which means he cannot live with other cats unless they are also FIV+ and he needs to be an indoor only kitty. Cats with FIV can live long and happy lives, please ask staff for more information about FIV if you're interested!

If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an application on our website ( or in person at our facility. We recommend calling into the shelter after your application has been submitted so our front desk can give you next steps on our adoption process.
