Fun Bio: Poor Concha. She has been waiting SO LONG for the right person to find her. Concha is a young girl who was living on the street, but then demanded a warm, safe environment, and pushed her way into someone's home and then eventually found her way to R&R. At first, her rescuer thought she was pregnant as her belly appeared round. Nope! Concha was so underweight and thin, once she finally had access to food, it was determined it was just a "food baby" in her belly! She is happy now that she is in a warm home with lots of love and delicious food and particularly loves tube treats! Concha can be sweet and affectionate but can be a bit of a diva. She thinks she is a queen and expects to be treated as such! She loves to snuggle (on her terms), likes belly rubs, and loves to sit in boxes. She's truly a great girl, just needs someone who will understand her. She's been so patient and is ready for her forever home! Is it with you?

If interested in a pet from us please fill out the adoption application that is located on our website. We process applications in the order in which they are received. We will likely not respond to interest emails regarding puppies and/or kittens, we get so many "interest" emails that we simply do not have the time to respond to each one.

We always recommend playtime, positive reinforcement training and a regular schedule for feeding times when bringing a new cat/kitten into your home. Adjustment takes time for both you and your new family member, so remember to be patient and enjoy this new and exciting time!
Included in the adoption fee are age appropriate vaccinations, FeLV/FIV testing, deworming, spay or neuter surgery, and microchip.

Anti-Declawing Policy:
All cats and kittens will have a no declaw policy in their adoption contract with us!

Declawing is a series of bone amputations. Declawing is more accurately described by the term de-knuckling and is not merely the removal of the claws, as the term declawing implies. In humans, fingernails grow from the skin, but in animals that hunt prey, the claws grow from the bone; therefore, the last bone is amputates so the claw cannot re-grow. Declawing is one of the most painful, routinely performed procedures in all of veterinary medicine. Each toe of the cat is amputated at the first joint. Declawing a cat is equivalent in a person to amputating the entire first knuckle of every finger.

Declawing is done strictly for the benefit of the owner. There are NO benefits to the cat and NO good reasons to declaw.

Declawing can lead to behavior changes. A declawed cat has no way to defend itself and may resort to biting more often. Due to pain, they may stop using the litterbox.

There are humane alternatives to declawing. Cats can be trained to use scratching posts. They should have their nails trimmed regularly. There is double sided sticky tape that can be put on furniture to deter a cat from scratching there. There are also nail caps called Soft Paws that are glued onto a cat's nails without harm.
