Meet Gumbo

Hi, my name is Gumbo! 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: Shy, reserved, still learning to trust, affectionate once comfortable
-Can Live with Cats: Unknown history - will need proper introductions to ensure everyone gets along
-Can Live with Dogs: Unknown history - will need proper introductions to ensure everyone gets along. No rough/rowdy dogs, please.
-Can Live with Kids: No thanks, Gumbo would do best in an adult-only home
-Needs Indoor Only Home: No
-History of Litter Box Issues: No
-Energy Level: Medium
-Bite History: No
-Needs Medical Procedure Before Going Home: Yes, a neuter
Additional Information:
Gumbo is a shy boy looking for a nice quiet home with a cat-experienced person. He came to the shelter as a stray, but it seems he was probably an outside kitty. He's been very shut down in the shelter environment (ie. hiding, avoiding people), but has since come around and now allows (and even enjoys) cheek scritches! He's still a bit on edge and is easily spooked by loud noises, but we think he'll do well in a low-traffic home where he can relax.

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.
