Stop the cycle!  Spay or Neuter your pets!


The last three years have been the busiest kitten seasons we've seen!  Every rescue is completely overrun with cats & kittens and ours is no exception!

Kittens can breed before they're 6 months old!! If you have an unaltered pet, please spay or neuter. There are low-cost options available to EVERYONE! "I can't afford it" is no excuse!
You can’t afford not to!

Altered kittens/cats make better companions. Altered kittens/cats are less likely to get many types of cancer. Having your animals altered reduces the number of kittens and cats that ultimately end up in shelters (and are often euthanized)!!

Please spay or neuter your pets! Encourage friends and family to spay and neuter! Let's do our part to help end
