An update from Rosetta (formerly Jenny)’s family: We knew Rosetta was the one as soon as we took her out of the cage at the SPCA. She didn’t run or hide like we expected a timid shelter cat to do.

Gravy is an average, grey tabby.  I’ve seen many, many cats that look just like her.  When I visited the SPCA cat room 8 years ago, I hoped to find the perfect kitten that resembled the 14 year-old torti I just lost.  This room was filled with cats—many out exercising and playing, and several kittens … More >

From Miss Kay’s adopter Tammie: Here I am with my adopted kitty (Miss Kay, front) and my crazy kitten (Silas).

A poem from Ivy’s adopters: How do we love you, Ivy? Let us count the ways: We love Ivy enough to take a 12-hour, one-day road trip to Lexington so Ivy could meet our 11-year-old dog Ollie to make sure they get along. We love Ivy enough to purchase additional home owner?s insurance because our … More >

Poor Granny: she clearly was owned by someone, but she came into the SPCA, around 13 years old, blind, and lost.  Luckily, Granny’s guardian angel rescued her, paid for a full vet check-up, and traveled far to give Granny the great home she deserves for the rest of her life. Thank you to Granny’s angel!
