Congratulations to Issac, Seymour, and Ruger!
AS/AP has be busy during the month of August! All of us here want to give a big CONGRATS to Issac, Ruger, and Seymour on finding their forever families! We are so excited for all of the forever families and these three boys! They will surely make a wonderful addition to their homes. We will miss you three, but we know you will get all the love, care, and lots of attention with your new families :)
Lots of Love,
AS/AP Cats, Staff, and Volunteers

Stop in and meet Paige!
Our featured cat this week is Paige! Paige is a BEAUTIFUL one year old, pale tortie domestic short hair. She is a happy girl. She is very affectionate, and loves to snuggle and give kisses. She gets along well with other cats, however Paige is rather shy. She would do well in a home where she would either be the only cat, or the other cats would be in a less dominant role. Paige is very curious and would love a forever home that has lots of places to explore! Give the shelter a call, and stop in to see Paige today!
Too often in shelters we find that many potential adopters reach out toward the young, baby kittens, puppies, bunnies, etc. while the older animals are left at the shelter without a home. Before you reach to pick up that adorable bundle of fur, watch this video on why you should maybe think about adopting an older cat instead!

Is your cat having behavior issues?
Scratching the furniture? Jumping on top of the table? Going to the bathroom outside the litter box?
These actions and more are often regarded by cat owners as behavior "issues". Over time, they can become severe and can lead to the owner giving up their cat for adoption, or worse...
But are these actions really issues, or is your cat trying to tell you something?
Jackson Galaxy's hit TV show, My Cat From Hell, features the Catification expert himself working with families on their cat's behavior. Catification is working with the environment and the family, to solve problems and meet the needs of their cats.
For more information, access Jackson Galaxy's website here. Also, a great article on the importance of Catification can be found here.
Come in and meet: Chevy
Meet Chevy! He is a grey Domestic Short Hair, male, who has been at the shelter since November of 2012! We are not sure of his exact age, but we estimate he is between 2 and 3 years old. He is a BIG sweetheart! He is extremely laid back and has the most beautiful eyes. He loves to play with his friends, but he also enjoys relaxing; specifically on someone's lap! Chevy is one of the 5 cats at the shelter who's adoption fee has been donated. Call the shelter to make an appointment and meet Chevy today!

Pet of the Week!
We Need Your Help!!
Hello All! During the summer, we often encounter months where our shelter fills to full capacity. In hope to help our furry friends find their forever homes faster, we will be starting a Pet of the Week campaign. Each week we will feature a cat/kitten as our Cat of the Week. Along with a short description of the cat, we will also post some pictures and videos of them interacting with volunteers and the other cats.
Each week, we will have a goal for the "Pet of the Week" post of reaching 250 shares on Facebook, in hope to spread the word about our wonderful cats here at the shelter. So, what this means for you, is that we need you to post and ask your friends to share our page as well!
It's time to find these friends their Furr-Ever Homes!
