Tia is a social and sweet cat estimated to be about 10 years old. She spent some time living rough on the streets as you can likely see from her scraggly coat and weepy eyes. Tia is also FelV+ but in otherwise good health and likely has many more (indoor) years in front of her!
Tia will need to be an only cat, but she may be fine with a cat-savvy dog who gives her space. She is great with all humans and would be a wonderful family cat.
Each year, our shelter finds homes for an average of 500+ animals and reunites dozens of lost pets with their grateful owners. Our pets come from every corner of the state and stay with us as long as they need. We do not-- and have never -- euthanized for length of stay or shelter space.
Helping animals means helping the people who love them, too. Recent programs include a 24/7 free pet food pantry for any pet owner facing financial need due to the pandemic, as well as ongoing low cost neuters and veterinary care for community pet owners.
Our programs help to keep our region's feral cat population in check, while improving quality of life for these vulnerable animals. At SAS we trap, neuter, and then release feral adults to live out their lives more healthfully, without producing litters of homeless kittens. Any kittens born stray are adopted, generally in pairs. Our volunteers further provide winter shelters and monitor feral colonies to ensure the cats are healthy.
