We advance the welfare of animals and promote positive relationships between animals and people. 

We are Social Animals!

Featured Pet Olivia is aged to purr-fection! At 10-years-young, don’t let her age fool you — she’s very much a spry lass. While she is an adventurer, she is declawed, so she’ll need to be kept indoors, preferably with window seating for the tortie. Olivia is also quite friendly once given time and space. When she’s ready, you’re set with a love bug for life — her purr sounds like a dove’s coo!

If you’ve got an adult-only home with no other pets, opt for the outstanding Olivia — #508743
