Orange is the New Black

Orange is the New Black CatsWith the success of our recent Tabby Cat Adoption Special in finding many deserving cats their forever homes, we want to keep the ball rolling and introduce another special for the month of February!

With nearly 300 cats in the care of the SPCA, many of those cats are orange! Tabby, solid, bi-color – there are so many predominately orange kitties to choose from! For the month of February, the adoption fee on all orange cats as been reduced to $25. Whether you are looking for a lazy Garfield-type or an active snuggle bug, we have the cat to fit your household. Stop by the SPCA this month and let us help you find your perfect match. By adopting a cat from our shelter, you allow us the space to take in another cat in need! Remember, don’t shop, ADOPT!

Sponsor An Animal

On a daily basis, we care for approximately 220 cats and 100 dogs so you can imagine how much it costs just to feed that many mouths each day. In addition, we must pay for shelter and we also provide medical care, socialization and most of all LOVE! Please become a sponsor to one of these animals in need of your help.
