The Barn Cat Initiative

We are excited to announce that we now have a Barn Cat Project, and we need your help finding safe homes for our feral cats. It’s easy, and we’ll walk you through it!

Want the best form of rodent and pest control ever? We have environmentally safe working cats that are seeking full-time employment. Barn cats, or working cats, provide a 100% all-natural solution to mice, rats, snakes and assorted vermin!  The adoption fee is $25 to cover costs.  Contact us by calling 512-930-3592 or emailing tonia.hermann@georgetown.org to get on the list!

Ryder

cat of the week 11-16-13 ryder web

UPDATE:  Adopted!

This is Ryder, and he is an 8 month old white and orange kitty.  He was adopted once as a very young kitten but was returned to the shelter after having a bad allergic reaction to a flea collar (we think).

He have the highest pitch meow and the most golden amber colored eyes that he uses to melt hearts.  He loves to play with other kitties and would get along fine with cat-savvy dogs.  When you come meet him,  you may notice a small scar on my neck and a scab on my ear from the allergic reaction, but please don’t let that stop you for seeing how beautiful and loving he is.

He is  neutered, current on vaccines, microchipped and litter box trained.  Take him home for Thanksgiving and give him something to be extra thankful for: a new forever home!

Donna

ADOPTED January 2014, after almost eight months at the shelter!  She was certainly well-loved among staff, volunteers and visitors, but we are thrilled she finally found a forever home!

Hi! My name is Donna and I am a petite, 10 year old, spayed, tuxedo (black and white) cat.  I might be 10 years old but age is just number, right? I am still very active and kitten-like. I love to romp around and be petted. I am current on vaccines, microchipped, and have wonderful litterbox habits.

cat of week 07-13-13 donnaI actually have a microchip that goes all the way back to Massachusetts so I have travelled a very long way just to find a forever home.  I am free to a senior anytime and free to the first qualified applicant on Sundays. Come meet me soon; I’ll be in the lobby!

Johnny T and Chuck

cats of the week 08-03-13 chuck and johnny

UPDATE:  Adopted together, and giving their new family lots of laughs and love!

Johnny T and Chuck have been at the shelter all of their lives (except for when they went to a foster home to get socialized and gain weight).  There are brothers but do not necessarily need to go to the same home.

They are both very friendly and playful.  Both are neutered, current on vaccines, litterbox trained, and microchipped.  Both are 4 month old, black and white, domestic short hair kittens with hearts of gold.  They get along great with other cats, cat-savvy dogs, and all ages of people.  Chuck is the one with a little mustache, and Johnny T is the one with the bandit mask.  Consider adopting 1 or both of these wonderful boys. We promise you won’t regret it!

River and Frank

cats of the week 02-02-13 river and frank webUPDATE:  Adopted together!

Meet River and Frank! River is a 15 year old, toothless grey tabby.  Frank is a 10 year old, black and white cat. They were both owner surrendered to us when their previous owner could no longer take care of them due to health problems. They are loving cats and miss being a part of a family.

These senior guys are very low maintenance and would enjoy getting to spend their golden years together.  They are both neutered, current on vaccines, litter box trained, and microchipped.  River eats canned food due to being toothless but other than that, they are both good to go.  Come see how precious these two boys are today!
