Adoptable Cats

HSCI always has a variety of cats looking for their forever home: kittens, adults, short-hair, long-hair, tabby, exotic. Our pets are vetted and handled regularly by staff and volunteers so they are healthy and socialized!

We update this page often as new cats come in and others go home, so all cats available may not have a photo yet. So we encourage you to visit the Pet Adoption Center in person!  You'll find all you need to know about our adoption application process on our Adoption Information webpage.

And if you want to see photos of the pet that have already found new homes, visit our Galleries of Adopted Pets.

Cats that have the Very Important Pet! Very Important Pet logo have a reduced fee of $30!  Look for the logo on their files by their kennels.

Featured Cat!

Bucky is a 4 year old DSH grey tabby. Bucky has been with us for almost a year now and is hoping to finally find her forever owner. She is a beautiful tabby girl and for whatever reason, we are unsure of, she is getting overlooked. She is a great girl who will follow you around and who will rub up against your legs to show you affection. She is playful, and curious, yet still likes to curl up next to you. A great mix of a personality.

Springfield is a 4 month old, female, black DSH kitten. If you are looking for playful, then you have to come see Springfield. Playful and adorable this little girl will try to get any other cat to jump and pounce with her. She thinks every cat will like her and she doesn't understand when some cats tell her no. She loves to cuddle with the other cats as well. So we would say she does fantastic with other cats or kittens. Springfield is a bit feisty and will need plenty of toys to keep her entertained. She does love to be held and will purr like a boat if you give her attention.

Callie is a 7 year old female DSH calico. Talk about a beautiful cat. With her beautiful markings and piercing eyes it is very hard to forget Miss Callie. Callie can be shy with new people but warms up fast once she gets to know you. She loves attention once she knows you and loves to have her back scratched. Callie is a social eater, she likes to eat while you are giving her attention. It is quite funny. Callie will need an owner who understand she isn't the most playful cat, but is so very sweet.

Daisy is a 2 year old DSH Torti female. Daisy is a bit shy at first. She is always cute and quiet. When you give her attention, that is when she lights up and shows you her adorable, cuddly personality. You have to come to her to see it though. She loves your attention and loves to give kisses. She will roll on the floor in front of you and let you rub her belly. She will sit on your lap and relax the day away with you. Daisy is content in her own world by herself but she really lights up when you interact with her.

Lily is a 10 year old black and white female with adorable markings on her nose. Lily was very much spoiled by her last owner and could lose a few pounds, however we are hoping her forever owner will also spoil her with endless amounts of love. Lily is a cat that tends to keep to herself. She does good with other cats but tends to not interact with them. Lily is a bit of a spoiled girl as mentioned so she is very picky with certain foods. She likes to be treated like a queen and why not!

Tripper is a 2 year old DSH black and white female. Tripper will need to be the only cat in her home as she does not get along with other cats in the room. She however, loves any and all people. She will cry for your attention and had the cutest little meow. She loves to sit on your lap and be pet. Tripper will be more of a cat that likes to lounge in a window or on your bed. When we got tripper in the shelter she was matted so bad, from lack of being cared for and groomed, that we had to completely shave her back. Her hair is finally growing back and she is back to her pretty self.

She is a picky female. Robin is a sweet girl who is content with nothing more than a soft bed and a window to look out of. So loves any and all people as long as they are giving her attention. Robin is more of an independent cat and will not need a ton of interaction.
