Rescue adoption center things

older kittens hanging out in the kitten room

Some of the volunteers decided to add some vertical areas for the kittens and cats to hang out on.
shelves and stairs in the kitten room


the stairs lead up to a shelf on the far wall

another volunteer had her husband make shelves and hang them through the entire center



And check out this news from Colony Cats - the rescue we volunteer for:
Our adoption numbers for 2014 are 26% above the previous year of 2013.  Our 2014 adoptions were as follows:

327 Adult Cats (over 1 year) - this included 5 FIV positive cats and 6 cats over 10 years of age :)
151 Juvenile Cats (6 to 12 months)
496 Kittens (under 6 months)
 45 Adult Dogs (over 1 year)
 20 Puppies (under 12 mo)

Yep, those total over 1,000 adoptions....1,039 to be exact
