Audie

Audie

Hi! My name is Audie! I'm a very social kitty and extra special. You see, I only have 3 legs! That makes me a tripod kitty. It's been challenging for me since I lost my former home so I'd sure love a second chance at love. Could you love me?

Beastly

Beastly

Hi! I'm Beastly! Don't be fooled by my name I'm a pawesome hunk of love! I get along with everyone and am probably one of the most easy going cats you might ever meet. I adjust easily to new situations and am basically super cool. The folks at Give Me Shelter think I might be a Japanese Bobtail cat mix. That's pretty cool if you ask me. Check them out on the Internet to see how much I look like one.

Concerned about me being FIV+? Here's some great reading material from Best Friends to free you of any worries. I can live a long healthy life and safely with other cats.  Ready to meet me?

Becky

Becky

THIS IS COURTESY LISTING for FAMILY DOG RESCUE (This is not a Give Me Shelter kitty)

Contact to ADOPT: adopt@ilovefamilydog.org

Meet Becky! Becky is about one year old, and was brought to Family Dog Rescue as a tiny kitten with her siblings, after a volunteer found them abandoned in a box. She was adopted quickly, but having been separated from her mother too young, Becky has been having some trouble adjusting to living in a home. While she can be very sweet and cuddly, she likes to decide for herself when she wants to be social and when she wants to withdraw and chill by herself. For this reason, she was not thriving in the adopters' one-bedroom apartment, where she had no place to go when she got overstimulated. Becky was surrendered back to Family Dog, to give her the chance to find a family with more kitty-experience, and with more room for her to set her own agenda.

Beverly

Beverly

Hi! My name is Beverly and I'm a rare orange female! I was a lost kitty in San Francisco and was sort of scared in the city shelter. I love to be loved but am not quite sure I trust people completely yet. I'm looking for a loving, compassionate and patience person to give me a home. A person who it cat savvy and will give me space to come out of my shell. I promise it will be worth your patience because deep down I'm a total love bug. Would you be the one to give me a chance?

Chellbear

Chellbear

I'm a rare orange female. Most orange tabbies are male, which means I’m basically a plush tangerine unicorn. I was abused and neglected, so I can be sensitive to loud noises and sudden movements. I'm looking for a quiet home and a long term relationship with a cat savvy adopter who will understand my cat body lingo and listen to me. That said, I adore attention and human companionship, and will open up if you have a little patience. Will you help me trust again?

I love to play, get along with my kitty furiends and am a super snuggler with the right person that knows how to bring that out of me. I'd love to have a kitty playmate in my forever home. Since I'm a tiny bit shy I'd really love a family that will help me continue to build my kitty confidence. Ready to take me home?

Hi! My name is Cleo! My person was became ill and could no longer care for me. Sadly, I was surrendered to the city shelter. I can have a bit of tortitude, yes it's true a tortie with 'tude. But once you understand me I don't think we will have any trouble at all. I have very clear cat signals so it's super easy for cat savvy folks to understand.

Diva

Diva is my name and diva is my game. What can I say? How can anyone not be a fan of THIS beautiful butt? I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to be around my person. NOT a fan of other cats...let’s be clear here, I am the best. All those other kitties are so below my level. You’d better be savvy cuz I’ll bring the sass. If you make me the queen of your catstle, I’ll look at you like you’re the only star in my sky. I’m searching for a long term relationship with a warm lap and someone who will appreciate the love I have to give and make me their one and only. Take me home!

Harley

Harley

Hi! We are Harley (female) and Mini Cooper (male, white nose)! We are litter mates and good buddies. We get along well with the resident cats in our home too. While we'd love to be adopted together, it's most important that we are adopted with a buddy that enjoys playing with us. Kittens are better in pairs - we play, we keep each other company when you're away and then we snuggle with you when you're home with us. We can be very shy at first and are looking for an experienced adopter to work with us like our foster mom has to help us be confident full grown kitties. Adopt us together!

Muggles

Muggles

Hi! My name is Muggles! I was rescued from living in deplorable conditions after my person died. My leg was broken and the bone was infected when I came to Give Me Shelter.  Give Me Shelter had the opportunity to potentially save my leg versus amputation. They knew if we opted not to amputate it would be a long, costly road to recovery. The bone infection had to be cleared prior to surgery, a pin placed in her leg to stabilize the break with an additional 8 weeks of healing without guaranteed success. I am delighted to share that I have gained complete mobility of my leg and am ready for a permanent home.

Oscar

Oscar

Hi! My name is Oscar but they call me Oscar de la Rue since I was rescued from the streets by a Good Samaritan. They took me into their home and I was a snuggle bug. As you can see from my picture I'm a little rough around the edges and am ready for a loving home. Unfortunately, I wasn't a good fit with the resident cats. I played a bit too rough for the finder with her cats so she surrendered me to the shelter. Fortunately for me, Give Me Shelter was able to take me in and now I'm looking for a truly forever home.

Concerned about me being FIV+? Here's some great reading material from Best Friends to ease your mind. I can live a long healthy life. Could you give me a chance?

Rookie

Rookie

Hi! My name is Rookie! I'm a sweet and social girl that enjoys lap time. The thing I'm not sure I'm a fan of is other cats. You see I was always an only cat and then my family surrendered me to the shelter. It's been a little stressful being with so many felines and not enough space of my own. I won't rule out being with other cats, but it certainly has to be the right cat dynamic and slow introductions. Of course, if I had my choice...I'd be your one and only. Please give me a second chance!

Sam

Sam

Hi! My name is Sam! I'm a sweet and shy boy. It takes me a bit to warm up to new people, but I love to play and it's a great way to get to know me. I've also lived with other cats before so I get along with my kitty furiends and get along with the kitties in my foster home. I'd even benefit from a kitty playmate. I'm looking for a family who will go slow with me at my pace. I am also a Manx, what is referred to as a longy. Check out my video where you can see my tail.

Skye

Skye

Hi! My name is Skye! I am super shy. You see, I came from a stressful situation where I lived with squatters so I had no real home. Deep down I'm a sweet kitty that just wants to be loved. I just need to be with someone who is super patient with me and goes at my pace. Someone who will appreciate that I came out of hiding, that I gave a little mew or that my tail was up and I'm happy. I'm highly food motivated so that's a great way to get to know me. I promise if you're patient with me it'll be worth the reward. I can live by myself and do well with kitty furiends too. Please give me a chance.
