Vera: A Success Story
George is a stately 8-year old gentleman. (Well, maybe not always so stately--we've seen him do a double rollover.) He is a sweet, loving lap cat that loves human companionship. George was declawed by his previous family, so he doesn't feel comfortable around other animals or young children. If you are interested in adopting, please fill out our online adoption application.
The Gifford Cat Shelter is a cageless, no-kill facility founded in 1884 and sponsored by Ellen Gifford.
The shelter is a pioneer in creating an environment that does not confine cats to small, movement-restricting cages.
