Vera: A Success Story
Adam is a shy kitty who is getting braver every day. This 4-year-old is especially affectionate before breakfast time, when he rubs up against our legs and head butts us. Adam is used to living with other cats, so he would have to go home to a kitty who wanted a buddy. 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.
