Hi… my name is Samra,

You say you’re looking for a lap cat? Well, be careful what you wish for, ‘cause if you adopt me, you may never see yours again! Now that’s not to say that I don’t do other “stuff,” like rolling on the floor for belly rubs, following you around the house, and engaging in the enchanting stuff kittens do (at a year old, that’s what I still am!), but bottom line is I just want to be with you! I arrived here with my feline friends from a shelter that was closing, and although it was a long trip, we’ve all settled in and are ready to move on to real homes for the first time in our lives. I hope you’ll be the one to give me mine!

Hi… my name is Lollie,

Comes with Free Vet Care for Life.

Don’t ever let them tell you a gal’s too old for a spa-like “makeover!” Well, that’s what I got when I arrived at TALGV after my mom died because my grooming had been woefully neglected for a very long time (my coat was completely matted and my nails were growing into my paws!). Right now I’m sporting a “lion cut,” but when it grows out I’ll be the gorgeous, longhaired Siamese/Himalayan mix I’m meant to be. I’m a totally sweet, 10-year-old lady who ADORES attention (well, just being with you!) and since I’m “on the older side,” I qualify for free vet care, so now’s the time to bring me home and watch the transformation!

Hi… my name is Scoots,

Note: Bio needs update.

For a “teenage mom” who was found foraging in the desert over a year ago, I’m a gentle girl at heart. My family said although I’d led a hard life, I was still playful and that I got along famously with their dogs but not their cats. So what I need now is a “cat free” home (a friendly dog might be OK), and person who’ll schmooze with me now and then. Although I tolerate the other cats here, they’re kinda getting on my nerves, so I’d love a home where I have my own space and can enjoy the freedom to explore the house or just hang out in a sunny window or on a lap. Won’t you give me a home where I can have the fun, easygoing life-style I’ve earned?

Hi… my name is Katie (aka Jamie),

(bio needs update)

The world is full of sweet, understanding people, which is why I believe I’ll find my perfect home even though I’m not an “everyone” kind of dog. Most noises scare me, crowds do, too, and I haven’t been good with some children. But you know what I do very well? Cuddle on your lap. Indeed, for the right grown-up person or couple—patient and kind—I’ll be a very loving, devoted companion who asks only for a quiet home, a couple of toys, and a lap to snuggle in. I’m a 5-year-old, 13-pound female with a gray and white wavy coat. One of my front legs is crooked, but I’m used to that, and here’s hoping you’ll find me adorable in my own little way. If so, may I be your little dog forever?

Hi… my name is Coco,

Adopted 2-20-18

I was found in the shadow of Mount Hopkins, sitting in the shade and probably looking very peaceful because I am a sweet, harmonious kind of dog. However, on that day, my finders reported I was very thirsty, hungry, and limping a bit. I welcomed that rescue with all the big dog gratitude I could muster. And although I’m only 74 pounds, volunteers tell me I have big dog charisma, too—a kind of charm that comes from my gentle, friendly personality. I’m about 1-1/2 years old, a gray Staffie mix female, and I’d probably been alone for a while, judging by my dirty coat. As you know, that’s no way for a dog to live—I’m made to be someone’s loyal, loving companion. And maybe—my hopes are high—that someone is you.

Hi… my name is Loader,

Adopted 2-26-18

Comes with Free Vet Care for Life.

Like the “S” on Superman’s shirt, the perfect “U” on my forehead says I’m really something unique! And what my rescuers had to say sums it up: “Loader would make a great pet for children, a person looking for comfort and companionship, or someone’s first cat. He’s good with everyone, wasn’t nervous around my two cats or dog, and wants nothing more than to be indoors with the family. He greets us when we arrive and will come when called. He’s just a super sweet guy who’d make a great ‘therapy cat’!” My only “minus” is that I’m FIV positive (but have free vet care in case I need it), so must be an only cat (or live with another FIV feline). So come meet me ‘cause seeing really is believing!

Hi… my name is Tip,

Adopted 4-14-18

Comes with Free Vet Care for Life

When you first meet me, your first thought might be, “Oh Granny, what big ears you have”! Well, OK, never mind that I’m a guy, you get the idea! And then there’s the handsome silky grey and white coat and rumbly purr that complement the package. I’m a quiet, pretty much one-person fellow (who isn’t awfully fond of men) who’s lived with other cats and a dog all my life. My mom was unable to care for me any longer as she had too many of “the others,” so my aim in life is to find another laid back home and person to call my own. At 15 years of age I have free vet care too, so why not take advantage of a stellar deal and take me home?

Hi… my name is Riley,

Adopted 3-14-18

If you enjoy happy surprises, I could be your very next one! I was abandoned in the back yard of a vacant house; the couple of rough spots on my coat may come from living outside or something else. So, you might expect me to be sad or even grouchy. Instead, I’m one of the happiest, sweetest guys you’ll ever meet. And I’m friendly to just about everyone (except cats, and, in fairness, they didn’t welcome me with open paws). A 2-year-old Staffie mix male, I’m good on a leash and great at relaxing—especially if I can sit next to you (or closer). The volunteers say I have a way of making every day better just by being me, and I say that’s because I’m grateful to be around kind, happy people—like you!
