We are happy to announce that after months of testing, surgery and recuperating... Scotty is ready to make his adoption debut!
Thanks to LittleShelter's dedicated staff, Scotty received a new leash on life. His liver issues are now under control so he can live out his life in peace. LittleShelter’s medical staff also fixed Scotty's cherry eye which had been causing him discomfort. Now that he is feeling like a brand dog, this happy boy is ready to meet his furever family and give this story a happy tail ending.
While Scotty is busy screening applicants for his new home, LittleShelter is still in need of donations to cover his $10,000 life saving surgery.

STORIES WITH HAPPY ENDINGS ARE THE BEST
Hope Has Been Adopted!
When Hope arrived at LittleShelter 5 years ago, she was very frightened and confused. She wouldn’t let anyone touch her and she struggled to adjust to being in a place where she had so many feline roommates. Our vet decided to help her adjust, by putting her on Prozac to help ease her anxiety. It was a slow process and our volunteers spent hours each day working to socialize Hope.
Hope turned out to be an extremely affectionate cat, ready to prove that she could be someone's dream companion. She became famous around the cattery for jumping onto visitors' backs and riding around on their shoulder. Despite all of this, we still found her being overlooked by families. Then one day a gentleman came in looking for a special kitty of his own, and Hope jumped right onto his shoulders, nuzzling him affectionately.
He fell in love with Hope and took her home. We are so happy now that she is in her furever home where her dad has told us she has become the queen of the castle. Just goes to show, you should never give up hope…

He's also a bit of a singer and will give a little howl to get your attention.
Macy is a sweet tabby cat who always looks alittle surprised. Her funny expression only adds to her personality, as a quirky cat who singles people out that she likes and follows them like a shadow. Macy likes to stay very close to the people she bonds with and begs for affection from them. We know she's just waiting for someone special to take her home. Could it be you?
