Adopt a Cat

Rescue Ridge is a ‘last-chance’ shelter. Staffed primarily through the efforts and donations of volunteers, we find homes for animals that other shelters and people have given up on. Through the kindness of various boarding kennels and foster families, rescued animals are cared for until they find that final family to love them.

Check out a video of some of our amazing dogs and cats who have been helped through Rescue Ridge.  We could not do it without our wonderful adopters, contributors, and volunteers/fosters.  Many thanks to all of YOU!   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s4an_2Difko&feature=youtu.be

Hi, my name is Jamie. I am ten months old and I have white fur with orange markings. I have two brothers, named Duncan and Fergus. My brothers and I look very much alike. In fact some of the volunteers at Rescue Ridge call us the "creamsicle triplets". When we first came to Rescue Ridge we were pretty shy. Now we are feeling much better and we enjoy the attention we get from the volunteers. We are typical kittens. We love to run around, play and eat. We are ready to find wonderful homes and live with families that will give us lots of love and attention. We are neutered and up to date with our vaccines. Please apply to adopt at rescueridge.com and email rescueridgeshelter@gmail.com for a meet and greet.

Hi, my name is Rita and I am two and a half years old. I am black and white and I weigh only five pounds. Well, let me tell you a little about my personality. I am a little princess. If I was human I would enjoy dressing up, putting on make-up and getting pedicures. I love spending time with my favorite people. The best is when someone puts me on their lap and pets me. I just love this. Anyway, I am up for adoption at Rescue Ridge. I would do best in a home with no other animals. This is because I love to get a lot of attention. I am spayed and up to date with my vaccines.

Hey, I'm Tony known as Tony the Tiger. I am five years old and mostly orange. Do you know what they say about orange cats? Well let me tell you. They say orange cats are special and natural leaders. I definitely fall into this category. I was rescued from another shelter. They didn't like me there, because I gave them a hard time. I get along with other cats, but I need to be the boss. I am longing for a home to call my own. To be perfectly honest, I would prefer a home with no cats, dogs or children. Just me and a buddy, it doesn't matter if it's a man or a woman. I would love to hang out on a big soft chair in front of a sunny window. I think about this quite often and I know someday the right person will find me. I am spayed and up to date with my vaccines. Hope to meet you soon.

His gorgeous silver coat will make you fall in love as well as this sweet face. All he has known is a cage and a cubbie. Wouldn't it be great if he had a soft place to sleep at night?

Petri was found as a seat @ about 2 wks old. Today she's about 2 ½ - 3 mo old. Shes what u would call a Calico Marbled Tabby. She has long thick whiskers, fur on her ears, her lips make a perfect smile :), n a short but thick coat that's silky soft. Although she's considered short hair, she does have some length compared to other short haired kitties. Her features are striking! I tried to see wat cat breeds match n so far I've come up with... maybe she's part Norwegian Forest Cat??? The features fit besides the hair length. So I believe she's a Norwegian mix... She gets along well wit other cats, ferrets, & so far small dogs. Have yet to see her with a big dog... Extremely playful & spunky. This cat is hysterical & very entertaining! She is also a smuggler! Once she's played out she goes looking for a warm lap to climb on. Once she finds that lap, she is very thkful & shows it too! She will then continue to give u kisses & the purr machine begins! She even continues to purr in her sleep. She also loves to jump in bed n snuggle up during the cold nites. She's an absolute mush!!

She tested positive on her FeLV, feline leukemia test, much to my, as well as the doctor's, dismay. She shows absolutely no symptoms. The vet said she is most likely just a carrier, which means she will not show symptoms, but she cannot be around other cats. She can spread the virus through urine and saliva. She is a perfect pet for a family that only wants one cat. She cannot pass the virus onto humans or any other animals.
