About Aaliyah

Meet Aaliyah, or as we like to call her, Ali. This sweet little gal came in to the Society when she was only a few days old. As an orphan, Ali didn't have a mama cat to take care of her so she was fostered with a member of our team. Her foster mom had to wake up every 2 hours for the first few weeks just to bottle feed this gal - and it was well worth it! Ali has grown up to be a spirited young cat who enjoys fetching, snuggling, and the company of feline peers. She is currently in foster care while we work to find her a forever home. Ali is a special needs adoption as she is experiencing "chronic diarrhea" on and off her entire short life. Our veterinarians suspect this may be a lifelong condition. For that reason we're looking for a very special adopter to make her a part of their permanent household. If you'd be interested in learning more about Ali, and potentially scheduling a meeting with this amazing little survivor, email our foster team at

Meet Gino. Mister tall, dark and so handsome. While we don't know much about this four-year old's history, it was clear when he came to us that he had a rough start in life. Thankfully, Gino is a very smart boy with a resilient spirit and zest for life....especially when it comes to snuggling. This guy loves love and is happy to meet and hang with just about anyone. If you're they type of person who likes to wind down at the end of the day and chill, Gino is your guy. Yep. He's a 75 pound lap dog. And, if he can't sit on your lap, he's happy to sit on your feet. Gino enjoys walks, playing ball, people watching, sleeping on the couch, bully sticks and tug of war (good luck trying to win---he's one strong boy). With that said, we think Gino would do best in a home without children since he doesn't know his own size or strength. Gino also needs to be in a home without other pets. He came to us with some dog reactivity issues, but has been working through them while in foster care. He's a smart boy and is quickly learning that the world isn't such a scary place after all.Gino knows sit, down, look at me and stay. His foster mom is so impressed by how quickly he learns and adjusts to new environments. While Gino is a big, strong boy, he has a very gentle soul and will flourish with someone who will teach and guide him in a kind, positive manner. Chopped up hot dogs also help. Lastly, we think Gino might have allergies (who doesn't these days?), so regular ear cleanings and Benadryl are part of his current regimen.You can check out Gino's Facebook page if you want to see him in action in his foster home: Gino the Snuggle Bug.
