About Warhol

DLH, Orange and White
Male, Adult

Warhol is one of the cats we've recently taken in from a semi-feral cat colony. He is not socialized and would do best with a patient home that would give him time to socialize and adapt and understand he is not really a "lap cat". He may also do well as a barn cat. We define barn cats as cats allowed outdoors to hunt, etc. but still have access to an indoor shelter to protect them from the elements. We commonly adopt barn cats out in pairs.

"I have been very vocal about my displeasure, but on the other hand, you humans should be happy becaust that means I've given you plenty of warnings as opposed to going right for the bite. Some of my handlers describe me as very hissy and hidey, known to even growl at them. I consider it fair warning. You get in my space, I will get in your face. Enough said. I may be smaller than some of the other boys from our semi-feral colony, but I'm very manly too! Right now, I can't imagine being a snugly lap cat like some of them are starting to weaken and become, and I hold my own ground insisting I'll be a barn cat or at least partially outdoors. But I don't know, maybe someone really good with cats will be able to bond with me over time... No, what am I saying? Madness!"

Can't adopt Warhol but want to help him out? He's actually got a GoFundMe going on if you want to give toward it. He's one of the many semi-feral cats we’ve rescued lately thanks to the joined efforts of the community here in Hancock County. https://charity.gofundme.com/o/en/campaign/it-takes-a-village-help-spca-neuter-13-cats

Bella Shepherd mix, Golden tan brown Female, 3 years old Bella is a diamond in the ruff. She desperately needs a dog-savvy home that has the time, patience and ability to work with her to earn her trust. She snuggles fiercely, plays like a champ, is highly intelligent, loves other dogs, and is very trainable. She suffers with a few behavioral issues that stems from a tough start in life. The details are muddy, but her puppyhood was not great. Due to her poor start in life, her mistrust of people is warranted and she will need a dog savvy home with no small children and likely no men. Bella adores most other animals and would thrive with a confident doggy mentor sibling to teach her how to 'dog' within a home. Once Bella earns your trust and understanding, she will go to the ends of her world to please and put a smile on your face with her goofy playstyle and love of the water and toys. If you feel like investing time, love, and heaps of patience and training into this gorgeous pup- it will pay tenfold.  "My life has not been an easy one, and yet I still find ways to shoulder on through! When you first meet me, I may seem like 'that crazy dog'. The truth is, I'm just not sure how to say hello! I want to love people, but having been born a feral dog and then having a rough start in my puppyhood means I got a lot of mixed messages about people, so I need someone who is really in-tune with dog behavior and willing to help me sort through it all. Once you earn my trust and love, I am super affectionate, silly, and committed to you. "I love to play with toys and splash in water! I do get possessive over my things since I remember the days when I had to scrounge just to be alive. So it would be good if my future person knew about resource-guarding behaviors and was willing to work on that with a trainer with me. I get nervous and shy with introductions, and that's when I kind of act crazy, but I'm not actually aggressive toward other animals. Give me time to introduce slowly and nicely to them, and I love all critters. I really love playing with other dogs and would LOVE to have a big brother or sister to show me how to dog. "Shelter life has been hard on me, since I was born wild and free, and I've been here for a year now, but I'm starting to adapt and find ways to cope thanks to the humans continued efforts. The best thing for me would be to get into a home that knows how to handle difficult, somewhat wild dogs and integrate them, and then I would be in heaven and my real personality would flourish." Bella has been evaluated by a professional dog trainer to determine the course of her rehabilitation plan, as most of it has been outlined above. The dog trainer determined that Bella's future family needs to be very aware of her resource-guarding and aggression that comes from that, have a plan for introducing Bella to people, animals, and anything new, and be willing to commit to work with a trainer in the long-term to help Bella find ways to better introduce and present when meeting new situations and coping in a home life. If you're interested in Bella, please feel free to contact us through email or by calling us at 667-8088 from 11 am to 5 pm. PLEASE NOTE: During our adoption process, we will do a vet check on your current pets or previous pets from the past 10 years to make sure they've been up-to-date with rabies shots (required by law for dogs and cats) and vaccines.

Kandinsky DMH, Gray and white Male, 2 years old Special notes: Kandinsky came from a semi-feral cat colony, so he is not very sociable. He may do better as a barn cat. We define barn cats as cats that are not meant for lap cuddles and snuggles and may hiss and swat. They are often food-motivated and may enjoy going outside for hunting excursions or to lay in the sun. We require that our barn cats all have an indoor shelter to protect them from the elements, so please don’t think of them as “outdoor-only” cats. “What do you people want with us kitties, anyway? There we were, trying to create our own feral colony, and then a bunch of you showed up and decided you were going to ‘help’ us? I guess it’s not so bad, though. I mean, the meals are pretty good, and we don’t have to fight for places to sleep. Then the girls aren’t always having kittens, and I can think about more important things than girls, like where the best hiding spot is or if I want to maybe even accept some pets from a human. I’m not totally used to people yet and still timid with them, but I do accept some affection now and then and may even bonk my head in for some good rubs from time to time. I very well might open up and get used to you people with enough patience and love…” Kandinsky was on medication for two weeks for an upper respiratory infection but he is back, available, and healthy! Can't adopt Kandinsky but want to help him out? He’s actually got a GoFundMe going on if you want to give toward it.

They are often food-motivated and may enjoy going outside for hunting excursions or to lay in the sun. We require that our barn cats all have an indoor shelter to protect them from the elements, so please don’t think of them as “outdoor-only” cats. “Do you human really think you can contain me, ME, the mighty Monet? I was queen of a colony, slayer of 10,000 mice, eater of birds (but not their feet because ew, those are hard). I am not meant to be contained! From my first day here at the shelter, I let the humans know I am not a pussycat. When they tried to contain me, I made a bolt for it. They labeled me a ‘flight risk’. So when they tried to touch me, I would give them a good old nip, show them I could do more than just bare these fangs. They still wouldn’t give up! I don’t know what you beastly creatures want from me, but I don’t want any of it. I am Monet and I am free!” Monet, we just want you to be safe, healthy, and loved, in whatever way you might accept that. Can't adopt Monet but want to help her out?

DSH, Gray and white Female, 1~ year old "Admit it, I look like a darling little baby kitten, what with my tiny size and my big green eyes and that tiny button nose. But despite how people thought I was a baby at intake, they quickly figured I was older when they took a look at my mouth. And then I bit their fingers off - okay, not really, but I thought about it! My markings make it look like I'm either grinning or grimacing, and really, either expression suits! I'm full of purrsonality, packed full of it for a mere 6 pounds! Sometimes my caretakers forget I can't be older than a year because I already act like a crabby old lady cat. I'm just an old soul and very mature for my age. "Now, don't take all of that sass as a sign I must be a mean cat. Unless you're like a super-sensitive snowflake or something. I'm just kidding you. But anyway, I'm not a mean cat. I just know what I like and know when to say, hey, that's enough! Don't try to fool me with sweet talk, either. Patronizing me is only going to get you a smack to the face. Just ask Stacie! I keep it real around here. "I don't want to deal with the antics of other cats. It's probably other cats that gave me ringworm! Yup, when I first came here, I had the worst case of ringworm out of all the cats that were affected. It was horrible! I'll never forgive other cats for that ever, ever again. I may not do great with households with small kids either, since I don't have a lot of tolerance for stupidity. Not saying your kids are stupid, but I'm just saying ... Same goes for dogs. Those might be worse than kids. Maybe. "My purrfect life would probably be as a single cat, being pampered and tended to by a family that knows how to treat me right. But I'm open to negotiations." Can't adopt Olivia the sass-master but want to help her out? You can always make a donation to help support the cost of her care! We rely on donations to continue to provide medical care as well as shelter, food, and enrichment for animals like Olivia while they wait for forever homes. We even have affordable sponsor-a-kennel options available. All of this and more can be found at our website, spcahancockcounty.org/donate show less

Staffie Terrier, golden fawn Male, 6 years old Medium/Large Special notes: very loyal and protective of his people, not good with other dogs or cats, needs to be watched carefully outdoors “I bet I know what you’re thinking, ‘Oh boy, another pittie that isn’t good with dogs or cats, he’s dangerous.’ I know some people think my breed is the worst. I get that. But you know what? That don’t matter because I’m FUN. Sure, I’m not good with other dogs or cats or animals in general; too high of a prey drive, but I’m super fun with people. I love belly rubs, as attested to by everyone that’s met me. I just really like to ham it up, you know? YOLO, which I just think is fun to say. YOLO, YOLO, YOLO. “I’m not one of those hyper crazy dogs though. I am just as happy vegging out with my people. We could watch TV all day and I won’t judge you. Then again, are people still judging each other for that nowadays? Anywhoozles, I’d make a great buddy for an adult household with a fenced-in yard, if I’m gonna dream up a perfect home. Little ones can’t control me on my leash if I see another dog or cat or something that I might want to chase, so I need someone who can handle me. “I know it sounds like a lot of ‘no this, no that’ with me, but I hope someone can look past that and see that I’d be a great buddy to hang out with and spend a life with. I just need the right home. Some of you might remember me from before, and the family that took me was super great, but something happened, I maybe was a bad boy toward a neighbor’s animal when I got loose one day, and now I’m here for my own safety and happiness. Yeah, I can’t help it. I just got a naughty streak. But I swear, that’s the worst of it! Honest to Rocky! That’s me. I’m Rocky.” Can't adopt Rocky but want to help him out? You can always make a small donation to support him. If you want to do even more, you can consider sponsoring a kennel for a year. These options and more are available at our website, spcahancockcounty.org/donate If you would like to know more about Rocky, please feel free to get in touch with us through email or by calling us at 667-8088 from 11 am to 5 pm.
