These sweet cats are looking for a Candyland they can call home.

A while ago, we had posted asking for food and litter donations for a veteran we are helping. To recap slightly, His kindness, and love of cats, helped him to rescue many stray and abandoned cats. However, as the number grew, he was no longer able to afford spays and neuters, and things got out of hand. 

The population has grown beyond what he can handle, and he has asked for help. All of the food donations from people have gone a long way, and we are all very grateful! He was so very touched, and appreciative of the outpouring of help. He is a good man, trying to help the 30 plus cats in his care. But life keeps throwing punches at him, which had made it so very hard for him and his family to get back on their feet.

We have adopted out 8 of his cats and kittens so far, and have 6 adults, and 3 kittens in foster. There are still 15 – 20 more we need to help adopt, and or get into foster. All have been spayed, neutered, and vaccinated, except the nursing mom, and one pregnant mom. 

The majority of the Candy Cats are friendly, and ready for their Forever Families! We are working on descriptions for all of them, but it is challenging!
