If you're looking to add a feline friend to your family, HAWS has just what you're looking for!
While summer is also known as "kitten season" at HAWS, we have lots of adult cats that are ready for their new furrever home, too. Singletons and bonded pairs, tuxedos and torties, the lazy and the playful - you'll find them here at HAWS!
Tux and Tawny are a bonded pair who sadly lost their home when their owner passed away. Tux is a handsome brown tabby and white male while Tawny, the female, is a unique "torbie" and white. Both cats are approximately 1 year old and ready to settle in today!
Broadway is a brown tabby who is a little over 3 years old. He's not a fan of baths or pedicures, but he loves to be brushed. (No worries about the pedicures - you can bring him back to HAWS on the 2nd Saturday of each month for help with that!)
Maybe there's a kitten in your future? How about Bert and Ernie? Or maybe Izzy or Onyx? Driver or Wankel? (Pop quiz: where does the name "Wankel" come from? Before you Google it, here's a hint - our gearhead caretaker named that one...)
It's a PURR-FECT time to adopt 4 feline paws from HAWS!
