NOTE: Simon, Mr. Fluffy, Hazel, Lexi, and Stitches are NOT available for public viewing. If you are interested in anyone from this group, please submit an application using the link in their bios. Doing so is the ONLY way to potentially be selected for a meet and greet.
This big girl is Hazel, and she’s still deciding if humans are friends or foe! Although quite shy, she’s coming around slowly with the help of our dedicated staff and volunteers. The ideal home for her is quiet and patient to let her warm up and adjust to life with humans. With patience and kindness, she can be a fiesty loving girl.
Thank you for your interest in adopting! Do you think you could be Stitches’ person? Apply today!
