We believe that pets and people belong together; that financial circumstances alone are not reliable indicators of the capacity to love and care for a companion animal.

Adopt A Cat

Adopt A Dog

Orange: Sidekick
Like all sidekicks, I'm just plain good company. I like attention, and I also like my solitude. I don't go looking for trouble, but I'm no scaredy-cat, either. If you are looking for a steady companion to travel with you on the road of life, look no further.

Purple: Private Investigator
I'm working undercover to keep an eye on you and your household. You may not even know you're under surveillance. I can vanish into thin air if anyone or anything interferes with my investigation. If you need a cat who knows how to stay out of trouble and will always keep your secrets, I just might take your case.

Cats

Each adoptable cat is assessed based on level of interest in play, exploring, “talking,” and being the center of attention so that he or she can be placed into one of the nine color-coded “feline-ality” types that make up the Meet Your Match Feline-ality program. Green cats are savvy and adventurous, orange cats make the perfect companions and purple kitties are quiet, seek affection and stay out of trouble. The color is indicated on the cat’s kennel card, along with a short description, assisting you to find the cat of your dreams!

As an adopter, you also get a color based on your preference and lifestyle. On your visit, you will fill out a one-page Cat Adopter Survey. These simple questions will help us determine the perfect cat for your home. Sound kinda fun? What color are you? Your answers will tell us what your “color” is—green, orange or purple. Or download the survey below and bring it with you to the shelter.

As an adopter, you also get a color based on your preference and lifestyle when you complete the fun survey, it takes less than 5 minutes. These simple questions will help us determine the perfect cat for your home.  Sound kinda fun?  What color are you?  Your answers will tell us what your color is -- green, orange or purple.

  • Purple adopters are perfect for kitties who need time and encouragement to adjust to their new surroundings.
  • Orange adopters are a good fit with the quintessential companion kitty.
  • Green adopters are most successful with cats who quickly adapt to new situations.

Orange: Personal Assistant
You're working on the computer? Let me press the keys. Reading the paper? I'll hold the pages down for you. Watching TV? I'll just plop in your lap so you can pet me. I love an orderly household, don't you? I'll help you with all your chores, and I'll help you relax when we're done. You'll wonder how you ever managed without me.

Purple: Secret Admirer
When it comes to relationships, I'm very level-headed. I don't leap in paws first, if you know what I mean. But give me a little time, and then I'll shower you with purrs, head-butts, and plenty of lap time. In the meantime, you may not see a lot of me, but I'll be thinking a lot of you!

Green: Party Animal
I'm a cat on a mission: PARTY! I love to play and explore and test my limits. I'd love to play with you, but I can make a toy out of anything: pencils, post-it notes, potatoes. If you're looking for some laughs and someone to liven up the party, think about inviting me.

Green: MVP
I'm a savvy cat who knows the score. I'm pretty unflappable, too. I don't mind entertaining myself, but a human companion at the other end of the couch and a nice scratch behind the ears always make my day. If you're looking for a resourceful addition to your team, think about signing this Most Valuable Pussycat.

Green: Leader of the Band
I'm a cat who does everything in a big way. I not only like to be in the middle of things--I like to lead the parade. I'm an adventurous cat, but I'll still make plenty of time to show you my affectionate side. I'm the demonstrative type, you might say. Want a cat who's brimming with confidence? That's me.

Orange: The Executive
I have to say, I'm a busy cat. First, I've got to check out what's happening out the window. Next, I'll see if any closets or cupboards need looking into. And then there are my naps--can't be late for those. I can fit a little socializing into my schedule. Shall we plan on breakfast and dinner? I hope you like kibbles.

Every time you adopt a pet from the Pet Central Helps!  you enable us to save the life of another homeless pet in great need, and finding a great companion has never been easier!  This research based program was created by Emily Weiss, Ph.D., in conjunction with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). The program is designed to match an adopter’s personality, lifestyle, and energy level to a pet with the same traits. Making this match is the foundation for the human/pet bond to develop, increasing the potential for a successful, permanent placement.


Purple: Love Bug
Do you seek affection? I do! If you also like petting, purrs, and paws kneading your lap, I think we might have a LOT in common. I'm looking for "someone who enjoys quiet times and togetherness." Could that someone be you?
