Featured Cat

Henrietta the cat

Henrietta, adult female

Henrietta is about three years old and is the best lap cap in the main room. She loves people and will shower you with attention, but she likes to be the queen of the castle and doesn't get along well with other cats. If you're a home that would be happy with just one cat, she's the perfect match for you! Read more about Henrietta.

Reduced Adoption Fees for Cats

Small Miracles is reducing adoption fees temporarily to encourage adoption and open up space to save even more felines.

The adoption fee for one kitten remains $135, but if you adopt a pair, the fee is just $200. Kittens love a playmate and companion, and they can share a litterbox and water bowl. Consider opening your home to two kittens instead of just one!

To help find homes for our adult cats, we have reduced the adoption fee to $50 for adult cats.

Become a Volunteer or Foster Home

Do you love animals and want to get involved in rescue work? Small Miracles has several volunteer opportunities to fit various levels of commitment.

We are currently seeking volunteers to grow our foster home network. Fostering is a rewarding experience where you temporarily house animals in need in your own home until they are ready for adoption. Foster animals include pregnant dogs/cats, nursing dogs/cats and their litters, dogs/cats recovering from injuries or dogs/cats in need of socialization. We recommend having a separate area in your home to care for foster pets; a spare bedroom, bathroom or laundry room works great. The shelter provides all medical care and dry food. Foster homes provide wet food, litter for the kitties, bedding and daily care of the animals. Supplies you purchase to care for foster animals may be tax deductible.

We are also seeking volunteers for shelter and partner pet store operations. Volunteers are needed for cleaning cages, walking dogs, facilitating adoptions and showing dogs at pet stores on weekends.

Due to insurance regulations, volunteers must be at least 18 years old.

To fill out a foster/volunteer application, visit the Volunteer page.
