Every Wednesday at 9:10am, Gwen and Gunner feature a different pet that needs a new forever home here in the Basin. Sometimes it's a dog, sometimes it's a cat. They haven't had any guinea pigs, hamsters, birds or snakes---yet. But you never know!

Meet Kelso!


Looking for a laid back kitty that will also get along well with your other cats?  Kelso is your man!  This sweet boy is a year and a half Domestic Short Hair Gray-Tabby!  He is neutered and up to date on his vaccines and ready for his forever family to come see him!  Kelso has had a life of being bounced around from person to person.  He was at his last home the longest when his owner suddenly passed away.  Kelso adjusted quickly to life in our cat house and gets along great with the other cats and staff.  He likes to lay in a sunny spot or on top of one of our many cat trees.   Does Kelso sound like he would be the perfect addition to your family?  Come down to the Sanctuary and meet him during our visiting hours 1-4:30pm every day except Thursday!  He can't wait to meet you!

And if for some reason you're not looking for a pet right now--please click SHARE and post this to your social media so we can help Kelso find his forever home. Or perhaps you're looking for a different new furry friend. There are so many fur babies who would love to meet you-so stop by and pay them a visit! There are plenty of dogs and cats to choose from who would love to be your next family member.
