About the shelter:
The shelter is said to not be owned by the people but by the cats that stay in it. Cat lovers all over came together to provide a place for the ever growing population of cats in need. The shelter includes five glass rooms for the lots of kitties looking for loving homes, two intake rooms for either sick or new cats, and much more. The shelter has lovely supporters and volunteers to help maintain and run it.
Ashley is a super sweet cat that is always looking for love and ear scratches. Ashley is currently in a loving foster home until she is spayed and ready for a forever home.

Harley was rescued from a car shop around the time the movie Suicide Squad came out, hence the name. She was found hiding in a car bumper and we later found out too she has large scabs and cuts from scratching at fleas. She's a little shy but full of love and energy. She's currently being fostered.
