Look who’s back 👀

Thelma has been returned to our shelter due to no fault of her own.  Thelma has been with us since the fall of 2019. She loves spending time with our volunteers, and sitting atop her “stoop”. She greets us at the door, comes running for her favorite treats, and enjoys spending time on our catio. This sweet girl can be shy at times, but needs a chance at a new life, and time to decompress from the shelter life.

Miss Thelma!

Thelma is a 5 year old, DSH tabby & white female! Thelma is a friendly girl, who doesn’t mind sharing her space, as long as she gets lots of attention, and cookies! This sweet girl enjoys curling up near a window, or in a super comfy bed! She isn’t a “needy” cat, but enjoys attention, and being in the presence of people.

Thelma is litter trained, up to date on core vaccines, has been dewormed, given flea and tick preventative, and has been spayed.

Her adoption fee is $90 but any potential adopter still needs an approved adoption application.

Our adoption application can be found on our website at
