CFA offers a small, personable rescue and adoption program. Our rescued animals are housed at the CFA office and with board members until they are healthy and ready for adoption. Finding the perfect home and match takes time and personal attention!
Chloe is a sassy senior in search of her forever home. Chloe has been spayed and is up-to-date on her vaccines. She is picky when it comes to the company she keeps. She does not get along with children, dogs or other cats. If you are interested in meeting Chloe, give our office a call!
Sweet Varro was found tied to our gate. It's taken time and patience, but with lots of love (and canned food!) he has opened up to be quite the affectionate cat. He loves to be pet and is a gentle soul that is now ready to be adopted. Varro is very unique in both his appearance and personality. We had to check to be certain he had his claws! There doesn't appear to be a mean bone in his body.
If you're interested in meeting Varro, please call our office to set a date and time.
Hormel the Hammy
Hormel was abandoned in a shopping cart outside of a local Dollar Tree store. The cardboard sign attached read "Please Take". If you live in the Oly area, you know that the weather has been rainy and windy lately. A concerned citizen scooped him up and brought him here. Hormel is pretty well equipped, though! He'll go to his new forever home in a hamster cage with some extra bedding, food, snacks, cleaner and a play tube (although, we think the tube is missing a piece). The cage comes with a working water bottle. Are you looking for a tiny new family member? Adoption fee is only $25! Call our office to set an appointment to meet this adorable bundle of cuteness!
You can also visit our Petfinder page at http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/WA446.html. CFA can provide a 'courtesy' posting for pet owners needing to place their animals in another home.
If you have a pet that needs a new home, you may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact information, the pet information and a picture. We would be glad to create a "courtesy posting" on CFA's Petfinder page. You may also post a message on CFA's Facebook page as well.
You may download our adoption application here: CFA Adoption Application.
Thank you for your continued support and patience as we look towards the future to "help those who cannot help themselves."

Cost of Adoption: $80 cat | $100 dog
by Michael M. Middleton, who adopted Blackie in 2012
To live the life of a cat
would well be worth
the few years given.
A life of true freedom,
at peace with oneself,
is a life that’s worth the livin’!
To live each moment in wonder…
like a child
the world to see;
to simply play and to run
or lounge in the sun;
that seems like a good deal to me.
Four Socks: In December 2011, my cat Molly began to get sick, and, due to liver failure, I had to put her down in January 2012. That was a very hard thing to do. I wasn’t ready to get another cat right away, so I waited a few months. Around late March or early April of 2012, I had been trying to find a female tuxedo kitten to adopt. I tried all avenues I knew about, Craigslist, PetFinder, etc. None of these options worked out for me. I had contacted JoAnne from Concern for Animals the first part of April, and explained to her what I wanted. She told me that she had a cat named Blackie who just had kittens and some were female tuxedo kittens. She sent me photos via e-mail, and I fell in love with the one she had named 4 Socks.
I went to meet her at the CFA house when the kittens were about 3-4 weeks old, and definitely knew that I wanted to adopt 4 Socks. I brought her home on May 12, 2012, and have enjoyed having her ever since. I re-named her Amelia. She is such a beautiful cat, and very playful. I found it interesting that she was born May 22nd, and my cat Molly, that I had lost in January, was born on March 23rd, just different years. Amelia has some of the traits that Molly had, but she also has her own personality. I am glad I was able to adopt Amelia, as she has been the perfect cat for me. My other cat Mittens has adapted to her well.
I am glad Concern for Animals is there to help the animals that need a home, and encourage everyone to support them in whatever manner you can, whether it be financial, time volunteering, or fostering animals until they get their forever home. They are a great organization. - Brenda Taylor
