Unfortunately, not all of the cats we take in at the Ferndale Cat Shelter are so easy to adopt. Some cats are surrendered to us at an older age, some have health problems, some are shy, and some cats don’t do well with other pets. Many animal rescues and shelters euthanize these cats, but as a no-kill cat shelter, the Ferndale Cat Shelter believes that every cat deserves a loving home, no matter its age, condition, or temperament. Most cats in our Forever Fosters program typically have one of the following conditions.
- They are older in age
- They have health challenges
- They have a virus such as Feline Leukemia
- They are shy or grumpy
- They do not get along with other pets
