Cat of the Month - Pixie
Pixie is a 2 year old short hair, female brown tabby who came to NCHS in 2014. She has soft fur and may have some Bengal cat in her heritage. She also has a playful and friendly disposition.
She was found by a driver along Highway 41 near the zoo. Perhaps she wanted to get into the zoo to show off her Bengal coat. Pixie has had her tests and vaccinations; she has also been spayed and micro chipped.
Please come visit Pixie at the shelter, and if you have room in your home and heart, give her a new chance in a new home.
Kittens have arrived att NCHS. There are currently about 30 being bottle fed at foster homes, and about 20 kittens at the shelter. See our Kitten Page for the latest information.
Popeye's Story - A May Miracle
Popeye was born with deformed front ankles that turned in, which made walking impossible. We are happy to report that after wearing ‘popsicle splints’ for one month, he is now walking, running and playing like a ‘normal’ kitten and is ready for a family to call his own.
Good News - Popeye has been adopted and will go to a new home with his buddy Lulu.

About the North County Humane Society
The North County Humane Society was founded as Action for Animal's Rights in 1977, and moved to its current location in Atascadero in 1997. NCHS runs a “no kill” cat shelter, and the organization’s goals are to prevent animal homelessness and over population. The cat adoption center is open Tuesday through Saturday, and additional programs are available for spay/neuter, feral trapping, microchipping, and homeless kittens.
We are grateful for and depend upon the monetary, time, and in-kind support of donors, members, sponsors, and affiliates for our funding. We welcome your contributions. Please stop by and visit with the cats, kittens and friendly staff at our shelter.
