Special Cats Need Caring Homes
Brave and Wilson
We are featuring two Special Needs cats this month, and both have FeLV (feline Leukemia virus) which is contagious to other cats. This means that they must live indoors only and cannot have direct contact with other cats (unless they also have FeLV).
Brave is a cute, 2 year old, black and white “Tuxedo” female. She was only 11 days old when she and two brothers were found in a bucket in a shed. The “bucket babies” were brought to NCHS and cared for until they were ready for new homes. Brave was adopted for almost a year but her pet guardian couldn’t keep her and she was brought back to NCHS. Now we are trying to find a new person to care for this adorable, cuddly and playful cat.
Wilson is a handsome buff colored male tabby who was found as a young stray kitten in San Miguel. NCHS tests all cats and kittens for FeLV and FIV and he tested positive for both. As NCHS is a no-kill shelter, Wilson has been living with other cats in special housing for over a year. He is a very spunky, fun young cat who is waiting for that compassionate person to adopt him.
Brave and Wilson live together with other cats at NCHS and could go to the same home. There is no charge to adopt either cat, but we also can’t guarantee their lifetime health. Are you the caring person to give these special cats a new home and second chance?

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.
