This is only for our special Friday hours of 4pm – 7pm. So come out and meet our wonderful cats and kittens available for adoption and check out our new additional adoption hours beginning August 1st.

Our Adoption promotion for August will be ‘Put away your ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ and come check out our ‘Furry Shades of Grey’. Any grey cat or kitten, or a grey and white or white with grey, is available for adoption for only $45 with a companion of any color available for only $25. We have many beautiful grey or grey and white combination cats and kittens available. Come meet them and choose one or two for your very own.

In August, the ICS will be hosting several fundraising events:
