In 2005, an explosion destroyed the Mason County animal shelter, which had been a no-kill shelter. After some very hard times, a new building was built. Now, the county commission has set a limit of 40 dogs and 36 cats at the shelter, so they are forced to euthanize for space. They need the help of rescuers, volunteers, adopters, supporters, transporters, and foster homes to keep their euthansia rate down.

Adoption and rescue inquiries are welcomed from nearby residents and out of state residents.

Help for multi-cat homes

The more cats in a home,the more territorial problems and stresses there can be. But, there are things that one can do to avoid some problems and help solve others.

The most important thing when taking in another cat is a planned, slow introduction over a great many days, with gradual, limited exposure before full-time free mingling is allowed. Read about how to introduce cats for the best outcome by clicking here.

Even if the cats get along, they may feel crowded sometimes, depending upon how many cats one has, such as when one cat wants to lounge in a certain area, and another cat is already there, or when one cat "forces" a housemate out of a desired spot.

Adding an outdoor enclosure can make a new "room" for the cats, for three seasons, anyway, to help reduce territorial disputes.

Things Cats Need

Cats need, food, water, shelter, litter boxes, toys and other supplies. Click here for some recommended items.

But, they also need vet care. When you adopt a cat, you do need to have some money set aside, or available credit on a credit card, to cover unexpected vet bills. Like humans, cats do get sick or injured from time to time. Start now setting aside a few dollars each week so when the day comes and you face an unexpected $200 or more vet bill, you will have the money.

If you find yourself without funds to provide for needed vet care, you can apply for a special credit card for medical bills at http://www.carecredit.com. In most cases, you can get instant approval. Your cat does not need to wait for medical care, nor should he or she.

In most cases, the longer one waits, the more severe the problem becomes- and then even more costly to treat, if it even is possible to treat after waiting too long. Cats hide illnesses well, so by the time you notice a cat is sick, the cat is usually very sick.
