Adopt a working cat

Some cats come to our shelters with histories and temperaments better suited to an outdoor lifestyle. These cats may live in a barn, stable or other outdoor setting where they have a “job” and a better quality of life. Learn more.

No time limit

Fun Fact

There is no time limit for how long a pet can stay at the Dumb Friends League. Adoptable pets remain in our care (or sent to a foster home if they need a break from the shelter) for as long as it takes until they are adopted.

Paws to Give

Thank you for your generosity!

Each paw donated on our holiday “paws” trees helped a homeless pet feel love this holiday season! Nearly $2,000 was donated, and from everyone at our shelters, thank you.
