Cats Available for Adoption


Clark Kit
Clark is a 9-month-old male drama cat. Having 3 other siblings, he learned early on the easiest way to get attention is to lie down in your path and stretch out as much as he can to get your attention! He’s very laid-back and relaxed, but he also loves to play. He manages to sleep in the strangest positions. His goofball antics will keep you laughing. He has medium whispy hair that gives him a roguish, wild look. His curiosity leads him to want to stick his head into anything and check it out -- including Yeti cups and refrigerators. He is up to date on his shots, neutered, microchipped, and ready to provide comical entertainment.

After being abandoned by his family and living on the streets for a few years, Franklin is ready to settle down in a quiet home where he can lie on a warm lap to his heart's content. His greatest love is human affection, and after a few days of figuring out that the house was a safe place, he now runs out to greet his fosters every time we walk in the door of his area. You will fall in love with his big head and serious face, and how he looks like he’s yelling when he does his cute little whispery meow. He is an active cuddler, so we will often be holding a book with one hand and petting him with the other.

Franklin has an issue with his back legs that causes him to walk a little funny, but diagnostic tests have ruled out any serious causes (we are continuing to figure out the issue, and will cover the costs of any treatment after adoption if needed). He’s still able to move around and jump up onto a couch height, but because of this he has no interest in cat trees or anything higher up!

Because of his past, it seems like he would be happier in a home without dogs, but it’s unclear whether he would do well with other cats.

Holmes is an orange tuxedo tabby bobtail who is about 6 months old (10/29). Those gorgeous copper eyes will just melt your heart. He is very friendly, and he views every lap as a place to cuddle. He is often found sitting on the screened porch or by a window observing the activities of the birds and chipmunks in the yard. His other favorite activity is wrestling with the other kittens in the foster home where he lives. This striking boy loves people— and wants to hang around with them 24/7.

Watson is an orange tabby bobtail (he has a half tail) cat. He’s about 6 months old (10/29). He is shy, so it takes a while for him to warm up to strangers. Once he does, he loves to sit with his humans and be petted. Besides observing nature from various windows and the screened porch, Watson’s favorite activity is wrestling with the other kittens in his foster home and playing "chase the kitty." He would do best in a home with just one or two people who will give him time to adjust to a new situation. He’ll reward you by being a loving companion.

Mr. K.
Mr. K's foster dad has this to say about him: "Mr.K is one lucky 12-week-old -- as of Aug 9, 2021 -- male orange tabby! I was walking down the road a few weeks ago when I heard a few faint mews comming from a hedge of bushes across the street. I went to investigate, I looked into the hedge, and he was looking at me. I motioned for him to come out, and I asked him if he would like some food and a place to stay. You could see the joy in his eyes! He was dancing between my feet as I headed home. He was so hungry I think he ate about 40 cans of cat food before he slowed down. He was one skinny guy. Life is an adventure, isn't it? Now, I could have never imagined that this cat was so special. He's very playful, intelligent, caring, respectful, and he's great with his litter box and food area. Yep, I'm the lucky one. He's also very respectful of my 9-year-old cat -- maybe because he outweighs Mr.K by 10 pounds. Ha! But I do think he would like a roommate who is closer to his age. He is a true joy to have around. If he's not playing, he likes getting on the couch with me and snuggling and being petted. He has a cat bed, a stadium blanket, a scratcher, and his toys. He's had his first shots and has no issues. I've had many cats and this is a good one. I'm glad he's here!"

Happy Tails -- Cats Adopted or Pending


Pounce Wayne
Pounce lives up to her name! She is a very playful, precious, and affectionate 9-month-old kitten. She gives her foster family "hugs." The first time you experience it, your heart will just melt! Do you stay at home? She would love to be your constant companion. Work all day? Coming home to her would be the highlight of your day! She wants to curl up on your lap and cuddle or play. You can’t help but laugh and smile at her silly antics and sweet meow. She runs straight over for loving as soon as you walk in the door. She is up to date on her shots now, microchipped, spayed and ready to find her forever home.

Vixen Noel
Meet SARG's Christmas rescue. Vixen Noel left the shelter the Friday before Christmas and has settled in very quickly to her foster home. This 2-year-old girl loves to cuddle and she loves playing just as much as cuddling. She will sit on your desk as you are working keeping careful watch of you. Vixen is a talker and will let you know that she wants to play or her breakfast. She was found with several other cats so would probably be fine in a multiple-cat household. She is currently in a foster home with 3 large dogs but has not mingled much with them. She does love people.

Meet Percy! This sweet little big-eyed grey tabby boy was born on 10/1/21, so is about 9 weeks right now. Percy was one of a litter who was rescued with his mom from under a porch when the kittens were only two days old. Now Percy is looking for his "forever" home. He's spent his life so far at a vets' office where he's been handled and loved on by all kinds of people. This is a kitten who knows that people are wonderful, kind, and loving, and is looking for a "forever" home with a family who will continue to provide the kind of love and care he's received so far. He's litter-trained (of course). Although Percy has soft tabby markings, he really appears grey -- almost like a Russian blue. This is a sweet boy who will steal your heart and cuddle with you every day!

Sam Gizmo
Sam and Gizmo are two of the most precious fur babies you will ever meet. They’re 7½ weeks old, born approximately October 24. They were found in a box at a thrift store, where someone had brought them after their mother had apparently died. They were only 2½ weeks old and absolutely starving. Gizmo was near death, cold and limp -- so tiny, weighing only a few ounces so that she fit in the palm of a hand. Her brother Sam was twice her size, but still starving. But Gizmo was a fighter in spite of being fragile. Both were bottle fed 'round the clock until they were old enough for solids. These two are true bosom buddies, doing everything together, including eating, playing, sleeping, even using the litter box. Sam is a roly-poly goofball with a cute, bobbed half-tail. Gizmo may be tiny, but she is fierce. She holds her own when she and Sam get into rough-and-tumble. Since Sam and Gizmo are so deeply connected, we would prefer that they be adopted together if possible. Sam and Gizmo are such special babies, and they deserve all the love and comfort in the world. If you have room in your heart and in your home for this precious pair, please fill out an application today.

Pansy is 9 weeks old and came into SARG a month ago (late October) with her little brother through a local shelter. They were weak, emaciated, and flea-ridden. She was brought to the vet, where unfortunately her brother passed away. She went to her foster as a solo kitten to live with two papillon dogs, and there she strengthened and healed. One month later she is 100% kitten -- all sugar and spice. Smart, curious, playful, and snuggly, she loves toys that dangle and jingle. When tired she finds her foster mom and climbs onto her shoulder or in the crook of her neck, purring and sometimes making up dough before going to sleep.

Pansy needs a true cat-loving home that will enjoy her social behaviors. She plays on her own nicely, but she wants to interact. In a perfect world she would have a playful cat or dog companion too. She's litter-trained and eats wet and dry food. The foster states, "She not the average cat. She shows a delightful personality and somehow she makes me feel loved and important. I think she is one of those 'lifetime' cats."

Do you want a cat with incredibly soft fur who is also a snuggle bunny? If so, then Licorice is the cat for you. He is about 4 months old (10/29) and his fur is medium length; based on his looks compared to other cats we’ve had in our program, we believe he may be part Persian. When he arrived at his foster home, he was totally black. Now small streaks of white are appearing in his fur. His foster mom did some internet research on this characteristic. Black cats carry a gene that suppresses tabby stripes. If this gene is not completely suppressed, you can see some faint tabby markings. Licorice’s tail has some slight white stripes. If you provide a lap for him, he will reward you with loud purrs. This little one is a miracle baby--he was starving in an overcrowded shelter where this little mite was in great need of care and substantial food. SARG scooped him up, and we're so glad we did. He's a sweet, loving little fur boy. There are two other kittens in his foster home, and he loves wrestling with them and then finding a person to cuddle. He would do best in a home with adults and middle school and older kids.

Meet Hermione! Hermoine is the one with the white blaze on her forehead. These siblings are 7 weeks old as of November 18. Rescued with their mom at two days old, these kittens have been handled and loved on constantly by the staff at the vet clinic that they currently call home.

Sassy Sasha is what Sasha's foster mom likes to call this quirky, sweet, 7-year-old Maine-coon-mix cat. Sasha has huge green eyes and thick, luxurious black fur. She is friendly and playful but calm, and she will let you know when she wants something, like attention or food, with a gentle swipe of her paw and a loud meow. Sasha greets all visitors at the door and likes to stay and "chat" with them. Definitely very curious.... She is comfortable with other cats and dogs and is perfectly litter-box trained. It is very easy to fall in love with this very special cat with lots of personality and catitude. Please open your heart to this beautiful feline and help her find the permanent home she so richly deserves.

Rosie's foster mom says "Rosie is the most cuddly little lap-cat I’ve ever met. She’ll lie down on you as soon as you sit, happily purr on your shoulder if you pick her up, and loves to just sleep nearby or watch when you’re busy. She is very curious and especially likes looking out the window,and exploring new cat trees and tunnels, but her favorite thing besides people is food. She has done really well with our dog, and has even cuddled with him, so I think she would be happy in many types of homes including with respectful dogs, other cats, and small children. Rosie truly is the ideal cat, and she’s ready for a new best friend!"

Luna is a pretty, black kitty with striking white whiskers and eyebrows. She is about 6 years old as of June, 2021. She prefers a quiet household without dogs or young children for her forever home, although she does well with the other cats in her foster home. Her foster mom has decided that Luna would be a great companion for a person who is a night-owl; she is at her friendliest late at night and comes to be petted and share the couch.

How could anyone not fall in love with beautiful, 6-year-old, domestic-long-hair, part-Maine-coon cat, Leo? This little black ball of fluff with mesmerizing green eyes is completely litter-box trained and gets along beautifully with everyone -- dogs, cats, children, etc. In fact, he is so friendly and outgoing, he greets everyone as they come in the front door. His foster mom thinks that perhaps he is a dog in cat's clothing. If you are interested in adopting a loving companion with movie-star looks, then Leo is the perfect cat for you.

Simone is a female 10 to 11 weeks old and has a clean bill of health! She has started on flea and tick prevention, received dewormer and her first vaccination. Simone has a lot of personality and loads of kitten energy, and she wants to play all the time -- preferably with her foster family or her red jingle ball. She likes to sleep with her family and snuggles in close every night. She immediately begins to purr and snuggle up when you pick her up or pet her. Simone is a special little baby and someone is going to hit the jackpot when they adopt her. Her next appointment for booster shots is July 19th.

Oreo Pepe LePew

Looking for a snuggle bunny? One of these two boys might fit that bill. Oreo and Pepe LePew are lively, cuddly, sweet, four-month-old, black-and-white kittens (as of May 8). They are people-oriented and really want a human lap to sit in. They can be adopted separately or together. They never met a toy they didn’t like to play with.

Arthur Furry
He’s the fluffiest and most cuddly of the supaw cats. While he looks larger than his brothers, he weighs slightly less. He keeps his foster family laughing with all his silly clown antics, then he loves to sit and cuddle to wind down. This kitten LOVES to play! He has a white spot on his belly and a few wild stray white hairs on his chest and paws but otherwise is black with black stripes, and when the sunlight hits his coat you can see dark brown highlights.
More photos of Arthur.


Diana Purrince
She may be much smaller than her brothers, but Diana can take on her own villains without them! She’s usually the first one to figure out most things and her brothers follow along. Her hobbies include eating, playing, cuddling, and sleeping. A comical mustache adorns her dainty precious face. This furry little escape artist has much interest in human activities, objects, and technology.

Maple Blue Lily Marlene Fred Mickey

MAPLE                     BLUE                      LILY MARLENE                          FRED                            MICKEY

Update January 9, 2021: Thanks to all who have inquired about and applied to adopt these little ones. We have had high interest in them and are now working through the applications and queries that we have, and we are confident that we will be able to select homes for them from the responses received to date. Again, thanks to everyone who has been kind enough to offer these babies a home.
A Litter of 5! SARG has a litter of five kittens that were born on Nov. 19, 2020. Two of them are male orange tabby, two are female grey/brown tabby, and one is a female calico tabby. All are super-friendly playful kitties that are very lucky to be alive. Having been born right at the start of winter they were found by a dear friend of SARG and taken in right away. These kitties have already had one appointment with our vet, and they are healthy, strong, and growing just as they should. They will be ready for their forever homes on January 15th. SARG will, of course, pay for all the necessary shots, microchipping and spay/neuter with our veterinarian.


My name is Carter and I'm a beautiful light orange tabby with pale green eyes. I have very soft, silky fur and love being petted. I'm about 2 years old and a big boy -- I weigh about 17 pounds. I'm a very confident, social and loving boy. You know I'm happy and in love when you hear me purr! Toys are great fun and I love those little squiggly plastic cat toys! My potty manners are excellent! I live in a foster home with six other cats and 3 German shepherds. I have adjusted very well to being an indoor cat. My foster mom has a sun porch that I can access from inside the house and I've gotten quite skilled at using the cat door. I love watching birds from the window and snoozing on the cat tree. I love to play and would be happier with another cat to play with. My foster mom keeps a bowl of fresh water in the bathtub, and I love to get fresh water there every morning. It is so much better than drinking out the same water bowl as the dogs.

Morris is a male orange-swirl tabby, and possibly a Manx mix, since his tail is only about 2 inches long. He is about 4 years old and was a stray in the Wear's Valley area who wanted to come inside. Morris does love to play with string, laser and toys; really loves catnip on his scratch box and toys. He was quite a wild child when he came to his foster home, but has calmed down and gets along pretty well with the other cats. He does fine with the dogs in the home -- two very large German shepherds. He does not like to be picked up, but does sleep on the bed and will cuddle. He likes to lie on a person, especially early in the morning. He loves being petted and does get in laps, but is a work-in-progress on becoming a true lap cat. He loves the cat tree on the sun porch and talks to the birds outside. He's a striking boy with his classic swirl tabby pattern in dark red-orange and his half-length tail.
