Cats Available for Adoption


R2D2 is about 5 years old and is 100% the perfect cat! He is a big boy, weighing in at about 14 pounds, and looooooves rolling around on the floor and begging for tummy rubs. He is extremely sweet and affectionate, and doesn’t seem to mind other animals one bit. He likes to hang out with his foster mom while she works from home and is working on his skills with Microsoft Office. He is up to typing 12 nonsense words per minute when she steps away from her computer! He is an all-around great cat and would do well just about anywhere!

Introducing Pluto, a beautiful, green-eyed, one-year-old, part-Siamese, and totally-black male cat. Pluto, named after the cat in the terrifying and gruesome Edgar Allan Poe short story, "The Black Cat" is anything but terrifying. He is cute and adventurous, uses the litter box, does beautifully with children, is not scared of dogs and gets along with other cats. He can morph from being sweet and cuddly to playful and mischievous in a nanosecond. Pluto loves attention, and who needs cat toys? He will play for hours just pushing a pencil around the floor. During this COVID pandemic, here is a furry friend who will provide hours of entertainment and love while you are stuck at home. Please help find this very special young cat a furever family..

Lucy is a sweet, cuddly, 4-month-old (as of September 15) girl with great big eyes. She is tabby with calico markings and little white feet. Lucy loves to give you kisses all the time, and as soon as you pick her up, she is purring. She cuddles her foster mom's teenage daughter all night, sleeping right up on her pillows. Lucy has never met a stranger and enjoys being held by everyone. The foster home she is in has several other cats/kittens, and she gets along with all of them.

Desi is a fun-loving, playful cuddle bug. He is a 4-month-old (as of September 15) grey tabby that is purring all of the time! Literally he purrs when you look at him. He enjoys being held and cuddled as well as chasing any toy that moves. It’s the perfect mix of play and lap kitty time. His foster mom often sees Desi carry a ball in his mouth and then drop it to toss it around some more. Desi is in the same foster home as Lucy and they are about the same age. They are good playmates, and Desi also loves all the other kitties in the house.

Kon-Tiki is about 4½ months old (as of September 13). He is a black and gray tabby with medium-length fur. He is a bobtail with a crook at the end of his tail. He is beginning to resemble several Maine coon mixes that his foster mom has fostered in the past. When he’s not busy exploring and playing with his toys (which is most of the time), he will sit in your lap and reward you with loud purring.

Luna is a pretty, black kitty with striking white whiskers and eyebrows. She is about 5 years old as of May, 2020. 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.

Apollo was named after a Greek god known for his beauty. This striking black-and-white tuxedo kitty -- about seven years old -- is looking for his new forever home. Apollo has recently lived with another cat, so we know he’s cat-friendly. He’s also very people-friendly -- his previous owner says he's "all about his people." He is only available for adoption due to serious health issues of his previous people. Our vets say he is friendly and sweet. He’s ready for the next chapter in his life.

About two years old, Maggie (with her 3 kittens) was rescued from the Oak Ridge Animal Shelter. Now that the kittens are in their furever homes, Maggie is looking for her final home. Maggie is a very sweet cat who loves to be wherever you are. She follows her people, and will sit in a lap and purr contentedly. Since Maggie does not appreciate other cats, she would be happiest in a home where she is the only cat. She is a polydactyl on both front feet, meaning she has extra toes. Polydactyls (also known as "Hemingway cats," since he rescued many over the years) were prized by sailors for their extraordinary climbing and hunting abilities. They were believed to bring good luck. So if you want a beautiful, loving kitty to bring you good luck, put in an application for Maggie.

Happy Tails -- Cats Adopted or Pending


My name is Annika, like Seven of Nine on Star Trek Voyager! I too wear a sleek silver jumpsuit and am a strong independent lady. I am an almost two-year-old female Russian blue mix, and I am looking for a place to call home! My voyage has been long, and on the way we have discovered that small children are not my favorite, so I need to find a home without them. I get along fine with teenagers and adults, as well as other cats and dogs! I am a loving and affectionate cat on my own terms and love to talk and play. I won’t sit on your lap, but I love to be near my people and will follow you around the house to see what fun new adventures await us next! Won’t you help me find my way to a forever home?

Cricket, named after the lucky cricket from Mulan, is an eight-week-old, male, grey-and-white, Manx-mixed, bob-tailed kitten. He is full of boundless curiosity and loves to run around the house with a fuzzy ball in his mouth. He gets along with older cats and enjoys cuddling and being groomed by them. He also loves to cuddle and has one of the loudest purrs. He likes to sit on shoulders like a little parrot while being petted.

Mr. Smith
Mr Smith, two years old, came to us from a local veterinarian who removed one hind leg that was badly damaged, probably by being hit by a car. Mr. Smith is in a foster home, learning again how to navigate and doing very well. He gets along well with the dog in the home, seems fine with other cats when he sees them, and LOVES people. Mr. Smith wants to follow his people and sit or sleep with them. Although he’s FIV positive, that’s not a problem -- the latest research indicates that FIV+ and FIV- cats can co-exist with no problems. If you’re looking for a lover of a cat, this handsome orange tabby boy could be a great fit.

Penelope is a 9-month-old Maine coon mix. She was turned in to the shelter because her owners were moving and couldn’t take her with them. She is super-friendly and loves being wherever you are. She gets along ok with other cats. We don’t know how she does with dogs since there are not dogs at her foster home.

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.

George Bailey
George Bailey is a gorgeous Maine coon mix boy of about 4½-5 years old. He's in a foster home with another cat, so we know he gets along with other cats. George was a stray found in a barn who was taken in by a family who ultimately decided they couldn't keep him. He had been chipped at one point, but attempts to contact the original owner went nowhere. SARG has re-chipped him so that his chip information is up to date. Now he's looking for a true "forever" home. George appears to like people and will sit on laps. As we have him longer, we'll discover more about this stunning boy.

Melody is a black-and-tan polydactyl tabby with white paws. A typical kitten, she’s right there playing with a toy or wrestling with her sisters. She will be ready for her new home in a couple of weeks, around March 13, 2020.

Matilda is a black-and-tan mackerel polydactyl tabby. If there is a toy to be found, she’s right there playing with it. She will be ready for her new home in a couple of weeks, around March 13, 2020.

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.

Baby Yoda
Baby Yoda is a tiny Maine-coon-mix kitten, 5 weeks old as of December 5, 2019. He has a super-sweet disposition and loves all the other kitties in his foster home. He was found abandoned under a porch, riddled with fleas and ear mites. As he was too tiny to be left alone, SARG is now fostering him in a home with other kittens his age. He looks a bit like Baby Yoda from the new Star Wars series The Mandalorian. Baby Yoda is just as his name suggests: curious, docile and loves everyone in an understated way. He is sure to grow to be a nice fluffy kitty.
