Allie
Female Domestic Short Hair
Currently living in foster care

Hello. I am Allie, a quiet and easygoing, 10 year old black cat. I was originally adopted from Animal Ark a few years ago, but my owner had a change in his living situation and could no longer care for me. Once I warm up to you, I do well with people but prefer not to live with children or other animals. I am diabetic but because of a special diet I am on, it is in full remission. I will need to stay on this diet so I don't relapse. I am looking for a loving and caring home where I can spend my "retirement" years. I would be a good candidate for the foster or foster to adopt program. I am currently in a foster home. I can be seen by appointment with an approved adoption application.

Arlo
Male Maine Coon
Currently living at the Hastings shelter

How do you do? I am Arlo, an 11 year old handsome Maine Coon mix. I came to Animal Ark with my best friend and roommate, Henry.

So you know what that means! We prefer a mature home where we are the only animals. Belly rubs and chin scratches are my favorites. If you have room in your heart and home for two quiet felines, ask the Shelter staff about a special discount to keep us together.

Chaplin
Female Domestic Short Hair
Currently living at the St. Paul Adoption Center

They nicknamed me Charlie Chaplin for my moustached face...Chaplin for short. I am a black and white stray kitty who is very afraid and learning to trust humans daily. I am quite fond of the food they serve here. I have decided to curl up in the blankets they have provided me, making my space quite cozy. I am still unsure of all of this. I am looking for someone with alot of cat experience who can help bring me out of my shell. I am not aggressive, just fearful. Update: Well, I was so unfriendly the humans here did not even know I was pregnant! Not their fault, really!! So my little girl, Casey, is all grown up now and found a great home. I am still a bit shy. I would love to find the perfect countryside barn or farm to call my own. I am a great hunter of mice and if you are in need of someone to patrol your property, I am just the black and white that you need. Did you know that Animal Ark is providing Barn Cats for free?

Female Domestic Short Hair

Can you give me a loving, permanent home? I am Edie, an easygoing, happy, 5 year old gray tabby. I originally came to Animal Ark because my owner had too many cats. I was adopted and returned, after 3 years, because my owners were moving out of state and could not take me with them. I did not reside with other animals, and appear to be cautious around children. A mature home, or a home with older kids who respect my space, would probably be my best match. I am not real big on being picked up but I enjoy playing with a ball of yarn, and belly rubs and head scratches are the best!

Elsa
Female American Staffordshire Terrier
Currently living in foster care

Good Day! I'm Elsa. My Mom, Marshmallow, was picked up in St. Paul as a stray. After arriving at St. Paul Animal Control, everyone could tell she was carrying a few extra pounds. Well, guess what? That was me and my brothers and sisters, also known as "Mini-Marshmallows"! We were born here at Animal Ark shelter on June 26, 2014, much to the surprise of all the staff and volunteers. I guess they knew Mom was having babies, they just didn't think it'd be so soon. We have grown a lot since then, and are very healthy and happy little kiddos. Not to mention, we are the cutest bunch of little pibbles you have ever seen in your entire life! We love to spend all our time snuggling, playing and romping around. Just take me home and you'll see... I am pretty fly! I am in a foster home. I can be seen with an approved application. Please fill one out via the link below.

Hi guys! My name is Ginger. I am a sweet, 2 year old brown tabby. I was brought to Animal Ark by my owner who took great care of me while I was pregnant and as I gave birth. He had to move and could not take me or my little ones with him, which made him really sad. I gave birth to a whopping 7 kittens! Gannon, Gibbs, Georgie, Gemmi, Gianni, Ginny and Gumby. I was an awesome Mom and now that my kittens are weaned, I can find a forever home of my own. I am very people oriented and really like to be held and petted. I do not like other cats and would prefer to live in a home without other cats. I worked very hard to raise my kittens and now it is time for me to be pampered!

Gizmo
Male Domestic Long Hair
Currently living at the St. Paul Adoption Center

Your man Gizmo here! I am a handsome, white and ginger, long haired 11 year old male. And I am declawed on my front paws. I enjoy being held and even carried around and will give you kisses, if you let me. I like drinking from the faucet, chasing the laser and anything on a string, and catnip, too. I will let you brush me, if you pet my head at the same time! I must go to a mature home, without children. I am easily stressed by other animals and children of any age so a quiet, adult home as the only pet would be my perfect match.

Gotti
Male American Shelter Dog
Currently living at the Hastings shelter

Greetings! My name is Gotti and I'm a 2 year old, black (with a little bit of white on my chest) male American Shelter Dog. I'm an easy going fellow...a real mellow dude, I'll have ya know! I just love the attention I'm getting from the nice people here at the shelter. And the dogs are pretty cool, too. Day by day, I'm making more and more friends! So yeah, I like the dogs, forget about it! But my most favorite thing to do is to hang in the social rooms at the shelter and give kisses to my people. You should stop by soon and get some!

Gracie
Female Domestic Long Hair
Currently living at the St. Paul Adoption Center

I am looking for a great home where I can be the only pet, and I'll explain why in just a minute. First, let me tell you about myself. My name is Gracie and I am a beautiful, long haired black with silver female cat. I am about 4-1/2 years old and on the shy and quiet side. I was living in a home with a dog who didn't like me, and made my life difficult. Then I was taken in by some nice folks who had another cat, but that feline actually attacked me. I would like to find a home where I am not taken advantage of because of my mellow disposition. I lived with children ages 6 to 14 and did just fine with them. But, as you can imagine, I am now afraid of other animals. I like chasing string and feather cat toys. If you are looking for one feline companion to shower with love and attention, please consider adding me to your home. I can be seen at the St. Paul Adoption Center.

I am a gorgeous, 2 year old dilute calico who came in with my kitten, Gabe. I had a healthy litter and a kind lady found homes for the other 3 kittens. Now it is time for me to find my forever family. She really loved and cared for me, but I just did not like her dog. I may have been overly protective of my brood, too. I like to meow and I love attention. Please come visit and fall in love with me. I can be seen at the St. Paul Adoption Center.

Hi. I'm Happy! I am a male, black, 1 year old cat. I was abandoned in a home, after my owner died. Some nice folks found me and took me in but were unable to keep me, due to family illness. So now I am at Animal Ark awaiting my new owner. I am friendly and love people and other cats. I have never been around dogs or children. A mature home might be the ideal situation for me.

Hi! Let me inroduce myself. My name is Harley and I am a big bundle of Chococlate Labrador Retrierver. Since I came from the pound, it is not known for sure how old I am, but the folks at Animal Ark think I am about 5 years old. I am a very sweet and friendly guy and love to be around people. I want to be friends with other dogs but am kind of shy, so if you have any dogs, we would need to do an introduction before you could take me home. I hate to admit it, but I am afraid of cats. I am housebroken and am very easy going, so what's not to like? I am in training and not accepting visitors at this time. Keep checking the website for updated information.

Henry 2
Male Maine Coon
Currently living at the Hastings shelter

How do you do? I am Henry, a 9 year old handsome Maine Coon mix. I came to Animal Ark with my best friend and roommate, Arlo. We were originally in a home and doing great until babies and toddlers came along. Then we were adopted again, and this time we could not get along with the dog in the home. So you know what that means! We prefer a mature home where we are the only animals. Belly rubs and chin scratches are my favorites. If you have room in your heart and home for two quiet felines, ask the Shelter staff about a special discount to keep us together.

Illianna
Female Domestic Short Hair
Currently living at the St. Paul Adoption Center

I am a gorgeous, diluted calico. My first owner brought me to Animal Ark because they could not care for me properly. I am soooo beautiful that I was quickly adopted! I loved my new home and my new guardian. She fed me treats, grew my own patch of catnip, bought me special toy mice and let me curl up with her to sleep. We liked to talk to each other in the mornings while she prepared my breakfast...I would gently pat her face to remind her that I was hungry. Sadly, my owner became ill and had to go away. So here I am again, in search of a forever home. I really want to make my new home my last. Come visit me and see how lovely I am.

Hi! I am a sweet, easygoing, 6 year old, orange declawed female cat. I am very petite, weighing a little over 6 pounds. I was surrendered to Animal Ark because my owner was allergic to me. I am tolerant, but not playful, with other cats and dogs. I am cautious and reserved around children and probably should not go to a home with young children. I am very friendly and playful with adults, though. Please come and see me soon. I'm ready to go to a new home. Yippee!! I am in a foster to adopt home!!

Jay
Male Domestic Short Hair
Currently living at the Hastings shelter

I am the sweetest, little gray tabby with white markings, about 10 weeks old. I was found stray, all by myself. A kind person knew I needed lots of help and Animal Ark found a spot for me. I was lucky enough to be bottle fed and raised in a loving foster home. I'm now at the shelter, waiting to find my "forever" home. I am very active and playful. I like to leap and run across tops of furniture. Because I tend to play a little rough, I would do best in a home without small children. I did great with the 9 year old who came to visit in my foster home. Woohoo! I am on hold for adoption!

Jean
Female Domestic Short Hair
Currently living at the Hastings shelter

I'm not exactly sure what happened to me, but somehow I am now residing at Animal Ark! I am Jean, a friendly and easygoing, 2 year old black cat. The folks here tell me I was picked up stray in St. Paul. Then I was transferred here to the Shelter as soon as space opened up. This seems to be a pretty nice place to be, with good food and people who give me attention and petting. But I would prefer going to a nice home where people will keep me safe so I never end up on the street again.

Jenny
Female Domestic Short Hair
Currently living in foster care

Homeless and heartbroken, but not giving up hope. That pretty much describes the situation I find myself in. I am Jenny, a shy and docile, 8-1/2 year old white lady with gray markings. I came to Animal Ark with with my sister, Jill, because our owner could no longer care for us. She had to go into a nursing home, and she is the only person we have ever lived with. Originally we were found stray and brought to the Shelter. Then this wonderful lady made us part of her life for over 8 years. Now we are looking for a kind and loving home that will allow us time to adjust to a new living situation. We have never lived with other animals or children and would definitely need a mature, quiet environment. Because we have been together all of our lives, we do need to be adopted together. If you have room in your home and heart for two gentle girls, ask the Shelter staff about a special price to keep us together. Yippee! I am in a foster to adopt home with my sister, Jill. Wish us luck!!

Jessie
Female Domestic Long Hair
Currently living at the St. Paul Adoption Center

Hi! I'm Jessie! I am a female, 5 year old cat with lots of long, white fluffy fur and beautiful blue eyes. I won't come when you call me, as I can't hear you. I was born deaf. I need to find a new home where I can be the only cat, as I don't care for other cats. If you've never had the experience of having a deaf cat in your home, there are a few things I need to explain. I am cautious when moving through doorways because I cannot hear what is going on in the room into which I am entering. My meow volume is always on high, as I am unable to hear how loud I am meowing. I become anxious at night if I don't know where my owner is...so you need to let me know which room you are in. I don't like to be carried. I am scared of fast movements, so I really would enjoy a slow paced home, without children. I seem to get along with well-mannered, slower moving dogs. I would be most comfortable in a stable home where there won't be an abundance of changes. I LOVE a nice cat tower where I can be up high and feel safe from all the goings on beneath me. If you have the patience to get to know me and also for me to be able to adjust to your home and your routines, please come and meet me. I am a friendly gal and even ride well in the car. You should probably plan to have a good brush on hand to keep my long, fluffy fur tangle free. If you wish to hear more, please come and meet me so I can tell you in person! I can be seen at the St. Paul Adoption Center.

Jupiter, a mighty God indeed! I am definitely a black cat that has a presence. I love to talk to you and beg for ear scratches. I was found in a kennel in a dog park, and that made me a bit anxious when I first got here. I think I need someone who is an experienced cat guardian--I can sometimes still show my displeasure by nips. All that being said, I think I miss being a house cat. Come see me and fall in love with my majestic beauty.

I was originally adopted from Animal Ark as a kitten and lived with the same people for 4 years. I was no longer a good fit for that family, so now I'm hoping to find a new, forever home. I am not real fond of children, so a mature home would be a good fit for me. I use my scratching post faithfully and like to play with balls with bells and toy mice.

Howdy folks! My name is Kasson and I am so excited for the opportunity to tell you about myself. I am a black, 3 year old, American Staffordshire Terrier. Like many other dogs, I was found homeless on the streets of St. Paul. The folks at Animal Control took me in and made sure I had everything I needed. However, I was still missing a certain something in my life. Which is why I am here now, to find a new family who will love me forever and ever! Are you my special someone? I hope so! You should know, I can't go to a home with cats...not a big fan. But I really enjoy the company of people and dogs alike. Come see me soon and see what I'm all about!

I am Katalina, a sweet, 3 year old brown tabby. I came from a situation where there were too many cats in the home to care for properly. I was a Mom cat and took very good care of my kittens, which are now weaned. I can be a little shy when we first meet, but after I am comfortable with you, I am extremely playful. I like to chase toys and milk caps. But my favorite thing is to watch the birds outside the window. I even start chattering to tell you how much fun I'm having! I am currently in foster care. Arrangements can be made to meet me with an approved adoption application.

Katie here! I'm a shy, but friendly, black cat with white paws and markings. I'm 6 years old and declawed on my front paws. I can take some time to warm up to strangers. I do well with other cats.

What I am really hoping for is a mature home, without other animals or children. The person who adopted me said I am a wonderful cat and very social. I can be a vocal girl, so come for a visit and I'll tell you more of my story!

Kiki

Been here and done this before!!!! I was Angie, the 9 week old kitten, when I was first adopted from Animal Ark. I am now Kiki, a 4-1/2 year old Tortie in search of a new home, as my previous owner was no longer able to care for me. I'm not very happy about being back at the shelter, although the staff here are very nice and trying to make me feel at ease. I really just want a new home of my own where I can sleep in bed with my owner again! Is that too much to ask? I am a playful and friendly gal, once I get adjusted to my new surroundings. I did not live with other felines in my previous home. I do not prefer the company of dogs, but I was tolerant of them in my previous home. I did not live with children, either. However, I was subjected to visits by the grandkids --which usually lead me to find a safe, quiet spot to "hide out" while they were around. I use my scratching post and my litter box. If I could find that one and only owner who just wanted to shower me, and only me, with all the love they had --that would be my WISH! Are you the one? If you think we could be a match, please come and meet me.

Hi! My name is Kip and I am a very lively, 5 year old Maltese/Yorkshire Terrier mix. I am rather shy when first meeting new people but will warm up pretty quickly, once I know you a little better. I love to ride in the car. I have several small doggy friends here at the shelter, who I really like to go on walks with. Children make me nervous, and so does alot of activity in the house. I would do best in a home with one owner and a very low key environment. I know how to sit, dance, lay down, shake and roll over. If you would like a lap dog to hang out with, then please come and meet me! Oh my! I am in a foster to adopt home!

Lola
Female Chihuahua
Currently living in foster care

Hey there! My name is Lola and I'm a 7 year old, female Chihuahua. I came to Animal Ark because my owner had a medical condition and could no longer care for me. The people here have been really nice and loving. I like sleeping under blankets and snuggling in your lap, especially during those cold, winter days. I am friendly with other dogs but I have never been around cats or small kids. It would be best if I went to a home with kids who were older. I will need a little bit of extra training to know not to go potty inside the house, because I used to go on some pads inside my previous home. But please don't let that stop you from picking a small gal like me! I can be seen and put on hold with an approved adoption application, but I cannot go home until after I am spayed. Yippee!! I am in a foster to adopt home! Wish me luck!

Louie
Male Bichon Frise
Currently living at the Hastings shelter

I am a very nice, 12 year old little guy who is seeking a very special home. I am diabetic, so I get insulin twice each day. However, I don't mind and it really isn't a big deal. I like to play with other dogs and have lived with children. I do okay with teenagers, but I really don't care for children. I was adopted from Animal Ark but returned for being too protective of my people and my food. I need more time, stability and attention than my previous family could give me. They loved me very much but because of ill family members and strained resources, they were unable to keep me. I was adopted out for awhile but was returned as my new owners could no longer care for me. I would really do best in a quiet home without alot of activity. I love to go for walks. Won't you please find room in your home and heart for me, so I can live out the rest of my life in a home, rather then a shelter?

Lovey
Female Domestic Short Hair
Currently living at the Hastings shelter

I'm not sure how I ended up at Animal Ark, but am I ever glad I did! I am Lovey, a sweet and friendly, 10 year old tortie female. A nice person found me roaming around and brought me to the Shelter to see if I had a microchip. Good news...I did! Bad news...my owner could not be located, as the number was disconnected. So now here I am, looking for another nice person who will take me home and give me the love and attention I deserve. A cozy cat bed, good food and a few toys would complete my happy picture.

If you like your felines sweet and affectionate, here I am! Luna is my name and I am an elegant and quiet, 7 year old, long haired black female.

I always use my scratching post and my favorite toy is a small ball of yarn.

Hello everyone. My name is Macy. I am a beautiful 7 year old calico who is declawed. I am a very sweet girl who has recently come upon some unfortunate circumstances. My owners became unable to give me the care I require, after I was diagnosed with diabetes. I need insulin twice a day and I take it very well. It's easy to give my insulin... I just need someone who is willing to learn. I could be a good foster-to-adopt candidate. If you would like to come in for a visit, I would love the company!

Midgee
Female Domestic Short Hair
Currently living at the Hastings shelter

I’m Midgee, a 4 month old brown tabby female. I have found out at a very young age that life can be very scary when living life as a stray kitten. I am thankful to be at Animal Ark where I am safe, warm and served good food on a regular basis. I arrived at the shelter with my Mom, Rascal, my sister, Mitty, and my brother, Sneakers. My Mom did a good job of keeping us together until we were able to be rescued. Now I am ready to find a permanent home of my own. I am trying to learn how to trust people. The staff at Animal Ark is being patient with me. Due to my shyness and fear of quick movements and odd noises, I am hoping to find a quiet home, without young children. My personality may change over time as I develop more confidence. I don’t know how I would adjust to dogs either, as sometimes they can be noisy (when they bark) and move fast, as well. If you have the patience and love that I need, please come and meet me. And if you have enough love in your heart and room in your home to adopt me and one of my siblings, please ask the shelter staff about a special price to adopt us together. Hope to see you soon.

Attention all potential adopters. I am looking for a certified snuggler! Let me tell you about myself. I am a 6 year old gentleman named Milo. I am what some people call a "Puggle"! That means I am a mix of a Pug and a Beagle. Though the people at the shelter also think I might be part Dachshund, because of my short legs. I am quiet and reserved, but I will curl up right next to you and indulge in some pets. Could you provide me with some? If you think we could be cuddle companions for life, stop on by the shelter and say 'Hello'! I am in a foster to adopt home. Wish me luck!

Olaf
Male American Staffordshire Terrier

Good Day! I'm Olaf. My Mom, Marshmallow, was picked up in St. Paul as a stray. After arriving at St. Paul Animal Control, everyone could tell she was carrying a few extra pounds. Well, guess what? That was me and my brothers and sisters, also known as "Mini-Marshmallows"! We were born here at Animal Ark shelter on June 26, 2014, much to the surprise of all the staff and volunteers. I guess they knew Mom was having babies, they just didn't think it'd be so soon. We have grown a lot since then, and are very healthy and happy little kiddos. Not to mention, we are the cutest bunch of little pibbles you have ever seen in your entire life! We love to spend all our time snuggling, playing and romping around. Just take me home and you'll see... I am pretty fly! I am in a foster home. I can be seen with an approved application. Please fill one out via the link below.

I am selective about my feline friends so if you already have cats, you'd need to be patient while I adjust to any resident cats. I do not have experience with children, so I would hope that children would be respectful of me and let me warm up to them.

I still have a little get-up to my walk, but that's what makes me unique! I am a very loveable black and white kitten and like to play with all my friends, which include both dogs and cats.

I am back to "normal", just like a cat should be, and show no signs of having problems. The Vet does not expect me to have any problems in the future, either. The Shelter staff has found that, even with all that I have been through, I am a sweet and easygoing, friendly guy. I am living with other cats, but it's not known how I would do with canines or children. All I know is that I am ready to find stablilty in a home of my own.

Hi! I'm Siren, a very pretty and quiet, 8 year old tortie colored cat. I lived with cats and did well with them. Unfortunately, I have had a bad run of luck, as I have been adopted and returned twice to Animal Ark. I am friendly with those who know me well, but am easily over-looked because I am more independent than some of the other cats. I like attention and will seek you out when I am ready to be petted. I am also declawed on my front paws. I would be a good candidate for a foster or foster to adopt home.

I lived with children in my former home but have little experience with other animals. Stop in for a visit and see where it goes!

Spice
Female Domestic Short Hair
Currently living at the St. Paul Adoption Center

Hi! I am Spice and me and my pal, Frisky, came to Animal Ark because our owner passed away. We are very scared kitties and need an owner who is willing to let us come out of our shell. I am black and white and about 3-1/2 years old. We like tuna and chicken and tolerate some petting, but not much. It is not our fault, we are just scared. Ask the staff about a special discount to keep us together..We are currently living in a foster home, looking for permanent placement. Still a bit shy and getting more brave each day. We can be seen by appointment, so give the shelter a call!

Starr
Female Domestic Short Hair
Currently living at the Hastings shelter

Being a Mom is really a hard job, and I'm here to tell you! I am Starr, a sweet and quiet, 4 year old black and white cat who had a litter of 5 kittens. Siri, Sparkle, Sprinkles, Springfield and Stetson were quite a bunch to care for! I was found stray, with my family, by a nice person who cared for us until we could come to Animal Ark. We all received lots of TLC and socializing. My kittens are weaned and don't need me anymore, so I'm ready to begin the next chapter of my life in a new home.

Sterling
Male Domestic Short Hair
Currently living at the St. Paul Adoption Center

Thank goodness for the kindness of cat lovers! I'm Sterling, a sweet, 2-1/2 year old grey and white male cat. I have faced many a challenge while living life as a stray cat. The wonderful person who brought me into their home provided immediate medical care for me. She was not able to keep me but she kept me safe until there was room for me at Animal Ark. It is such a dream to be able to be fed on a regular basis and not have to worry about where my next meal will come from, or what peril I would face obtaining that meal. I am learning how to trust more people. I can be shy, however, I am a friendly boy. I am startled easily and will hide when there are loud noises. I would probably flourish in a quiet home, without young children. I do like a good head massage. Update: I have adjusted quite well to living with other cats in the St. Paul Adoption Center. I am confident, love to be scratched and have become playful. Come for a visit!!

Sylvia

Bow Wow! I'm Sylvia, a sweet gal with soulful eyes. I am VERY affectionate and a favorite of my human friends here at the shelter. I am a 1-1/2 year old black American Staffordshire Terrier mix, who picked up as a stray in St. Paul. I enjoy long walks and playtime with my friend Kasson, who looks almost identical to me. I also bond very strongly with people. One of my favorite things to do is give kisses to my humans when they walk by my kennel. Please come to the shelter to check me out, as you don't want to miss out on adding a great girl like me to your family.

Theodore
Male Poodle (unknown type)
Currently living in foster care

A humble 'hello' to you! My name is Theodore. The people here at Animal Ark think I am a poodle mix and they estimate that I am about 10 years old. Don't be leary of my age. I would make an excellent dog for someone looking for a quiet and mellow companion. Everyone thinks I'm wonderful because I don't mess with all that "puppy-hood" stuff. I am very well behaved! I have even mastered walking on a leash right by your side. In fact, just talking about a walk is really making me crave some outside time. What'dya say? Stop on by and let's get to know each other while we enjoy a nice, long walk together. Yippee!! I am in a foster to adopt home. Wish me luck!!

Tigger
Male American Shelter Dog
Currently living in foster care

Howdy Doody! I'm Tigger, a 2 year old, black American Shelter Dog. I was living comfortably in my home when the City told my Dad that he couldn't keep me because, apparently, I look like a "pit bull"... whatever that means!?!? Anyway, I am a sweet and loveable guy who knows A LOT of commands such as sit, stay, up, down and shake. I also really enjoy playing with the other dogs here at the shelter. As far as how I am with people, I love 'em and am quite the lap dog! Because Animal Ark is working legal channels to try to get me returned home, I am living in a FOSTER home so I don't have to live at the shelter during the months of legal wrangling.

Tippy
Female Domestic Short Hair
Currently living in foster care

Hello. I am Tippy, a sweet and friendly, 10 year old brown tabby with white markings. I was adopted and returned because I was no longer a good fit with my family. I am somewhat of an acrobat, as I can jump from the floor to your shoulder, without notice, I might add!! I do well with strangers and children, but have no experience with other felines or canines. I am a vocal girl and am declawed on my front paws. I would do best in a home where someone is home most of the time, to give me the attention I crave. Some nice people came in and loved me. They decided to foster to adopt me! Yay!

Tori
Female Domestic Short Hair
Currently living at the St. Paul Adoption Center

When I first came to Animal Ark, I was scared and I did not like people much. I soon realized that the people here are really nice. I have a great bed, awesome canned food and evvvvery once and awhile they throw down some catnip. I like catnip! I love to roll and show you my belly. I talk like torties are apt to do and I am declawed, too. I really need a home with an experienced cat guardian. Think you got what it takes??? Come see me!

Tripsy
Female Domestic Short Hair
Currently living at the Hastings shelter

It's not easy being a shy and bashful feline. I am Tripsy, a 5 year old white female with black markings. Some people may think I'm aloof, but that's not true. It just takes me a while to get comfortable with new people. I was originally adopted from Animal Ark when I was just a little tyke. I lived with the same people for 5 years but they can no longer care for me. Just give me a chance and I will show you what a happy girl I am. And if you have a brush in hand, I will be your friend forever. Having my cheeks brushed is my most favorite thing!

Tristan
Male Domestic Short Hair
Currently living at the Hastings shelter

I am Tristan, a very sweet, 10 month old black cat who was found under a porch, suffering from severe injuries. My right hind leg was nearly severed, with wounds though the skin and muscle - down to the bone all around the leg. My left hind leg was also injured, with maggots in the wounds on both legs. Veterinarians believed my left leg would heal fine, but that my right leg needed to be amputated. I came to the Shelter on July 12th. And due to the severity of my injuries, emergency surgery was done. We cannot show you the actual wounds, because they are too graphic. Can you please help me? Every donation eases the burdon. Thanks in advance for caring! Update: I am healing just fine from my two surgeries and am getting used to moving with only three legs. Cats get along just fine with three legs, once they adapt. I sure would enjoy having some company, so stop by for a visit!

Truman
Male Domestic Long Hair
Currently living in foster care

I am one majestic cat! I think that is why the folks at Animal Ark named me Truman. I am 6 years old and quite stunning...white and beige with a grey and white face. Check out my fantastic blue eyes! Not much is known about me. Ya see, my owner left me and my pal, Ruby, in a carrier outside of a business. Despite my confusion, I am super loving and ready to go to a new home soon. Will you be my forever home and promise not to leave me again? And check out my friend, Ruby...she is super sweet, too! Ask about an adoption special when you take both of us home. Please come and see us at the St. Paul Adoption Center. I went to a great foster home with my pal, Ruby. They are going to adopt both of us!

Turner
Male Domestic Short Hair
Currently living at the St. Paul Adoption Center

My name is Turner. I am one gentle and loving, 8 year old orange tabby. I got lost and ended up at St. Paul Animal Control. They knew just who to call and Animal Ark came and got me. I love to be talked to and I like head and chin scratches. Truly, I am just looking for a home and lap to call my own. I was rescued from the Chisago City Animal Shelter and my owners did not register my chip. So I am lost and can't find my way home.

Twinkle

Hello! I am Twinkle, a pretty and perky, young Mom cat. I am buff in color and only about 8 months old. I came to Animal Ark from St. Paul Animal Control, along with my kids, Daisy and Bam Bam. I was a very good Mom but now the little ones are on their own. It's time for me to find a loving home where I can settle in and get all the attention I deserve.

Tye
Female Domestic Short Hair
Currently living at the Hastings shelter

Hey! I am Tye, a sweet, somewhat quiet, 1-1/2 year old tortie female cat. I came to Animal Ark after I was rescued from a hoarding situation. I can be shy when I first meet you, however, once you get to know me, I enjoy being held and cuddled. If you have a loving home and are willing to provide the time I need to adjust to new situations and new people, please come and meet me. Due to my shy nature, I might not be the best fit for a busy home that has young children. Please bring your whole family to the shelter if you want to meet me. Did I mention that I am a beautiful gal? Bye for now!

Tyrone
Male American Shelter Dog
Currently living in foster care

I'm Tyrone, a 4 year old American Shelter Dog. I know how to sit, lay down, stay and am very attentive. I'm still trying to figure out how to play fetch though. I am house-trained and am a actually pretty quiet dog in the house, I don't hardly bark at all. I'm searching for a family I can hang with and who will appreciate me for the gregarious big guy that I am! I am in a foster home. If you are interested in meeting me, fill out an application and we can arrange a time!

Victor
Male Domestic Short Hair
Currently living at the Hastings shelter

According to my previous owner, cuddling is my favorite thing in the whole world! I am Victor, an easygoing, kind of shy, 4 year old black male cat. I was adopted from Animal Ark when my name was Vader, but my owner was no longer able to care for me. So I'm back at the Shelter, hoping to find a home that likes to give lots of belly rubs! I am cautious around other animals and children, so a quiet, mature home would suit me best. I am frightened by sudden movements, so I would need a patient home that will give me time to adjust to my new surroundings. I am on medical hold and not accepting visitors. Keep checking the website for updates.

Vincent

Hello. Vincent here! I am a handsome and friendly, 3 year old gray and white male. I originally came to Animal Ark from Minneapolis Animal Control. I have been adopted and returned twice because of allergies. Hard to believe, but sometimes that's the way it goes! My previous owner said I am a terrific, friendly guy who loves to talk. I am a big boy with a personality to match! Stop in for a visit and we'll have a chat!

Violet
Female Domestic Short Hair
Currently living at the Hastings shelter

Hello everyone! My name is Violet and I am a 2-1/2 year old, brown tabby female with white markings. I am quite sweet and enjoy sitting on people's laps. I would like nothing more than being petted all the time! I am active and playful and cat toys are the best. I lived with other cats but they scare me, so I would do best as the only pet in my new home. I like to play with balls and toys on strings. Come visit and listen to me purr!!

Violet 2
Female Domestic Short Hair
Currently living at the Hastings shelter

I am a shrinking Violet! I am the most timid in my litter and still a bit scared by loud noises and people. I probably would do best in a quieter home and I really would love to be adopted with one of my mates. I am 12 weeks old and have the most beautiful brown tabby colors with calico markings. I do purr when I am petted, so just give me a chance.

Vivian
Female Domestic Short Hair
Currently living at the St. Paul Adoption Center

I am a sweet little girl, somewhat on the scared and shy side. I was picked up as stray and brought to Animal Ark so that I might learn to trust people. I like to be stroked and loved on, though I still hide under my bed at times. I have the sweetest meow and lovely golden eyes that are set off by my soft, dark black fur. I think I would do best in a barn or outdoor setting. I am fast and I know I am a great mouser and would have a great time running around your farm. Ask about our Barn Cat Program. I could be yours!

Wilma
Female Domestic Medium Hair
Currently living at the Hastings shelter

I am Wilma, a sweet and playful calico, about 6 months old. I am polydactyl, which means I have extra toes on my front paws. I was out on the streets with my sister, Betty, trying to make it on our own. The folks at St. Paul Animal Control picked us up and now I am at Animal Ark, ready for a new adventure! Got some fun toys, good food and lots of love to share? I am waiting to receive! Betty found her new home and now I'm waiting to find mine.
