Most DCHS and Wildlife Center services are by appointment only. If you found a lost animal, need to surrender a pet, found wildlife in need of help, or require another service, please call before coming to the shelter. Adoption visits are handled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Rikki Tikki Tavi 

Male | 9 years | Domestic Shorthair • Mix


Name: Rikki Tikki Tavi

Age: Senior (~10 years old)

Weight (approx.): 8.5 lbs

Personality: Meow! My name is Rikki Tikki Tavi and I'm goofy ball of fluff who is looking forward to finding my new home! I get really excited to hang out with my humans, maybe sometimes a little extra excited with too much petting, so it would be great to have a family who already knows about kitties. I can't wait to find a nice retirement home to spend my years in!

Medical History: I appear to be a healthy senior cat, and I received a special senior exam at the shelter, but it's always a good idea to set up an appointment with my new vet soon, so that we can make sure to stay on top of any medical issues that may come up.

Adoption Fee: $30 +tax
