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.


Male | 2 years | Domestic Medium Hair • Mix


Name: Ash

Age: 2 years

Weight: 8.5 lbs

Personality: What's that, you've never seen a lynx in the wild? How about a lynx-looking looker in a domestic situation? Look no further than me, the Ash Cat of history! That's right, I'm historically well suited to the love of you and yours.
Long, lustrous fur for all the better for petting, bright glowing eyes showing off the clever cat who will delight daily and a calm, collected side for those dignified moments of cat pride. I am very shy in these surroundings so I ask for your patience in helping me to feel comfortable. If you talk softly to me, toss me a few treats and give me a few gentle chin and cheek scratches, I will gain the confidence to come out of my shell. Let's face facts, you don't want to wait to meet me any more than I want to wait to meet you. Oh yes, and about that domestic situation I mentioned earlier, I meant a forever home with humans like you - in fact, how about WITH you? Let's meet today!

Medical History: I appear to be a healthy kitty, but it is always a good idea to schedule an appointment with your vet so I can meet my new doctor.

Adoption Fee: $60 + tax
