Theodore is the biggest lover you could ever meet! Although he has been diagnosed with kitty kidney failure (say that 5 times fast), he is all snuggles and cuddles and just likes to be near his human. As a newly senior gentleman at just 9 years old, he has plenty of love to still give and life to live! The advantages of being in the senior club is that he doesn't mess around with tearing things up or running around anymore - just needs a comfy blanket and a lap to snuggle with. He absolutely loves tummy rubs and has a purr machine that never quits! To learn more about Theodore and his diagnosis, please contact his foster mom at or check out his Instagram @whs_theodore.

Hi there! I'm Rose! I am a 2 year old, short haired female. I came to WHS/WARL when my owner became overwhelmed with the number of cats living in her home. I shared a house with over FIFTY other cats previously, so I'm used to having feline friends. However, since my last owner had so many cats, it was difficult for her to spend time with all of us, so I'm still working on getting used to being petted and held. I'm shy in new situations and will need a patient owner that is willing to take some time earning my trust. Once I open up, I'm a very sweet cat, but new environments and noises easily startle me, so I would love to go to a quiet home where I can settle in slowly. Do you have a loving heart and room for another cat in your life? Come visit with me at Oglethorpe and see if I'd be a good match for you.

Who says black cats are bad luck?! Harrumph! Well I'm Mattie, and I'd like to think that I'm somewhat of a good luck charm. I was found with a leg injury a few weeks back and luckily enough I ended up here safely at WHS/WARL! Now I'm looking for a new home. I am pretty shy since I'm still new to the shelter, so please go slow with me. I'd like to be friends, but if you pet me too quickly, I tend to get startled. If you're willing to be a little patient with you, I think we could be buddies in no time. Sound good? Get down here and meet me! I'd love to go home soon!

Mourek here! I'm sorry to say that I've bounced around quite a bit in my life. I originally was adopted out from a shelter in Virginia, but was recently brought here to the Humane Rescue Alliance when my previous owner could no longer care for me. I was previously living with a large family that included children and 2 other cats, and I just don't think that was a good fit for me. I think I would prefer to go to a quieter home. Maybe a family that doesn't have young children or other cats? I'm a very friendly, sociable guy, but it's easy to get overwhelmed in a chaotic household, so I'd like some peace for once. If that sounds like your home, maybe I'd be a good fit for you! Stop by the shelter and see me! To learn more about Mourek, click HERE!

If you're a fan of large, long-haired cats, you MUST come in and meet me! I'm Moorey! Just one look at my picture and it's not hard to tell that I'm incredibly handsome. I was a much-beloved pet but my previous owner could no longer afford to take care of me and decided that it was best that I find another home. It's really sad, because I know they cared about me a lot, but I need to find a home that has the resources to care for me the way that I deserve. I'm really looking forward to going to my new home soon, so I'd love it if you would come in to meet me! Or if you have friends that are interested in adopting, share my story!To learn more about Moorey, click HERE!
