Leah success story page

Leah’s journey at CHS has been a long one, but she’s hoping her new home is on the horizon. Is she the kitty for you or someone you know?

Dixie didn’t know where she belonged. It took a tornado, a lengthy journey to CT, and a lot of courage to figure it out.

Maya went from being a confused old gal with no family, to being the sister of a fellow senior pup. 

Kitten season always brings litters. But no other furry family here came into the world quite like this.
