Gemini Adoption Special: Double The Pleasure, Double The Fun! 

Now through June 21st, Adopt a bonded pair of adult cats (one year or older) with from Purrfect Pals for only $100.00!

Bonded pairs are unique. Many cats can coexist peacefully with others, while a fair number actually prefer a home with no cats. Truly bonded pairs are, like twins, inseparable. When bonded pairs come into shelters they often have a more difficult time getting adopted than single cats. Unfortunately, separation can be devastating for these cats and can actually result in a dramatic decline in health. We try our best to keep pairs together, despite the fact it may take longer to find them the right homes. From May 21 to June 21, as the sun moves through the astrological sign of Gemini, we are celebrating our bonded pairs one year and older by reducing the adoption fee for the pair to $100. If you’ve ever wanted cats who truly love each other, complete each other’s sentences and spoon together in a puddle of furry awesomeness, please consider one of our stellar pairs. You’ll be amazed at how these cats reward you and complete your family and you’ll discover a whole new world of felinity. If you’re ready for an experience like no other, we’d love to introduce you to our bonded pairs. You’ll never go back to having just one cat after having a bonded pair in your life. Trust us - it’ll double, even triple the joy in your life!

New Beginnings for Two Grieving Kitties

New Beginnings for Two Grieving Kitties

One of the saddest things we see at Purrfect Pals is grieving kitties whose owners passed away far too soon. Earlier this year, one of our wonderful supporters lost her battle with cancer after a long, brave fight. The loves of Tara Jill's life were her bonded kitties, Melody and Ivy Jane, and she entrusted Purrfect Pals with their care after she left us. One of the most special things...
