Most of the cats Purrfect Pals takes in come from owners who are unable to keep them. We also accept transfers from partner shelters, however.
In 2013, 626 cats and kittens were transferred to Purrfect Pals from area shelters. 464 of these cats and kittens came to us from the Everett Animal Shelter (EAS).
In addition to the Everett Animal Shelter, Purrfect Pals partners with the Humane Society of Tacoma and Pierce County, Auburn Valley Humane Society, NOAH, the Olympic Peninsula Humane Society and other shelters in Snohomish, King, Skagit, Pierce and Clallam Counties.
We transfer in cats and kittens when our partner shelters are over capacity or unable to provide extraordinary medical care. These include senior cats, chronically ill cats, cats in need of hospice care and cats who have tested positive for FIV, Leukemia, Distemper, Ringworm, Hyperthyroidism, Diabetes and Calicivirus.
We even accept semi-feral kittens and very shy adults (who are fostered in our Monroe Corrections Kitten Connections prison program).
