Abandoned in an Apartment, Wendy hopes for a Second Chance!

Poor little Wendy was found in an abandoned apartment last week.  The landlord believed she was on her own in the apartment for up to a month!  Safe at the shelter, and glad to have food and water, Wendy can't wait for someone to give her a permanent, comfortable home! Very friendly with people, loves attention, but can be sassy at times if you ignore her.

This kitty is available for adoption at the Lakewood Animal Shelter, located in the Cleveland Metroparks, on Cleveland Metroparks Drive (Valley Parkway) just south of the Dog Park. Adoption fees are always - only $35. The fee includes a deworming treatment, an initial vaccination, flea prevention treatment, a collar with identification tag, a cardboard carrier, and an initial wellness exam with a second vaccination from participating local veterinarians.

Adoption hours are Tuesdays & Thursday 12 to 6, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays 12-4. Please visit our website at and our blog at

A Fur-ever Home for Francis!

Francis is one of the most lovable talkative stray cats we have ever met. 

This fellow has been living on streets for almost a year now. We've never seen him hunt or be aggressive toward other animals or humans. He would prefer the lifestyle of being a lap-cat in someone's home. He loves to eat, roll around, and chat.


He's neutered, ear tipped, received his initial vaccination, including his rabies, and was treated with Revolution. He's all black with a white spot on his chest and green eyes. If you're interested in helping Francis by fostering him or providing him a fur-ever home, email us at
