Shadow is one of IVAR's longest residents and needs a home of his own to flourish!  Shadow loves going for walks and adventures with volunteer Jean and is always up for snuggles on the couch.  This special boy prefers a home with no other pets and no children as they make him nervous.

Our Pearl is quite the treasure! The majestic Pearl loves to lounge in the sunlight on a soft blanket or a big comfy bed. She proudly reigns over any place she resides. While she really isn’t fond of other kitties, she absolutely adores getting love, combed and petted by a loving person. Pearl has lots of love to give and is looking for a special person who will take care of her and love her.
