The leaders of IVAR take the COVID-19 outbreak seriously and to protect the safety of our staff and volunteers we will be closed for open Adoption hours in both the Cat and Dog Building through May 31st. If you are interested in adopting a cat or dog, please complete an adoption application under the Dog or Cat Application and upon approval we will set up an appointment to have you come up.

If you have any questions on the adoption process email 

Thank you for your understanding.

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.
