Sex: Male/Neutered
DOB: September 2000
Arrival Date: September 12, 2004

Salter was abandoned in the Queensborough area of New Westminster where he lived on his own with help from some friendly neighbours. He's very loving but a bit shy -- that's what living on the streets can do to a guy!

Amy has come to RCHS for a second chance. Her elderly owner can no longer take care of her. She's a gentle sweet 14 year old "Lady Cat" and is used to a quiet home with a senior. She is a little timid until she gets to know you.

Sex: Female/Spayed
DOB: August 01/09
Arrival Date: October 25/16

Her name is Beaches but her people called her "Kitty". She's been an only cat since kittenhood and lived with adults only so not used to much "action". Her People are moving to Alberta to live with relatives and there is an allergy concern. (If Kitty - Bea's folks get a place of their own and she not adopted she might move to Alberta). She's a reserved introvert but not mean and once she gets to know someone, she's friendly. Needs a quiet home with adults only.

Tia (Special Needs)

Breed: DSH
DOB: October 02/06
Sex: Female/Spayed
Arrival Date: March 07/08

Tia came to us in October 2006 along with her son, Little Beau. They were adopted together from Petcetera but I guess it wasn't a good home for "Tia" because she seems to have been very stressed there. Tia needs a peaceful home with adults or older kids.


sparklei largeColour: Calico
Breed: DSH
Sex: Female/Spayed
DOB: August 23/12
Arrival Date: October 25/16

Sparkle was the "victim" in a multi-cat household so she needed to escape the boys who were making her life miserable. She's outgoing, social and likes people. She is ready to find a new home and preferably be the one and only kitty.

Francine (special needs)

francine largeColour: Black & White
Breed: DSH

DOB: 2005
Sex: Female/Spayed
Arrival Date: October 05/06

Francine is very timid but a very sweet cat and we would like to see her have a chance at a normal life and a real home as opposed to scurrying about an industrial yard and never getting enough food or shelter. Francine has made great progress overcoming some of her fears since she came to us in 2006. Francine has been at the shelter for a long time and may take quite a while to adjust to a new home. But with enough love and patience, she may be able to adjust because she does love attention and petting when she gets to know you. Best for a quiet home.

Spunky (Special Needs)

spunky largeColour: Tabby & White
Breed: DMH
DOB: October 2010
Sex: Female/Spayed
Arrival Date: May 23/13

This semi-feral little cat was at the shelter in June 2013 and after her mats were shaved off she went back to her mom and bro at an autowreckers in Surrey. After her protector friend quit working there and moved to the interior she must have decided to go find him as she disappeared for about eight months.  She ended up at the Surrey Animal Centre as a stray, totally matted but otherwise okay so they shaved her and one of our people went and got her and here she is, back at the shelter. Our little diamond in the ruff is very sweet but a bit on the timid side. She has been used to being outdoors and will need easy access to the outside.
