Mona Lisa is a pretty Siamese cross, silver tabby in colour. She's about 9 years old, and very confused and sad about the loss of her home. She needs a new loving home where she can feel comfortable and safe, preferably with her siblings. She was rescued along with several other cats years ago and have lived safe and loved until now. Now they no longer have a home. Their owner is sick and will not be coming home to love them anymore. They are scared and confused and need to find loving homes to take them in so they once again will feel safe. For this to happen twice in their life is heartbreaking.

Needs hypoallergenic kibble Jasmine approx 6yrs old has spent a month at the HAS. Jasmine is as sweet as her name suggests. She is a truly beautiful girl that loves head rubs and will reward you with purrs and licks. She has a sad past though. She is afraid of feet. She will stare at them intently and panic if you move too fast around her. It's our belief she must have been kicked repeatedly for her to have this intense fear. We will shower her with love and affection and when she learns to trust again, we know she will make a lovely companion to someone very special. *** FOSTER for JASMINE NEEDED ASAP *** Jasmine is 6. Rescued after a month at HAC, she was in foster care and now needs a foster again, as soon as possible. Urgency is dictated by her hypoallergenic diet (kibble) provided by Special Ones, as she can't be fed strictly separately with other cats at the shelter. Jasmine developed a stress related allergy like skin condition treated by a vet, but needs a stress free environment and a foster with no other cats or dogs ideally, not to risk mixing the food. Her canned wet food is not a prescription one. Please message us, if you are able to foster our sweet girl to help her heal and find her forever home soon.

Meet a beautiful 1-year-old girl named Helen. She is microchipped so we believe she was abandoned once, rescued and adopted out, then subsequently abandoned again. Sadly, no one answered the contact number on her chip. She spent a couple of months at Hamilton Animal Services before Karen brought her to safety. Because of her stressful experiences, it took her some time to warm up to her foster family. She has since become a late night couch cuddle buddy!!! We believe Helen would thrive in a quiet home without young children. She is fabulous with other cats, however, we are unsure of how she is with dogs. This beautiful young girl who wears her heart on her coat? Helen deserves a family that won't ever abandon her, ever!
