Black cats and dogs are "invisible" in shelters, they are killed at far higher rates than pets of other colors. Please don't overlook me.

Tips For Finding Lost Cats

Cats seem to have a sort of homing instinct which in some cases have guided cats to travel hundreds of miles back to their home. Most indoor-only cats tend not to travel far. While an adventurous indoor/outdoor cat is more likely to roam, a scared cat may not trust their inner compass, get confused and get lost. Once a cat has wandered out of their comfort zone anything can happen to scare them further: Barking dogs, wildlife, loud traffic noise, teasing school kids, the list is endless.

How to Adopt: Things to Consider
Falling in love with a cat or kitten is easy and cat ownership can be very rewarding. Adopting a cat, however, is a big decision. Cats and kittens require a lot of time, money, and commitment—over 15 years' worth in many cases. Brigid's Crossing encourages you to think through your decision before you adopt a companion animal. +Read More
