Meet Fianna!!

Now at Chuck and Don’s in Coon Rapids. Fianna came to us from another rescue. She was saved by a good Samaritan who had stopped to check out a crate in a ditch. It held 14 deceased cats that had been shot and Fianna, who was physically uninjured. Despite it all, she is trusting and seeks attention from people. She’s also playful and loves to purr. Fianna is happy to be alive and looking for the good life in a loving forever home. Go check her out today!


Love found and matches made

Ashlin, Banjo, Bobboso, Drizzle, Knight & Jester, Majesty & Monarch and Mr. Mike were adopted recently. Congratulations to all of them and their new families! Check out our other available animals on our website.

Now at PetSmart!

Tigress hopes you'll check her out at PetSmart Forest Lake. She's there now, but if she's not adopted beforehand, she'll be at our Adoption Day event this Saturday (11-2pm). Tigress likes to call the shots and would like to be your one and only. She's got enough pursonality to rule your roost and warm your heart. Read more about her our website, and see all the other kitties we have available, too. Get your adoption application in now. Tigress can't wait to meet you.












Who's Got Kittens? We Have!

Kittens are adorable, sweet, balls of fluff. If you aren't able to adopt a kitten, why don't you consider fostering? We have lots of homeless kittens and one of the kindest things you can do for them is become a foster. Providing a foster home for some kittens is the perfect volunteer opportunity. You get all the joy and love from these tiny babies whose only need is a loving foster home to care for them until they get adopted. 

If you would like more information on becoming a foster home, please complete our online Volunteer Application form or contact Amanda at 612-387-4869. You'll be glad you did!

Marisol's Babies

Their foster mom captured some cute pics for us. The two gray ones, Mamoncillo and Persimmon were snuggling in the cat tree, and Pomelo and Kiwii were taking a play break. Mamoncillo is just over halfway through her treatment for FIP, and all the boys are almost halfway through observation. Their foster mom wrote, "Everyone is very healthy and happy. They are some of the most entertaining kittens I’ve fostered. They have big personalities and I am very excited for everyone to be FIP survivors and finally be able to find their forever homes."


Yay Tiana!

Baby steps, but progress. Tianna is eating on her own more consistently. Her fever broke, but her mouth is still infected. We are encouraged by her desire to eat.Thank you for your well wishes and support for her. 

Knight and Friends

Happy Valentine's Day!! We need your heart and TLC. Kittens season has begun, and these 4 need a willing and able foster home. They get spayed/neutered this week and should be ready for adoption after ~6 weeks. If you'd be interested in fostering them or others, please complete and submit out online Volunteer Application. Knight, Majesty, Monarch and Jester hope you do! 

Guess who was discharged!? Tiana's pelvis is healing; the left side more so than the right. She's able to be weaned off her medication and is wrap-free but under strict cage rest. Tiana will have a recheck in 2 weeks. We appreciate your support for her.










Tianna Follow Up

Here is Tianna all bandaged and wrapped up.  South Shore Veterinary Hospital in Forest Lake is taking good care of her. Everything is going well so far and it should be status quo for a while, with bandage changes, etc. Thank you for your continued support for her.












Mr. Mike and FriendsHaving fun in the storage room -- Mr. Mike, Mr. Max, Miss Midge, Miss Carmel,THING 1 and THING  2 with their foster dog. Mr. Mike, Miss Midge and Miss Carmel are now at PetSmart Forest Lake. Mr. Max, the social buddy, stayed back to help THING 1 and THING 2 with their people skills. Read more about them on our website to make your match.




Tianna Update  (See our earlier post for her troubling story.)

Tianna doesn’t need surgery, or more accurately, cannot have surgery. They can’t fuse her pelvis at the growth plates due to her being a kitten, and she wouldn’t grow right which would cause issues. She will be hospitalized for a week for intricate bandage changes that they got instructions on how to do from a specialist. The hope is that the bones can stay in place long enough to heal appropriately for her overall well-being. She is eating great and urinating normally. Her left eye is intact and should be okay. It looks rough and swollen because her face is bruised and her eye has road rash around it. Someone asked if you could make a donation directly to southshoreveterinaryhospital and have it applied to our account. Absolutely! Thank you for the prayers and contributions to Tianna. We’ll keep you posted.








Smoke and Ashe

Smoke & Ashe (black) were found together as strays. Ashe is a playful, curious kitten, and Smoke is a sweet, young girl. Both are good with kids, other cats

and dogs and would make wonderful additions to any family. Come meet them tomorrow at Adoption Day (11-2), PetSmart Forest Lake.


Pauly, Bizkit & Oreo will be at Adoption Day on Saturday, January 27  (11:00 - 2:00), at the Forest Lake PetSmart. Lots of kitty paw cuteness with this bunch. Two of the kittens have extra toes! Go to "Available Animals" on our website to see all the kitty options and submit your adoption application.

For any adoption on Saturday, you will need an approved application on file. See you then!

Baby Tiana

A good Samaritan saw this little kitten struggling in the middle of the road, rescued her and reached out for assistance. SFAAR has taken her in, and Tianna is being cared for at South Shore Veterinary Hospital in Forest Lake. She was sedated for full-body x-rays and had bloodwork done. Little Tiana  has a ripped lip, road rash and bruising on one eye. She also suffers from a broken tail and pelvis.  The veterinarian said these are the same types of injuries she sees with animals who have been thrown out of a moving vehicle.

Tianna's lip was was repaired under anesthesia and her broken tail was amputated. She needs a consult with a specialist to see if treatment for her broken pelvis will be cage rest or if surgery will be required to repair it as it's broken at the growth plates. Tianna will need extensive care. 

We appreciate any amount of donation to help support her. Thank you to South Shore Veterinary Hospital for seeing her so promptly and caring for her.
