Visit Our Adoptable Cats

You can now see ACHS adoptable cats at PetSmart! In addition to giving us a place to keep cats in need of homes, PetSmart provides litter and food and donates to ACHS for every adoption completed. In fact, PetSmart Charities is the largest funder of animal welfare in North America! Please join us in thanking PetSmart for helping ACHS help cats.

We’re also grateful to The Import House and Hyacinth Bean for fostering adoptable cats and kittens. Be sure to stop in these locally owned businesses to see adoptable cats available!

Dog Swim

Effective in 2013, ACHS no longer coordinates the annual Dog Swim. It’s now a program of My Sister’s Paws, a program of My Sister’s Place that helps survivors of domestic abuse keep their pets safe. Please continue to support the Dog Swim!
