FOR ADOPTION: SHAMUS was a king in his past life and is looking for a home where he can be restored to his throne!
Shamus is a friendly, young adult male that gets along well with the commoners (humans, felines and canines alike). This prince has a bit of a wild side and can be quite the prankster when the mood strikes him. He is no stranger to being in the public eye and he thrives in the limelight; the centre of attention is where Shamus is meant to be! He will be happiest in a home where he has the freedom to safely explore his entire kingdom, inside and outside his the castle walls.
Shamus is up to date on all of his vetting and is more than ready to leave the shelter. If you think you've got what it takes to be Shamus's jester apply today at www.nwas.ca for a chance to meet him!

FOR ADOPTION: TINKERBELL is a stunning 3 year old female looking for her happily ever after.
This girl is as sweet as they come and sprinkles her fairy dust on everyone she meets. She loves people of all ages, but is most drawn to young children and babies. Tinkerbell is more cuddly than playful, and would love to snuggle the day away with her own little Peter Pan or Wendy. Tinkerbell's preference would be to be an only pet, though she will tolerate calm companions of the feline or canine variety. She has lived indoor/outdoor in the past or she could be very happy indoor only. Her beautiful coat will require regular grooming to prevent matting, but she is otherwise very low maintenance. 
Tinkerbell is spayed, vaccinated, and up to date on her parasite control. 
If you think you could provide our Tinkerbell with her very own Neverland apply today at for a chance to meet her!

Mac Print E-mail

We do our best to match the temperament and personality of the animals with individual and family needs. The 'suitability' factor is an important part of a successful animal/human match and helps to prevent animals going to the wrong homes

FOR ADOPTION: MR McFLUFFIGAN (better know as Mac) is a one year old male looking for a very special family.
Mac came into the care of NWAS almost 7 months ago with his feral momma and a brother named Jingle. His momma was adamant that she was to be feral and is now living in a safe barn home, his brother was very quick to adapt to the domestic life and has been happily adopted for many months now. Mac was on the fence, he couldn't decide if he was willing to trust humans but he sure did like the regular meals and warm place to sleep.
Mac has spent time in two foster homes and is now ready to start looking for his forever family. Thanks to the dedicated work of his foster families we have learned that Mac really enjoys the company of other cats and he would do best in a home with a confident kitty to act as a role model. Mac isn't the biggest fan of dogs, but he will tolerate their presence as long as they are respectful. He would also prefer a home free of small children. 
Mac would be best suited as an indoor only cat. His ideal home would have a mature person/couple or possibly a family with teenage kids that are not overly boisterous. In quiet environments where he is comfortable, Mac enjoys being pet and he is starting to seek out affection from the people he trusts most. He likes toys and would happily play with another young cat, but is not much for playing with his humans at this time. We know this boy has a lot of love bundled up inside and he is just waiting for the right family to show his true colours!
If you think he could be the home Mac has been waiting for apply today for a chance to meet him!

Need a barn cat? Print E-mail

Although the majority of cats can easily live as indoor house pets, sometimes we have cats whose only alternative is to live as a barn cat. Cats in our Barn program fall into one of these three categories:

· Feral cats (who have been born in the wild and are not used to being around humans)

· Cats whose litter box habits make them unsuitable to live in the house.

· Cats who were outdoor cats prior to surrender and cannot acclimate to an indoor home.

Please note that we do not adopt cats who are suitable to be household companions to barns. Most cats who have lived inside with humans come to depend on human companionship and do not enjoy being outside cats. In most cases they will always want to be inside with you. Adopting a barn cat can help you control a rodent population in your barn. If you do not have other barn cats, you may want to consider adopting a pair of barn cats through our program.

When you adopt a cat through our barn cat program, the cat will be spayed or neutered

What you provide

The barn owner who adopts a cat through our barn cat program should be prepared to provide:

· Shelter in a barn, outbuilding, or stable, away from high traffic streets

· Daily food and water

· A secure place to keep the cat for the first month, while the cat acclimates to your barn. This can be a tack room or an indoor enclosure that they cannot escape from. In some cases we may be able to lend you a crate or cage for the introductory period.

Things to consider

Adopting a cat through the barn cat program can help save the life of a cat who may not have other options. However, the care of a barn cat is still a responsibility. You will be assuming care for the cat for its entire lifetime. In exchange for providing the essentials of food & water and shelter, your barn cat will earn its keep by helping to control the rodent population in your barn.

We do not ask for adoption fees for barn cats. We do not always have barn cats available so if you are interested we can put your name on a list. Contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
