Zane's Story

Zane is a sweet, playful cat whose life was upended when his owner passed, so he’s finding new situations and new people a bit scary. He still loves toys of all kinds—especially wands and lasers—so expect plenty of entertainment watching him jump, pounce, or gaze at prey from the window. This independent guy would thrive in a calm, low-stress environment, especially with a feline buddy to show him the ropes. 

Are you Zane’s new family? You might be if you can provide a quiet home, plenty of toys, and the patience to help him learn to love again.

Meet Zane

Zane can’t wait to meet you!

If you’re interested in adopting this pet, please complete the following steps:

1. Start by taking our ComPETibility Quiz to make sure they’re a good fit for your home. Your ComPETibility Score will help you compare your home to each pet’s needs!

2. After completing your ComPETibility Quiz, you will be emailed a link to complete your Adoption Application.

3. After finishing the adoption application, complete the Adoption Inquiry Form! Once this form is submitted, our Adoption Team will take a look at your adoption inquiry and reach out within a few days.

Please note that while we can’t place holds on adoptable animals for your scheduled appointment, there are always plenty of homeless pets looking for a home! If you don’t meet the perfect pet, please feel free to complete a new Adoption Inquiry Form or visit our Adoption Center. Walk-ins are always welcome, but appointments are recommended for a more efficient visit!
