Extra Care for Long-term Residents

At ROAR most of our residents come through our doors and, a after a short period of loving care here at the shelter, leave for their new homes. But, sometimes, even a sweet, beautiful animal gets passed by due to no fault of his/her own. The timing just isn’t right and the perfect match takes a little longer to be made. Because of their lengthier stay with us, these animals receive a little extra care. Some are given foster homes where they are exposed to real life family noises and smells as well as others animals and a real home life. Others receive extensive training in behavior classes and by ROAR’s trainers. The animals flourish in these situations instead of becoming more and more despondent while waiting for a home. Bailey, Simba & Ham are some of our favorite examples.



Olive is a sweet, beautiful, black-and-white Tuxedo girl who is just four-years old. She is a loving, gentle and resilient cat who forms special connections with humans.

Olive was adopted from ROAR, but as time went on, many other cats were too much for her to handle. So she was surrendered and found herself under ROAR’s loving care again.
Having been in a home, Olive is having a hard time adjusting to shelter life again and the change in her surroundings.
As much as she receives a truckload of kindness from our volunteers, she spends most of the day in her cat condo in her comfy bed. Olive is sweet-tempered and loves pets and neck rubs. She will blossom and be her true self in a loving home.
Olive is looking for someone with a big heart who is patient and kind, and will give her time to find her way in a low-key and calming home. She would do best in a home without other cats or kids.
Olive is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on her vaccinations.
***Please remember to keep your cats indoors, especially during this time of year, as predators are active preparing for the harsh weather ahead.***



Courage is a handsome, three-year old, black and tan Coonhound mix who would love to find a family of his own who will give him lots of love and exercise.

This sweet, loving and smart boy came to ROAR  from S.A.F.E. (Saving Animals From Euthanasia), a rescue based in Florida. S.A.F.E. knew ROAR would find Courage a place in someone’s heart and gave him safe passage here.
He is great on a leash, loves to go for walks and is doing great with learning commands too.
Courage is up-to-date on vaccinations, neutered and micro-chipped.
