Shelter Update on Hours of Operation
Happy is doing his meowy best to calculate the days until we can be open again 😊
We actually have had some improvement but we still have multiple cats in the front area being treated. This area is where visitors enter into the shelter 😢
If you want to drop donations off or have a special request, please contact me via private message, email me at or leave a message at 440-582-4990 😊
Please know that we are working very closely with our vets to clear this up as soon as possible. We hope it is sooner rather than later 🐾
We miss you all very much! 💜🐾

Adopting a Cat at Stay-A-While

Stay-A-While wants only the best life possible for our cats and kittens. To ensure that they get responsible loving homes, new guardians are required to agree to the following policies. A legal contract is signed upon adoption agreeing to these policies. Stay-A-While has the right to refuse any adoption based on the information provided during the pre-adoption interview.
