Some of you may have already heard Karen’s story. She was rescued from a less than ideal situation with 124 other cats, a number of whom were undersocialized and very scared. Karen is personally working on being more confident, along with several of her siblings at the Center. They have work to do, but hope you will have the patience to provide each of them with the time they need to learn to trust and have confidence again. Karen enjoys a quiet and calm environment in which she can explore at her own pace. She can be slow to warm up and would prefer someone who will understand her needs. Due to her “scaredy-catness,” Karen would prefer a home without children or dogs. She hopes you’ll give her the chance to become the princess she’s always known she can be!

Karen and other pets in need of homes are in the care of the not-for-profit Center for Animal Health and Welfare., which is located in Williams Township.
