Nevel was a 13-year-old stray when he came to RAPS under very sad circumstances. A fellow who had been feeding Nevel for weeks was concerned that Nevel was becoming increasingly thin. Our Animal Control Officer investigated and found Nevel was skin and bones, with a large infected wound on his side. A vet said Nevel had likely been shot with a pellet gun and the infection was so bad he didn’t expect him to survive.
This prognosis didn’t take into account Nevel’s determination or RAPS’ commitment to support every animal’s second chance.
RAPS is committed to a no-kill policy that ensures animals like Nevel live long, happy lives. His story is not unique. The more than 800 animals in our care require medical care that can add up to $20,000 a month. Your support makes it possible for Nevel and so many others to survive and thrive.

Lovely and gentle 'Teemo' is ready to find her new home. Teemo came to the shelter after her owner realised that she wasn't able to give the time and care that Teemo required.
This 3 year old chinchilla would benefit from more handling, as she is still a little skittish. Teemo is curious but reserved; we expect that with a lot of interaction, she will become more sure of herself and bond deeply with her owner (a common trait of chinchillas).
Chinchillas require specialised care, so we recommend that Teemo finds an experienced home, or a home that has done their homework! Chinchillas can live up to 20 years, require a specialised diet to maintain their health, need a large living space, dust baths to maintain their plush coats, a temperature controlled environment and of course, a great deal of attention.

Beautiful 2.5 year old Molly is full of personality. She was surrendered to RAPS after her owners parted ways, and neither was able to take Molly with them.
We've learned quite a bit about Molly during her time at the shelter. She had a hard time settling in, but slowly and surely, she let us win her trust. Most people would describe her as having major 'cattitude', but we think it's more of an endearing quality.
Not a huge fan of being picked up, Molly prefers a calm and respectful approach. She does not like to be touched head-on, but rather from the side. She welcomes and enjoys full-body stroking, but will let you know when she's had enough. She is playful and active and loves climbing. Molly co-exists quite nicely with the other cats at the shelter; we also feel she could hold her own with a dog.
Molly would do best in a cat-experienced household with someone who is familiar with reading and interpreting cat body language. She gives very distinct signals and could live quite amicably with someone who understands what she is trying to convey. Because of this, Molly would do best in a household with no children.
