“I care not for a man’s religion whose dog and cat are not the better for it.”

When you first meet Sage, KCAC’s 1-and-a-half-year-old Siberian husky that was owner-surrendered, it’s the mischievous glint in her eye that gives her away immediately.
She isn’t going to greet you with the sedate posture of a dog that waits for you to make the first moves to love her. She’s going to make sure that you know everything about her from the very beginning. What you see is what you get, so to speak.
And what you get is a sweet young girl that loves to play and run. Her high energy can seem daunting at times, so it’s important that her new family is willing to take as much time as is needed to train her.
And don’t think for a moment that Sage is OK with being ignored, even for a little while. Her mournful cries bounce off the walls of her cage every morning as she implores the staff to “come see me.”
Once she’s got your attention, the glint comes back into her eye as she pulls a volunteer across the great plains of Geneva on their way to a great adventure.
Sage sees other dogs as prospective playmates to share in her world, so it’s important that any potential canine housemate is able to handle having an energetic puppy in the house.
Are you ready to fall under the spell of Sage and give her all the attention and loving she needs?
Duchess, and her kittens Jerry, Peanut and Butter were all adopted and went to their individual forever homes. Congratulations to all!
Congratulations to Lily, one of the longest feline residents of the KCAC cat room. It took more than 100 days, but her forever family finally arrived.
It seems her many conversations with the cat room visitors paid off. We are so happy for you!
