  • This pretty tabby loves to play and give her human head bumps.


  • Pretty Nadia is a medium haired tabby who is looking for her forever home. She is less than 1 year old.
  • Nadia would do BEST in a home as the only cat to start.
  • Nadia is a sweet girl who likes to make biscuits! She purrs and loves head scratches!

  • Gentle Lionel is being fostered by a friend of SOAR, and is being posted as a courtesy.
  • Lionel is a 2 year old male cat, white with a semi long haired coat, which will require brushing.

  • He LOVES cats, NO dogs please!
  • Lionel is a bit shy and should go into a cat savvy home; he is potentially hearing impaired but it doesn’t slow him down.

  1. Where is Astoria? The black and white tuxedo from Petco in Whitehall? We may be interested in her. Visited her twice. We just bought a home and it feels very empty. Thank you. Kayleigh & Jordan

    1. Hi Kayleigh & Jordan,

      Astoria is living at Petco in Whitehall. We have adoption hours on Saturdays from 10-1, or we can have a volunteer meet you during the week to visit her, with an approved application.

      Can you please fill out an application on this website?

      Thank you!

      1. I just saw your comment. Did Astoria ever find a home in Petco whitehall? She wasn’t outside to be viewed back in march the 3rd time we went so we just assumed she was adopted. If we would have known we would have adopted her.

        1. Hi there,
          Yes, she was adopted a few weeks back. I had written back and asked you to fill out an application, so if we did not get an application, we would not know your interest in adopting her. Our animals do meet and greets only after approved applications (unless it’s Petco hours on Saturdays).

  3. Hibiscus and Boots (well all of them) are so beautiful and sweet looking. I hope they all find their forever homes soon because they are sweethearts! I hope Hibiscus gets to come home with me but I’m wishing the best no matter what.

  4. Good morning! I’m reaching out to you on the little gray kitty that was posted yesterday by Shawn Lynch. I have an updated application filled out from the beginning of this year. I also have adopted 2 kitties from Soar last year. Been searching from a gray kitty for months now and I’m super excited to see this little guy! Looking forward to hearing back from you ❤️ Thank you!

    1. Hey Josie,

      I think you have been corresponding w/ Shawn, and I sent your application to our VP to be reviewed. Typically the applications are only good for 30 days, but I know the kittens you had previously wanted were adopted.

      If you have other questions, please call the phone number on our home page, listed under “adoption info.”

  7. Hello ,I’m aleesha,I’m looking to take Loki in if he is still available, does he get along with other cats? I do have a 2 year old female tuxedo what application would I have to fill out for adoption ?

    1. Hi Aleesha!

      Please fill out our on line application on the adoptable cats, or application page. I am not sure if Loki gets along with other cats, but I will ask his foster. He is at Petco in Whitehall if you want to meet him. We can do meet and greets after an approved application, or on Saturdays from 9-11 AM.
