Brady arrived in our care on July 17th, 2014. This handsome black cat was just 9 weeks when he arrived, but had the maturity level of an older cat.

Brady would like nothing more than to have a home to call his own and to be surrounded by love and affection. Brady has been started on routine vaccinations and is house-trained. If you would like to make him a part of your family then stop by the Shelter at 1125 North Industrial Drive or call our Animal Care Center at 306-763-6110.
