Welcome to Safe Place For Pets

Meet Marmalade: Marmalade is a very friendly 15 year old male orange tabby, who enjoys attention, and likes to play.

His favorite toy is a battery operated mouse. Marmalade is in good health and really likes food, and even though he is long and lanky, will need monitoring to keep his weight in check (don't we all!).

Marmalade is a very personable boy who likes to be petted, and held for a short periods of time. Then he is off to lay in the sun and watch the wildlife.

Marmalade is looking for a loving home where he can spend his days being a typical orange tabby, which for anyone who has had one, knows is a great thing! Make an appointment to meet Marmalade today!

Safe Place for Pets is celebrating 21 years!

For 21 years we've been helping the pets of the terminally ill find new loving homes and families to call their own. We have touched a lot of lives in our 21 years, both human and animal. SP4P thanks all of our past and present volunteers, supporters, pet partners, and donors. Without you, none of what we do would be possible. We are grateful for you.
