Permanent Residents

In addition to rescue animals available for adoption, Velvet Acres is home to some animals that will live here for the rest of their lives. There are different reasons for this, unique to each animal. Here are our sanctuary residents, their histories, and why they are not available for adoption.

This group of cats is a feral colony that our co-founder, Emily, has been caring for since 2014.
