A Different Kind

Our very own Reilly has a store to benefit all his friends at the shelter! I bet you did not know, but Reilly loves to ReCycle, ReUse and RePurpose (any wonder he resides in the Green Room?)! One of the main purposes of Reilly's ReTail Store is to make sure the items the shelter does not need does not get thrown out. It could be items that were donated that we have no use for and other items that were just unearthed like a lighted Christmas tree! We also have volunteers or friends of our kitties who love to make things for our shelter to sell, like the popular catnip filled fleece mats. Reilly would love to have as many cat-related items as possible.

Reilly's ReTail Store is not very big and is located right in the entrance of the shelter. If you happen to make anything you would like to donate to Reilly's Store, let us know! Small items are best and maybe just a few to start out.

Items that are not handmade will be priced so they sell quickly and need to be in very good condition or new. Prices will be reduced the longer it sits unsold.

Please contact us with any ideas or items you have. It will only be open to the public during Open Adoption Events. All donations need to be approved before dropping off because we do not have the space to store inventory. Contact us at or message us on our Facebook page!


This lovely black and white girl has had a lot of difficult adventures in her short life. Cassie is a wonderful companion to her humans, loves to play, enjoys a soft bed to sleep on, and looks forward to a warm spot in the sunshine where she can watch the spring flowers bloom. She would be happy to listen to her human discuss a busy day and will provide love and understanding for life’s trying times.

To adopt Cassie or any other cat or kitten, please call the Forgotten Felines adoption line at
