History : Ekko was found alone, pretty skinny & very hungry in one of the communities we work with

Description: Ekko is a very spunky but sweet girl. She’s working hard on learning that puppy teeth belong on puppy toys and that her foster momma only wants kisses not puppy bites lol

History Came into care from a partnership rescue from one of the communities we work with.

Description. Brody is going to be a big boy when he’s all grown up. He’s a typical puppy that loves to run and play with other dogs. He’s a bit nervous with people and loves the reassurance of attention. Wherever you are he will be close behind. He does fairly well on a leash and is well behaved in a car.

He will be a very loyal companion.

Cats available for adoption

Christian Grey
Bob with his Santa hat on!

Bob & Christian Grey

This beautiful bonded pair was rescued from an alleyway in Edmonton and brought into care as kittens. Since day one, they have been scared of humans. Unfortunately, they were adopted out as kittens and returned (due to no fault of their own) two years later. This certainly didn’t help their fearfulness of humans. 

Bob and Christian Grey are looking for a quiet home with a patient and loving human(s).
frankie cat


History : Frankie came into care as a semi feral teenager. Frankie has come a long ways but still takes time to warm up.

Description: Hey everybody!!!
This is Frankie, and he is magnificent. This hunk of feline fineness has been in foster care for too long. Let’s find him his forever home!!
Frankie is great with other cats, he is so social and friendly. He loves laying around, batting around bottle caps, watching the birdies outside and chasing the little red dot.
Frankie does not enjoy being picked up or restrained, who does really? He will let you pet him, he really really loves being brushed and butt scratches.
Honestly he’s doing you a favor by not being a lap cat because look at the gorgeous white fur, you don’t want that on your clothes, do you?
Frankie would do best in a quiet home with lots of windows and perches. He has been around dogs and if they leave him alone, he will peacefully cohabitate with them.

If you want to help Frankie find his forever home then please fill out an application or share this post. 

gideon cat


History: Gideon was an only cat for many years with his owner. Sadly his human mom passed away and since has come into our foster care.
�Description: Gideon’s world has been turned upside down since losing his mom who he’s been with for his whole life thus far. He grew up as an only cat with no siblings so he hasn’t taken kindly to the other cat at his foster house. We aren’t sure how he would do with dogs or kids, but Gideon would do best in a calm household.
He has already starting bonding with his foster dad and loves to stalk the laser pointer or play by himself. He is not a snuggler but who knows maybe he could get there with more time. He’s a very good groomer. Gideon provides company but doesn’t ask for too much.

Miss Kitty

Hello! My name is Kitty. I’m approx 3 years old and have lived outside my whole life. I am a really sweet girl who doesn’t cause any problems. I use the litter box, don’t scratch anything and am just a petite sweetheart who would really love a home with a single person or a couple that could have another calm kitty but no dogs, they are for sure scary still. I have so much love to give! I did have 2 kittens a couple years ago (Chunk & Sloth), and after that I was spayed. If you think you have the perfect quiet loving home please apply today 


History : Sylvester came into care as a stray

Description: Sylvester can be shy at first but once he knows you are his person, he is so loving. His motor doesn’t ever stop, his feet are always kneeding, and if he can reach your face, head butts, face rubs and kisses come in abundance.
He gets along with other cats. He will play with them but if given the choice, he will choose people everytime.
Although he likes to cuddle and talk, he does not like to be picked up. Cuddles are always beside you and will only be on you when he deems it’s needed.
As you can tell from his round figure, food is important. Although living outside for the last 8 months, the neighbour keeping and eye on him, made sure food wasn’t an issue.
If you want a loving affectionate companion, this boy is for you. 

Theo & Tigress

History : Theo lived in a garage with little human contact before he came into care with HLH. He is now a happy house cat.
Tigress came in with her brothers and sisters, all feral kittens. She has taken the longest to warm up to people.
Theo is showing her people are ok.

Description : These two enjoy running around the house, playing in boxes and napping together. Theo is a lap cat and Tigress is slowly trying to join him there, she’s still a little skittish. They love treats, laying in their perch, in the sun, watching the world go by.
They are a bonded pair and must be adopted together 


History: Mac was orphaned with his sister cheese before coming to HLH and joining Brownies crew.

Description: This boy is the fearless leader of the group. He is truly the best of both worlds: plays hard, and loves harder. He is high energy, extremely playful, and adventurous. He also loves to sit on and ride around on peoples shoulders. You can pretty much always find him playing with one of his siblings or messing with his mama. When he is in the mood for cuddles there is nothing that will stop him, he’s a roly-poly purring machine who will rub on faces (especially those with beards) and flop at feet for belly rubs. He will truly be a wonderful addition to any family.
***Must go to a household with another cat or be adopted in a pair***
***Pairs well with Brownie or Cheese, or would do well with another younger cat in the household*** 

kittens and cats for adoption


History : Mini’s human passed away and the family that took her in had cats that picked on her, she was very shut down and traumatized when she came into care. She hid under the bed for a few weeks before warming up to her foster family.
Description : Mini is teeny tiny, she is very affectionate and sweet. Now that’s she’s more comfortable with her foster family, she just wants to be scratched and petted all day long! She is curious and enjoys being with her humans.
She is slowly warming up to the others cats but likes to be given her space.
Mini is purrrrrfectly ready for her next new adventure, a new home, and new friends.


History: Cheese was orphaned with her brother Mac before coming to HLH and joining Brownies crew.

Description: This girl has it all – she’s gorgeous, playful, and cuddly. She has been like a second mama to her litter, constantly cleaning her siblings and checking in on everyone. If she’s not wrestling with one of her siblings you can find her curled up at your feet. She’s obsessed with any toy she’s given and curls up into a lap when she’s tired out. Her bestfriend is Coconut and they can always be found grooming each other or napping. This beautiful little soul would make a great addition to any family that would give her lots of attention.
***Must go to a household with another cat or be adopted into a pair***
***Pairs well with Coconut or Mac, but would do well with any other cat***

History: Audi’s mom was spotted by a volunteer’s friend as a pregnant stray and then disappeared before we would get her into care. She was finally found again with babies and dad ( yup dad stuck around) in tow and we were able to bring the whole family in !!

His personality is coming out more every day and he’ll make a great addition to a home 


Description : Isabel is also a calico cat, she is a young female cat. She is fully vetted and is very close to her mom and sister. She also gets along with the resident older cats. Her foster mom has no kids or dogs therefore we’re unsure how’d she be with them. She’s a really good young cat , are you her forever home ?

History : Bella was found in her foster home’s back yard. We brought her to the veterinarian to have her checked out, that’s when we found out she was going to have kittens.

Bella is grey with light stripes and a pretty face with a pink nose. She has a strange tail which rests on her back when she lays down. Her foster has no kids or dogs therefore not sure if she has ever had exposure to them. She does though get along with the resident cats. Look at that pretty face !! 


History: He was surrendered to HLH at just 1 week old with his siblings and mama.

Description: Even though he’s younger than mac and cheese this boy is still the BIGGEST of the litter. He is Brownie’s little mini me and has us all double checking who’s who – a very long and lanky boy. He has a soft demeanor, is very playful and seeks out attention the moment he’s ready to get settled. His bright yellow eyes steal the show and he is the perfect definition of a sleek house panther. He can always be found playing with siblings or his toys and is happy to eat whatever is put in front of him. He would make a great addition to any home and has no fear of humans big or small.
***Pairs well with Banana but would probably do okay alone with lots of attention and toys***


History: This sweet girl was surrendered with her 4 babies. She was previously raised with dogs and children.

Description: This girl is mama extraordinaire, while raising four of her own she graciously “adopted” another two orphan kittens into her litter with ease. She is a little shadow and can always be found near her people. While she may not be a “lap cat” she loves attention and will chirp and roll around for more pets. She loves her food and can always be found napping in funny positions or grooming one of her babies. As she transitions from motherhood her personality is shining more and more, anyone will be lucky to have this sleek house panther in their family.


History: He was surrendered to HLH at just 1 week old with his siblings and mama

Description: This guy is the chillest of the litter and has the stone cold handsome looks to match. If he isn’t playing with his siblings you can find him cuddled on someone’s lap or in someone’s arms. His smoldering yellow eyes are enough to melt anyone and he has a low rumble purr to match. He has no fear of little kids and had lots of fun playing with them. He’s happy to wrestle or chase his siblings but is also content with toys and cuddles. He’s easygoing, devilishly handsome, cuddly, and would make an amazing pet in someone’s household.
***pairs well with avocado but would likely do okay alone if he had lots of attention and toys***


History: He was surrendered to HLH at just 1 week old with his siblings and mama

Description: This boy is going to be STUNNING. His luscious hair is just as soft as it is long which gives him the look of a majestic storm cloud. He is extremely loving and begins to purr as soon as you pick him up. He’s a social butterfly with adults and children alike and is always looking for company. He loves all kinds of food, toys and pets. He can usually be found snuggled at someone’s feet or messing around with toys. He will really be a special addition to anyone’s home and is adoptable to a variety of families.
***would do well with another younger cat in the household but would likely be okay on his own with lots of attention***
