Donate Food and Other Items

For feral and homeless cats, food may be in a dumpster of frozen garbage, and a drafty barn the only shelter from bitter life on the streets. Seeing healthy, well-fed, spayed/neutered cats in our managed colonies poke their heads out of their cozy shelters, we know we are making a huge difference, but there are so many more out there needing our help. One cat at a time, one colony at a time, we are getting the job done. Will you help us?

PERSONALITY PROFILE

These veterans range from feral to friendly with behavior issues making them un-adoptable into a traditional home. Accustomed to some human contact, most prefer to keep people at a distance, but may become more social over time.

HIRING PROCESS

We are eager to match a cat to you and your particular needs. The process requires a phone conversation, application approval and a few practical steps to help your new hire acclimate. For instance, some cats do better in pairs depending on your location and needs. Contact us today, we have cats standing by.
