The Goathouse Refuge has many incredible cats in need of loving homes.


A strong, reliable volunteer force plays a crucial role in our rescue organization.


Tax deductible donations and gifts of goods to help run the refuge are always welcome.

2013 Garden Gourmands was a great success!

Party scene_2The rain held off, the food was amazing, and the volunteers were outstanding. A big thank you from the cats and kittens to all the volunteers who gave up their weekend to help us make this the successful event that it was! You are the reason we can continue to save cats who have no other options.

These special people include: Chelsea Bane; Janet, Sophia & Dan Bogan; Abby & Tom Byland; Cornelia Capell; Karla Capell; Susan Clayton; Mary Ruth Coleman; Joan Danaher; Myra Ezell; Debra Fincher; Laura Gaffney; Diana Haywood; Mariska Leunissen; Rita Mannella; Terry Melville; Robert Moore; Tarrl Morley; Marilyn Penrod; Lorraine Rizzon; and Carol Wilson.
