There are a number of feral cats, a few that have special medical needs and some seniors that for whatever reason have been overlooked but are very happy here. We provide them a safe place to live, love them, and care for them. They do represent a considerable part of the costs of running the Refuge and we need Cat Angels to help with their monthly support.

You can make it easier for a kitty to be adopted by sponsoring a cat’s adoption fee of $125. Simply click on the Donate button above, submit a PayPal donation of $125, and indicate which cat or kitten you want to sponsor in the “Add special instructions to the seller” on the PayPal review page. We’ll list them as sponsored on our cats and kittens page and it might just be the thing that helps someone make the decision to adopt.
