Do you take cats from the public?
No, We do not take cats from the public. We only either trap cats who are going to be euthanized or pull cats from the shelters who are on death row. Our mission is to save cats who are too aggressive/feral/scared/etc. that would normally be put down for their behavior. We work on their behavior and their fears until they are adoptable. If you feel you need to rehome your cat, please contact shelters in your area. They are designed for that type of work, whereas we only save cats who are at risk of euthanasia due to temperament issues.
There is a stray cat in my neighborhood, will you trap them for me?
This depends on the situation. Stray animals need to be brought to the humane society to see if their rightful owner has been looking for them. It would not be right for us to keep someone's pet without trying to get them back home again. If you catch a stray cat please bring it to the shelter/humane society in your area.
What happens when a cat gets trapped?
Once we have caught a cat in one of our traps, it will go straight to the humane society. They will keep him/her on a stray hold for owners to reclaim if the cat is theirs. If no one claims the cat they assess it's behavior. If the cat is deemed unadoptable for any reason they contact us to reclaim the cat. After that they spay/neuter, feline leukemia/feline aids test, vaccinate and ear tip. Then they come into our rescue's care.
What is your adoption process and how long will it take?
Please check out our adoption page for more information on adoptions. In general each applications take anywhere from 1 to 5 business days.
Do you have a shelter/building?
No, We are a very small rescue that is all foster homes.
How can we help?
Check out our volunteer section. We are always in need of more foster homes as well as monetary donations. If you would rather spread the word about the rescue, that is always appreciated as well.
What type of donations do you take?
Monetary donations are always helpful, Litter (both clumping and non-clumping), Canned kitten food, dry cat/kitten food, live traps, large and extra large dog crates, hard topped cat carriers, and thick towels. If you have another idea send us a message.
Are any of your cats declawed?
No, we do not believe in declawing any cats.
Why are the fees so high for each cat?
Our fees are not based on making a profit- they are based on how much money we put into each cat to save their life. Each cat gets spayed/neutered ($50), felv/fiv tested ($35), Microchipped ($25), Vaccinated ($40), Dewormed ($15), food, and litter. These are all basic needs for each cat in our care. This does not include any illness or any other unforeseen circumstance that requires more medical attention. We are not making money on any of these cats. Our goal is to find them new homes, so that means they need to be taken care of and tamed down before they find their new homes. Its a very expensive job to care for all of the cats in the rescue (We rely on donations and our own funding).
Do you rent out live traps?
Yes, we do. We understand the need to trap cats/or other nuisance animals at times and understand that some people would rather rent a trap then buy one. We offer trap rentals for $40 for the first week ($10 any week after that). Once the trap is returned in good working condition we will refund $20 back as a deposit. If the trap is damaged or broke while in your care we will not refund the deposit. Ask us for our multiple trap discount!
Why are some/most of the cats ear tipped? What happened to their ear?
Ear tipping involves surgically removing part of the left ear while the cat is under anesthesia for spay/neuter surgery. It is the universally accepted way to signify that a community cat has been spayed or neutered, which means no new kittens will be born, and that these cats have been vaccinated (At least once). Normally these are someone's barn or outdoor working cats and should be left alone unless they seem like they are friendly- then please bring them to the shelter for the owner's to reclaim.
