Ways to Help

WE BELIEVE THAT CATS OF EVERY AGE, HEALTH CONDITION, AND TEMPERAMENT DESERVE A LOVING HOME. PLEASE HELP US WITH THIS MISSION.

DONATE

The Cat House is funded by donations and adoption fees. Adoption fees don’t even cover our vet bills, so we rely on donations to keep our doors open.

VOLUNTEER

The Cat House is staffed and managed by volunteers. With a wide variety of tasks available, there’s sure to be something that interests you and will suit your schedule.

SHOP AND DINE

You can help The Cat House at no cost to yourself, while doing things you do every day – shop, dine, and search.

WISH LIST

It takes a lot of supplies and equipment to care for the 150+ cats and kittens in our adoption and shelter facility and foster homes. See a list of some of them on our wish list.

Paw Pages Ad

The Lincoln Journal Star’s Neighborhood Extra section features a “Paws Pages” section each month. This is a great opportunity to showcase our cats in front of a large audience, but it’s not free – each advertisement costs $42 per month. Sponsoring one or more cat listings for a month or more would be a big help in finding them permanent homes. If you can sponsor a Paws Pages listing, please contact us.

Trap-Neuter-Return

Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is a humane method of population control to reduce the number of feral cats in the environment and improve the lives of existing cats and their human neighbors . It is a comprehensive, ongoing program in which stray and feral cats already living outdoors in cities, towns, and rural areas are humanely trapped, evaluated, vaccinated, and sterilized by veterinarians.
