Ways to Help
WE BELIEVE THAT CATS OF EVERY AGE, HEALTH CONDITION, AND TEMPERAMENT DESERVE A LOVING HOME. PLEASE HELP US WITH THIS MISSION.
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.
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.
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.
Inflation and supply chain issues are impacting The Cat House, along with everyone. Wet/canned food has been especially difficult to obtain. Cat litter (unscented, non-clumping) has also been hard to find at times. All donations are welcome, whether supplies or financial! Click the link below to see different ways you can help the cats. Thanks for your support!
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.
