Updated 3/27/20: Following social distancing guidance from local, state, and national authorities, The Cat House’s regular public hours of Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6 – 8 and Sunday afternoons from 1:30 – 4 will be cancelled until early May, or until the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department has rolled back current public gathering restrictions.
Approved adoption applicants may visit during those hours to finalize adoptions. We continue to accept adoption applications; actually, so many people are interested in adopting now that our adoption callers are very busy and may take a few days to get back to you (a good problem for us to have!). A limited number of visitors may be in our facility at any given time; visitors may be asked to remain in their cars until others have exited the building. Adoption applicants should contact their adoption interviewer or email email@example.com to confirm plans.
Watch for updates to this plan. Thank you for your understanding.
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 (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.
