KITTEN BABY SHOWER!
Kitten season is almost upon us. We have pregnant mama cats in our foster care system waiting to give birth. These mama kitties are often found as pregnant strays, and we couldn’t be happier to give them a safe place to give birth.
Soon the shelter will be filled with the pitter-patter of tiny feet … or even tinier feet, as the case may be. Having kittens in the shelter is so fun … and also expensive. We ensure every kitten has a thorough checkup and vaccinations, is spayed or neutered and is microchipped before being adopted.
Would you want to help with our incoming batch of kittens? If so, CLICK HERE to learn more or make a donation.
We appreciate any help you can give (and our mama cats appreciate it too)!

Make a Donation
Our organization continues to thrive through the efforts of our volunteers and in-kind donations of services and supplies, adoption fees, and monetary contributions. You can support the care of our cats and kittens through a variety of resources found on this page.
To give you an example of how far your donation goes, consider this …
$25 will help us cover a month of cleaning supplies that keep our shelter clean and our volunteers safe (disinfectant, gloves, and hand sanitizer stations)
$50 will feed 10 of our adorable cats for a month
$100 will significantly offset medical costs to prepare a cat for adoption (complete physical exam, spay/neuter, rabies, distemper, feline leukemia/aids test, microchipping, and other treatments)
$200 covers nearly 10% of our monthly operational costs (rent, utilities, insurance, etc.)
Thank you for your continued support of Caring for Cats!
We Are Fiscally Responsible with Your Donation.
They Have Time Because of You
Sponsor a Cat
WHY SPONSOR A CAT?
Maybe you can't take in another cat.
Maybe you're compassionate but allergic.
Maybe you want to do more.
In those cases, please consider sponsoring a cat.
Several of our cats have special needs or are older, making it challenging to place them in permanent homes. By sponsoring one or more of these cats you can help us provide food, shelter, and healthcare for these wonderful animals, who need all the love and care we can give them.
You can sponsor a cat for six months ($60) or a full year ($120). We will mail you a letter thanking you for your support along with a picture and history of your sponsored cat, and we'll send you updates periodically.
Sponsorships make wonderful gifts, too. We will send a special recognition card to you and will mail a personalized letter acknowledging the sponsorship to your loved one.
Some of the cats available for sponsorship can be seen HERE (or you can specify "oldest cat" or another request on your form.)
CLICK HERE to sponsor a cat. After you've filled out the form, there will be an area where you can specify which cat (or cats) you would like to sponsor. If your cat is adopted, we'll transfer your sponsorship to another cat in need.
Your recurring donation makes a huge difference in the lives of our kitties. Even $10 a month helps to offset the costs of feeding and cleaning expenses.
No donation is too small.
You are making a difference.
We appreciate your support and so do the kitties.
