CatTown is all about cats!
We believe that all cats deserve a chance to live happy, safe lives and deserve to be treated well.
Recent estimates report that 87 million community cats are homelss in the U.S. People abandon them or take them into humane societies where more than 71% are euthanized. We hope we can change things for the better in our communities.
We also provide cats with shelter, with vet care, and find adoptive and foster homes. For pet owners who are struggling due to evictions or forclosures, job loss, etc, we can sometimes offer temporary care for their cats until they can be reunited with their humans.
It all costs a lot of money.
CatTown does it's best to help cats that need it. We have had so many hard luck cats come here that we've decided to make it part of our mission. We help sick cats, injured cats, and cats that have suffered from abuse. We help them recover and if we can, find them homes.
We help people to take care of their cats if their cat gets sick or hurt and they don't have the time or skills to take care of the cat themselves. We work with their veterinarian to get their cat healthy again, or if that is not possible we also offer hospice care, like we did with Merlin. Merlin was in last stage heart failure and had developed diabetis. His owner was on the road much of the time, but knew Merlin could still have some good quality time so he came to stay with us. We were able to give Merlin 5 months he would have missed out on and he enjoyed those months. He became good buddies with SweetyPie cat and they made the most of those months.
We do what we can to help people find homes for cats that they can no longer keep by offering to put their pet on the internet adoption sites and including their pets in our adoption events and such. Often the shelter is the only other choice and since many people are surrendering theirs because they have to, and they still care about the kitty, they don't want to put their pet in a situation that they might not survive . It gives people another alternative if they aren't having any luck finding the cat a new home on their own.
We also help pet owners if they have to spend time in hospitals or nursing homes and have no-one to take care of their pets for long term care. Many elderly people with cats would have to surrender their cats to the shelter. We provide temporary care for their pets so that they can get their kitty back when they get back home. There's nothing sadder than someone having to lose their cat because the owner has health issues. The depression involved with that kind of situation often makes it so much harder for them to get better.
Please check out our wonderful galleries to see which new little friend(s) you may want to take home, or maybe you have a few in mind you'd just like to help feed and keep healthy with a donation. Either way we have many photos of the current available cats for both physical and virtual adoptions. We're dedicated to giving them the best care we can provide as well as to trying to find them good, loving homes to live in. We hope you'll find it in your heart to be one of them.
