Cats In Need

We intake friendly cats from 7 months and older onto our wait list and are booked out a few weeks. We are full on spots for feral and semi-feral cats. There is a surrender fee of $100 if the cat is fixed and up to date on shots, $150 if fixed but not up to date on shots, and $200 if not fixed or up to date on shots. Seniors 12 and over have a surrender fee of $200 for their bloodwork and care. Contact us below to surrender! We are currently intaking into the first week of August due to the length of the waitlist.

We'll get back to you soon!
