At Feline Snoozers, we would like to recognize organizations that take care of felines and other animal friends.
Sanctuaries, humane societies and shelters across the world are out there helping take care of cats and dogs without forever homes (yet!). We’d like to share a little bit about these organizations with all our customers. Each month we will highlight an organization that cares for felines. Please help support these wonderful organizations!
From Rescue & Rehabilitation to Forever Families
For 150 years, the PSPCA has been rescuing animals from cruelty and neglect. It’s in our DNA – our founding principle and a core pillar of what sets us apart from other animal welfare agencies.
Humane Law Enforcement (HLE)
Our HLE Officers enforce the cruelty laws under the authority granted by state statute 22 Pa.C.S.A. Chapter 37 (HSPOS).
Treating and Rehabilitating the Victims of Cruelty
We are one of the country’s only animal welfare organizations capable of treating medical issues associated with severe abuse and neglect, including emaciation, dehydration, burns, broken limbs, embedded collars, lacerations, and infected wounds, in addition to the horrific medical issues resulting from hoarding, puppy mills, and forced animal fighting.
Bringing Abusers to Justice
Over the last three years, our officers conducted more than 16,000 investigations. These individual rescues varied in size from one to 300 animals and resulted in our officers saving over 4,000 animals.
The ultimate goal for all of us who advocate for animals is preventing cruelty from happening in the first place.
PREVIOUSLY FEATURED SHELTERS
Kentucky Humane Society
Shelters are not always about dogs and cats.
The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS), located in Louisville, KY, is a private, nonprofit organization that is Kentucky’s largest pet adoption agency. KHS is also the state’s oldest animal welfare organization, founded in 1884.
Humane Animal Care Coalition
JJs Helping Paws
LOCATED IN COLORADO
We are a non-profit (501(c)(3), all-volunteer-powered, charitable organization whose mission is to improve the lives of cats and dogs in Fremont County by working to reduce unwanted litters, educating pet owners about responsible pet ownership, and helping mitigate the cost of spay and neuter services.
JJ’s is absolutely elated to share some BIG news! A building has been donated to us to start a cat shelter in Cañon City! It will be called Molly’s Place – Home of JJ’s Helping Paws and it will serve as a shelter for owner-surrendered cats (last year we fostered nearly 500 owner-surrendered cats – at no cost to the cat owner!!!); our low cost spay and neuter voucher sales; our feral food pantry; and our TNR program.
Can you please help us? JJ’s is so grateful for your support.
Voorhees Animal Orphanage
Located in Voorhees, NJ
PETS FOR VETS PROGRAM
Voorhees Animal Orphanage is honored to be participating in the Camden County Animal Alliance “Pets for Vets*” program! Through this program, the adoption fee for adult (6 months of age or older), and senior animals will be waived. We hope this will help those who have served our country find a furry friend. We are grateful for all those in the armed services, and we know cats and dogs looking for a home will be grateful for their strength and support too, and especially their love!
Located in Hastings, MN
GLOBAL PARTNERING PROGRAM
Animals love unconditionally. Their love and devotion know no geographic boundaries. Neither does Animal Ark. We believe that an animal in need is exactly that, an animal in need, regardless of its geographic place of origin.
That is why we have partnered up with rescue organizations located as far as the Middle East & Mexico as well as across this country, south as Texas and north as the Dakotas. We feel honored that these rescue organizations entrust us with their beloved animals and place their hope in us to find them a safe and loving forever home.
ORCAT is Ocean Reef’s Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR) program for cats. In the late 1980s, Ocean Reef had a serious cat overpopulation problem. There were approximately 2000 cats on our island’s four square miles. In 1993, Ocean Reef resident, Alan Litman, with the cooperation of the Ocean Reef Community Association, founded and launched ORCAT. With funding and help from generous volunteers, the TNR project developed into an extremely successful operation.
Today, ORCAT is recognized as a model TNR program throughout the country. The ORCAT population is now around 350, about 100 of which reside at the Grayvik Animal Care Center.
The Cat House on Kings
The Cat House on the Kings is California’s largest no-cage, no-kill,
lifetime cat sanctuary and adoption center. Our mission is to place
rescued cats and kittens into loving, permanent homes; to provide a
safe, happy and healthy home for unwanted cats and kittens in a unique,
no-cage facility; to prevent pet overpopulation through spaying and
neutering; and to educate the public about responsible pet ownership.
The Cat House is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, receives no
government or public funding, and relies entirely on donations from the
public to carry out its mission. Since its founding 28 years ago, The Cat House on the Kings has saved over 30,000 cats and 7,100 dogs (not counting the 56,000 animals we have spayed and neutered!) and currently cares for more than 700 cats and kittens, a dozen or so dogs and dozens of peacocks.
More than 6,000 homeless dogs and cats will turn to the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando for caring, compassion and hope through our animal shelters this year. Pet Alliance provides food, medical care and shelter for dogs and cats until they find their new homes. The average length of stay for dogs is 8 days and for cats is 15 days. Pet Alliance’s live release rate averages around 96%, making it what is considered a “no kill” shelter.
Home for Life
Home for Life® is a registered 501 (c) (3) charity. Supporting this non-profit provides the animals of Home for Life® with food, veterinary care, toys and a beautiful facility to roam freely. 100% of donations go to helping these animals receive the medical care they need, as well as the affection and freedom to help them recover from illness, disability, mistreatment or neglect. Because of Home for Life, these incredible animals can lead the full, safe and happy lives they deserve. To learn more about Home for Life, check out their link below.
Dumb Friends League
Working with a compassionate community, their mission is to end pet homelessness and animal suffering. Founded in 1910, the Dumb Friends League, based in Denver, Colorado, is the largest independent, nonprofit community-based animal shelter/humane society in the Rocky Mountain region, caring annually for as many as 20,000 lost and relinquished pets, as well as hundreds of equines.
Pasado’s Safe Haven
On the forefront of fighting Animal Cruelty, we proudly feature Pasado’s Safe Haven. This organization rescues cats and kittens from a variety of cases and rehabilitates them at our sanctuary, just northeast of Seattle, while we search for their homes.
A cat is a companion like no other – independent, affectionate, serene, and wild all at once! For each cat and kitten adoption, Pasado’s Safe Haven is able to rescue even more animals. If you aren’t able to adopt, consider fostering a cat! You can help by providing a safe space and acting as the animal’s advocate.
