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!
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.
Visiting the cats at the Grayvik Center is a very popular activity for children and adults alike, with visits often leading to adoptions. Visiting hours are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. If you are interested in adopting an ORCAT, please call the Grayvik Center email ORCAT@orcareef.com to make an appointment.
PREVIOUSLY FEATURED SHELTERS
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.
