- Help Save More Pets in 2016, Be a Foster Home for Love & Cuddles Respite Care for Dogs & Cats!
Our goal: We strive to place all animals that come to us in loving homes. Sometimes, that means a long-term foster home or pawspice care. Other times, it means a wait for a special family with the patience or skills to deal with special needs. Occasionally, we also have dogs that come through our Love & Cuddles Pet Respite Care program and are not able to return home for some reason. We are 100% no kill, and we never give up.
Our Mission: Catnip Casa Cat Refuge provides care for cats that require extensive rehab or lifelong pawspice care due to age, disease, or disabilities that do not allow them to remain in their home or community due to medical needs or behavioral challenges. These cats are not considered adoptable in most shelters. In the case of community cats, they are unable to function in their natural environment. The cats we accept have the potential to live well with specialized care. We strive to keep their environment safe and normal while addressing their unique needs, including rehabilitation and caregiver training and support to adopt them into loving homes.
We educate owners, caregivers, professionals, and the public, about caring for cats with challenges caused by age, disease, disabilities, or terminal illness. We strive to develop a network of persons, services, foster homes, and resources, that benefit the community by keeping senior and special needs cats out of shelters. We mentor trappers and actively support TNR (trap/neuter/release) for community cats.
Please do not contact us about taking your cat.
We do not take in cats from the public, and we are at full capacity until further notice. We constantly work to expand our network of providers and homes. There are many worthy cats waiting for help.
