- Learn more about Repite Care (short term) Fostering, why it saves lives and helps our local shelters too.
Love & Cuddles Pet Respite Care program: We strive to keep dogs and cats with their families by providing temporary foster care when owners must be hospitalized. We do this by partnering with local agencies that serve seniors, disabled, or disadvantaged pet parents without resources. Keeping these pets safe and sending them home when the owner is well benefits the owners’ recovery, while also allowing the shelters to use their space for truly homeless pets. Of course, we occasionally end up with animals that need adoption too. We are 100% no kill, and we never give up.
Catnip Casa Cat Refuge Mission: Catnip Casa Cat Refuge is the parent organization, which 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. 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 unique needs, including rehabilitation, along with caregiver training and support to adopt them into loving homes.
We educate owners, caregivers, professionals, and the public, about caring for cats and dogs 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. We 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 (NO owner surrenders). Our organization partners with community programs that serve seniors, veterans, and disabled persons who may lose their pets without our assistance. We constantly work to expand our network of providers and foster homes. There are many worthy animals and people waiting for help.
