How To Help

Catnip Casa Cat Refuge is a 501(c)(3). We are a Platinum-rated GuideStar charity.

Donations are deductible!

Visit our Shop and Save page for everything! You shop. Stores donate to Catnip Casa!

I know cars are worth a premium now, but when your kid’s first car or college clunker dies, you can get rid of it at Donate for Charity and help Catnip Casa while you get a tax deduction too. Donate a car, truck, motorcycle, RV, boat, or even property to help a good cause.

You may also be able to donate by using reward points from American Express, Bank of America, FedEx, and more, if your reward program offers CharityChoice as a selection when you redeem the points. Catnip Casa is on the list of approved charities.

In addition, you can Donate Stock. It’s easy, quick, and you won’t pay taxes on it. It’s all done for you, and you get the receipt. See our step-by-step graphic here.

  • Avoid Capital Gains Tax of 15% – 32.8% (federal and state) and NII Tax of 3.8%
  • Deduct the fair market value of the stock (regardless of your cost basis)
  • Let the nonprofit keep the proceeds that would have gone to the IRS
  • It’s now Fast, Safe, and Free

We have resumed picking up donations in the Austin Metro area. Due to gas prices, we set an approximate boundary (north of Lady Bird Lake, west of  130, east of 360/183, and south of 45). Please allow 72 hours. The pickup must be in small enough packages to be easily handled by one adult who is not Superman, and food must have at least 3 months before the expiration date.

We are also happy to arrange for you to drop off donations. (contact page)

Since we are small, we can use supplies in smaller quantities than large organizations. Leftover food, litter, toys, and treats, your cat won’t use or won’t eat allow us to put more money extratheextrablackcattoward the high medical expenses we incur.

Right now, we have two seniors that need dental work, in addition to the ongoing medical care for the chronically ill kitties. Dental care for seniors that need extra care, monitoring, and hospital stays, may cost $700 to $1500 per kitty, depending on the amount of surgery and other health conditions.

Contact us to arrange a pickup of local donations in Austin, Texas.

Please allow at least 72 hours for local donation pickup.
