Reviews for Cat Connection

Rating: 5 stars  

Just as everyone favors their children over everyone else's, I think my cats are absolutely the best in the world. So, although I'm sure there are many, many worthy animal groups out there, for me there can never be one better than Cat Connection because my 3 wonderful "Poozers" came from there. Cat Connection often rescues cats from their very last days at shelters, and now having lived with these amazing, magical creatures for 2 1/2 years, I never cease uttering fervent prayers of thanksgiving to Cat Connection for having snatched them from the very jaws of death. It also breaks my heart to think that there are so very, very many more of them out there, each one its own amazing wonderful little individual personality (of course none as great as the Poozers, but still wonderful!). The fact that Cat Connection is out there with zero money fighting to save as many as they can, and giving them a great interim home in the "Cattery" at Beverly Oaks Hospital where they can play and be uncaged, is a miracle on a daily basis. One of my Poozers got sick with a respiratory infection right after I brought him home, and they took him back and nursed him back to health free of charge. They also let me board all 3 there shortly thereafter when we had the hottest day in recorded LA history and my building had a days-long power outage. Despite their lack of funds, they helped me when I needed them, because for them it's all about the animals, and they will selflessly do everything they can to make sure no animal is left in need. Please support them in any way you can!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

A close friend and I both adopted "children" from this organization and had incredible experiences with them.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make sure they got grants or money in some form so they could do more of the great work that they do.

Friend's recommendation. She got her cats from Cat Connection as well.

What, if any, change in your life has this group encouraged?

I am always more mindful of animal organizations, how much they do for so little, and I try to give more accordingly.

I've been a "foster mom" for almost 20 years. This is a wonderful organization started by a regular woman who saw the need. 100% of donations go to the animals for food, medical care and the cost to bail them out of the city shelters (the pound). No animals are ever kept in cages. The cats are either fostered in a volunteers home or in "the cattery". The cattery is a room full of kitty condos, ramps and trees where the cats can be seen daily. It's located next to Beverly Oaks Animal Hospital in Sherman Oaks at 14302 Ventura Blvd.

There are NO EMPLOYEES. All goes DIRECTLY to the animals. This is a small, home-grown, grass-roots 503c charity. All donations are fully tax deductible.

They have many cats and kittens for adoption. You can visit their website at www.catconnectionLA.org to see the animals or find out more information. Please contact them if you're looking to adopt a cat, or are interested in volunteering.

Thank you,

I'm a 20 year "foster mom". I keep the cats in my condo, giving them love and rehabilitating the scared and traumatized kitties. I've gone to city shelters (including South Los Angeles high kill) and pulled/rescued cats from there. I've transported animals to adoption fairs and for medical appointments.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Somehow adopt every stray or homeless animal in the world. Adopting a cat may not change your world, but it will change the world for the cat.
