Reviews for Cat Depot

Cat Depot is the best animal shelter that I have ever seen. I have never seen another like it anywhere else in the US and I have seen many. It is very clean and the staff are very hardworking. It is unique in that cats are separated into large pods (rooms) depending on their age, dispositions, etc. and visitors/volunteers are able to interact with the kitties for hours on end. The staff and volunteers really love the cats and go out of their way to match cats with loving families. I love it! Go there...you will love it, too!

First off, I have never met so many rude people in one place. The staff is full of themselves and curt. Volunteers were better. I volunteer at a shelter n if ANYONE(staff or volunteer) ever acted this way, they would be reprimanded.
I am also EXTREMELY disappointed in this so called nonprofit. Selling, their words not mine, kittens from a feral colony, claiming they are Siamese and charging 300.00 is not only a rip off but unethical. Once you start asking questions the back pedaling starts and you get some "corrections" and excuses. Will not budge on the price though.
I get why they need this, cuz there were so many staff just standing around, salaries must be thru the roof.
I have financially supported this place but that's stops now and will tell everyone I know.

I have been volunteering at Cat Depot for over five years, since I attended the Grand Opening of their new facility, I was amazed when I first saw the shelter. Everything about it is first class, including the founders, staff and volunteers. I adopted one of my two cats from Cat Depot!

The Cat Depot is what every animal organizations should strive to be. It is a fun place that provides much needed care , adoption services, and education. Volunteering, or just visiting, provides a great opportunity to socialize with the cats and assist them on their road to finding forever homes. A very worth cause that should not be missed.

Cat Depot is the "Cat's Whiskers" of adoption centers. The cats are loved and cherished by staff and volunteers and visitors. It is such a happy place that you can't leave without a smile on your face.

I have been a volunteer at Cat Depot for over 5 years. Everyday there is a new adventure with the cats. Not only do I love them all, but they all love me back (some in their own way, but that's OK)! I laugh at their antics and their purring and I always am looking for new ways to play with them. I have been a foster mother (with and without Momma cat) and adopted 3 sibling kittens. Whenever I get just a little bored I head over to Cat Depot for laughs and laughs. Being open 7 days a week is just great! And now, sometimes I feel as though I live there!

Come visit the Cat Depot and you will see for yourself why this is a special place. The facility is so cat friendly and the staff and volunteers are so warm and caring that even if a cat were never adopted this would be a great place to live out its life.

In working with Cat Depot as both an advisor and a volunteer, I have seen first hand the incredible service and care that is not only given to the cats in the shelter, but to the staff, volunteers and community. Their adoption facility, education, and continued efforts to control the feline population in the community are just a few of the finer points of the organization. I have adopted two cats from them and have an outstanding experience both times.

Cat Depot continually exceeds expectations as a no kill cat shelter. Their outreach to the community, education of the public and dedication to healthy cats, happy homes and continued good work, all with a joyful attitude, abounds.
