At the end of last June my wife and I lost our Cat Cleo as a result of kidney failure one week before her eighteenth birthday. Needless to say we were pretty devastated. We agonized for at least a month about what we might do to fill the emptiness we were experiencing both emotionally and even in our daily lifestyle. Coincidentally, an article appeared in the "animal" section of our local newspaper about two unrelated "rescue" cats who had become inseparable when Jan decided to have them room together! Along with the article was a picture of these two which captured our attention. Within a week we made the decision that this beautiful couple needed us as much as we needed them and so they were adopted and we not looked back.

I should also indicate that we had been very aware of For The Love of Cats as a result of their extensive and incredibly effective work to mitigate a significant feral cat situation in our island community many years ago. We cannot say enough to capture the humane and professional expertise practiced by this organization, its devoted volunteers, and, of course, its principals.

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

Not so brash as to make any suggestions except to encourage more community support in the form of more volunteers, more contributions, and MOST important, more adoptions of these marvelous animals whose presence makes us better humans.

I met Jim and Jan while volunteering at the Humane Society in Naples. They are two of the most amazing people I have ever met and their mission is so honorable and heartfelt. They are truly dedicated to their cause and they go above and beyond to save homeless kitties. They often take some of the HS kitties to showcase them at Petsmart and I am always amazed how some of our longer term kitties are adopted through Jim and Jan. They have a passion and we in southwest Florida are grateful for these kind souls - they are responsible for saving the lives of so many cats and kittens and they deserve recognition for their tireless work on behalf of these felines.

I don't know of a more dedicated couple from my former home in Maine to our home in Florida than Jan and Jim Rich. They helped us with our senior cat which they directed in our direction and even to our feral cat Louie that we cared for over 8 years. They devote weekends to placing cats and kittens at a local pet store. While there are many fine organizations which we have donated to in the past we can see the results before oue eyes and this is something rare in this day and age. Harry & Pauline

There is NO WAY to describe the dedication of Jan and Jim Rich. You would have to see them and their dedication first hand to appreciate the daily love they give to kittens and to our 12 year old Leo whom we adopted. Five years ago I gave to a national organization for animals and found it was not being used for what I intended . I found my name had been given to 18 other groups asking for donations. When I met Jan and Jim and the loyal volunteers that worked for them , I knew that what little I could donate would be used wisely. Other groups could learn from their success.

We did not adopt thru for The Love of Cats but we received help in how to work with an older cat and a feral cat. This was of great help.

My niece is a volunteer at the cat shelter and she just beams with pride to be a part of it. I have visited on several occasions and I am so impressed with the dedication of the volunteers there. It is so clean and all of the kittens receive so much affection. These kittens are the friendliest I have ever seen. The kittens return lots of love to their future owners because of the care that they receive at this wonderful shelter .

I am so grateful to For the Love of Cats for taking in 2 abandoned kittens in January 2010 and bringing them to health. I was looking for 2 kitties to love in February 2010 and For the Love of Cats had just what I needed. Jim, Jan and their volunteers give their all to both felines and human beings. For the Love of Cats is THE BEST shelter.

Open up a branch in Naples so it would be closer to me and I could volunteer.

Jan and Jim truly care about cats and kittens and go above and beyond in taking care and providing homes and advice to those who have cats and kittens.

The cats always come first at the shelter which is one of the main reasons it is such a pleasure to volunteer at FOR THE LOVE OF CATS. The shelter is run in a professional manner. The shelter has done wonders for the cats on Marco Island and outlying areas.

Professionally run shelter with outstanding owners. They go way beyond what you would expect from owners that care for cats and have knowledgeable volunteers and make sure that volunteers understand the standards expected of them. They communicate with volunteers and cat owners to ensure that their concerns and needs are being addressed.

For the Love of Cats is a volunteer organization that saves the lives of many abandoned cats and places them in homes where they are loved and cared for - a very worthy cause. The volunteers are very dedicated and do an outstanding job on a continuing basis.

I have never met such dedicated and selfless people as Jan and Jim. The many cats rescued are all kept in an immaculate and well organized facility where they are placed according to their health and needs. So many volunteers see to the needs of each cat. Jan and Jim matched us up with a brother and sister 5 year old Persians. They are perfect for us and they have brought us so much joy. Even
our older cat Spanky enjoys their company!

The twins we brought home were rescued in order to keep them together and make sure they survived. For The Love of Cats is a no kill shelter so all cats are guaranteed a well cared for life. Jan & John are well known in the Naples area for all the good work they do promoting awareness. A wonderful couple doing wonderful work.

Having adopted several kitties from For the Love of Cats in the past I would give 10 stars if I could for this shelter. Jim & Jan Rich have dedicated much of their time developing & running this super clean facility alive with love and care with the help of wonderful selfless local volunteers. No question the Rich's are genuinely passionate about helping felines in need. This nonprofit shelter is top notch!
