I first heard of 'For The Love Of Cats' from a family member who is a volunteer. They made room for a kitten I had found. They got it adopted in 6 days. I have since come to know them and see how dedicated they are to helping all the cats that they can. I know I can go to Jim when ever I have a question and he even helped me pick out a carrier for a cat that I will be taking to CT for my son. Jim helps at the Humane Society and has been able to place many Senior cats into homes by showing them at Pet Smart on the weekends. These are cats that may never be seen if they weren't in the store. Jan and Jim are very dedicated to placing all the cats in GOOD homes. They will not place a cat into any home just to get rid of it. The word that defines them best is trustworthy. Mary A

I was introduced to Jan & Jim by a friend at work. I've adopted 3 kitties from them and on the 2nd day one went missing - - Jim walked me thru what to do and how to help get her back home. Turns out that she was under the bedspread sleeping, but the help that Jim offered was so special. Jan helped me thru fostering a kitty until she was adopted by a family on vacation from MA. These two are the best and what they do to help all the kitties is just Wonderful!!!

We have known Jim and Jan Rich for several years. During that time we have never seen such dedication to the care of feline and abandoned cats. At any hour of the day and night, they may be rescuing an abandoned litter, trapping cats that need to be neutered as well as receive medical attention - all at their time an expense. Their efforts are not simply to adopt cats and go on to the next situation. They are dedicated to make sure that each adoption works out well; they work with many families to optimize their relationship with the new family member(s). We have adopted five of their kittens, all in excellent health, micro chipped and wonderful additions to our family. We, like so many other families, are proud to know them and fully support their commitment to keeping the feline population in check and making it possible for so many people to bring a new furry critter into their lives.

The only change that I would make is to provide them with all of the volunteer support they needs to advance their goals across as large of a geographic area as possible.

I used to volunteer at For the Love of Cats a few years ago and have always admired how much love and dedication Jim and Jan Rich have given to homless and abandoned cats and kittens. They have given their lives to take care of and find loving homes for these adorable creatures. So, there was no question where to go after my amazing cat passed to find more feline friends a loving home. I only had one cat when she passed and it took some time to call them. We went to the shelter and two kittens picked my daughter and I out! I love that they adopt them out in pairs. Even though they weren't actaul siblings, they are if that makes sense! They are the two best cats in the universe and I can only praise my grateful to Jim and Jan and what they do! Bless them always!!!

I wish there were additional words in the dictionary to describe what an amazing place For the Love of Cats is. It is just the best temporary home abandon cats and kittens could have until they find a permanent family. There are also not adequate words to describe how Jim, Jan and Linda spare no amount of love, time, expense and just downright hard work, to ensure our precious kittens and cats find the right "fit" for a new home. I cannot say enough good things about this shelter. It is just the very best.

I adopted a sweet little 5 month girl from the shelter to keep my five year old cat (another shelter cat). She was born with a club foot and was the runt of the litter. Volunteers at the fed her many times a day to make sure she would grow strong and healthy. She is now an absolute joy.

If there was ever two people where there will be a special place in Heaven waiting it will be for Jan and Jim Rich. They are two of the most outstanding people I have ever known. Their dedication to the welfare of cats is remarkable and their shelter is one of a kind. They don't just take in a cat but they make sure it's medical and dental needs are taken care of before adoption and they keep track of the ones they adopt out and will take them back if they can no longer be cared for. We adopted an older cat from them and it has been a wonderful experience. Not only did we get a precious little "furball" to love but we have experienced how exceptional Jan and Jim are. Due to medical problems I have been unable to clip Kookie's nails so Jan and Jim come every couple of months and do it for me. Jim also took her to the hospital for dental care and they took care of her at their home until the next day so I didn't have to have the worry since I was not well yet. For that I will be forever grateful. This is just one example of their devotion to cats and the type of shelter they have. Awesome!!

This is a fantastic no -kill shelter for cats and kittens that goes way beyond what you could expect.
I manage a small 19 room inn and we fed and care for 4 once-stray cats. A 5th showed up one day, and I started feeding him, too. He came everyday but I started to notice there was something
wrong with his eyes- but he generally kept his head down so I couldn't really see what was wrong.
I called For Love of Cats and they came right over and humanely trapped him and brought him back to the shelter. It turned out that he was about 15 years old and his eyelashes had turned into his eyes and were scraping his corneas- it was very painful. I know our local humane society or Domestic Animal services would have put this beautiful sweet cat down immediately. But Jan and Jim rich spent a small fortune having his eyes operated on so he was no longer in pain, and then taking care of his abscessed tooth, and treating his overactive thyroid. They didn't expect anyone would adopt a 15 year-old cat so they decided to make him the official shelter cat and let him live out his remaining years in comfort and safety. As things turned out, one of their volunteers fell in love with him and adopted him. This shelter will do nearly anything and everything possible to help the cats and kittens on our island. I cannot say enough about them!

Please see my review above. But in addition to that, this non-profit has single-handedly spayed/neutered just about every stray or feral cat on the island, tested them for feline AIDS and Leukemia and gave them rabies shots and medical treatment and if they were feral and unadoptable, they returned them to where they were living and made sure someone fed them regualrly from then on.

We have expanded our family with 2 cats from TLOC, Senge and Calie, and couldn't be more impressed with this group. Both of the cats had been dumped or returned, each had been thru the "system" multiple times. Due to the remarkable people in this group, both still retained their spirits and ability to trust. Jim and Jan have always gone well beyond what anyone could ever expect, even calling from their vacation cruise, when we needed help with a cat health issue. They never stop checking on the cat kids, and even provide a wonderful cat manicure, at the adoption center in the Naples Petsmart. They also provide a great sounding board for the nervious (crazed) new/old pet parent, for all those endless questions.

When at PetSmart one day, unbeknown to me, my husband fell in love with an old cat. We learned the Tom had been abandoned and on his own for about a year until a volunteer from For The Love of Cats Inc. managed to capture him. It wasn't until several days later after finally learning of my husband's dispondancy that he REALLY wanted that old cat whose ears were curled like boxer's. Have recently moved to Naples we wanted to be more settled before adopting a "kitten." However, when we inquired further about him Jan and Jim told us of his visible sores, problematic eye which needed surgery and lack of sufficient nourishment when they acquired him. He was neutered, had eye surgery and prepared for adoption when we first saw him. We have had Mr. Mann for almost a year and he is the most wonderful cat I have ever owned. He is intelligent critter, minds when told no hopping on counters, beds, chairs and the like made friends with our, also adopted dog and of course "rules" in his polite way. If it wasn't for the kindness, caring and dedication of Jan and Jim this cat would not have survived. They will go out of their way to help no matter what small "problem" one might have. And, having seen their facility it is by far much better than those I have seen in Vet's. It is CLEAN, light, airy and not crowded. Their combined dedication is outstanding. There should be more people in this world like them!!!!

***** Five stars
Our two wonderful cats, Charley & Henry, (litter mates) were adopted from For the Love of Cats. They were really well cared for as kittens and we give Jan and Rich all the credit for that. It is truly a caring shelter. Charley and Henry are 4 yrs. old now, healthy,
affectionate, marvelous parts of our family.
