I tried for months to trap a beautiful beige mixed Siamese cat we called Big Boy at our condo. He was the father of many litters across the street at the commercial mall and no one had been able to catch him. Many kittens were rescued and the mother spayed. Fed him every morning but could not get him to go in the trap day after day. A wonderful man from Love of Cats helped me get him with a simple drop trap. We sat in the van, and Big Boy came along as usual. In 5 minutes we had him in the trap. We ran over to secure the trap. He was then neutered and released. I felt really good about helping Big Boy and doing something to help the feral cat population - there because of irresponsible cat owners.

For the Love of Cats is terrific. They go above and beyond to make sure both the cat and the adopter have a great experience. They truly believe in what they are doing. I would recommend them to anyone.They have done an outstanding job rescuing and controlling population in the Naples-Marco Island area.

For The Love of Cats cares about the animals. They do everything within their means to make sure that all cats have a safe, healthy and loving home. They always have the cats best interest first and foremost, and have dedicated their lives to caring for cats. They have always been so helpful to us by giving us their advice and suggestions to help our cats when needed. We can't thank them enough for all of the help and support they have given us over the years.

I adopted two kitties three years ago and loved the entire experience working with For the Love of Cats. The operation is so professional and well run and without exception, from the very first moment, every cat that comes through their doors is loved and cared for. I then had a very young stray tabby that came to my house looking for food. She was tiny and hungry and so starved for attention, after about a month, she came right up to me . It was then I saw she had kittens on her! I contacted For the Love of Cats, who brought several volunteers to track her back to her kittens and then worked for almost three days to get all four of the kittens out from under a shed. They made sure all were healthy and we adopted the mother (after all, she found us!) and one of her kittens. The other three were quickly adopted as well. I tell my friends that once I retire, they'll be able to find me at the shelter and I will come home every night, happy and loaded with cat hair! This is truly a top notch nonprofit organization and worthy of every kudo and accolade available.

I was called to go & get a kitten that was tossed out of a moving car. Kitten was in poor condition ~ I took kitten to my local vet for medical treatment. That's where I met Jan from For the Love of Cats. She took this kitten to her facility and nursed kitty back to health and found a FOREVER home for this teeny helpless kitten ! Jim & Jan are to be praised for their dedication to the health, well-being and devotion to kittens and cats. Andrea Utter Naples, FL

For The Love of Cats Inc, Marco Island was responsible for helping me find my cat. My beloved Himalayan escaped thru an open lanai door. We searched for days. We contacted all local authorities, shelters, and For the Love of Cats. Weeks passed. We were convinced we would never see Joey again. One day I received a call that a member of For Love of Cats found a cat that looked like our boy. I had a few false alarms from other agencies, individuals, etc. These looked like but never were our Joey. I raced over to their beautiful facility and to my amazement, they had my Joey. I am so grateful. Their networking and valiant efforts saved yet another life.

On behalf of our new "family members", Mellow and Snoopy, a huge thank you for the work that you do. The time, love and caring that is given to the rescued cats and kittens is unsurpassed by none. We have not seen this kind of dedication by 2 individuals ever. They are so involved and genuinely care about the work that they are doing. You can definitely see that their work is a work of love. Thank you from Mellow, Snoopy and big sister Fizzles!! (Mom & Dad also)

Jan and Jim are two of the nicest people I have ever met! I moved to Florida this year after tragically losing my 5 year old Siamese to renal failure. Jan and Jim were so supportive and helpful in finding the perfect new friend for me!
