I purchased 2 kittens from For The Love Of Cats. Jim was very helpful in helping me decide what to do because I was going to only get 1 kitten as a companion for my older cat. They were running a buy one get one free deal so I got 2 beautiful kittens that my husband and I love dearly.

I must state first as I have in the past that this organization is one of the most well run I have ever encountered. Jan and Jim and their volunteers keep a consistent balance of efficiency and compassion in their endeavors. Once more they helped with a starving and sickly white cat who showed up in my yard... With their help this poor boy turned into an absolutely beautiful, regal, soft spoken kitty ready for a home. I run into folks all over our area who can't say enough good about what they are doing to help unfortunate cats in need.

Jan and JIm Rich are wonderful folks. They helped us trap, spay and neuter 2 feral cats who live in our neighborhood. My husband experienced a traumatic brain injury while coaching high school hockey and we had a series of dramatic and unexpected changes in our lives at the time. . These 2 cats have now lived together in our yard and eat good food and drink clean water on our porch (for over 2 years). They cannot be socialized to live in a dwelling but they do live happily outside and one lets us pet his head... Another time I found a litter of feral kittens in the thick brush in our side yard. We have many natural predators in our area and I captured the kittens , thanks again to Jan and Jim lending me a trap, AND they took the time to come out and take the kittens and care for them in their facility.. what more can be said.. they are just nice and very efficient at what they do.. St Francis of Assisi would be proud of them!!

The feral kittens I finally had success in capturing were cared for and adopted out by "FOR THE LOVE OF CATS".

A month after our cat passed away I visited For The Love Of Cats and after talking with Jan and Jim and interacting with the cats I chose Misti. She was about a year old and was abandoned. They were very patient with me and explained the personality of each cat. Misti was very nervous and afraid but now she is calm and loving and we do not know what we would do without her. She is playful and fun. She keeps us young. Jan and Jim cared for her after volunteers feeding feral cats noticed how friendly she was and they brought her to The Love Of Cats just for us to adopt.
We are blessed to have her. Thank God for Jan and Jim and all the volunteers. John and Jackie Gamble

Marco Islands' For the Love of Cats is an inspiring example of what a committed group can achieve. Under the direction of Jan and Jim Rich, their dedicated volunteers provide a delightful facility for the homeless and stray cats and kittens on Marco Island and in the surrounding communities. Under their loving care, hundreds of lost, sick and abandoned kitties are being restored to health and placed in permament homes every year. I urge you to support this organization.

I stop by and see Jim and Jan in Petsmart when I am shopping for my 3 rescue cats. I have watched them interact with cats and people. I know that they are dedicated to finding the best & safest homes possible for their kittens and cats. There is no price tag for the amount of TLC that they give to each cat and they time that they spend nurturing the kittens and soothing the older cats. I know that it takes money - lots of money - for care and medical attention of these cats. I have a choice where I can donate. I know that my donation goes to these rescue cat and kittens, not advertising. I can see that Jim and Jan make a difference, I want to help them continue to be successful in doing what they do best - rescue cats and kittens and find wonderful homes for them.

Give them more money to spend to meet their needs. The word of mouth advertising of Love of Cats is so positive in the Naples/Marco Island area - I know that they love what they do and from the staff that I have met, everyone is dedicated to saving feline lives and finding good homes.

I met Jan and Rich about 3 yrs ago while vacationing in Florida. The were gracious enough to give me a tour of their facility. I am from Cape Cod , MA. and currently a volunteer and am on the board for People for Cats. We are in the process of building a new shelter and I wanted to learn more about the do's and don'ts of running a shelter. From type of cages to the kind of disenfectant to use has been a great help to us. All the hard work these two wonderful people do " all for the love of cats" is a labor of love. Keep up the good work Jan and Rich.

We adopted Oliver last year from Jan and Rich. They treated him for a very advanced case of ringworm for 6 months. Any other shelter would have put him down. That would have been such a loss as Oliver is such a loving , funny, full of life, and beautiful cat. Their dedication and love for animals surpasses anyone. When we first adopted Oliver we called them at 1 am because we thought Oliver was sick. I am sure we woke them up but they walked us through. It turns out Oliver was exhaused. He had been in a cage for 6 months and now had the run of the house.

We just love him so much. We are grateful to Jan ,Rich, and Elaine. Without them Oliver wouldn't be with us.

Jan and Jim are dedicated to the rescue of unwanted cats and kittens. We adopted 3 feral kittens who stumbled into our yard one day and Jan and Jim loaned us traps to catch them and gave us valuable advice on how to domesticate them. Isabella, Marco and Franco are now 3 years old and rule the roost. Every weekend, Jan and Jim from For the Love of Cats bring kittens and cats available for adoption to a neighborhood pet supply store and hope to encourage the people shopping to take home one of their jewels. Everyone is always exclaiming how cute the kittens are, but Jim has a way of showing the talents and advantages of those who are no longer kittens, especially for those who aren't at home all day. Jan and Jim have dedicated themselves to these homeless kittens and cats. For the Love of Cats is a wonderful charity that I am proud to donate to as often as I can.

Jan and Jim are the greatest. We adopted two sisters, Puff and Emma from them about four years ago. They have helped us in clipping their nails when they were very little, to solving a flea problem that happened after we took them to the vets for their shots.They are so pleasant to everyone that comes in, and takes really good care of the kittens and older cats. Thank goodness we have someone like them in our county to help save our helpless little ones. Thanks Jan and Jim for a job well done/ Peg and Paul, Puff and Emma
