We adopted our beautiful cats Sadie from For the Love of Cats. The organization was very professional and is a great service to our community finding homes for abandoned or unwanted cats and kittens.(Please note all fields are not populating on this form: Will you volunteer... and How much of an impact...)

Mr. Mann, formerally owned by Jan and Jim "For the Love of Cats Inc." decided one day we were the ones he wanted to live with. We saw him one day while at Pets Smart, and unbeknown to me, my husband fell in love with him. So for three days my husband had a long face and wouldn't tell me what was wrong. By the fourth day I had had it and demanded he tell me. Well it seems he thought old Mr. Mann (then known to Jan and Jim as Fletcher Christian-first mate on The Bounty) since he was so banged up from being on his own for one year my husband likened him to what he would be if left on his own. Jan and Jim took this old bedraggled cat into their care, fixed his sores, vaccinated, neutered, etc. him. Their continued care for newly born to the oldest is to be commended. They treat all equally. Medicine, food, plenty of TLC, super clean quarters while waiting to be adopted. Jan and Jim, et al are a caring, giving, compassionate, fair organization although I would rather liken to a family fully dedicated to cats of all ages, sizes and kind. Mr. Mann has been with us now for 1 1/2yrs.

For the love of cats is the finest organization we know. Jan and Jim Rich are two of the nicest, honest and most genuine people you will ever meet. This is not just a job to them, it's their calling and their mission. You only have to spend 5 minutes with them to see the kindness and love that radiates from them. They love and care for these animals 7 days a week 24 hrs a day. We are so happy to donate to them and know our money is being put to good use!

Jan and Jim Rich are two of the finest people you could meet. I don't know them well, but instantly could see how committed they are to their mission and the beautiful animals whose lives they change on a daily basis. You can see their compassion for these animals that they so unselfishly care for 24/7. We need more caring people like them in this world. They are making a great difference in this community. They are so appreciative of any help we have ever given them. My husband and I feel so good when we make a donation knowing that it will be spent helping the kitties. These people are truly a blessing and we love being able to help with their mission. If you are a position to help this organization PLEASE DO SO. You won't be sorry.

For The Love Of Cats is what all rescue organizations should strive to be. They do so much to help homeless cats in our community. Not only taking care of the ones in their shelter, but also caring for ferel cat communities. Cats in general don't get the overall love and appreciation that they deserve. They are sometimes wrongly overlooked as being the wonderful, loving, and smart pets that they are. This organization has done so much to change this incorrect perception of these wonderful animals. I feel good knowing that every cent donated to For The Love Of Cats is appreciated and used to it's full potential to take care of these precious cats. We need more people like this in the world, people that genuinely love and want to help cats. God Bless Jan and Jim Rich and their entire mission...and of course all of those beautiful animals that they take such good care of!!!!

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.

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.

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

Three years ago we lost our beautiful Boo. A hero, faithful friend, caregiver when ill and constant companion. We just stopped by for Love of Cats to glance. Let me rephrase. I made my husband go by as his heart was still completely broke. You see Boo sat with my husband on the weekends in a sand chair and had breakfast with him every weekend watching the sun come up; enjoyed football games with him and slept with us. He was adamant about not having any more cats. He looked away while I was looking at the kittens. I choose two brothers. By evening my husband had both on his chest having them purring loud and clear. We still think of Boo every day but with Barnstable and Frederick we have lots of fun and laughter is abundant. Thank you to everyone at For The Love of Cats. You are truly remarkable.

For The Love of Cats is a 24 by 7 dedicated volunteer no kill shelter. We have adopted two wonderful cats from Love of Cats. But, more than that they are constantly keeping strays fed and healthy to go to loving homes. Feral cats are spayed, neutered, fed and have shelters in the wild and SWFL is wild to many predators. One weekend I found two very unkept, fur balled, flea infested and starving beautiful Persian cats. Within hours The Love of Cats had them to the vets and taken care of health wise. Within a few weeks these cats were healthy and were adopted. This is the most efficient and well run organization I have seen. Again, more importantly the care given to the animals as well as the volunteers is full of love and compassion. Corky Miller

Jan and Jim Rich, and all the volunteers extend themselves far beyond 150%. Recently, I discovered a badly matted, unkempt Persian cat. My husband I transported the cat to a local vet. We called a volunteer at The Love Cats who put me in touch with Jim Rich who went directly to the vet's office to assess the cat and do more research. This type of immediate, knowledgable on-the-spot caring and positive attitudeis what For the Love of Cats is all about from the entire team.

My wife and I were feeding a colony of feral cats on our own for years without even knowing about "For The Love of Cats". A volunteer with the rescue shelter came by one afternoon and asked about a specific cat she saw in our driveway. She mentioned the shelter to us while listening all about the cats we'd been feeding. She came back with cat food a few days later and told us about the shelter and introduced us to some of the other nice people who volunteer there. Soon we were getting our food from the shelter to feed our colony and as new cats would show up they would come and get them and take them to the vet for their shots and to be neutered. They would home some of the cats but those that couldn't be homed they would bring back and turn loose right where they had picked them up from. All of those cats are still with us and eat here daily. Seeing the shelter for the first time was mind blowing after having gone to other shelters. We were completely impressed with the cleanliness and professionalism there.

They provide the Science Diet cat food so that we can continue feeding our colony of feral cats. They make themselves available always for any emergency involving any cats and are very quick to respond.

The shelter for the love of cats is truly one of its kind. The large cat
cages, you might want to call them cat condo's, are cleaned 3 times a day with special cleaning agents by volunteers. The airconditioned large environment where cats may play together with very clean and updated toys,
poles, catscratcher etc. etc. Volunteers
knit special blankets the keep the new borns warm. If the cats need
special care it is noted on a bulleting board in which order of importance the cats should received it done by a license vetenarian and volunteers. The love that is given to all cats is remarkable with
no exception. The cats are played with and some are walked with. Each cat is held and loved each and every day.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
