This cat sanctuary provides food, shelter, medical care and TLC to all cats - homeless, sick, feral, and FIV positive. They will positively do anything they can to make the lives of cats better. Amazing in every way!

I volunteered her for almost two years. I adopted one of my kitties here. This organization is an amazing shelter with amazing people. The love they have for the cats is amazing. This isn't just another place to find a cat to bring home. The cats who are here have been honestly cared for. No challenge is just given up on. Purrfect Pals has both FELV and FIV positive cats, who would have been put down in a normal shelter. They aren't the cats people adopt. They aren't the ones people drop a hundred dollers on to take home. Yet, Purrfect Pals keeps them, spending money to make them comfortable and happy as long as they are there.
If you're ever in the area, stop by and see. Ask the volunteers who spend their days there about the cats. I bet you that each volunteer has their special favorites in that shelter, and can tell you everything about that cat.
It's love that keeps us volunteering and love that helps those cats find the perfect home.

The Great!

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

My own kitty was a rescue from them. She had been terrorized as a kitten by cruel owners and seperated from her brother at a very tender age. She was tiny and scared when we brought her home, and now she is a giant ball of love. And occasionally, we still get a letter from the adoption councler at purrfect pals. Because she remembers our kitty and wants to know how it goes. Because she card.

Ways to make it better...

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

Make more room for cats. The shelter is too small and there are too many cats who need their love. Also, I think it would be nice to have more volunteers. Neither of things the shelter themselves can do, lacking both funds and hands, but thats the only thing wrong with them.

I first have to tell you that no one asked me to write this review.
My family and I recently relocated to Arlington, WA. I wanted my 10 year old children to experience the joys of long term volunteering so I signed us up to feed shelter cats one day a week. We signed up with Purrfect Pals,
the oldest no-kill cat shelter in the area. The more I have gotten to know Purrfect Pals, the more highly I think of them. This organization has been around, thanks to the auspices of one woman, since 1988 and over 27 thousand cats have been adopted. No cat, whether adoptable or not, is unwanted. All all cared for and every adoption is celebrated. What more can I say about an organization that holds a birthday party (with smelly wet cat food birthday cakes) for their leukemia cats each year?
Please support this organization and their hard work. If you can't adopt a cat, please virtually adopt one. Send money in for a cat that can't be adopted and know that you are helping, one animal at a time. If you'd like to learn more, please check out their website at www.purrfectpals.org.
Thanks for reading,
Claire

the experience of my children. We have volunteered in the past for single time events and I wanted them to learn the joy of long term volunteering. I have celebrated the adoption of a single cat, mourned the loss of another and reveled in unabashed love from cats who didn't have a chance.

Ways to make it better...

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

have the money to build more buildings and hire on more wonderful staff.
