Shadowcats is a wonderful organization constantly caring for cats with special needs and rescuing them from high kill shelters and the streets. They share information on tnr and the cats they care for, find furreverr homes for those that they can adopt out and more, they share information on other rescue organizations to help them get what they need to care for those rescue cats as well. Very very helpful hand and caring souls and individuals each one of them at shadow cats

I've been a fan of this organization for about a little over 2 yrs when somehow I stumbled onto their Facebook page. I fell in love with the way the care for their kitties and the constant updates and posts that kept making me feel I am also a part of their community. Because of that, I have sponsored 2 cats and have sent a few donated items to them happily.

They truly care for their furry ones and it shows in the way the share info and keep us all in close contact with their activities, updates on kitties, and even heart breaking news when they crossed over and passed...keep up the wonderful work and thank you to everyone there!!

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

Maybe communicate better when donations arrive at the sanctuary so that we know things arrive ok.

Shadow Cats provides a service to cats who without them would have no chance at life. They go above and beyond for EVERY animal in their care and reach out to help many more. Their dedication and care to any animal who comes their way is amazing.

The care for the cats here is beyond normal. They show true care for all of the cats and kittens. I learned all about Shadow Cats Rescue from there Facebook page and couldn't believe how much tender loving care is put into their jobs.

I am a "rescue fanatic" in Tennessee, have a small TNR/ lost kitty rescue group with my friend and through my facebook links I found your site. From all the many many groups I follow, you have taken me off my feet by all your loving posts, the care you give them and the community work you do. You are absolutely tops! I am now your official fan, even if I am so far away. We all need to stick together to make our common goal - no more homeless pets!!

When I opened my business doors 3 years ago I did not know about Shadow cats. A customer told me she saw kittens and a mom playing across our parking lot in the flood control. Yep Mom and two adorable kittens. What do I do? Well she told me about Shadow cats. They helped guide me on TNR. I got both kittens in one trap after several attempts. One was social the other not so much. One of the volunteers worked with him but he was not having anything to do with this people thing. The volunteer made a kitty exchange at Shadow cats. She adopted one and they took in Sterling. Sterling lives in the outback with the others. He is happy and flourishing. Thanks to all of the volunteers that take care of him and many others. Keep up the Awesome work.

As I recall, I wrote a review about Shadow Cats a few years ago. I'm back to tell everyone that Shadow Cats remains just an outstanding organization. It's hard enough to run a good sanctuary for special needs pets, it's another thing to be a mentor and supporter to groups/individuals all across the country. It's another thing to lead the charge for changes in government policies. It's another thing to go to court every day during an animal abuse trial to make certain that there is Justice for Moody. The leaders/volunteers of Shadow Cats do all these things, and they continue to do them at an amazing level of excellence over the years. They are a model for what every public and private organization should be!

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

Give them more money ...

It's one thing to provide services, it's another thing to be a mentor to anyone/everyone who needs help. That's what sets Shadow Cats apart. You simply need to look at the explosive success of the Western Iowa Feral Cats Program to see the impact that Shadow Cats has. I, for one, learned about/became a great supporter of WIFCap because Shadow Cats let the word know about their launch. The generosity that everyone with Shadow Cats shares, their creativity in programming, their commitment to serve the real outcasts of society (e.g., FIV cats), and the skill they bring to the effort ... well, I am in awe!

I've been involved in rescue for several years now, and I know of the incredible work that Shadow Cats does in the community. What's most important is that the leaders of the group are always, always, always willing to share their expertise with others. Rescue is an art form. We have to learn by doing and through the experiences and guidance of others, we all grow and become more effective. So it isn't just what Shadow Cats does within the walls of the sanctuary or with the cats in its program, it's the priceless mentoring that makes it such an invaluable organization in the community. The ripple effect of that work, often unheralded, is what helps make all the rest of us better. So I bless Shadow Cats for the leadership, the support, and the patience they offer.

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

Recipient of much advice and support

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

Give them more financial resources! And space!

Shadow Cats is a phenomenal organization! They advocate for feral/community cats and take great care of the cats in their care. They use social networking to save cats outside their realm and educate the public.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The people that run this organization and their dedication for the care for and education about feral/community cats.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

INCREDIBLE!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Make the world a better place for all cats.
