SHADOW CATS RESCUE
April 8, 2013

Shadow Cats is one of those rare circumstances where several elements all came together to create something unique and wonderful. Their sanctuary provides lifetime care to cats with serious health and behavioral issues, and is one of a very few places caring for cats with feline leukemia. The sanctuary is a peaceful, home-like environment for the cats who live there. The volunteers are a diverse group of dedicated people united in their love of cats - many have been coming for years and know all 80+ cats as well as their own. The roots of Shadow Cats began in trapping and TNR, and there are trappers and feral colony feeders who have been caring for feral cats for many years. Shadow Cats has the feel of a big family - when I began volunteering five years ago I expected to get to know the cats, but also found a wonderful community of people who have become my friends.

SHADOW CATS RESCUE
April 8, 2010

Shadow Cats is a wonderful group of dedicated people who are working to improve the lives of community cats in Central Texas. They are very active in TNR - Trap, Neuter, Return - and also operate a sanctuary for rescued cats with medical problems, behavioral issues, and other special needs. I volunteer at the sanctuary helping to provide daily care for the cats there. It's a unique place - since they focus on mostly unadoptable cats, it offers the chance to get to really know the cats and bond with them over a long period. I've never seen any other place that truly provides such a loving, home-like environment to so many special cats. And Shadow Cats is one of a very few places that rescues and provides a home to feline leukemia cats.
