Amazing volunteers that run this rescue. Not only did I adopt 2 beautiful Russian Blue kitties but they helped reunite an injured kitty, my daughter found, with its owner. They made sure the kitty got the help and treatment it needed. They are an amazing group of volunteers.

CATS CAN is awesome! One day, my Mom, sister, and I went to our local pet store for some supplies. Of course we had to look at the cats that were up for adoption! There was a 3 year old black, female cat that was sitting in the back of her cage and her name was Bynx. We love the movie Hocus Pocus with the black cat named Bynx so we were OMG that's so sweet! Turns out Bynx hadn't been adopted in 4 months and since it was Black Friday, she was free! My Mom got all teary that Bynx hadn't been adopted yet, but with 2 cats, 2 birds, and fish we didn't need another pet. We went our way to get the items we needed and next thing you know, my Mom is filling out the paperwork to adopt Bynx! We didn't even know anything about her personality because we didn't have any interaction with her. The volunteer was super nice and gave us all the info we needed, including the # of the woman who fostered Bynx. We found out Bynx was picked up on the street by animal services and was rescued by that volunteer 2 days before she was to be put down! She's such a good, sweet girl and we love her dearly! She was a little shy and didn't like our boy cats for quite some time. She did have a fondness of being near us at all times though! She's so well behaved and we call her 'Bynxie Princess" because she's spoiled and rules the roost! We were SO very pleased with CATS CAN and my sister and I promote and recommend then all the time on social media. They're a really great organization and the folks that volunteer are wonderful!

Last year I saw that there was a litter of kittens and a mamma cat living under a dumpster. I wanted to help them, but was unsure of what to do after I trapped them. So I started calling everyone and anyone looking for help.

No one would help me. Not one organizarion either had room or wanted to deal with me.

Then I called someone from cats-can and she was so kind and helped me find homes for the kittens, absolutely wonderful loving homes, and a barn home for mommy and daddy kitty.

Ever since they helped me I have been volunteering for them. I have seen so much kindness pour from these people while helping as many people and cats from the community as they possibly can. Keep in mind that everyone is a volunteer that everyone also has a day job and then they juggle cat rescue. It's pretty amazing actually.

I think there have been over 400 adoptions so far this year. Over 400 homeless cats not have homes.

I've been volunteering with cats-can for 13 years. We have saved thousands of lives during that time, and we have helped many, many people get their cats spayed or neutered through our sister organization, SpayNSave. We are a small organization, but we all have big hearts. I'm proud to be a member of this organization and plan to continue to volunteer for as long as I am able.

They sold me a kitten approximately six months old. He died 3 months later - FIV, a highly contagious fatal disease. He never even saw his first birthday. He never had a chance. I don't recommend this organization to anyone. In fact, I'd say "turn and run the other way."

I began working with CATS-CAN, Inc. approximately 8 years ago. At that time, I had a deep desire to combine my love for animals and make a difference in my local community. Initially, I provided fostering care to moms and their babies until all were ready for adoption. Gradually, after learning more about the challenges facing our community; I became more involved in many other areas. This included: volunteering at weekly adoption events, transporting animals, developing marketing materials, fundraising, tracking data, following up on adoptions and assisting at monthly spay/neuter clinics.

Were it not for the leadership of this organization and the passion that the group shares, I might not have been so driven to assist. Every single one of the volunteers and board members has a drive to make a difference and stop the overpopulation problem facing us today. It was with this in mind that CATS-CAN branched out from adoption services to begin the journey to open a high quality, low cost spay/neuter clinic. I’m proud to be a part of this initiative and look forward to the day this becomes a reality.
