I have been volunteering with Cat Rangers for over a year and have the utmost respect and gratitude for this amazing group. Not only do they save hundreds of lives a year, but the cats get the best care and lots of TLC while waiting to find their forever home. They are a cage free shelter and you can tell the cats are very happy there until they get adopted.

This is a wonderful organization that saves the lives of homeless cats. The shelter that the cats reside in is not a shelter but a house. When you walk in the door, you feel like you are at home. It's decorated nicely, it smells clean and cats are comfortable and well cared for. This is a wonderful organization and I highly recommend them.

Had yet another amazing experience at the Center yesterday. If you are currently looking for a quality adoption facility - go visit Sparrow and Rick to find your fur-ever baby. I am not only an adopter, but a foster now to help with their growing family of needy cats and kitties.
Personally, I just lost one of my rescues due to a uterine rupture. In my moment of despair and sorrow - they opened their ears and shoulder to me in my time of need. Thank you again for everything you do for all of us - furry or not! :)

Catrangers is a professionally run organization and is well managed through its operations manager and her supporting team. They are a non kill shelter and they make sure all cats are well looked after. They provide a relaxed atmosphere for the cats in an open environment. I would highly recommend anyone who is looking to adopt a cat or kitten to go and visit and see for themselves what a great facility this is.

I have been volunteering at Cat Rangers for 1 & 1/2 years now and have thoroughly enjoyed my experience there. The founders truly love cats and kitties and have given me many opportunities to serve. The cats are well cared for both medically and relationally. When a car is adopted they don't go home right away. The cat is delivered by a staff person or volunteer to assess that the cat's future home is appropriate. The fact that they go the extra mile in this area told me how much they care and how committed they are to the animals. I have enjoyed getting to know many people in the cat rescue field, have learned much (and keep learning!) and plan to continue volunteering at this unique and wonderful shelter.

Both of our cats died in the last two years and we were missing having cats but not in the position to have a cat in our home for various reasons. We heard about This shelter and decided to volunteer. They are a wonderful no kill and no cage shelter! They are in touch with various kill shelters and rescue cats before they are euthanized. It is such a great environment because the cats are not kept on shelves or in cages but have an entire house to roam free in. They also find foster homes for cats who have special needs until they can be adopted. They do such a great job of helping cats that arrive with health issues and of finding their cats good furever homes!

Hands down one of the best places for kitties I have ever seen. Staff really makes you feel at home too. There are so many beautiful cats just waiting for that special someone.

This place is an awesome rescue and resource for cat behavior. Sparrow and her staff (including volunteers) do a tremendous job with rescuing felines, making them adoptable, educating people and giving the felines a safe haven to live until adopted. They also do work with other rescues and feral cat placement.

You need to stop by and meet Sparrow, Janice, Karen, Bonnie, Scott, Michael, Rick and the others there to truly experience how great this place is.

Catrangers is an amazing organization that helps countless animals in dire situations. The love and compassion they give to each rescue is unsurpassed. We moved from the Buford area to Nashville and continue to follow and donate praying each time others find themselves able to donate as well. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your incredible selfless work!!!!

Cat rangers is a wonderful rescue. They handle rescue responsibly and don't take more than they can handle. They have a cool house set up where cats can live together until they are adopted. This way, the rescue truly understands the personalities and can put the right cat with their person. And when you go to adopt, you can play with the cats and get to know them, not just look at them through a cage door. It is an inspiring environment. The team at cat rangers makes sure the animals are vetted properly and also makes sure the adopters are checked out thoroughly. They are breaking the mold and showing how social kitties can be. As a mom to six cats, I've never seen a better environment for cats. I will adopt all my future cats through cat rangers!
