I feel that this Sanctuary is a warm, caring, safe haven for cats waiting to find their forever homes. The cats live in rooms and are taken care of by the volunteers. The cats get the best possible care and a lot of love and attention. All the staff in this sanctuary are volunteers and there are plenty of volunteer opportunities including fostering cats, socializing cats, writing grant applications and of course the day to day care of the cats in the adoption center. There is also a thrift store which is also staffed by volunteers and donations of gently used items are always welcome. The cats that are available for adoption are at the adoption center while others are at foster homes. I volunteer at this sanctuary, I have fostered some of the cats and I have adopted one of the cats. I love this sanctuary because of its commitment to the well being of all the cats in it's care and to finding the cats the right forever homes.
