I have followed this wonderful nonprofit for years. Although I live in Oregon I give what I can to BCR in North Carolina because of the work they do. Wishing them more success in years to come!

Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary far exceeds expectations for a non-profit shelter. Because they take FIV and otherwise hard-to-place cats (blind, special needs) into their fold, they have harbored many wonderful little lives over the years. The director of BCR, Alana, is a champion at fund-raising and cat-awareness ideas to promote a basis for caring for these cats, finding foster homes and attention for their cause through social media. Although I Iive in Oregon and support many local shelters here, I fully support BCR in North Carolina in everything they do!

I can watch them for hours. They are doing such a great job. And job is the wrong word, they do everything with so much love. I'm happy to know, that these cats have the best possible home forever and that they still try to help so many other animals. THANK YOU, love You all there.

I love what you guys do! These beautiful kitties wouldn't be here if it weren't for the love and care you give them. If they could speak, one can only imagine the words of gratitude they would express. You are my favourite charity and my hat goes off to everything you do to give these babies the life they deserve.

I can say that I doubt there is another animal care facility out there that can match this place. They are by far 2nd to none.

These guys and gals really care about cats that most people want to euthanize and toss away like trash in a trash can. I've never visited, but heard it's great there. I've been following them for 4+ years and have not heard anything to the contrary. The reviews are consistently stellar!!!

Excellent group of individuals dedicated to helping cats who are unwanted to society. They go out of their way to show the world they are so lovable by sending out newsletters, frequent social media posts, etc.

Hi, BCR is an excellent facility and does great work. If it weren't for BCR, these cats would otherwise be euthanized.

This organization was started in 2005 as a way to shelter blind and FELV/FIV cats that were otherwise healthy, but deemed unadoptable by other shelters and would be euthanized. This is their forever home and they truly care about each and every cat. I am so impressed at the lengths they go to take care of these precious creatures. Each day they host Facebook live tours of the shelter - 12PM; 3PM; 6PM; 10PM. Each volunteer is so precious and has a genuine love of cats. Please donate to this shelter.

I have been following this wonderful place on Facebook for along time now and I'm so happy there's a place for these wonderful babies to live out their lives rather then being put to sleep just cause they are blind or have any other things they can't help. I haven't been to visit cause I can't drive but I hope to visit one day. Would love to see these wonderful place and the wonderful babies up close. I read what the other people who have visited said and it makes me wish I could go. I thank god for those wonderful people who volunteer there and the wonderful people who work there. God bless them all and for the person who founded this wonderful place I say god bless them and how glad I am that they did. I've bought things off of their wish list on amazon before and whenever I shop there they are my charity and I click and do the freebee quiz a lot. I do what I can since I don't have a lot of money and this is the only charity I do that for cause I believe in this place and think it's the best one out there. I have shared them to my friends and when they were up to win all that litter from fresh step I clicked and shared them and got a lot of my cat lover and owner friends on fb to do it to cause I know they go through a lot of liter and could use it and so happy they won that and any other contest they have ever won. I bought their calendar this year. I Really really want to visit someday. I won't travel far to visit many place but for this place I would. Thank you to all that work there and god bless you all.

I found BCR by accident. I was buying an item on eBay and there was an option to contribute to a charity. BCR was one of them. I was impressed that there was a rescue for the most vulnerable and needy of cats. I went to the website and was pleased that there were cameras in the rooms. You could see for yourself the love, attention and top notch care given to the cats. I became a monthly sponsor for a kitty named Lisa. Alana and the staff are great. This truly is a house made of love.

I have followed BCR for years, and I have been a volunteer, supporter, and board member as well. The charity is so transparent and open to the public, that it sets a standard for other 501c3s to follow. The facility is clean, the staff are well-trained and well-compensated, and the cats receive the best of care, food, and living conditions. I look forward to break from my busy routines to drive to visit a few times per year to stay and volunteer. It brings sanity to a world often marked by craziness.

I have been following Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary for 5 years now. My first visit was several years ago, I wanted to check the place out for myself. I was extremely surprised by how clean everything was and how AWESOME the cats were taking care of. I have volunteered at many places but never have I seen any place as wonderful as Blind Cat Rescue. Blind Cat Rescue quickly rose to the top of my charity list. I have been returning at least 2 times a year, for at least a week each time, since my 1st visit. I know how clean Blind Cat Rescue is cause I have helped clean from ceiling to floors each day I'm there. The owner, Alana Miller, makes sure the cats have everything they need. There is never a thing as not enough money to treat a cats illness. This charity sets the bar for how animals should be cared for and treated. I have never been so proud as to be associated with such a wonderful, loving and caring charity as Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary.

Blind Cat Rescue sets the Bar for cat care in my opinion. This shelter is cleaner then a Boot Camp Barrack. Sanitized and dirty stuff stripped daily and through out the day as needed.The cats get regular check-ups and if they start acting different, they get an additional check-ups. They get the BEST medical help available. Even if it means traveling from St. Pauls to Raleigh, NC to get treatment for that cat. This IS a forever home for them. No longer will they be bounced from house to house or shelter to shelter. They have a free, non-caged living environment with a outdoor patio attached each room. They get wet food several times a day and certain cats have special diets for their needs. Dry food always available for then to eat and/or snack on. They get treats, cat nip and have a TON of toys PLUS most rooms have a running wheel for extra fun and exercise. There are Tours of the building where you get to see the cats and learn their names and stories about them. They have a 24/7 cat cam to see the cats ANYTIME of day. A 24/7 chat room where you can get to know supporters and fans of Blind Cat Rescue. This also gives them the ability to give you advice, support when needed and friendship when lonely or in pain from a loss of a loved furbaby or human. They have "Chat & Boxes" where you can talk to the owner & staff while they open gifts and donated items from their "wish list". Each month, except December, they have "Open House" where you can come and interact with the cats. They have a "Guest House" for volunteers to stay at when you come to work/clean/feed. The staff are kind and loving souls that work VERY hard to make this such an exceptional place for the cats, visitors & supporters. Alana Miller is an "Angel" with an AWESOME head on her shoulders. Alana puts in 15+ hours a day, EVERY DAY, making sure everything gets done and is done properly to the highest of standards. There is no such thing as a HOLIDAY for the owner & staff due to fact that things need to be done every single day. Just cause it's a Holiday doesn't mean that the cats don't need to get their meds, wet food, dry food, clean linens, rooms sanitized and of course ATTENTION. I could really go on & on but I think you got the jest of just how wonderful this place is for the cats :)
