Nonprofit Overview

Mission: Our mission is to create a more humane and compassionate world one cat at a time. We rescue, care for, protect, and place cats for adoption in loving lifelong homes, and work to prevent abuse, neglect and cruelty to animals by educating the citizens of our community in the proper and humane care of not only cats, but all animals.”

Results: Prior to Cats Cradle Shelter opeining in 2012, there were HUNDREDS upon HUNDREDS of healthy, adoptable cats and kitten being euthanized in the 3 city pounds because there was no place for them to go. The euthanasia rate immediately dropped to Zero and for the past 4 years it has remained at ZERO. Our focus is to help acheive a no-kill nation.

Target demographics: Rescue, shelter, and find loving homes for thousands of lost, abandoned, abused and neglected cats and kittens.

Direct beneficiaries per year: In 2015 we rescued 524 cats and kittens and completed 525 adoptions. We also helped many other rescues by donating food, accepting animals in need of medical care from other rescues.

Geographic areas served: Fargo, North Dakota

Programs: Since our inception, Cats Cradle Shelter has completed nearly 2000 adoptions. All of these had complete veterinarian services, including felv/fiv testing, vaccinations, spay/neuter and vaccinations. All intact cats had spay/neuter procedures done. We continued the renovations to our individual community-style rooms our rescue cats reside in. We were featured in many radio, magazine, newspaper and television presentations.

I live in Louisville KY now but was in Charlotte NC when I first heard about Corky and what this shelter team was hoping to do for him. I have followed Cats Cradle on Facebook every since. I'm amazed and so appreciative of the care and the work these folks do. I know there are other shelters in America that also do good work, but Cats Cradle has been "chosen"! They are no longer a shelter "just in Fargo"; they are now known world wide yet have continued to keep their focus on the care of kitties and cats. I ask that everyone consider including this shelter in your taxable contributions. Another way that I like to contribute is by selection when shopping at smile.amazon.com. Thank you Cats Cradle for all you do!
