I have adopted several kitties from Jan and Jim over the past 10 years and every time it is such a happy day to bring home a new kitty from For The Love of Cats.
My most recent rescue turned out to be a rescue for our family. Buddy (aka) Salvadore healed our home from such sadness. Jim actually hand picked him for us and I THANK GOD every day for him...i am tearing up just thinking about it
After my 18 year old car died, I adopted a kitten from For the Love of Cats. She had received excellent care and handling, and has been the best cat ever! Their volunteers are the best.
For the Love of Cats is one of the most fulfilling things I've ever done, both for the cats, and myself. I have volunteered for over a year, and in the course of that time, have adopted two incredible little brothers! For the Love of Cats does such a great job at finding the right home for the right animal. The cats are healthy, well socialized, and LOVED by the many volunteers and friends. Jim and Jan have given tirelessly of their home and their lives to keep this amazing nonprofit going strong for 13 years. I am proud to be associated with them!
Found both of my kitties at this wonderful shelter, drove from San Carlos Park to get there twice. I was so impressed by the cleanliness, the attention to details, the care that each cat and kittens were given. It was simply amazing. I had rescued another cat from another shelter years before and the difference was startling. It is the only kitty rescue I recommend from now on, sorry you other guys, they are that good.
I have been a volunteer and friend of For the Love of Cats for many years.
The love, care and attention that all participants give our four-legged visitors is truly beyond measure.
Our shelter owners spend endless "hands-on" hours and substantial personal funds to maintain this incredible environment.
It has truly been my personal pleasure to be associated with such a superb, responsible and loving organization!
I have been volunteering at For the Love of Cats for several years now. It is so rewarding to heal the sick and find loving homes for all who pass through our door. We adopted Emma and Gracie and are now a happy 3-cat family. Jim and Jan are so dedicated to helping the sick and abandoned find new homes and enrich the lives of those who adopt them. So, even if you are not "in the market" for a new addition to your family at this time, we will happily take your donation to care for the ones we have. Have a Merry Christmas everyone!!
I love my job! Every Wednesday morning I get to go to work and hug and kiss all the cats and kittens we all take care of every day of the week. All the volunteers are dedicated to the health and happiness of all the cats that come through our shelter. Jim and Jan are totally dedicated to the caring and adopting of all the feral, homeless and abandoned cats. What would all these little critters do without them??
As a volunteer, it is amazing to see first hand the love and dedication of all those involved with for the Love of Cats. Imagine 2 day old kittens, abandoned, no mother, and having to be bottle fed every 4 hours day and night for weeks! And then imagine the very lucky folks who adopted each of them, what love those kittens will give back every moment of their lives! Every cat and kitten that comes through this shelter gets the same devoted attention, day and night. Now we truly understand why the 3 cats we adopted from them 6 years ago are the most loving animals we have ever had.

The dedication of Jim and Jan and all the volunteers to providing the best care helps the cats get adopted to their forever homes. Working there is always rewarding, and has resulted in us adopting five ourselves. You can't help but fall in love with them.
No amount of time, love, or expense is ever spared to save lives and work toward the goal of forever homes for the cats and kittens.
I have adopted two cats from For The Love Of Cats and could not be any happier. I volunteer because I believe in everything For The Love Of Cats stands for. Jim and Jan are two people who love what their doing and you can sense that when you talk to them. For The Love Of Cats deserves the highest rating they can achieve.
When I originally join the shelter I was only expecting to get the volunteer hours and be done with it. But as time passed by my intentions at the shelter changed. Not only has going to the shelter helped hundreds of cats but it also helped myself and made me grow as a person. I won't forget my experience there for it was honestly one of the best times of my life.
