It was a real pleasure working with Love of Cats. We are very happy with Stormie, our new addition to our family. Love of Cats did a wonderful job advising us about her habits so we could do a good job in preparing Stormie for her new environment. Our adoption process was very easy. We highly recommend Love of Cats to anyone looking to adopt a healthy loving cat to there family of pets.

Thank you Jan and Rich for the awesome work you and your staff does everyday to save the lives of the beautiful cats and kittens that are helpless. You are giving them a chance for a loving, wonderful life. We need more people like yourselves in this world.
Thank you Jim and Jan for your wonderful, dedicated work to save these lovely animals. Sasha is doing great, she is a great addition to my house.
I found For The Love of Cats 4 years ago. They truly care for the little beauties and the people that would like to adopt. They also do a great job with placing senior cats with seniors. This foundation and all the volunteers are wonderful.
For the Love of Cats is a blessing to all the fabulous felines and cat loving humans who come in contact with the organization. Jan, Jim and their compassionate, volunteer staff provide exemplary care and excellent socialization to all the cats they shelter. They do everything possible to assure that each and every cat finds their way to the forever home that is the proper match for their age, activity level, temperament and individual needs. For the Love of Cats also serves the best interests of their community, playing a key role in countywide TNR efforts that assist in stemming the growth of community cat populations while providing for the health and welfare of the existing colonies. They promote spay and neuter efforts, provide necessary emergency resources to assist low income families in caring for their feline companions, and subsidize special Senior to Senior adoption programs that assure older cats and humans both enjoy the companionship they so richly deserve. Thank you for rescuing and placing so many cats in need into loving, adoptive homes over the last 15 years. In so doing, you've provided countless numbers of blessed adopters with the greatest sources of joy they could ever experience.
The dedication, compassion and understanding Jan and Jim Rich show for the plight of homeless cats in Southwest Florida is unprecedented. They leave no stone unturned in their efforts to rescue abandoned cats, provide medical and supportive care for the sick, and find appropriate and loving adoptive homes for those they shelter. The loving care provided by their volunteers literally transforms once fearful strays, enabling them to go on to enjoy long lives as loving companions to their adopters. They also provide TNR services to support local feral colonies and assist area families in need so they can keep and care for their family pets. For the Love of Cats is truly a blessing to the community it serves.
Jan and Jim and their volunteers are dedicated to the care and well being of abandoned and
lost kitties on our island. They provide top notch care, surgery when necessary and lovingly care for the kitties in need. They help control the feral cat population by trapping, neutering, releasing and providing feeding stations. They are are asset to our community. Beth & Terry
For love of cats is a wonderful organization. Jim Rich help me by getting My 3 rescue cats spade and rabies shots. For no cost to me
My LeMew went missing, and I discovered a hole in the corner of the screen. My worst fears were realized. I have loved her since she poked her little head out of the Marco Marriott spa bushes, and insisted I take her home 4 years ago.
At that time, For the Love of Cats helped me get her a medical checkup and check her for a chip.
So when she was gone, I knew who to call. Jim Rich returned my call and was so thorough in his explanation on what to do. He said I should look for her in the bushes right near where she jumped out. He said cats immediately camouflage themselves and calling her wouldn't work. He recommended I put food, water, and a familiar item out on the ground near the hole. He recommended I take a flashlight out at dusk and get down on the ground and look in the bushes. If I didn't find her, he said he would come out and set a trap.
I am happy to report we didn't have to set a trap. Mew is home safe and happy.
For the Love of Cats can also read microchips in cats and help change the information to the new owner. Jim Rich really helped me to have hope that I would see her again by being detailed in his advice. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
For The Love of Cats is an absolutely wonderful rescue group! I am so glad we have them in our community and I cannot praise the organization and Jim and Jan Rich enough! They have helped me numerous times over the years with multiple feral cats, getting them fixed, and also with vet bills when they were injured or sick. In fact, just today they helped me with a very sweet stray cat who had a lump that turned out to be an abscess. I truly feel blessed knowing that I could call them at any time and they would always help me with the cats! I thank them from the bottom of my heart for all their help!
Review from Guidestar
Hi! We are the Tougas Family and we've just completed two kitten adoptions with Jim and Jan. We not only found beautiful, healthy kittens in an extremely clean facility but also found dedicated, knowledge and caring caregivers for all the cats. We would highly recommend For the Love of Cats for anyone interested in finding a forever friend!
Our goal is to try to be sure that you have everything you need to care for your new fur kids. You can call us anytime with questions. Thanks for the great review!
Amazing group of caring dedicated animal lovers who direct every dime into the program. It's wonderful to know that a $ 50 donation can do so much to rescue and raise our kitties that don't have their forever homes yet. I wish every city and town, and homeless kitty had a group like this.
We really appreciate what Jim and Jan do for the feline community. We are proud to know these great people. As a cat lover we do what we can to help. keep up the great work
I did not plan on adoption the day my baby girl, Marissa chose me to be her new mom! Jim was so great moving me through the process. They love all there babies that come to them, care deeply about there welfare. Marissa is the joy of my life and iam so greatful for the love they gave my girl before we found each other! I hope that anyone that can donate their time, money, or spread the word about this wonderful organization do so!!! Thank you for your tireless efforts to make a cats life so wonderful!

For the Love of Cats is providing a wonderful service to our island and the surrounding community. Six years ago, we adopted our two wonderful cats, Martini and Gimlet ( a feral baby) from them. They have converted a three car garage in their home into a first-rate immaculate facility for abandoned, injured and feral cats. All cats are neutered and spayed in cooperation with a local vet. The adult ferals are released back into the community, near where they were found, while the babies are adopted out. Additionally, the released ferals are monitored to be sure that they remain healthy and fed. The time and dedication they provide for the care and well being of these animals is inspiring, invaluable and unbelievably admirable!
Wonderful caring group with truly passionate volunteers!
Jan and Jim Rich and their staff of volunteers are very dedicated and caring and provide top-notch care for their kitties. Their facility is immaculate. They are a valuable asset to our community.
All of the staff at For The Love Of Cats are fantastic! They are friendly and helpful with any question you may have about cats. Even though my cats were adopted up North, the people at For The Love Of Cats were gracious and responsive when I asked for assistance with finding a cat accessory. My next cat will definitely be adopted from this dedicated group of volunteers!
Top notch non profit exercising the most gentle & kind practices raising wee kitties and nursing others of all ages into excellent health. I've gotten several adorable kitties from Jan & Rich. The volunteers are awesome as well!
Having adopted several kitties from For the Love of Cats in the past I would give 10 stars if I could for this shelter. Jim & Jan Rich have dedicated much of their time developing & running this super clean facility alive with love and care with the help of wonderful selfless local volunteers. No question the Rich's are genuinely passionate about helping felines in need. This nonprofit shelter is top notch!
The passion and commitment of the dedicated volunteers at For The Love of Cats has produced many very "LUCKY" cats over the past 12 years!
Who would have thought that such a charity on a small island in southwest Florida could 'claw' its way into the hearts of so many of us!
Bravo and keep up the "purrfect" work!
An acquaintance cheated death by rescuing a kitten that was toss out of a car - This kitten was dehydrated, had road rash/burns, chipped teeth and non-stop crying. Can you imagine the fear this kitten experienced. My acquaintance asked me for help ~ I received help for this terrified kitten from The Love of Cats !!! Their magnificent facility and caring volunteers restored 'Petey' to a healthy kitten and best of all found him a forever home. Jim & Jan Rich and their staff are the best !!!
This is the most amazing organization! Jan and Jim personally handle adoptions and are passionate about rescuing and re-homing cats on Marco Island. Their commitment is amazing and they always go the extra mile to make sure the cats find the perfect home. I love their passion and their love of cats. What a wonderful organization!
I met Jim and Jan while volunteering at the Humane Society in Naples. They are two of the most amazing people I have ever met and their mission is so honorable and heartfelt. They are truly dedicated to their cause and they go above and beyond to save homeless kitties. They often take some of the HS kitties to showcase them at Petsmart and I am always amazed how some of our longer term kitties are adopted through Jim and Jan. They have a passion and we in southwest Florida are grateful for these kind souls - they are responsible for saving the lives of so many cats and kittens and they deserve recognition for their tireless work on behalf of these felines.
