Review for Ellen Gifford Sheltering Home, Brighton, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was searching for a "cat specific" rescue to donate to as there tends to be so much focus on rescue dogs (and trust me, I donate to them too)! Upon doing my research I read wonderful things about the Gifford Cat Shelter and know I know why! I have visited the shelter several times over the last year to donate supplies or discuss fundraising opportunities and am always just so impressed with this facility. If I had to be a cat looking for a home I hope I would end up here!
The staff and volunteers have always been such a joy to work with. Their knowledge and passion always shines through and you can just tell they love what they do. What impresses me the most however is the facility for the cats. I love that these furry angels can roam free and have the ability to go both inside and out for exercise, mental stimulation, etc. I am just so happy to see all the cats not locked up in tiny cages.
I do a lot of rescue work and while I know space is always a challenge for shelters I think Gifford does an amazing job utilizing the space they have. I adore the cat towers and levels in their shelter. Cats can roam around and climb which is so important for their quality of life.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The only change I would honestly make would be giving them more room (and more money) if I could so they could help save more cats!
