Review for Hearts That Purr Feline Guardians, Tucson, AZ, USA
I have volunteered with a number of cat animal welfare groups for 6+ years. This is by far the best in terms of quality of care, unique need served, and supporting the human-animal bond. The cats taken in are all orphaned - their owners have died or become incapacitated. Most of them are older and would not get adopted or do well in a regular shelter.
People who enroll their cats in the guardian program have peace of mind about their cat's future. That's why I enrolled my cats - while I don't expect anything to happen to me soon, I love knowing that my cats would be cared for in a high quality manner and for the rest of their lives.
The other part of Hearts that Purr's program that I think is very important and special is their foster program - senior citizens and senior kitizens. It allows the cats at Hearts that Purr who are used to living with a person, to be placed with a senior citizen who will love and care for them. It is a win - win. Both the person and the cat get love and companionship. And the senior citizen gets assistance with the cat's care and expenses, as well as the security of knowing that the cat can go back to Hearts That Purr should anything happen to them or the cat. I LOVE what I have seen of how this program works - both the cats and people find a purpose and someone to care for. It is a Purrfect match.
