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

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a volunteer at Gifford Cat Shelter for almost 1 1/2 years. Every week I go to scoop, sweep, mop, wash to get the shelter ready for a weekend open house. What I have seen during all of this time is exactly heaven on earth, where scared cats, frozen with fear, sick and lashing out, are turned into puddles of love, jumping into your lap for affection. We get cats and kittens from all over and in every condition. Without fail, the incredible staff and volunteers at this no-kill, free roam shelter take all the time they need to mend, love on, and socialize their guests, making them ready for another shot at home life. We all deserve a second chance, particularly those without a voice. Gifford makes that possible, even if it takes years.

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

Rating: 5 stars  

From its spotless floors and litter boxes to the purring happy clients that are matched to their forever pet parents, Gifford accomplishes the wondrous task of rehoming every type of cat and kitten under every set of circumstances. The beat up feral and the winsome kitten are equally adoptable in the eyes of this shelter, and the creatures loved, tended and sometimes mended until the right family is found. This is a place that truly cares about its cats.
