Q. Can I Surrender my Cat/s to You?
A. We wish we could accept all the wonderful and deserving Senior cats who need a new home. However, we are currently at our capacity of 25 and have a waiting list. We have learned that cats need shared and personal space to feel safe.
When a Senior resident passes, or is placed, we review the waiting list to see who has the most urgent need.
There is no good answer for those who have an immediate need but, if you are planning for the future, we suggest setting up a "Pet Trust" with your local Attorney. It can be done very inexpensively and will give you peace of mind.
To increase capacity, we are giving some thought to expanding our facility. This would require additional funds to build and operate. We would be thrilled to connect with a Corporate Sponsor or to receive an Endowment from a caring individual.
Q. Can I Volunteer?
A. We would love some help in maintaining our facility and caring for the cats but a big part of the enjoyment we receive from running the Sanctuary is through our interfacing with the cats.
If you will spread the word for our need of donations, this would be as beneficial as you volunteering.
Q. Can I Visit Cats Cradle?
A. Since many of our cats are in the final stage of their life, we are not open to the public. The next best thing would be for you to log on to our web cameras and follow your favorite Senior.
Q. Can we donate food?
A. While we prefer monetary donations, we do accept food donations. We would prefer to pick the food up as opposed to a drop off visit for the reason we mentioned above.
