Individual Sponsorships

As with any nonprofit organization, donations from the public are largely what keeps us open and operational.  Our adoption fees don’t cover the medical expenses incurred in getting a cat spayed or neutered, current on vaccinations and healthy enough for public adoption, let alone our general operational costs (rent, electricity, etc).  Please help us provide a safe happy shelter for these cats! And remember, The Cattery is a 501(c)3 organization, so donations are tax deductible!  Below are some ways you can a one time donation:

Adoption Fee Sponsorship

For a donation of $75, you can sponsor the adoption fee of the cat of your choice.  On the surface, this program may not seem to help the shelter, as we would get the adoption fee when the cat is adopted anyway.  However, your generosity will inspire others to donate as well.  When adopters find out that the kitty they want has had their adoption fee sponsored by a kind-hearted individual, they will be moved to donate as well.  For example, during June, our adult kitties had all of their adoption fees waived.  One adopter was so moved, that she actually donated $100 - more than the adoption fee would have been anyway!  Kindness leads to kindness!  Either make a note while donating or email us afterwards at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) to let us know which kitty you want to sponsor!

Honorarium/ Memorial

What better way to give a gift or memorialize the cat lover in your life than by giving a donation in their name?  When donating, simply fill in the person’s name and address and we will send them a letter informing them of your gift. (If a memorial, include the family’s name and address as well.)
