    Before You Adopt - Choose the right shelter or rescue group

    The pet adoption experience at different types of shelters can be vastly different, so take the time to visit the home page of your local groups to see which you might enjoy working with most.

    Open access shelters

    take in all stray animals and are usually county or city shelters

    Humane societies

    are private facilities. Some are open access and others are limited.

    Foster groups

    are usually volunteer foster parents who don't have a physical location.

    The organizations below have all either met the requirements of the SEP (American  Humane Association's Standards of Excellence Programs) or have declared a non-euthanizing program. Those shelters which are marked with a "*NK" are no-kill shelters as of this writing, though it is advisable  that you call and contact them directly to make sure that this still their policy. An "^" after the name of the shelter suggests that "cents-off" coupons for pet foods and supplies are valued here.

    Välkommen kattvän. - Föreningen har ett eget katthem  och tar emot upphittade och hemlösa katter. Vi tar också emot katter från kronofogdemyndigheter, polis, sociala myndigheter och dödsbon. Katterna återbördas till sina ägare eller utplaceras i nya hem. Innan  utplacering lägger vi ner mycket tid och arbete på att rehabilitera ev. sjuka och störda katter. Vi kontrollerar de nya hemmen noga och överlåtelsekontrakt skrivs alltid där den nye ägaren förbinder sig att ta väl  hand om djuret.

    Tillfälliga inackorderingar tas emot i mån av plats.

    Föreningens medlemmar arbetar för att alla katters rättsliga och sociala status skall förbättras och för att förhindra och bekämpa  djurplågeri. Vi informerar också om hur man på bästa sätt sköter sin katt.

    Verksamheten bedrivs och bekostas av privata medel. Ekonomin är mycket svag eftersom kostnaderna för hyra, veterinärvård, vaccinering,  kastrering, sand och mat uppgår till avsevärda belopp varje månad.

    Alla inkommande medel går oavkortat till hjälp åt nödlidande katter. Alla som arbetar på katthemmet gör det på sin fritid helt ideellt.

    Föreningens motto är "Katten ska leva - inte dö".

    Thank you for your interest in our  Adoption Center. Pets Unlimited is a non-profit charitable organization that was established in the 1940's. It was located on Sacramento Street in San Francisco, and it provided homeless animals with care, shelter and  adoption services. It was also the first Adoption Center with a "no-kill" agenda. In the 1970's, Pets Unlimited moved to its current building on Fillmore Street. Due to a noise ordinance, the Adoption Center  can no longer house dogs. Today, Pets Unlimited serves as the only 24 hour emergency hospital in the city. It also runs a cat Adoption Center.

    I urge everyone to visit the center. There are many happy and healthy  feline friends who are looking for new homes. All of the cats have passed a physical exam, been spayed or neutered, been tested for FIV and Leukemia, been vaccinated and been bathed. The facility is unique because  visitors can pet, play with and handle all of the cats. In addition, we always need volunteers to assist with cat care. Please visit!!

Our rescue's goal is to find happy and healthy homes for those that have been abandoned, abused or are strays.

We will keep a cat until the perfect home is found for him/her, usually 1 week to 1 year. We operate solely on donations and  the kindness of volunteers and local veterinarians.

They are affection trained and are not considered  until they are COMPANION ready.

    The ACRF program provides resources to enable individuals  primarily in the South/South East San Francisco Bay Area to rescue abandoned, abused and/or neglected cats and kittens of all ages. Our Placement Program is also available to assist people in adopting a new cat or  finding new homes for their present cats.  The foundation is a non-profit organization comprised of individuals who spend their own time (and often their own money) to see to it that whatever cats we can sponsor  are nourished and healed - both physically and psychologically.  Once a feline is deemed ready, it is shown at certain display points so that individuals who wish to own a cat can choose to adopt one of the ACRF  cats.

    ACRF has found homes for over 3,000 cats in 3 years.

While our central office is in the Chicago area, we are a nationally connected club, and have representatives throughout the country. We have no  affiliation with any club or parent organization, although some cat clubs donate money to our cause.

    S.A.B.R.E. works with a number of shelters and veterinarian offices, as well as appears at cat shows, to make  ourselves known. Most of the cats we see are from shelters or turned into us by the owner.

    P.O. Box 30206
    Indpls., IN 46230

    Cats Haven is a nonprofit organization providing many services for our feline friends. It is a pro-life, no-kill shelter for cats and kittens who are in transition and  need a home of their own. It is a non-institutional shelter so cats are not kept in  cages as a rule. It is a hospice for cats whose injuries need  attention before they can be adopted. Cats Haven is also a  final home for cats who have outlived their owners and are in their golden years themselves. We are currently at capacity and cannot house any more cats.

    flowericongrey The Cat Network

    is an all-volunteer, no-kill, St. Louis-based cat rescue group in operation since 1991. We are a  501(c)(3) Missouri corporation.

    The Cat Network rescues abandoned, abused, stray and shelter cats. Approximately 85% of our rescues come from local kill shelters,  and require intensive medical treatment. For  the period 1/1/96 - 7/31/96, our expenses total $32,000 with over half of this attributed to medical expenses. The balance consists of shelter rescue fees, fundraiser costs, advertising, insurance, and litter, food  & other cat supplies. We have 15 veterinarians in the area we work with who provide us with discounted rates. We also take people's pets they need to place, and ask for help from them and other rescuers in  sponsoring costs for their cats, so we can focus our income on the more unfortunate ones

    We are funded about evenly between adoption fees, donations and our various fundraisers.
