It all began with one black kitten. I found her on a parking lot at work. She was alone and seemed extremely hungry when offered food.
We named her “Lucky” and we were friends for nine beautiful years. She followed me everywhere, even when taking my dog for a walk, and with no leash!
In 2012, a near-fatal aneurysm almost stopped me dead in my tracks. Since then, I’ve felt that I’ve been given a second chance in life. I started volunteering at a shelter and realized the need to help homelss cats.
I began trapping cats and taking them to shelters where they could be adopted and fostered.
After a year of buying traps, nets, litter boxes, and having nearly 25 kittens in my garage for adoption, someone suggested I start a nonprofit.
In early 2018 I took the jump and started a nonprofit. My dream, Love for Cats, was born.
Since then, we estimate we’ve helped more than 1000 cats per year. On average, we help about 50-100 homeless cats per month by providing medical care, TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return), or finding them a forever home.
