In our hearts we would like to aid every cat in distress and take in every cat that needs a home. Despite this need, we must acknowledge our limited resources.

Because we are not a shelter, we do not have a permanent facility to house pets. All of our cats are placed in hand-picked foster homes, many of which are filled to capacity.

We try to make exceptions for cats in life-threatening situations, but for the most part we have very limited space.

Due to the large number of surrender requests we receive we suggest checking for no-kill shelters in your area prior to approaching Love for Cats.

You can find a list of no-kill shelters here.

Thank you for understanding.

  1. Please contact us first before submitting an application.
  2. Obtain verbal confirmation
