Alternatives to Surrender

Alternatives to Surrender

Before you decide to give up your precious friend, please review our list of possible alternatives.

We understand that situations can arise that may cause you to question whether keeping your family member is the best option for you or for the cat/kitten.  If, despite your best efforts, it is necessary to give them up, we are here to help. Our goal is to find a happy, purrfect home for every cat or kitten in our care.
