Exceptional Circumstances Program
Ringo (l) & Mittens (r)

In fulfilling our mission “as a refuge of last resort for cats,” we focus on accepting cats that were scheduled for euthanasia at other shelters. There is never a “shortage” of cats in this hopeless situation, so all of our openings can be filled immediately by cats from shelters.

We do, however, recognize that there are cases when a member of the public has a cat that they simply feel they must give up immediately. Rather than completely ignore such cases, we have created the Exceptional Circumstances Program.

Demand for space at Tabby's Place is high and there is always a waiting list that is several months long. The Exceptional Circumstances Program allows us to bypass this list and accept your cat immediately. In doing so, we are in conflict with our mission. Because of this, acceptance to this program requires a substantial donation, which will allow us to save many more cats in the long term.

The donation: the minimum donation is $5,000, with the specific amount determined after a careful review of the cat's medical history.

If you are interested in considering this program, please call (908-237-5300 x235) or email (at@tabbysplace.org) our Development Director, Angela.
