Our Intake Policy

Tabby’s Place’s mission is to rescue cats from hopeless situations. We focus on felines with no one on their side, who are alone in the world and facing desperate circumstances.

As a result, most of our cats come via Animal Control; trap-neuter-return (TNR) work; and crowded public shelters.

Although we wish we could help every cat in need, we unfortunately cannot generally take cats from the public. But, if you’re seeking a home for a cat, we can help you in one of three ways:

  • Our Help Form will connect you with advice, resources, and a list of organizations that may be able to assist you.
  • The Guardian Angel Program enables you to plan ahead for your cats to come to Tabby’s Place if you should predecease them.
  • The Exceptional Circumstances Program is for folks who are seeking to place a cat at Tabby’s Place immediately, and prepared to make an extremely large donation that can help many other cats.

If the cat you need help with was adopted from Tabby’s Place, please see our Return Policy.

Whether or not we can take your cat at Tabby’s Place, we can help point you in the right direction. You’re not alone, and there is hope.
