Important information about bringing a cat to our shelter

Despite cats being adopted recently, we cannot take in your cat yet. We wish we could, but we can’t, and here’s why:

44 is the number of cats that we can house at our shelter. We are at this limit already, and taking in more cats can lead to us receiving citations from the state. Repeated citations could lead to us losing our license.

Plus 15 cats under our care are in foster homes waiting to come to the shelter.

Over 75 Cats are on our waiting list to come in, and we get calls & messages about stray cats or cats needing surrendered multiple times a day.

We are doing our best to help, but the need greatly exceeds our resources. We’ll gladly talk to you about other trustworthy organizations or adding you to the waiting list, but please be patient with us. Understand that we dedicate our time to helping as many animals as we can, and we are just as frustrated as you are when we have to turn one away.

For the most up-to-date information about cat intake, please call our shelter (319-975-8283) between Tues-Sat from noon-6:30pm.


Note: These specific number reflect the situation as of the end of October 2020, though we have been in this situation for quite a long time now.
