A 501(c)3 Non-Profit Charitable Organization & No-Kill Animal Rescue
Thank you for visiting our website!
Since 2007, House of Critters has helped over 200 animals find safe, happy and healthy homes, many of which were abandoned, abused, or injured. We are strong supporters of spaying and neutering to control the pet population, and are happy to assist and educate pet owners by offering advice to help remedy problems.

LIBBY'S FUND: Love Is Believing in a Better You The video below tells Libby's story - it starts out sad, but ends on a happy note.
As a result of Libby's horrible experience of neglect and multiple illnesses, we have set up an on-going fundraiser in her name. This fund will help felines who find themselves in similar circumstances and need immediate vet care to help them survive. We are proud to create this in her honor.
You can donate by clicking on the PayPal logo below:
Our adoption fees are very reasonable: $50 for cats over 1 year, and $75 for kittens. Exotic breeds (siamese, himalayan) are $125. We offer a discount if you adopt multiple cats, even if adopted at a later date.
We do all the vetting so you don't have to spend time at the vet's office. At most vets you would spend as much as $300 to fully vet your cat!

Post an ad and look over the ads on the following websites: Petfinder Lost Pet Ads www.LostAPet.org Detroit Craigslist Lost & Found Detroit Craigslist Pets 4. Contact shelters in the area where the animal was lost/found
Reconsider Your Options
If you are considering looking for a new home for your animal, we encourage you visit this web site that provides tips on re-homing: purebredcatbreedrescue.org/rehome.htm
Fostering Until A New Home is Found
If you can keep the pet temporarily, consider joining our group as a temporary foster home, and continue to keep the animal until we can help find a new home.
Placement into One of Our Foster Homes
We do not have a shelter. Our foster homes are often full or above capacity. Animals that are up-to-date on shots (rabies, distemper), are fixed, and are negative for feline leukemia/FIV will have a much HIGHER chance of getting placed within temporary foster care.
If we are able to take in your pet, we require a donation for each cat surrendered. The amount required is dependent on the amount of vetwork that will need to be done
Controlling the Pet Population Because of the high number of homeless pets, we highly encourage and promote spaying or neutering your pet. Why? Because as many as 8-10 million homeless animals are put to sleep each year.
Partners and Supporters
The Rainbow Bridge: for those who are no longer with us
Just this side of heaven is a place called the Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together...
