Sparkle Cat Rescue, Inc.

Burlington, NC

Our Mission

Visit us on Facebook to stay up to date with our adoptable felines!

We are the forgotten felines, rescued by a network of experienced volunteers. We were once homeless, abandoned, neglected and were rescued and given a second chance!

The kitties of Sparkle Cat Rescue remain in foster care until they are adopted, receiving lots of love and socialization and vet care.


Adoption Policy
