Our Mission

Love & Cuddles Pet Respite Care program: We strive to keep dogs and cats with their families by providing temporary foster care when owners must be hospitalized. We do this by partnering with local agencies that serve seniors, disabled, or disadvantaged pet parents without resources. Keeping these pets safe and sending them home when the owner is well benefits the owners’ recovery, while also allowing the shelters to use their space for truly homeless pets. Of course, we occasionally end up with animals that need adoption too. We are 100% no kill, and we never give up.

Catnip Casa Cat Refuge Mission: Catnip Casa Cat Refuge is the parent organization, which provides care for cats that require extensive rehab or lifelong pawspice care due to age, disease, or disabilities that do not allow them to remain in their home or community due to medical needs or behavioral challenges. In the case of community cats, they are unable to function in their natural environment. The cats we accept have the potential to live well with specialized care. We strive to keep their environment safe and normal while addressing unique needs, including rehabilitation, along with caregiver training and support to adopt them into loving homes.

We educate owners, caregivers, professionals, and the public, about caring for cats and dogs with challenges caused by age, disease, disabilities, or terminal illness. We strive to develop a network of persons, services, foster homes, and resources, that benefit the community. We actively support TNR (trap/neuter/release) for community cats.

Adoption Policy

All animals available for adoption are current on vaccinations, spayed or neutered, and have been under the care of a veterinarian while in our program. We do not charge extra for those that required extensive medical care prior to adoption.

What is involved in our adoption process?
--Contact us to meet the kitty you want to adopt.
--Catnip Casa Cat Refuge gives you an adoption application.
--You are welcome to visit your kitty as often as you like to insure a good fit before finalizing the adoption.
--We request a donation of $35.
--You receive 30-days of free PetFirst Pet Insurance! Plus, discount coupons for vet care and food, along with a free check-up coupon to reassure you of a healthy new pet!

We ask you to make an appointment because our animals live in private foster homes and frequent unexpected guests disrupt homelife for the family, as well as the pets.

We always welcome anyone interested in becoming a great cat parent. Please call or email for our application.
