Pets at Our Shelter:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:
The Cat House is a non-profit, no-kill shelter in Lincoln, Nebraska. We are a limited admission feline-only shelter. We began operations in 1999 to provide an alternative to traditional shelters. We only euthanize for pain and suffering, never to make space for more adoptable cats. We are an all-volunteer group, with no paid staff. We have a 7 member Board of Directors, one of which is our consulting Veterinarian. We rent a care facility and a storefront adoption center, in addition to space at our local PetsMart. We exist entirely on adoption fees and donations. We have partnered with our local shelter in three large hoarder situations by taking in many of the cats and kittens. We have adopted out over 1500 cats and kittens since our beginnings. If you would like to adopt a cat, please see either the cats listed at this website or at our website. If you would like to donate to help pay the rent or the utilities, you may do so by credit card via Pay Pal on our website or send a check to our address. Local volunteers are always needed and welcomed. If you would like to volunteer, please fill out an application on our website.
Come Meet our Pets:
Our adoption center is open Tuesday and Thursday from 6-8 p.m. and Sunday from 1:30 - 4:00. We are located at 1935 Q street, Lincoln Nebraska. We also have cats available at PetsMart's 5200 N. 27th St location in Lincoln.
Our Adoption Process:
Our adoption process consists of completion of an application, followed by an interview. All applications and interview results are reviewed by our board. An adoption contract is completed at the time of adoption. Our adoption fee is currently $90.00 ($45 for the second and subsequent cats adopted at or around the same time). If the cat is considered to be special needs or a senior (age 7 or over), or if the adopter is age 60 or over, the fee is reduced to $60. All cats and kittens have been spayed or neutered, tested for feline leukemia virus, microchipped, and are up-to-date on rabies and RCP ("distemper") vaccinations. To help facilitate adoptions we adopt only within a 200 radius from of Lincoln Nebraska and we cannot ship cats.
