Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:
Hope for Cats, Inc. administers Jake's Place, a no-kill, no-cages cat shelter and adoption center serving the Buffalo, NY metropolitan area and its suburbs.
Hope for Cats, Inc. is a completely volunteer-run, nonprofit organization whose mission is to shelter, nurture, and socialize homeless and abandoned cats in a loving, home-like environment until they can be adopted to their forever home. Jake's Place, our cat shelter and adoption center has a daily schedule of dedicated volunteers who feed the cats, clean the shelter, and conduct health checks of every cat in order to keep them healthy and happy. We have seen amazing transformations among the cats in our care -- time, patience, and lots of love have changed many a frightened, even feral-like cat to an affectionate, trusting, happy cat ready to be safely adopted to their forever home.
Come Meet our Pets:
For now, visits to Jake's Place are by appointment-only after a telephone screening process. Hope for Cats, Inc. does do occasional shows at local pet stores and these will be announced in our newsletter, "Marshmallow's Mewsings", and on our Web site at www.hopeforcatsinc.com.
Our Adoption Process:
The Hope for Cats, Inc. adoption fee is $80.00 and includes a 2-fur-1 opportunity. The Hope for Cats, Inc. Senior Cats for Seniors program adopts older cats to seniors at a reduced rate. All of our cats are spayed or neutered, Combo-tested, vaccinated, and treated for worms, fleas, and ear mites prior to coming to the shelter. Potential adopters complete an Adoption Application which is reviewed by HFC volunteers. Adopters sign an Adoption Contract in which they agree to keep the cat indoors, to not declaw, and to return the cat to HFC should the adoption not work out (lifetime return guarantee).
