Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Our goal is to assist the Winchendon community and surrounding area with their stray cat issues by providing shelter, medical care and placement of cats and kittens into loving homes.

About Our Shelter:

We are a non-profit cat shelter, run by volunteers, who are committed to the care and well-being of every cat or kitten that we rescue. We accept stray, abandoned, or unwanted cats in the Winchendon area. As space allows, we also accept cats who might otherwise be euthanized or abandoned, from individuals with financial hardship or other circumstances.

We rely solely on donations and adoption fees to sustain our effort which is why your support is so important. 100% of donations are spent caring for the cats. All donations are tax deductible.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a cat or kitten versus getting cats for sale or kittens for sale from a cat breeder? When someone is breeding kittens, they are creating new cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of cat or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a cat for sale from a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a cat or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
