About Our Lady of Mercy's Catnip Cottage
About Our Rescue Group...
We are an all-foster home, no-kill, cageless, no time limit feline sanctuary. We rescue high-risk cats the shelters and veterinarians will not otherwise offer for adoption. We focus on "special needs" and mature animals, although not ALL of our adoptable cats are mature or have a special need. We take these pets into our homes, socialize them with our own families and provide for all their needs until they are adopted. We stand behind our adopted pets for their entire lives. Some of our sanctuary pets are socialized, vetted and trained to provide pet therapy services to area rehabilitation and assisted living facilities.
Come Meet Our Pets...You can meet our pets in purr-son by calling the foster parent and arranging an appointment at their foster home. We also hold adoptathons on occasion at the Azalea Square PetsMart, Summerville, SC or at Petco in Walterboro, SC on Bells Highway.
