The Hermitage No-Kill Cat Shelter was founded in 1965 as a sanctuary for the abandoned and unwanted cats in our community. We have worked hard for 50 years to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home these amazing kitties with their forever families.
We were the first no-cage, no-kill shelter in Arizona, and are one of only about two dozen shelters in the United States that cares for cats with FIV (feline immune-deficiency virus) or FeLV (feline leukemia virus) for the entirety of their lives, or until they are adopted. We believe that every cat has a family, and we just need to find them!
In order to find adoptive homes for our special needs kitties, we instituted a new program called Lease for Life. If you are interested in adoptive one of our FIV or FeLV kitties, ask us about it!
Not only are we a long-term sanctuary for kitties with special needs, or who might be considered unadoptable by other shelters due to behavioral issues, we're an active adoption facility! All of our kitties are adoptable or available for sponsorship.
When we rescue a cat or kitten, they are provided with love, attention, cuddles, medical care, toys and everything they need in order to have a happy, healthy life, for as long as they are with us. If we aren't able to find them an adoptive home, they will spend their lives with us at the Hermitage. We never destroy an animal to "make room for another", or because they are "inconvenient". Rather, they are protected and loved from birth/rescue until death.
We are open to the public from 10am to 5pm, Tuesday through Saturday. Our closest cross-streets are 22nd and Craycroft, and we are behind the strip mall with the DES office, in a neighborhood.
