We serve the Treasure Valley which is primarily in southwestern Idaho. It is the state's largest officially designated metropolitan area and includes Idaho's three largest cities – Boise, Nampa, and Meridian.
We review all applications and check information provided. It could take up to 48 hrs, we're a small, all volunteer organization.
The application is a starting point, you'll speak with our adoption counselor at this point.
Most of our kittens and cats are in foster homes, some are at one of three Petco stores. We like to meet all members of the family.
Is this a love match? If so, we text you a link to your phone and you'll sign the adoption contract and enter your adoption fee payment.
All cats may leave our care after they have been spayed or neutered. Please bring a clean and secure pet carrier with you. No cardboard.
Happy Jack Cats, Inc., is a Idaho Non-Profit Corporation. We are a foster-based, feline, no-kill rescue and adoption group. Our kittens and cats are in foster homes throughout the Boise and Meridian areas, we have no store-front location. We always need donations, fosters parents, and volunteers.
Happy Jack Cats, Inc., (HJC) was founded in November 2015 by individuals concerned for the welfare of "throwaway" kittens and cats in the Boise and Meridian areas of Idaho. We have a Board of Directors consisting of three members. HJCI has no paid employees, but has a strong foster program made up of skilled volunteers in homes through-out the area. To date, all funding for HJCI is out-of-pocket or has come from donations, grants and re-homing fees.
One of our group had been working to save the lives of kittens for about four years before we incorporated, but as it became known in the community that she was very good at re-homing kittens, she was flooded with animals; orphaned, abandoned, lost, abused and otherwise unwanted. It was at this point, that she realized that there was a huge need.
Because of this, she decided to create a nonprofit organization to fill the void, recruited two like-minded people to form the board, and Happy Jack Cats, Inc. came into being.
HJC saves kittens from euthanasia that are too young to be adopted or have treatable conditions that would prevent them from being adopted. We take in kittens younger than twelve weeks of age, including bottle babies. At times we receive adult cats, particularly kitten mammas in need of spaying.
Even though our rescued animals often come from terrible circumstances,once bathed, wormed, spayed/neutered, micro-chipped, and vaccinated are beautiful, loving and very much in demand. Our goal is to place kittens and cats with families that will love and care for them for their lifespans.
Happy Jack Cats, Inc., is an exempt organization as described in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, EIN #47-5455805.
We do not have a storefront location, but you can see some of our our cats and kittens at two PETCO stores. Happy Jack Cats, Inc. is a partner with the PETCO Foundation and can offer our cats/kittens for adoption in two local PETCO stores. See our cats/kittens at 3548 S Findley Ave, Boise, ID. or 3006 E. State St., Eagle, ID.
Since our pets are in foster homes all over the area, we show them by-appointment only. Check out our Facebook Page, facebook.com/happyjackcatsinc, or our Website, happyjackcats.org to identify the kitten you are interested in and then call or message us. Also, we advertise on Craigslist.
Thanks to all of our wonderful adoptive families, our volunteers and our foster families without who's help we could not exist.
