My story

For a former feral, Melody sure acts like she was born to be a housecat. She will greet you at the door every time, play with you with toys, and loves to flip over and show you her belly. She loves people and other cats, and would be a great companion.

All of our kittens are currently in Foster Homes. They are not at our facility. Adoption counselors can arrange for you to meet the kittens once your application is approved. Kittens through 6 months $125 or 2 for $200; Kitties over 6 months $100 or 2 for $150.

Our Adoptable Kittens ARE NOT FERAL. We take them from the streets at a young age, and some are feral at the time of rescue. However, we spend many hours taming, socializing, and acclimating them to indoor life as a pet cat. They are currently friendly, healthy, and playful kittens who are just waiting for their special someone to take them home. All of our kittens are spayed or neutered, tested for FeLV/FIV, vaccinated against Distemper, and treated for fleas and other parasites.

Go meet their pets

Our adoption center is located at 7962 Clyde Park SW Byron Center. We are open by appointment only once an application has been submitted and approved.

'Our adoption facility houses so many kitties. The rest are in foster homes. If you want to meet a specific kitty, please inquire with us before attending an adoption event, so we can make every effort to have the requested kitties available!

For every kitten that is adopted another kitten will have a chance at a healthy happy life. Kitten season has been especially busy this year and we have been at capacity for some time now. Sadly this means people who want to help the cats and kittens in their area are being turned away because of limited resources.

More about this rescue

Our mission is to improve the lives of feral cats through education and action, following the humane methods of Trap-Neuter-Return, and thus treating every feral cat with the compassion and respect they deserve.

The Humane Answer: Trap-Neuter-Return
If you've ever seen cats in an alleyway eating out of dumpsters, or blending into the wild habitat of a wooded area, and wondered about their condition and how you could help them, read on...

Some of them, having been lost or abandoned, have found their way to a colony where they can survive amongst other felines. But the majority live out their lives as feral, or "wild", cats. Being either born in the wild and never having had human contact, or reverting to a wild state after having been abandoned; the great majority of feral cats cannot be tamed. Generally, attempts at taming or adoption of ferals prove to be fruitless. Our efforts can be realized one-hundred-fold if we do the greatest good for the greatest number of ferals by stopping the cycle of reproduction.

Communities can help these forgotten cats by providing them with food, water, shelter, and spaying/neutering services through the "Trap-Neuter-Return" full management program.

Briefly, TNR consists of the humane trapping, sterilization, and return of feral cats to their familiar habitat to be cared for daily by dedicated volunteers. Kittens under eight weeks and/or tame cats are placed into adoption programs.
