Gem City Kitties Cat rescue in Dayton, OH

Gem City Kitties is a Non-Profit rescue that works in conjunction with Gem City Catfe. Gem City Catfe is a Cat Cafe in Dayton Ohio which combines coffee and delicious baked goods with cat interaction and adoption. The Cafe side is completely separate from the Cat side and there are separate HVAC systems which keeps us allergy friendly!

We envision Dayton as a place in which all of our feline friends are valued, protected, and treated with empathy, and compassion.We seek to end the euthanasia of healthy animals due to overpopulation through adoption and education. Our commitment to community outreach and education-based programs highlights these important issues:

•Reducing re-homing of pets for behavioral concerns through proper training techniques

•Spaying and neutering owned pets

•Coexisting responsibly with community cats

•Adopting rather than purchasing pets

•Explaining why declawing is inhumane and often creates health and behavioral complications, and providing nonsurgical, humane alternatives ​

•Showcasing enrichment for indoor cats and recommending owned cats to live indoors
