Even if you live far away, even in another country; even if you can't foster, adopt or volunteer, you can still be an animal hero.
When you become a Helping Hero to one of our cats, your virtual adoption or sponsorship will help ensure funding for our permanent residents food, medicines, and veterinary care during the remaining time they have left (many of our animals are special needs including elderly and hospice). Your assistance with their care enables us to still be able to intake cats that would otherwise would be euthanized at local shelters.
We receive no funding other than donations. We have no paid staff, only volunteers (including our Board), so 100% of your sponsorship donation goes directly to their care (food, veterinary care, medicine, litter, flea treatment).
As their Hero, you will receive a personal email every month from them with pictures and videos, and information about how they are doing.
YOU can start AND end the sponsorship at ANY time. YOU set the monthly sponsorship amount you want to give. You do NOT need a PayPal account. When you click Sponsor Me on one of the animals below, the PayPal Donate button will allow you to setup the recurring donation via any major credit card. You do NOT have to ask us, nor explain anything; we will always understand and be grateful for as long as you can be their Hero.
Hi, I'm Ralphie and I'm new here. I'm an FIV+ Senior cat. I'm very loving, and just want to be loved. I had a home but my person abandoned me at a feral colony. Thankfully the colony caretaker called Mr.Frisky because I was scared, and being beat up by the cats there who did not want to share their food. I was very hungry and cold as well as frightened. I've bene here since November 2nd while they assess my health since I'm FIV+. I'm happy to be safe in the comfy and warm intake room with plenty of soft warm places to sleep, a window to gaze out of and toys and food!
Jimmy is one of the ferals living on our rescue property. He has become less skittish, and now hangs around most of the day and evening, coming up on the porch at night where we have warm houses, a cat post, and (more) food and water. He is still not touchable, and you can't get too close, but he seems to want to trust us. He's clearly had a hard life, and may have some vision problems. He needs a forever sponsor.
Hi, I'm Princess. I was less than 1 year old when I was thrown out by my owners for getting pregnant (they never got me spayed). Fortunately I found Mr.Frisky's rescue with 2 of my kittens that hadn't died after birth but sadly Mr.Frisky despite how hard they tried could not save them. Mr.Frisky got me spayed, and all my vaccinations and I have many cat friends here I love to play with! Because I went through so much trauma, I have not had any luck with adoption so I will beg a permanent resident here where I feel safe and will not run away.
These just 3 of the ferals on our acreage we feed (Jimmy, Oscar, and Inky). The others are too scared to come close enough to photograph. Their feeding stations and warmth shelters are tucked in the woods. You can sponsor their colony here to help provide their food and spay neuter funding (for new arrivals). They get dry food out all the time plus wet food plates twice a day, and we need donations of more heated cat houses for the cold icy winters.
Hi, I'm Paddy and I'm the Original Grumpy Cat. I was a feral trying to survive on the streets when I was rescued by Mr.Frisky. I still hate people because of how mean they were to me when I was on the streets, so I am not adoptable but I am happy I live inside the sanctuary (my forever home now) where it's warm and safe and I have cat friends I love here, and plenty of food. I purr when I get treats but I hiss and spit and swat if you try to touch me, but fortunately Mr.Frisky understands me and gives me loving care.
Chewy came to us as an underweight and ill kitten along with Luke. Sadly Luke passed away from Wet FIP but thankfully Chewy survived and is growing fast. He has finally found his voice instead of silent mews, and now loudly demands treats including in the middle of the night! Chewy is a permanent resident due to special medical needs.
Pumpkin was a tiny kitten only a few weeks old that we found within the woods on our acreage, wandering around, shivering and starving (it was early November). We scooped her up and got her immediately inside into our emergency intake room where she quarantined until exam and vaccinations. She is adoptable as a pair with Chewy as they have become very bonded, running and playing together all the time.
Linus is a Former Feral. He is now a fabulous lap cat and premier attention hog. He was rescued at the same time as Paddy (who considers him a traitor since he became friendly with humans). It took us 6 years to get Linus from feral to friend. He is a senior now, so he will just remain here permanently especially as he is so bonded to Silver cat now. Like Silver, he also has some age related issues.
Silver is our resident polydactyl and is 15 now. We rescued him when he was 5, after finding him injured under a parked car. We got him the surgery he needed, vaccinations, neutering, and brought him back to the long term foster room. It took him 3 months to decide it was safe to leave the room, and 6 months to decide it was safe to be seen! It was 2 years before he made a sound. Now he is a loving, snuggle bug who makes quite loud sounds when he wants a treat!! Due to his age, he will remain here permanently to ensure his senior care now that he has several age related issues.
Vladimir cat was found in a parking lot in a box at just a few weeks old, along with 2 siblings. Vladimir became a permanent resident due to his medical needs. He is a sweet loving young cat, who wants to be friends with everyone - even grumpy Paddy! He needs a lot of hydration to stay healthy, so he requires a lot of broths and squeezeups (he's not very good about drinking water). He loves to run and play with the younger cats here like Princess and Chewy (much to the relief of our seniors!)
