Farm/Acreage Cats Looking for homes!

Are you looking for a cat for your barn or workshop?  We have several healthy spayed/neutered, vaccinated cats looking for a new home.  Many of these cats are feral (or semi-feral) and make excellent mousers.  The shyer cats we like to send in pairs where possible but we do have a few tame cats that would be great shop cats or a buddy to another indoor/outdoor cat.  For more details please contact us at  Thank you!

Feature Adoptable Cat

Rena This beautiful girl came to Happy Cat over a yr ago after she was found emaciated & almost frozen to death outside. She survived and has done remarkably well with no lasting effects from the low body temp she was found with. She is a wonderful cat, very cuddly, quiet, clean and so sweet.  She does ok with other cats once settled. Great with kids & dogs any size. Please consider giving Rena the loving forever home she deserves. Rena will be going up for showcasing at PetSmart (Sunridge location in Calgary) starting April 4, 2014 :)

Happy Cat Sanctuary is Full

Our sanctuary is currently full  so we have compiled a list of other organizations and suggestion on what to do if you have found or lost a cat or are looking to rehome your own pet. Please email us if you have any further questions.


Over the last couple of years we have taken in quite a few shy cats. Our main volunteers are able to pet, scratch and handle these cats as they have gained their trust over a long period of time; they are just shy with strangers. These cats can be hard to adopt out as they cannot go to adoption events or get showcased at PetSmart, relying simply on one picture and a brief description via our website to get noticed.

Donations Greatly Needed

The Happy Cat Sanctuary is in great need of donated cat litter (clumping or non-clumping), money for our veterinary expenses and canned food!!!  Any donation is greatly appreciated and always put to good use, 100% goes to the cats and we do issue tax receipts for donations.  To arrange for drop off or pick up of donations (pick up only available in Strathmore) please call us 403-804-8571 or send us an email to  Thank you so much!


How old should a kitten be when it goes to a new home?

Please take the time to read this very informative article. All too often kittens are given away at 5-8 weeks of age by many who claim they are weaned and "ready to go". This is not only untrue, but can often be dangerous for the physical and mental health of a new kitten.
