Foster homes needed

Currently in need of foster homes for kittens! We have twelve 8-9 week old kittens we would like to find foster placement for. It would be for approx one month - all supplies and vet care are provided. These kittens will need socializing as several of them are quite skittish. If you think you can help with two or more kittens or have further questions please contact us at Thank you!

Thank you!

We just wanted to send out a sincere thank you to every one who has continued to support us with our sanctuary cats and our TNR (Trap,Neuter, Return) program.  We appreciate it so very much!

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.

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.

News - Please click read more to view our full statement

After 10 years and 1200 adoptions we are sad to announce that we will no longer be operating as both a rescue and a sanctuary; from this date forward we will remain a sanctuary only. We will continue to care for the 60+ cats that reside with us either due to advanced age, medical conditions or behavioral concerns. We will also continue to care for our feral cats that are in established colonies. Any cat that we have ever adopted out is always welcome to come back to the sanctuary, so if for any reason you must relinquish your adopted Happy Cat please contact us.
