Founded in 1999, Tabby's Place rescues cats from hopeless situations. We embrace the neediest cats regardless of age, most medical issues, or temperament, making us a harbor of hope for the most desperate. Most of our cats go on to be adopted; but those who aren't find a loving home for life at Tabby's Place. We do not choose cats based on “adoptability,” so we are a haven for those cats who nobody else could take. At any given time, 30-40% of our kitties have chronic conditions like diabetes, heart disease and paraplegia. We're honored to cherish these brave cats exactly as they are. We strive to treat each person and cat with respect, compassion, and generosity of spirit. The phrase “Tabby's Place family” isn't a cliché; our donors, volunteers, staff and cats are a true community of love.
