Catnip Casa Cat Refuge provides care for cats that require extensive rehab or lifelong pawspice care due to age, disease, or disabilities that do not allow them to remain in their home or community due to medical needs or behavioral challenges. These cats are not adoptable in most shelters. In the case of community cats, they are unable to function in their natural environment. The cats we accept have the potential to live well with specialized care. We strive to keep their environment safe and normal while addressing their unique needs, including rehabilitation and caregiver training and support to adopt them into loving homes whenever possible.
We educate owners, caregivers, professionals, and the public, about caring for cats with challenges caused by age, disease, disabilities, or terminal illness. We strive to develop a network of persons, services, foster homes, and resources, that benefit the community by keeping senior and special needs cats out of shelters. We mentor trappers and actively support TNR (trap/neuter/release) for community cats.
