Become a Sustainer

Sustainers help us sustain life.

Would you give up a coffee drink a month to help save a cat’s life? What about a night out?

From $5 to $500, our sustainers donate every month to help our refuge and cats survive.

Can the cats depend on you?

Sustainers are people with big hearts who believe in our mission, but often don't have the time available to contribute. So, they show their support by making a monthly financial commitment to our rescue.

Sustainers are extraordinary people we can depend on. They provide us the stability to know we can feed our cats, perform life-saving procedures, and save cats who otherwise would have no one to help them.

  • For just $5 a month, you can cover the cost of a veterinary appointment and life saving medicine for a cat in need!

  • For $10 a month, you can cover the cost of feeding our cat sanctuary for a week (we have lots of hungry kitties!)

  • For $25 a month, you can cover the cost of the supplies needed to provide shelter for the cats in our sanctuary, giving them a place safe from the elements.

  • For $50 a month, you can provide flea prevention medicine for all of the cats at our sanctuary.

  • For $100 a month, you can provide a life saving surgery for a cat in need!
