PET ADOPTION AND EDUCATION. Our mission is to help homeless and abandoned shelter cats spend less time in pet store cages while we find FURever homes for them. All cats/kittens in our homey shelter are adoptable. Visitors can pet and play with the cats or adopt one, which gives us opportunities to educate them about cat behavior and pet ownership.
We are Kentucky's only nonprofit cat cafe. It is part cat adoption program and part coffee-shop. We are not a business like most cat cafes are. More than 650 cats and kittens have found FUR-ever homes through our program since 2018. All animals are tested for disease, updated on vaccines, spayed/neutered, and microchipped. We work with 5 local rescue groups that provide cats. Visitors can pet/play cats or adopt one. The facility has 3 large colorful rooms inside a 100-year old Highlands bungalow. Cats are free-roaming. It is their home 24/7 until they find the right person or family to adopt them.
We have a team of about 50 volunteers, from all ages and all walks of life. Many have been with us since we opened five years ago. Our volunteers come on different days and do different kinds of jobs to help fulfill our mission. We all have one thing in common: The love of cats to have a good life.
We have a 12-foot mural painted by Liz Richter on the side of our blue house that says: "Time spent with cats is never wasted." We are not sure who originally said this quote, but we believe it to be true. Please email if you have questions before applying: email@example.com
