Mission Statement

Cat Guardians, Inc -- a no-kill, cage-less cat shelter in Lombard, IL -- strives to rescue and reduce the stray and feral cat population in DuPage County, practicing TNR for ferals and finding homes for adoptable cats.

Description

About Cat Guardians Cat Guardians, Inc was opened in 1988 by director Kathy Blackwell in a two-story white clapboard house near the corner of St. Charles and Westmore Rd. in Lombard, Illinois. The shelter has seen over 1500 cats adopted from the shelter, where they have been nursed back to health or at least avoided the need to scavenge garbage or prowl for prey in the wilds of suburban Chicago.

Cat Guardians does not employ euthanasia, except in extreme circumstances in which medical conditions are such that prolonging a cat's life would no longer be humane. Due to its no-kill policy, Cat Guardians is usually filled to its legal capacity of feline residents. Today, some 50 cats and a rotating population of kittens reside at Cat Guardians shelter. Although some cats and kittens are caged for their protection (due to illness, skittishness, aggression or their young age), most roam freely, having the freedom to play or nap in their choice spots.

Some of the cats, adorable though they are, have not been adopted or are considered unadoptable due to their advanced age or chronic medical problems. These cats are assured of a loving, permanent home at Cat Guardians.

The daily activities of the shelter are feeding the cats, administering medication, cleaning the litter boxes and the shelter, are performed with the help of volunteers and funded through supporters like you.
