We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides a permanent, loving home to blind and special needs cats from local shelters who are deemed unadoptable or at-risk in NW Arkansas and beyond.
Caring ... Advocating ... Educating
Blind Hope Cat Sanctuary was formed to address the need for a permanent, cage-free home for cats deemed "unadoptable" by animal shelters. Many shelters often euthanize cats who are blind, injured, FIV+, elderly or have other issues that label them as unadoptable. We only accept special-needs cats from local shelters so we can continue to provide the high quality care they require and deserve.
We support and promote the value of ALL feline lives through spay/neuter programs and by promoting Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) as the most humane method available to control the issue of stray cat overpopulation.
We also provide free educational workshops for the public on proper methods of conducting TNR in their community and Caring for Orphaned Kittens as a means to reduce the burden to shelters and prevent euthanasia due to lack of space.
The sanctuary is just that... a sanctuary for these cats that may have had a troubled past but desperately love/want the human interaction. The sanc is designed for the cats first and foremost. Access to hidey holes, plenty of room for exercise, sleeping bunks mounted to walls for them to jump/explore, access to inside/outside. At times it can be heartbreaking to see them, but so worth it to hear them purr after being petted.
