Our Mission

Cat Welfare Association is dedicated to the care of and education about cats and kittens. Our pledge is to cherish, nurture and provide veterinary care for homeless, abused, injured, and abandoned felines.

We strive to find each cat an appropriate, safe and loving home, allowing those not placed to live their lives in the care and comfort of our shelter.




Our primary intake is currently limited to pregnant, injured/ill friendly stray cats and cats adopted from Cat Welfare. Please call the shelter to schedule an intake appointment.  We do not schedule intake appointments via email.

Friendly stray cats not meeting the above criteria may be admitted to the shelter as space becomes available.
