Since 1945 Cat Welfare’s mission has been 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. Felines not placed in forever homes live their lives in the care and comfort of our shelter.

As a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, membership dues help to pay for the care and feeding of around 300 felines waiting for permanent homes. Show your support of Cat Welfare and our feline friends by becoming a member!

Core Benefits

Members receive a membership card, access to discounts on tickets to CWA programs and events and six newsletters per year. After one year of membership, members who are at least 18 years of age are eligible to vote for Board members. Each membership allows ONE vote. After two years of membership, members are eligible to run for election for the Cat Welfare Association Board of Directors. Members are also welcome to attend Board meetings. Locations and times are posted to our events calendar.

Of course, the greatest benefit of all is that knowing that membership dues provide a funding source to give our feline friends the second chance they deserve.
