A Proudly Clean, Helpful Shelter - Always

posted 4 years ago

During my six years as an employee with the National Cat Protection Society, I can honestly assure you that our cages have always been quite large and completely clean. In fact, many visitors comment on our cleanliness - and we’re proud of that fact. Also, our senior cats roam free in our retirement center.

In response to the 1-week-old kittens you mentioned, we certainly commend your efforts to help. However, they wouldn’t have been safe in a shelter. Kittens’ undeveloped immune systems can’t fight off germs, so they need bottle-feeding in a foster home. Since you couldn’t provide this care, I imagine that the lady who answered the phone suggested a city shelter only as the very last resort.

If we took in every cat and kitten people brought us, we’d need to euthanize them to make space like city shelters. We hope you understand that and altogether, our reasoning for sadly forgoing the relinquishment.

Pros: Cleanliness, openness, safe relinquishment

Cons: None, as we work hard to prevent any

A Totally Supportive Cat Shelter

posted 4 years ago

I'm not sure where Claviclexoxo was - the National Cat Protection Society I know treats their kitties extremely well. I imagine they take in all of the cats and kittens they possibly can. That's why they're there - but how can they when cat overpopulation is extreme and shelter space is finite?

The staff and volunteers keep the pens extremely clean, routinely give love and attention to the cats (in larger, cleaner pens than I've seen at Humane Societies), and even offer a huge, completely open building for the retirement/senior cats. This building is incredible - it has a pier with little steps to it, waves made from aluminum and a scratching post that reaches to the ceiling! That said, I really don't think Claviclexoxo’s groomer was at the same shelter.

By the way, they've been around since 1968. As a doting mom of three cats, I get their newsletter, go to their events and like them on Facebook - and they’re trying like crazy to get their kitties adopted while making space for incoming ones. With as much as they do for cats, their business is going to go on - helping countless homeless kitties - far into the future. Honestly, I can't believe that anybody would want to get in their way.

Pros: Cat care, adoption, retirement

Cons: None
