Animals In Distress is dedicated to the care and placement of homeless cats and kittens on a year round basis. At Animals In Distress our cats are not ordinarily caged and there are no time limits placed on residency. We'll never "put down" for any reason other than a severe health problem or quality of life issue for the cat. Our mission at Animals In Distress is to provide a safe haven at all times, rescue and place stray or abandoned felines in loving homes. Cats who are truly in distress are our first priority. When we have room, we also take in felines from individuals who no longer want or can be responsible for their feline companion. In either case, unless the animal's medical history is known and documented, new additions are brought to a veterinarian for FIV and feline leukemia testing, rabies, distemper vaccinations, and when necessary - spaying or neutering procedures.

Because we strongly advocate spaying or neutering, we offer assistance in order to help cats live longer, healthier lives and to help decrease the overwhelming amount of unwanted animals in our communities. Please contact us for more information if you need assistance for arranging a spay or neuter for your pet.

Animals In Distress is a non-profit organization staffed solely by volunteers who are at the shelter no less than twice a day, every day of the week. Our volunteers participate in the feeding, cleaning and general duties of care associated with providing an environment of love and well being to our residents.

We strongly encourage you to consider a shelter animal first when it's time to add a furry companion to your life. Please visit our adoption info page for details on adoption procedures and a link to see our current list of adoptable cats. =^..^=
