description
Hearts That Purr Feline Guardians is a specialized, feline-only rescue organization. We do not operate a cat shelter in the usual sense. Here, we understand the unique needs of cats that were never unwanted but have been essentially orphaned. Our programs and priorities are designed to carefully transition cats, especially older ones, that are used to a secure and loving home and give them the next best thing when their owner passes away or must enter a hospice or nursing home. We use private, low-density residential groups and foster homes to shelter these cats in need until perfect new homes are found.
In the case of very elderly felines or those with chronic health conditions or disabilities, we provide loving, individualized care in a peaceful, home-like setting for the remainder of their lives. Whether it be lifetime care in our beautiful feline retirement home, a new home through our strict adoption program, or placement in a loving foster home through our unique “Senior Citizens and Senior Kittizens” foster program, we always put the best interest of each of our feline residents above all else, just as you would with your beloved cat.
