Per the guidelines as set forth by the Department of Agriculture, the majority of the cats and kittens that come into our rescue come from animal shelters. We do take in a small number of strays from the streets on a case-by-case basis when we have space available which also includes securing foster home availability. We do not accept out of state animals. Our rescue will always give first priority to animals that are in high kill shelters. Please refer to found a cat for additional resources on this topic.
