Who We Are

Cats off Broadway got its name in 1998. We were born out of a great need for a second shelter in our area. Calls from all over came in. Seeking our help with found and abandoned and injured cats and kittens. The first year we rescued 35 kittens. They were all adopted to good homes.

Each year the numbers of calls have grown, as did the need for a shelter. We operated out of pocket and our first building was a rented garage. It housed 13 kittens, a homemade rabbit hutch, a ten-pound bag of food and a gallon jug for fresh water. Vaccinations and antibiotics were transported in a small cooler. In 2002 we established a permanent home and shelter for our homeless critters.
At any given time we care for as many as 75 to 100 pets. In 2006 we had 194 adoptions.

The success of Cats off Broadway is carried on through donations and adoption fees and the unconditional love by a handful of dedicated volunteers.
Our operating costs have soared to over $40,000 annually.
Our love and respect for these little animals is never ending. Our hearts and our souls surround Cats off Broadway.
