Who We Are

The Scratching Post is a nonprofit, no-kill shelter for stray and abandoned cats. Our shelter is run almost entirely by volunteers, a dedicated group of people who work every day to care for the cats and find them permanent homes.

In the spring of 2008 we moved into our new shelter building at 6948 Plainfield Road. Just two doors down from our old shelter, the new facility is a vast improvement in conditions for both the cats and our volunteers. See pictures of the new shelter here.

Adoptable Cats

We add photos of our cats to this list as the cats cooperate with us, so there will always be cats at The Scratching Post who are not profiled here. We encourage you to visit the shelter to meet all of our cats!
