Castle Cat Rescue
MEOW"..................CHARLIE is looking for his special home. Charlie is totally bored here at the shelter and NEEDS your help to find a forever home!
We occasionally have courtesy posts to help place pets that need a new home (available directly from owner). You may adopt or see the kitties available by e-mailing Jane at firstname.lastname@example.org or the fosterer/owner listed for the kitty of interest. YOU can help by passing our kitty photos along to someone interested in a pet and help us place our WONDERFUL kitties. Our posted kitties would love to be in their FOREVER homes by DEC Holiday season, They want YOU to be their FOREVER home.
We are winding down our rescue operations, and just taking care of cats in hand. We have elderly and special needs kitties here to support. We are leaving the site open for people who have adopted from us to find us again. We do courtesy posts and will try to match cats needing homes with people who want cats, but not with our own shelter pulls. if you need low cost spay neuter, you can contact us and use the clinic we use in woodbridge run by Pets Ltd. on sundays.

Our Featured Pet***********************
Charlie is a great cat who was found starving in a neighborhood where no one claimed him. He is nice and very friendly kitty who loves to be in an outdoor run and is attracted to people who garden. He stays indoor here at the shelter. He is current with shots, tested, and neutered. Contact Jane at email@example.com for more information.
Castle Cats is looking for a volunteer to put budget entries into excel. WE are also looking for a volunteer to re-upholster our shelter couch and chair. We need help organizing supplies at the shelter. We also need a volunteer to mop and do laundry every other week. We would also appreciate any donations of food, supplies, or veterinary medicines. we need help with accounting and putting numbers in computer program. If you have purchased food that your cat will not eat, we can always use it. Please send monetary donations to help our senior kitties. We have several who are 17 yr old kitties who need extra vet care. Send donations to Castle Cats at 4121 Elizabeth La, Fairfax, VA 22032. We thank you in advance. The kitties need your support.
Who We Are
Castle Cats is a very small rescue and near retirement. We are non-profit and all volunteer. We care for and rehabilitate un-owned or abandoned cats. We educate the public on the virtues of spay - neuter and our goal is to help shelters in our area transition to no-kill shelters. We rescue from kill shelter and abandoned cats from the streets. We place tame cats in new homes. We strongly support direct adoptions from your local county shelter and adoptions from other non-profit groups on Petfinder. We work hand-in-hand with other rescue groups to help share resources. We spay-neuter stray or feral cats brought to our attention, to the extent that our resources allow. We are unable to take any give-up kitties at this time, but will generally do curtesy posts if you are in our area and meet certain requirements.
Adopting a friend
We seek responsible, good pet owners. We hope we are not overly intrusive, but do like to feel confident that the pet in your care will be safe and cared for. Adopting a young cat or kitten is a 15 yr commitment. All cats over 4-5 months old are spayed/neutered before placement. We have a strict spay-neuter policy. We disclose a full medical history. A contract is signed in the adoption process and there is an adoption fee. You can either contact us first or fill out an inquiry form and email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will contact you. Click here to download our pet inquiry (application) form.
