Cats R Us is a non-profit 501(c)3 registered charity, which operates two small shelters in the Annapolis, Maryland area. Our main effort is to reduce the community cat population through methods such as TNR (Trap, Neuter, and Return). TNR is a full community cat population management strategy in which community cats are humanely trapped, vaccinated, sterilized, and ear-tipped for identification by veterinarians. We DO NOT take feral cats as we have no facility to house them. We DO NOT take owner surrendered cats.
Cats R Us welcomes visitors to our shelters by appointment only. Our shelters are small, private, residential shelters. We endeavor to be good neighbors and are therefore not open to the public. If you would like to meet one of our cats in the shelter, please email email@example.com These shelters are home to cats who are domesticated/tame and which have been abandoned by previous owners. We are a NO KILL facility and these cats will stay with us as long as it takes for them to find their forever home.
We have an "open" shelter. This means the cats are not in cages, they are free to roam about and interact with each other, they have cat trees, windows to look out of and all the creature comforts of a home.
Most of our kittens are in foster homes for better socialization and more attentive care. We are always in need of foster homes. If you might be interested in fostering please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. We also welcome any new volunteers who would like to come and spend down time with our wonderful cats. It is an enjoyable, relaxing time and the kitties always welcome a cuddle and warm lap.
All of our cats are spayed or neutered BEFORE being placed in a permanent home, even kittens. This way we can guarantee that we will NOT contribute to the population explosion that is currently a huge problem in the U.S. All of our cats and kittens have been evaluated by a veterinarian and given the proper vaccines and if necessary treated for parasites like worms or fleas.
Our adoption fee for cats less than one year old is $120 for one, $200 for two. Cats older than one year old are $100 for a single cat and $180 for two cats. Exotic cats are $150 each. If you are gone from home for an extended period during the day, and desire to adopt a kitten, please consider adopting two and share in the wonderful enjoyment two kitties bring to your life. It is not much more of an expense and you will be delighted (and comforted) in knowing that they have each other while you are away!
All donations to Cats R Us are tax deductible, we are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We are an entirely volunteer organization -- no one is paid a salary -- so you can feel confident your hard-earned money will go only towards the care of our rescued cats.
