Cat Shelter

America's first

animal shelter

Their Home Until They're Home

At Gifford, cats are free to roam and play. They nap in sunny windows, get plenty of exercise, and enjoy tons of love and attention while they wait for their forever homes. A no-kill shelter, Gifford believes that all cats should have a chance to live their lives free of pain and fear. No matter their story, every Gifford cat has a future to look forward to. And until they find their new homes, they'll spend their days in bright, open environments, getting all the love they need!


Volunteers are the heart and life force of Gifford Cat Shelter, helping us provide care 365 days a year. Volunteers enable us to expand our reach, impact more cats, and in turn – save more lives.


Each day, we shelter cats who've been abandoned, abused, and neglected. We take them in and give them what they desperately need. But we can't save cats and find them loving homes without YOU.


You know what kind of cat would fit within your home and family.  We know each of our cats and what they need to live a happy, healthy life. We work with you to make the perfect match.
