The Cat House on the Kings
The Cat House on the Kings is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that receives no public or government funding, and relies entirely on charitable donations to carry out its mission. Located on 12 acres along the Kings River in Parlier, CA, SE of Fresno, since its founding 17 years ago, "The Cat House" has saved over 18,000 cats and 5,000 dogs, and spayed and neutered over 40,000 more animals. and currently cares for more than 700 cats and kittens in a unique, cage-free environment!
At The Cat House, our mission is to:
- provide a no-cage, no-kill sanctuary for feral and abandoned cats and kittens for the State of California, primarily serving the Central Valley;
- facilitate the adoption of cats (primarily), dogs and other rescued animals into safe, loving, healthy and permanent homes;
- educate the public on how to become directly involved in improving the quality of animal welfare;
- offer low cost spay and neuter referrals.
Every year, The Cat House adopts out approximately 500 cats (and some dogs) and assists several thousand people who call our sanctuary for assistance. We also advise thousands of people from around the world who contact us through our web site (we have sponsors as far away as Denmark and Australia) and at our local, public events. We make referrals for low cost spay/neuter services, offer assistance and education in behavioral problems with cats, and assist people find homes for their cats.
We are best known for our sanctuary, where we care for over 700 unwanted cats and kittens. Individuals surrender their cats to us and, for a monthly fee (up to a maximum of $2000), we provide lifetime support and care. Upon arrival at The Cat House, every cat is given any necessary medical care, and is spayed/neutered and vaccinated. They are then placed in cottages where they can become familiar with their surroundings. Once they're comfortable with their new digs, they are released onto the sanctuary grounds, and can roam about at will. The grounds are fully fenced and secure.
All of our cats are available for adoption. We do our utmost to find the best possible homes for our cats; none are euthanized. The cats live out their lives until they are either adopted or die of old age — however long that may be.
