We survive solely on the generosity of donations and gifts from people just like you. Please donate today!


Once-Upon-A-Time, there was a CRAZY CAT LADY who decided to start a Cat and Kitten Rescue 🙂

The local humane societies and animal shelters were at and past capacity and could not accept any more cats or kittens. People with strays or needing to surrender their cat(s) were placed on waiting lists with no end in sight.

With lots of help from our foster families, volunteers, Pet Supplies Plus in Petoskey and Gaylord,  Family Farm and Home in Charlevoix, Dr. Jeffrey Powers and the staff at Jordan Valley Animal Clinic and our few, but awesome, donors, JUST CATS saved and re-homed over 30 cats and kittens from April 2017 to December 2017 and over 35 more during 2018. We are currently past 30 so far in 2019 🙂  Help us continue our mission and Donate Today!


We try to help the community by offering the following:

  • In-house solutions familes to try so they can keep their furry family member and maintain a safe and healthy environment for everyone,
  • Finding foster families for cats and kittens in need,
  • Finding adoptive families for homeless cats and kittens,
  • Cooperation with veterinary clinics and other humane societies and shelters to find safe shelter for homeless cats and kittens,
  • Partnering with veterinarians to offer affordable/low-cost spay and neuter programs for the community,
  • Helping caretakers of feral/stray cat colonies spay/neuter their cats and provide safe shelter and food for their population,
  • etc.
