Feline Hope Shelter is ‘Looking for Land’
Feline Hope is the local “no-kill” shelter. It does not believe in euthanizing healthy or treatable animals. When a cat is admitted to Feline Hope, it remains there until a good home is found. Homes have even been provided for cats that have been tested and found positive for feline aids and feline leukemia. Due to the ‘no kill’ philosophy and limited space, the shelter is often full with kitties waiting to come in.Feline Hope needs a piece of land to build a new larger shelter in order to better serve our community.
If anyone is interested in donating a piece of land or knows of a piece of land reasonably priced, please call the shelter at 252-255-3365. It must be zoned commercial.
Feline Hope was established in 1995 to provide food, medical care, and loving homes for homeless kittens and cats. The shelter has existed solely through the work of dedicated volunteers, donations for admitting and adopting cats, and fundraisers. Feline Hope has been very successful in the adoption process. We have taken in and adopted out almost 3,400 cats and kittens. Approximately 30% of all cats that enter the shelter have been spayed or neutered. All other cats are tested for Feline Leukemia and Feline Aids, vaccinated for rabies, and spayed or neutered upon entry to the shelter. In the case of kittens that are too young for spaying and neutering, a kitten voucher is given to the adopter to receive Feline Hope discount rates when the kitten is old enough to be spayed or neutered.
Feline Hope is a “free roaming” shelter, the cats are placed in large areas with cat walks, kitty condos, beds, and toys. They frolic with each other and keep each other company. There are windows for the cats to sit and peer outside and large decks for them to enjoy the fair weather.
Some cats are a little aggressive and do not enjoy being with other cats. Feline Hope has a list of volunteers who provide foster homes for these types of cats. Foster care is also undertaken for special circumstances such as medical needs, kittens under 6 months of age, and when the shelter is full.
Feline Hope would like to encourage all pet owners to spay and neuter their cats and dogs and also any stray cats that they may be feeding and intend to continue providing food.
