We rescue & find homes for homeless cats.

We partner with rescues who save cats at risk of euthanasia in high kill shelters and cats facing homelessness on the streets, and house them in our cafes. Once they are at our cafes, we care for our cats and work to get them adopted until they find their homes. As our cats are adopted, our partners bring us more cats who are rescued from risk of euthanasia. One day, we hope to be a part of the reason why no cats are euthanized simply due to a lack of space in animal shelters.

Reduced Euthanasia Rates

By housing cats who have nowhere else to go, we reduce the number of cats who are killed in the cities we operate in simply because there's no more space for them.

Increased Adoptions

By housing homeless cats in a unique space and marketing their profiles in a different way than shelters do, we significantly increase the exposure shelter cats get to potential adopters, which in turn, increases the adoption rates at our partner rescues. 

Improved Lives for Homeless Cats

Cats who are homeless on the streets are usually experiencing high disease rates, and cats who are in cages at shelters are usually experiencing an extremely high level of stress, anxiety, and depression. By housing these cats in a comfortable, safe, enriching, and nurturing environment, Crumbs & Whiskers drastically improves the lives of the cats in our care and gives them a loving temporary home while they wait to find their forever families.
