We are a limited admissions, no-kill rescue that believes in helping every kitty we can, by ensuring it will not reproduce an unwanted litter of kittens and by also helping those that are abandoned, unwanted and homeless find a loving forever family home. Every life matters! The ASPCA estimates that approximately 2.7 million healthy, and perfectly adoptable pets are euthanized each year. Of that number 70% are kittens and cats. These numbers are heartbreaking! With your help, we can prevent this from happening by helping reduce these numbers.
They also run a thrift shop to support the cats -- very neat, and all at the same place. Donated items are put up for sale at insanely good prices, and ALL of the proceeds go towards caring for the cats and helping people in the community afford to get their cats neutered or spayed via a voucher program.

We accept new and gently used items for resale in our thrift store, please do not donate broken or non-working items as it costs us money to throw them out and it takes away from what we can spend on the kitties. We accept small household items (no large furniture or appliances), clothing, books, animal supplies, jewelry, collectibles and other assorted small items.
We are not able to accept large items due to the limited space in our thrift store.
You can take your donations to the back donation/volunteer door from 11am to 3pm, Monday through Friday (we have someone in that room during these hours that can unlock the door and take your donations in).
After 3pm or on weekends, please go to the front of the Thrift Store and let one of our cashiers/volunteers know that you need to bring a donation to the back door so that we can have someone unlock that door and let you in.
You can take the kitties out of their cages to give them some love, and they have three heavily-windowed rooms where the cats aren't caged at all. They rotate the kitties so that no cat is ever caged for long.
As for adoptions, all of the kitties have the following:
- Already spayed or neutered
- Tested for Feline Leukemia
- Tested for Feline AIDS
- Treated for worms
- Treated for fleas
- Free vet exam at Willamette Valley Animal Hospital or Neighborhood Animal Hospital
DONATIONS can be made to help this wonderful charity HERE . They're all set up for PayPal and various credit cards, and even have monthly plans if you have the resources to do so! Right now they're doing a fundraiser for the upcoming flood of kittens that they always get at this time of year, which you can read about on the Salem Friends of Felines Main Page .
