    Frequently Asked Questions

    At Fur Ever Home Cat Sanctuary, we prioritize the safety and well-being of our feline residents. For this reason, we do not publicly disclose our physical address in order to prevent unplanned drop-offs. Our sanctuary operates at its current maximum capacity, which means we are providing care for a significant number of cats. While we have space available for more cats and would love to help every feline in need, we are dependent on the support of our community to ensure we can provide proper care for each feline in need.

    It is also important to note that Fur Ever Home Cat Sanctuary is specifically designed to provide a safe haven for unadoptable cats and those unlikely to survive in the wild. Many of our feline friends come from local humane societies that have determined them to be unadoptable and at risk of euthanasia.  We are grateful for your understanding and encourage you to join us in our mission to give these cats the life they deserve.

    As a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, we have received tax-exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). This means that when you contribute to our cause, your generous donations may be deductible from your taxable income, potentially reducing the amount of taxes you owe. Your support not only helps provide care and shelter for our feline residents but also comes with the added benefit of potential tax savings. We recommend consulting with a qualified tax professional to understand the specific guidelines and requirements for claiming tax deductions on charitable donations. Thank you for considering supporting our sanctuary and for making a difference in the lives of these precious cats.

    Yes and this will likely fall under a “qualified sponsorship payment”.  IRC Section 513(i) defines a “qualified sponsorship payment” as any payment made by any person engaged in a trade or business with respect to which there is no arrangement or expectation that such person will receive any substantial return benefit other than the use or acknowledgement of the name or logo (or product lines) of such person’s trade or business in connection with the activities of the organization that receives such payment. We recommend consulting with a qualified tax professional to understand the specific guidelines and requirements for claiming tax deductions on qualified sponsorship payments.

    Our spacious sanctuary is composed of a total of 4 sections that have unique fencing to help keep our felines in and predatory wildlife out.  The exterior perimeter is also equipped with an electric fence to prevent larger predators from digging under the fencing.

    New cats are kept in segregation until they have been spayed/neutered and received any needed veterinary care before being released into our larger areas.  Care takers live on site at the sanctuary and feed, clean sand boxes, and visit with the cats multiple times daily.  In addition to our live stream we also have extensive additional security camera coverage around our facility and gated entrances into it.
