Adopting cats into caring, permanent homes; providing life-long care. food & shelter for homeless cats; & improving the lives of feral cats.
The Cat House is Lincoln's no-kill cat shelter, caring for around 150 cats at any given time. Here are a few of their stories:
CALI. A sweet torti, Cali came to TCH in December 2011 for hospice care. She no longer had a family to look after her, and her kidneys were failing her even though she was on subcutaneous fluids twice a week. She moved into the Penthouse where she would receive special care. Cali was started on daily fluids and other medication and was soon thriving and ruling the roost whenever possible! Almost 2.5 years later, Cali is the Queen of the Penthouse.
SMALL. Among all the special cats at TCH, one fluffy red-and-white tabby was featured last year during Give to Lincoln. We are pleased to announce that Small, who had been at TCH since 2006, was adopted into his very own loving home in 2014.
A HOME OF OUR OWN!!! Thanks to our donors and volunteers, TCH has purchased a building and will be moving in early 2015. The two-story building, which is located at 3633 O Street, will house the TCH shelter and adoption facility.
TCH is looking for professional advice/assistance regarding plumbing, heating, air conditioning, electrical, etc. Most of the renovation, however, will be completed by our hard-working volunteers. Any advice and assistance from the citizens of Lincoln and Lancaster County would be GREATLY appreciated.
One of the big advantages of the new building is the wonderful visibility on O Street. TCH hopes to increase adoptions and recruit more volunteers as a result.
As far as the cats are concerned, however, the biggest advantage will be the many windows in the building, which will give them a chance to watch the world go by and to enjoy the natural light!
THE CAT HOUSE, Lincoln's no-kill feline shelter, is operated entirely by volunteers from Lincoln and the surrounding area. It is financially supported by money from adoption fees, retail sales, and, most importantly, through donations. No government funds are received.
YOUR DONATION will help The Cat House spay or neuter, vaccinate, and microchip hundreds of cats and kittens, both domesticated and feral, from our community. By stressing the importance of spaying or neutering to the public, we help to prevent the birth and death of thousands of felines every year in Lincoln.
