Feline Hope Animal Shelter, Inc.

Feline Hope Animal Shelter, Inc.

Feline Hope Shelter, Inc. was established in 1995 to provide food, medical care, and loving homes for homeless companion kittens and cats.

The shelter has existed solely through the work of dedicated volunteers and donations for admitting and adopting cats. Frequent fund raising events have generated cash to build a new shelter.

 Mission Statement Feline Hope Animal Shelter, Inc. is a non-profit, "no-kill", all volunteer organization dedicated to providing food, medical care, and loving homes for homeless cats.

Unique Features Feline Hope Shelter is a "no-kill" shelter that does not believe in the Euthanizing of healthy or treatable animals. When a cat is admitted to Feline Hope, it remains at Feline Hope 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. Feline Hope is a "free roaming" shelter. This means that 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 cat doors to the large enclosed decks outside 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, for young kittens, and when the shelter is full. Often, there is a waiting list for cats to be admitted to Feline Hope.

Statistics Feline Hope Animal Shelter, Inc. has taken in over 2,903 cats/kittens. It has adopted out 2,743(832 cats & 1,911 kittens). It has spayed/neutered 2,050 felines. These are awesome numbers for a very small group shelter. Feline Hope currently has 74 kitties looking for homes, some at the shelter and some in foster homes.

Volunteers & Business Supporters Feline Hope Animal Shelter, Inc. has clean up volunteers for the A.M. & P.M. daily. Feline Hope Animal Shelter, Inc. also has foster parents & maintenance volunteers.

Adoption activities are sponsored by local merchants like Mustang Sally’s, The Holistic Pet Shop and Outer Barks. There are also donation change cans, at a number of business sponsors on the Outer Banks of NC. That Change adds up and is great appreciated by the shelter.
