Support our Claws

Crash’s Landing is Grand Rapids’ largest no-kill shelter for at-risk and stray cats, devoted to taking those without a home and putting them in a loving and caring environment. We are a big family, and many of our kids have had a rough life so far.  Many have been abused, abandoned or neglected, so we do our best to make sure their home has everything they need. Keeping everyone happy, healthy, and safe is no small task. With over 80 of our guys to take care of, our monthly budget is over $14,000. Medical supplies, food, rent, utilities…and that’s just scratching the surface! We rely exclusively on donations and volunteers, and that is why it means so much to us that we have friends to help take care of us.

Because our focus is on helping at-risk cats, their medical needs can be quite extensive when they first arrive at our doorstep. Many have severe injuries or illnesses that need serious care. It is not uncommon for one of our new fuzzbutts to need an operation or two to get back on all fours.

Meet Earl Sweatshirt

Our Featured Feline

Earl is doing well and is now accepting attention from everyone without lashing out (and he is quite fond of piggy-back rides!) He loves when you pet him and will try to grab your hand – but in a much friendlier way – if you haven’t given him enough of your time. His ear wound has healed nicely post-op, and I think that alone has made him feel so much better. He is a bit of a happy drooler, loves to play with toys, and is the first one to jump up on an available lap where he will curl up and go to sleep. He will probably do best in a home without small kids because at times he is still a little over the top with his attention-getting nibbles. He will make a great lap cat and I don’t see him being with us long, especially since days of defending himself are long over.
