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 Rotini

Our Featured Feline

Rotini is as cute as she is funny! She has so much personality packed in to her roly-poly body and is always finding ways to entertain herself. Most of the time you can find her rolling around in the mesh tunnel where she eventually falls asleep on her back, but just far enough in where no one can reach her (hey, a girl likes her sleep!) She moves gracefully around all the other kitties (with enough confidence for three cats), and will let out a growl if anyone tries to enter her space. On that note, she may do best as either an only cat, or living with another cat that isn’t too over-the- top. It makes me sad to think that she sat in a cage for as long as she did, because she loves nothing more than exploring, playing, and being social. Thank goodness she landed here with us, as we will happily be her stepping-stone to bigger and better things!
